I am so grateful and excited for the broad support we’ve received throughout the Commonwealth thus far. I am proud of the momentum we’re building, and this is a testament that this is truly a people-powered campaign.
Today’s grand jury decision is both disturbing, yet completely unsurprising, because our justice system too often fails to value Black lives. My heart goes out to the friends and family of Breonna Taylor. She deserves better, and so does our country.
My deepest condolences to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s family and friends as we mourn her loss together. Her commitment to equity and gender equality changed our country for the better. On the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg was our firewall to protect civil rights, voting rights, and everything that we fight for.
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 listens and brings people together to move Virginia forward," said Cole. "During these uncertain times, preparedness and compassion are needed from our leaders. From her leadership in the community and in the House of Delegates, I know that she will bring those values to the table.”
I’m running for Lieutenant Governor because I believe my life experiences enable me to be a bridge builder so we can move Virginia forward into a strong, just, and prosperous future. I think that’s what our families want — someone who understands their experiences and can bring people together to make progress in their day-to-day lives.
