FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 13, 2019
Round Hill — Today, Tia Walbridge, Democratic nominee for Blue Ridge Supervisor, announced Del. Danica Roem (D-Manassas) has endorsed her campaign for the Loudoun Board of Supervisors.
“Del. Roem has been an incredible leader in Northern Virginia, and I’m so honored to have her support,” Walbridge said. “She is steadfastly focused on practical local issues for her constituents, advocates tirelessly for them in Richmond, and always remains grounded in her local community and their needs and concerns. Her commitment to her community and to our Commonwealth is impressive and inspiring.”
"I'm proud to endorse Tia Walbridge for supervisor,” Roem said. “During the last 2.5 years since we met at an Emerge Virginia bootcamp, I've seen Tia bring a much-needed voice for both environmental stewardship and property rights while working to make Virginia a more inclusive commonwealth. Tia shares my values of controlling sprawl, fixing our existing roads, preventing the Bi-County Parkway, making it possible for more people to work in the same communities where they live and welcoming people because of who they are, not despite it."
Del. Roem’s endorsement follows endorsements from several other federal, state, and local representatives, including Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton, state Sen. Jennifer Boysko, and Del. John Bell. Walbridge has also been endorsed by NoVA Labor, Loudoun Education Association PAC, ASCEND, People For The American Way’s Next Up Victory Fund, Vote Mama PAC, which supports pro-choice moms running for office, Run For Something, and a score of "51/50" from Equality Loudoun, a group focused on promoting LGBTQ+ rights in Loudoun County.
Tia is a sheep farmer, small business owner, and mom to two young girls in the Loudoun public school system. She was appointed to sit on the Virginia Agricultural Council, is a board member of Loudoun County Farm Bureau, and a founding member of Save Rural Loudoun. She also serves on the board of Dandelion Meadow, a nonprofit that provides facilities for women battling addiction in Loudoun County.
