Corey Stewart Promises "Vicious" Campaign for U.S. Senate - July 13, 2017

RPV

This Sunday "Virginia" Senator Tim Kaine will be hosting a ticket fundraising reception.....in Nantucket, Massachusetts. The event is at the home of a super rich liberal donor who gave$1,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation! The donation form for the event explains how a single liberal donor can right him a check of up to $53,800!!!

Simply put: TIM KAINE MUST LOSE IN 2018!!!

Join me by giving $5, $10, $25, $50, or more to take down Tim Kaine

Who is Kaine thinking of when he takes votes in the Senate? He clearly isn't thinking about the working men and women of Virginia. Tim Kaine is too busy worrying the concerns of elitist liberal donors to remember the "little people" who he was actually elected to represent. Don't believe me? Check out the picture below:

I am proud to say that our Party does not have rich donors from Massachusetts bankrolling our operations. We rely on grassroots supports like you! Can you chip in $5, $10, $25, $50, or more to defeat Tim Kaine?

Tim Kaine already votes like he lives in Massachusetts, he is raising money in Massachusetts, so  in 2018 lets give him the chance to take a permanent vacationby electing a Senator who puts Virginia first!

Thank you for your support,

Chris Grisafe Announces Run for

Fairfax County School Board At-Large Seat

 

Veteran & national security professional seeks to 

“protect excellence in FCPS”



FAIRFAX, VA, May 31, 2017 –


Chris Grisafe has announced he is running for the Fairfax County School Board at-Large position for the upcoming special election to be held this summer. The date of the special election, which has not yet been determined, will be set by the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court in accordance with Virginia law.

 

The seat is currently held by Jeanette Hough, who was elected in 2015, and will be vacated as of May 31, 2017. Hough has announced she must leave the School Board position governing Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) as a result of her husband's service. The family is being transferred overseas.

 

A national security professional and veteran, Grisafe said he's running because "I want to protect the excellence in Fairfax County Public Schools." With a special election taking place in the summer, Grisafe will focus on reaching out to voters during a time when most Fairfax County residents are not thinking about returning to the voting booth.

 

"FCPS must continue to provide a high quality education that prepares all students for the modern workforce, higher education, and the pursuit of responsible citizenship,” added Grisafe, who also serves as a volunteer advisor and mentor to college students.

 

Having tragically lost his mother early in life, "I cannot overstate the importance and influence of the many teachers and mentors who have been consequential guide posts in my life," said Grisafe. "I know personally how important it is to empower and educate our students so they can lead successful and meaningful lives."

 

Among the nation’s largest school systems, Fairfax County Public Schools has been ground zero for social and academic experimentation. "A local school board's emphasis must be on the students," Grisafe added regarding his desire to run.

 

Talking from personal experience, he said he was greatly influenced by dedicated teachers and mentors to succeed in community college, serve in the U.S. Coast Guard, graduate from Loyola Marymount University and earn an MBA from Virginia Tech.

 

“It is imperative that we keep FCPS focused on its primary mission – to provide a high-quality education,” said Grisafe.  The current School Board’s May 25th vote to balance the budget for the next fiscal year by increasing class size is just one example of why “Fairfax County needs an at-Large School Board Member who will insist on evidence-based data in its decisions to benefit all of our students.”

 

Prioritizing rigor in the curriculum, workforce and college readiness means “the School Board must focus on good metrics, eliminating redundancy and encouraging efficiency,” said Grisafe "to enable FCPS to allocate our precious resources where they are needed most - for our teachers and our students in the classroom.”

 

Parents and community members have often been frustrated with by the School Board’s focus on issues other than student academic achievement. Fairfax County voters overwhelmingly rejected a Meals Tax Referendum last November which was advertised ostensibly to add the tax, in part at least, for education needs.

 

"I will approach policy matters with an open mind and seek to understand issues with compassion," said Grisafe. "Still, the focus must always be on the merits those issues and the data to support good decision-making."

 

Once the date of the special election is set by the court, Fairfax County residents will elect the new at-Large School Board Member to serve the balance of Hough’s term, which ends in November 2019. All registered voters in Fairfax County are able to vote for an at-Large candidate.
