Money and signs can’t buy you an election! However, a strong grassroots base and hard work will buy you a victory. John Cook has now been declared the winner of the open Board of Supervisors seat for Braddock district, and he will join fellow Republicans Pat Herrity and Michael Frey on the Board.
Here is Cook’s victory statement:
“Today the results from the Fairfax County Board of Elections show that I have been elected the next Braddock District Supervisor. I thank the Board of Elections for its difficult but professional work today counting the votes that were cast.
I want to thank the voters of Braddock District for the confidence they have placed in me. There is no greater honor in public life than to be selected by your neighbors to be their representative in government. I look forward to serving my Braddock District neighbors on the Board of Supervisors. Working together, we will strengthen our neighborhoods, bring new and innovative ideas to the challenges we face, and bring a fresh voice of fiscal responsibility to the County.
I want to thank my campaign chairman Tessie Wilson, Supervisor Pat Herrity, my campaign staff and all the volunteers who made this grass-roots victory possible. Most of all, I thank my family, whose love and support made this race possible.”
Congratulations to John Cook!
