CHANTILLY, VA – The bi-partisan Virginia Police Benevolent Association (PBA) endorsed John Guevara, Republican nominee to represent Sully District on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday. The PBA interviewed both candidates in this election, with Guevara receiving overwhelming support. This is the first time John Guevara and Democrat Kathy Smith have competed for the same endorsement. John is also one of only two Republican candidates for the Board of Supervisors to receive the PBA’s endorsement.
“John Guevara’s knowledge and experience on issues that are important to law enforcement professionals makes him a deserving recipient of our endorsement. The Fairfax County Chapter of the Virginia Police Benevolent Association is proud to put our support behind John Guevara and ask that the citizens of the Sully District do the same. A vote for John Guevara is a vote for the men and women of law enforcement and the citizens they serve,” said Virginia PBA President, Joe Woloszyn.
“I have the utmost respect for the brave men and women of the Virginia Police Benevolent Association as well those they represent. I look forward to working with the PBA on public safety issues that are important to Sully District and Fairfax County,” Guevara said. “This endorsement is especially meaningful because I received the news the day after participating in this year’s National Night Out. I know that Sully District will become even safer when our communities work together with our local law enforcement and representatives on public safety issues.
The Virginia Police Benevolent Association of Virginia is “the voice of law enforcement” in the commonwealth. The association conducts political screenings of candidates for public office and endorses candidates who are committed to making law enforcement more effective.
