Sharon believes an informed and engaged community is a well-served constituency. It is important that the community has a place at the table when decisions are being made. Community engagement is essential to striking the right balance between keeping taxes affordable and protecting the quality of life and services we value.
Community engagement is what local government is all about. Sharon enjoys hosting community budget dialogues, spearheading history initiatives, working with the Park Authority to offer summer concerts, and supporting local events. In 2005, Sharon launched an initiative to capture and tell the history of the Braddock District area. “A Look Back at Braddock” resulted in the publication of the book Braddock’s True Gold and braddockheritage.org.
Sharon organized a task force that compiled the experiences of Asian Americans who have made Fairfax County their home. This effortresulted in the book The Fairfax County Asian American History Project.
As Braddock District Supervisor, Sharon founded Braddock Nights, a program of free summer night concerts in Braddock District parks. She now hosts a new summer concert series, Evenings on the Ellipse, at the Fairfax County Government Center. Sharon was also instrumental in starting a summer farmers market at the Fairfax County Government Center featuring local vendors and food trucks.
