The campaign has $30,833.45 on hand. Walkinshaw’s strong fundraising leaves him well-positioned to win in 2019 and flip the Braddock District from red to blue.
“I’m incredibly grateful to the hundreds who contributed to our campaign,” said Walkinshaw. “Clearly there is real excitement about our progressive agenda to invest in our world-class schools, provide transportation choices, and put our county government on a path to being carbon neutral. I look forward to spending 2019 continuing to listen to the people of Braddock District and finding ways we can work together to make our wonderful community even better.”
Walkinshaw’s fundraising success comes after a December 16 kickoff event attended by more than 150 supporters and announcing endorsements from Gerry Connolly, Chairman Sharon Bulova, Braddock School Board Member Megan McLaughlin, Supervisor Jeff Mckay, At-Large School Board Member Ilryong Moon, Sheriff Stacey Kincaid, and the Fairfax County Professional Fire Fighters and Paramedics (IAFF Local 2068)
