Election: Chairman, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors February
Because Gerald Connolly was elected to the House
of Representatives 11th District, Fairfax County is left without
a Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, a Special
Election for Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors
will be held. All qualified voters in Fairfax County are eligible
to vote in this election.
Connolly won Virginia’s 11th Congressional
District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives Nov. 4. He
has served as county chairman since 2004 and resigned from his
current position Jan. 3. Two current county elected officials,
Supervisors Sharon Bulova (D-Braddock) and Patrick Herrity (R-Springfield),
have kicked off their campaigns to replace Connolly. Independent
candidate Carey Campbell is also running for county chairman.
The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Leewood
residents will use our polling place
St. John's United Methodist Church,
5312 Backlick Road, Springfield, VA

Forget to Vote Tuesday, November 4th 2008
When all the votes are counted, we will have our
next President of the United States. Open any paper, turn on any
news program, and the headlines are focused on this heated race.
This vote will decide how our country fares for the next four
years. Whether you are supporters for the Obama-Biden ticket,
or solidly behind the McCain-Palin ticket, your vote can make
the difference. Don't let the opportunity to have your voice heard
pass you by. When you cast your vote, you will be helping to shape
our future rather than let our future shape itself.
The right to vote in American politics has come
a long way. It was in 1870 when the 15th Amendment gave voting
rights to all men, regardless of race. Women were given the privilege
in 1920. Native Americans, in 1924, achieved the privilege and
right to vote. Those were all hard-won campaigns to have the right
to cast a ballot that would determine our future. The entire structure
of our government is based on ordinary citizens voting for representation
by electing our political leaders. And yet, some people think
of voting as a chore, or don't want to vote because they think
their vote doesn't count. Some people don't vote because they
don't like either candidate. Yet, voting is one of the most important
rights and responsibilities we have as Americans.
Read those news stories, visit each candidate's
website, learn about their positions on issues important to you,
and make an informed decision when you cast your vote. Doing a
little research will reveal where the candidates' stand on issues
like the war; affordable health insurance; rising food costs,
housing costs and gas prices; and more importantly what they plan
to do to resolve these issues. Decide what matters to you and
what matters to the candidates. Then vote for the candidate who
best mirrors your own beliefs.
You’ll want to make sure that you are an informed voter.
Remember, elections aren’t just about electing Presidents.
You might also see candidates on the ballot for the U.S. Senate
and House of Representatives, Governor, the state legislature,
city, council, and township offices, and judges.
