Connolly Statement on Chairman Sharon Bulova’s Announcement She Will Not Seek Re-election
Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA), former Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, released the following statement on Chairman Sharon Bulova’s announcement that she will not seek re-election:
“I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Sharon Bulova for more than 20 years and she is a true community treasure. Under her leadership, she turned the idea of the Virginia Railway Express into a reality. As Chairman, she guided the County through the worst of the Great Recession, while still maintaining the critical investments and services that Fairfax residents have come to expect. And over her years of public service, she has helped transform our community into one that is envied by all others.
“Sharon’s time on the Board will be remembered for her decency and commitment to collegiality, her willingness to listen to her constituents and bring people together, and her drive to leave Fairfax a better place for future generations. I want to thank my dear friend for her lifetime of service and the undeniable mark she has left on our community.”
