FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 17, 2019
Round Hill —Today, Tia Walbridge, Democratic nominee for Blue Ridge Supervisor, announced that her campaign raised over $55,000 in the second fundraising quarter of the year, with 90 percent of contributions coming in at $200 and under. That puts Walbridge’s overall fundraising for the cycle over $120,000.
“There was a time when big money had a stranglehold over our politics, from the local level to the national level,” Walbridge said. “But times are changing and people are paying attention. This is what grassroots looks like. This is what it looks like when we all chip to help make the change we want to see in our community.”
Tia is a sheep farmer and small business owner. She was appointed to sit on the Virginia Agricultural Council and is a board member of Loudoun County Farm Bureau. She also serves on the board of Dandelion Meadow, a nonprofit that provides facilities for women battling addiction in Loudoun County. She's endorsed by Loudoun Education Association PAC, Laborers' International Union of North America, Rep. Jennifer Wexton, several state and local representatives, and Vote Mama PAC, a group dedicated to supporting mothers running for office.
