Elected and community leaders from across Prince William County and Manassas join Delegates Josh Cole, Danica Roem, and Clint Jenkins in endorsing Ayala’s candidacy.
WOODBRIDGE, VA — Several elected and community leaders from Prince William County and Manassas are endorsing Delegate Hala Ayala in her bid for Lieutenant Governor. This group of leaders include Dumfries Mayor Derrick Woods, Prince William County Supervisor Vic Angry, and community leader and wife of the late Supervisor John Jenkins, Ernestine Jenkins.
"Hala has served our community for many years. She commits herself to listening and finding solutions for all whom she serves,” said Dumfries Mayor Derrick Woods. “As Lieutenant Governor, I know Hala will put service first, and that's why I am proud to support her.”
"The Lieutenant Governor for the Commonwealth of Virginia should represent all Virginians. That is why I will be supporting Hala Ayala for Lieutenant Governor for the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said community leader Ernestine Jenkins. “Hala has earned the respect of her peers and established a powerful network of everyday Virginians committed to advocating for working families. While Hala is like a daughter to me and my late husband, Supervisor John D. Jenkins, all will feel the personal connection that those close to her feel. She is both influential and personally motivated to do what’s best for the Commonwealth. I firmly support Hala Ayala for Lieutenant Governor for the Commonwealth of Virginia and ask you to do the same."
“I am very honored to have the support of these truly amazing leaders of Prince William County,” said Delegate Ayala. “Through their combined experiences, they have done so much for Prince William County, Manassas, and Virginia, and to have their endorsement means the world to me. They are my inspirations, my compasses, and my rocks. My successes in the General Assembly are in no small part due to their guidance and leadership, and I am so proud to have them stand with me while I run to become Virginia’s next Lieutenant Governor.”
