McLean, VA -- (June 2, 2015) Republican candidate for Dranesville Supervisor, Jennifer Chronis, announces that she has raised over $100,000 in a mere fifteen weeks of campaigning. In the most recent fundraising report, April 1 through May 27, she raised over $45,000.
In a statement, Chronis said "I am invigorated by the support I have received from the community. Every time I knock on a door, go to a community meeting, or have coffee with a small group of people, I hear loud and clear that stronger leadership and a fresh perspective are desperately needed on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. I have received support from Dranesville residents that span the political spectrum; Republicans, Independents, and Democrats. This most recent fundraising report shows that Dranesville voters are ready for a change."
