Herrity Announces Endorsements from over 200 Local Business Leaders
Herrity Announces Business Leaders Support & Small Business Tour
 
West Springfield, Virginia- Following the conclusion of a successful fundraising quarter anchored by his Annual Business Leaders Lunch, Pat Herrity announced the endorsement of over 200 local business leaders.
 
“I am honored to have so many of Fairfax County's business leaders supporting my re-election effort this year. As Chief Financial Officer of a small veteran-owned business, I understand the importance of small businesses in our communities and the challenges those businesses encounter,” said Herrity. “As a Supervisor, I have led efforts to reform our zoning and permitting processes and make the County more business-friendly.”
 
“Pat understands what is needed to create an environment where all Fairfax County businesses can flourish and continue to grow,” said Arthur “Bud” Morrissette, President, Interstate Companies. “It is impossible to find a stronger advocate for responsible growth and moving Fairfax County’s economy forward than Pat Herrity.”
 
Pat also announced the kick-off of his small business tour throughout the Springfield Magisterial District and the surrounding area. The first stop will be Peterson’s Ice Cream in Clifton. Details will be released shortly.

Background:
Supervisor Herrity’s support in the business community is broad-based and significantly different than the typical Supervisor support from the development community. This support reflects his 30 plus years of leadership in the business community. Supervisor Herrity has served as an officer, Board member and Executive committee member of several business organizations. He is known for being an innovator and a leader in the business groups with which he has been involved. As a result, Pat has received some of the highest awards of recognition that the groups offer, including:
•Northern Virginia Technology Council’s CFO of the Year Community Service Award
•Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce’s Chairman’s Award
•Northern Virginia Technology Council’s President’s Award
•SmartCEO Magazine’s Top Chief Financial Officer Award
