Brian Schoeneman, running for the Republican nomination for Sully District supervisor in Fairfax County, received the endorsement of Steve Hunt, Fairfax County Electoral Board Chairman, former State Senate candidate, and former At-Large School Board Member.
Brian noted that “there are few people in Fairfax politics who know me better than Steve — we spent two years in the trenches on the Electoral Board together.”
Hunt’s endorsement offered strong support for Brian for supervisor:
“I know Brian very well. I fully support him in his campaign to be the next Sully District Supervisor. We served together on the Fairfax County Electoral Board where we discussed issues, family and faith during the long hours overseeing elections. I know that he has solid conservative beliefs and positions on the issues.
“I watched him reorganize a dysfunctional government office and turn it into a much more efficient operation providing better services with the budget he had. He oversaw the purchase of badly needed new election equipment, while bringing the project in on-time and saving the county millions over our original cost projections.
“I am confident that he will focus the Fairfax County Government on the right priorities and will not accept the county government’s insatiable desire to grow for the sake of growth. I know that he will be a Supervisor who we can trust to protect our rights and to ensure the county government does not stand in the way of business development. He will be an excellent Supervisor.”
Steve Hunt joins a growing list of those who have endorsed Brian including Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (VA-10th), Delegate Dave Albo, Fairfax County Supervisor Pat Herrity, former Fairfax County Republican Committee Chairman Jay McConville, Michael Thompson, Sr., Chairman and President, Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy; Elizabeth Schultz, Fairfax County School Board Member; Sang Yi, Korean American Republican Party of Virginia President; Elizabeth Minneman, Former College Republican Federation of Virginia Chairwoman (2014-15); Devon Flynn, George Mason University College Republicans Chairman and Sully resident; and Neb Yegezu, Northern Virginia Community College Republican Chairman, Annandale Campus.
