Endorsements

I’m honored to have the support of these leaders. Having worked with them over the years, I know that they are passionate about serving their communities and building a brighter future where everyone has access to a safe, bright and prosperous future.

Jack Kennedy, Wise County/City of Norton Clerk of Court

Andria is a thought-leader in technology and broadband access. She not only can provide a vision for the future, she can show past results. For example, she spearheaded the creation of a five-city, 110-mile broadband fiber ring for Hampton Roads which will bring the fastest internet speeds of the East Coast – and lower costs – for families, schools and businesses. Andria also understands the concerns of Southwest Virginia families and the need for quality education, affordable healthcare, good-paying jobs, flood mitigation and a clean environment. Moreover, as Lieutenant Governor, I know we can count on her to increase broadband access and affordability, and ensure Southwest Virginians are connected to the opportunities of the 21st Century Virginia economy.

Karen Jackson, former Virginia Secretary of Technology

To continue being a global leader in technology and innovation, we need leaders, like Andria, who understand the complexities of this dynamic and ever-changing sector. As Lieutenant Governor, Andria will ensure we expand the reliable, affordable internet access and technology education offerings necessary to drive innovation now and into the future.

Dave Leichtman, Virginia DNC Representative and former Virginia Democrats Vice-Chair for Technology

We need statewide leaders focused on increasing access – for all Virginians – to the 21st century economy and the opportunities it provides. That means access to high-speed reliable and affordable internet, and that means fostering our innovation ecosystem to create jobs for today and tomorrow. Andria has the necessary experience expanding access at the local level and leading a tech enterprise. She is the candidate our Commonwealth needs right now. I am proud to endorse her as our next Lieutenant Governor.

Elaine Luria, Congresswoman (VA-02)

Andria’s local leadership experience means she can listen directly to Virginians and deliver on the things they need most — and we need leaders like her in Richmond. In addition to her local leadership, Andria holds years of experience as an entrepreneur and small business owner. As a former small business owner myself, I know how valuable that experience is when it comes to understanding and helping the people you serve.

Senator Dave Marsden (SD-37)

I’m supporting Andria McClellan for Lieutenant Governor for three main reasons: her local government experience, business experience and most importantly, her passion for using good policies to improve people’s lives. Her unique combination of experience and expertise on the big issues facing our Commonwealth make her the person we need as Lieutenant Governor and the only statewide candidate who brings a Tidewater perspective to the ticket.

Dr. Noelle Gabriel, MD, Norfolk School Board Member

I have worked with Andria on important education topics, such as making school buildings more energy efficient to offering increased dual enrollment opportunities for our high school students. She has consistently supported our local public schools by voting to support funding needed for teacher raises, guidance counselors, and math and reading specialists. I believe she will be a Lieutenant Governor who prioritizes education because she understands the value of what a high-quality equitable education can do for all of Virginia‘s children.
