Since launching his campaign on November 10, 2018, Walkinshaw has raised $86,013. With 642 contributions since launching, Walkinshaw has the strong grassroots support to win the June primary and flip the Braddock District seat from red to blue.
“I’m most excited by the hundreds of contributions we’ve received from all corners of the Braddock District,” said Walkinshaw. “To have so many of our neighbors put their faith in me is humbling and I look forward to continuing to listen to the people of Braddock and working to earn their support and confidence.”
Walkinshaw announced last week the endorsements of 5 key labor unions representing Fairfax workers: UFCW Local 400, IBT Local 639, IUPAT District Council 51, IBEW Local 26, and the KML Carpenters. These unions join IAFF Local 2068, Gerry Connolly, Chairman Sharon Bulova, Braddock School Board Member Megan McLaughlin, Supervisor Jeff McKay, At-Large School Board Member Ilryong Moon, and Sheriff Stacey Kincaid in their support of James Walkinshaw’s campaign.
