(September 25th) – The Virginia Police Benevolent Association, Fairfax Chapter is proud to announce the endorsement of Pat Herrity for Fairfax Board of Supervisors Springfield District. Supervisor Herrity met with the Fairfax Police Benevolent Association screening and endorsement committee on September 14 where he earned the Association’s endorsement and full support.

“Pat Herrity continues to be a strong supporter of the law enforcement professionals working hard to keep Fairfax County among one of the safest, and best places to live not only in Virginia, but nationwide. Our common goal of public safety and professionalism has created a strong relationship with Supervisor Herrity and we look forward to working with him during his next term in office” Joe Woloszyn, President Virginia Police Benevolent Association.

Supervisor Herrity stated “I am extremely grateful to have the support of the men and women of our police department. I am proud to have led the effort on the Board to address our public safety staffing crisis, fight efforts to take away important legal protections from law enforcement and take on the Commonwealth Attorney in Fairfax who is failing to do his job. With rising major crime and shoplifting rates impacting our citizens’ lives and the cost of goods, it is more important than ever to have a strong police department. I look forward to continuing my work with the Police Benevolent Association to prioritize public safety and fight efforts to demoralize the department.”
