What our community has to say about Senator Favola

There is no one in Richmond who understands local government better than Senator Barbara Favola. Whether from her years of service on the Arlington County Board or now the General Assembly, she’s a champion of human services needs and someone who’s always fighting for what’s best for Fairfax County and Northern Virginia. I’m proud to endorse her for reelection to the Virginia State Senate.”
— Jeff McKay, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors
Senator Favola hit the ground running when she arrived in the state senate. She is a very effective lawmaker and respected by colleagues on both sides of the aisle. I am particularly proud of the work she has done in helping foster youth and reforming the juvenile justice system. Because of her leadership, juveniles must now receive mental health evaluations before they are sentenced in JDR court.”
— Janet Howell, State Senator, 32nd District
Barbara is a tireless advocate for our community, especially our children and those in need. She is a good listener and collaborator, as well as a skilled legislator. I hope you will join me in strongly supporting Barbara so that she can continue to bring her thoughtful, caring leadership to benefit our schools, community and the Commonwealth.”
— Barbara Kanninen, Arlington School Board Member
Barbara has been an effective leader on educational issues in Richmond. She understands that school systems need flexibility and resources to ensure that every child receives a quality education. We need her expertise and I wholeheartedly endorse her for a third term in the State Senate.”
— Janie Strauss, Fairfax County School Board Member
