This morning Brian Moran received a large number of endorsements from local elected officials and community leaders at the Old Town Hall in the City of Fairfax. I was impressed with the gathering of people at the event because so many of them have devoted their time to public service. More importantly, they do so not out of a need for power but out of a desire to improve the communities in which they live. Many of them, such as Councilman Dan Drummond who served as the MC of the event, have implemented grassroots campaigns while running for office and truly engaged the public in a productive dialogue after being elected. This is the type of public service that Brian Moran has illustrated and it appears as though it’s a large reason behind why these officials are supporting his campaign.
Throughout the day I will be posting videos of some of the speakers, including Brian himself. The first one that I’m posting is of a representative from the City of Fairfax Professional Fire Fighters and Paramedics Local 2702 and former School Board Member Bob Frye (who is also currently a member of the Board of Visitors for Longwood University). In announcing these endorsements, the speakers focused on how Brian has a history of fighting for Virginia and how he will continue to do so if elected governor. It’s also noteworthy that these endorsements represent two important groups in our community – those who protect our communities and those who help to educate the public.
