McLean -- Jennifer Chronis, Republican candidate for the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in the Dranesville District, has announced her most recent fundraising report. In July and August, Chronis reported raising over $99,000 in contributions from supporters across Fairfax County, compared to her opponent's $62,000.  She continues to outraise the two-term incumbent at every turn, this time by nearly $37,000. Chronis goes into the final weeks of the campaign with over $107,000 cash on hand, nearly 1/3 more than her opponent, a clear sign that she has the momentum and energy on her side to win. 

In response, Chronis stated "In less than two months, voters in the Dranesville District will go to the polls and select their next Supervisor. My campaign has been focused on the issues that are important to voters, and I am confident that my message of fresh, vibrant ideas and stronger leadership will carry me to victory. This fundraising report is yet another clear indication that voters in Dranesville are ready for change."

Chronis continued, "My opponent likes to make campaign promises, but his record indicates he doesn't deliver. His tenure on the Board of Supervisors has brought us 17% higher taxes in the last three years alone and our public schools are facing a $100 million shortfall due to his budget decisions. Job growth and wages have stagnated in Fairfax County, and we are home to the most congested roads in the nation. Despite these unimpressive metrics, my opponent voted a 27% pay raise for himself. This is not the kind of leadership Dranesville deserves. I look forward tobringing strong, positive leadership to the Board that makes our County more business-friendly, relieves traffic congestion, prioritizes our education resources to support students and teachers, and delivers more efficient and responsive government."

 Chronis is a graduate of Fairfax County Public Schools and the University of Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce. She has lived in Fairfax County for 18 years. She served in the U.S. Army for more than two decades and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2010. She recently served as an IBM Vice President responsible for more than $600 million in annual revenues.
