RICHMOND, Va.: Delegate John J. Bell (D – Loudoun) has been endorsed as a Friendly Incumbent by the Virginia Education Association Fund for Children and Public Education.
“My mother was a teacher, and every day I get to stand up for teachers and students in the House of Delegates, I remember her commitment and dedication to education,” said Delegate John J. Bell. “To receive this endorsement means the world to me, and I know my mother would be proud of the work I’m doing to make sure every child gets access to an excellent public education, including full day Kindergarten and career and technical education.”
“Our members teach young people the value of research every day, and they’ve lived it during this process,” said VEA President Jim Livingston, who chairs the Fund. “We can continue to count on [John] to do what’s best for our public schools, our students, and our education employees. This November’s elections are critical to the future of public education in our Commonwealth, and our students and educators will need friends of education in office more than ever.”
