On March 2nd, I was honored to win the Special Election in our district, following the recent election of Delegate David Marsden to the Virginia State Senate. I would like to express my most sincere thanks to all of the nearly 11,500 voters who turned out to participate in this important opportunity to select the newest member of the House of Delegates, with the responsibility of representing the 41st district in the General Assembly of this great Commonwealth.
On March 3, the day after the election, I was sworn in on the floor of the House of Delegates in Richmond, in the midst of the 2010 legislative session. Immediately, I assumed the humbling responsibility of casting votes on your behalf and evaluating proposed new legislation that is certain to affect all aspects of our daily lives in the future. In each and every case, I gave serious consideration to the potential merits of these bills, based on what I believed to be in the best interests of our district, of Fairfax County, and of the Commonwealth as a whole.
Following the close of the legislative session, I returned home and immediately turned my attention to establishing a district office. It is my goal to ensure that all constituents will be able to reach me and communicate their views on the pressing issues of our time including; protecting our world class education in Fairfax County, increasing employment prospects in our community, improving transportation and many others. I welcome you to reach out to me often and regularly.
Please keep me fully informed of your concerns and those of your family, so that I can most effectively represent this community and continue to enhance the quality of life for all of our residents. I consider one of my core responsibilities to be communicating regularly with the citizens of the district. I encourage you to join my e-mail list, to receive bi-monthly newsletters with updates about events around the district, town hall meetings, and other information for residents of our community.
Thank you again for placing your trust in me. Please do not hesitate to contact me atDelEFiller-Corn@house.virginia.gov or by phone at 571-249-3453. I look forward to serving the 41st District to the very best of my ability and I extend my most sincere appreciation to you all for giving me this distinct honor and privilege.
Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn
