FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 28, 2019
Round Hill — Today, Tia Walbridge, Democratic nominee for Blue Ridge Supervisor, announced People For the American Way’s Next Up Victory Fund has endorsed her campaign for the Loudoun Board of Supervisors. People for the American Way is a progressive advocacy organization that has been working for 30 years to fight right-wing extremism and defend constitutional values. Next Up Victory Fund helps young progressive candidates win races for state and local offices across the country.
“I’m so excited to have the support of Next Up Victory Fund,” Walbridge said. “While federal campaigns gain steam for 2020, it’s vital that we remember not to lose sight of the state and local races that are just around the corner in Virginia. Races whose outcomes will have a direct impact on the lives of millions of families. I’m so grateful that organizations like Next Up recognize the importance of local races and are dedicated to building our bench with excited young candidates ready to make change.”
“Tia Walbridge is a fierce advocate for rural Loudon County and the right choice for the Blue Ridge District seat,” PFAW Political Director Lizet Ocampo said. “Her work on agriculture and conservation issues speaks for itself, as do her efforts to make sure the voices of local farmers and other constituents are heard on the Loudon County Board of Supervisors. We are proud to support her fight for integrity and transparency on the board.”
People For The American Way’s Next Up Victory Fund endorsement follows endorsements from NoVA Labor, numerous regional unions, Loudoun Education Association PAC, Vote Mama PAC, which supports pro-choice moms running for office, Run For Something, Rep. Jennifer Wexton and several state and local representatives, 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. 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.
