(West Springfield, VA) –Kerry Bolognese, the Republican nominee in the 41st District Special Election, received the endorsements of both Fairfax County School Board members representing the district. Liz Bradsher, the member for Springfield District, and Tessie Wilson, the member for Braddock District, both endorsed Bolognese as the best candidate for Fairfax County schools.

"Kerry Bolognese is a strong advocate for education in Fairfax County,” said Tessie Wilson. “Kerry's years of experience in higher education give him the unique insight on helping our children prepare for college and the work force.”

“Kerry Bolognese, a parent of three county graduates and now a grand parent with a grand child in Orange Hunt, has been personally invested in our county schools for years. He continues to be a caring member of our community and his experience in higher education will strengthen his efforts to bring more of our county tax dollars back to our schools and students,” said Liz Bradsher. “Kerry has been and continues to be invested in our schools, our community and county. He will be a strong advocate for all of us in Richmond.”

Bolognese is a Vice-President of the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, which serves public universities and research institutions in America, including George Mason, UVA and VirginiaTech. He has three children who graduated from Fairfax County High Schools, and a grandchild currently at Orange-Hunt Elementary.

“I’m proud to have the support of our local school board members,”said Bolognese. “I hope to have the opportunity to work them in keeping more of our Fairfax County tax dollars in our schools, rather than sending them downstate.”

The special election will be held Tuesday, March 2nd. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. at their normal voting location.

The 41st District of the Virginia House of Delegates includes parts of Springfield, Burke and Fairfax Station. The seat became vacant when then-Delegate David Marsden was elected to the State Senate.
