Statement from Chairman McKay

January 14, 2022
To the Fairfax County Community, On Wednesday, the 2022 session of the General Assembly began and the new state leadership begins their term on Saturday. I want to thank Governor Northam for his service to the Commonwealth and I look forward to finding common ground and working with Governor Youngkin and his administration. While Fairfax County does not introduce laws to the General Assembly, we do work with our legislators to lobby for the needs of our residents, especially during session. This includes opportunities to fund the priorities of local government. With the state having a budget surplus this year, we are hopeful that we can make progress in areas where there are great needs for state investment. Two of these areas include funding for education and mental health. You can see our entire legislative package here. Read more

Statement from Chairman McKay

January 6, 2022
To the Fairfax County Community, A year ago today, our U.S. Capitol was attacked. The violence threatened our Vice President, members of Congress, Senators, police officers, Hill staffers, and the other employees inside that building who work every day on our behalf. Sadly that day, one police officer died, others have since committed suicide, and dozens more still live with the physical and emotional scars. Some of these officers were even part of our Fairfax County community. My thoughts are with their families and friends today. Our trust in the stability of our democratic process was also shaken on January 6. It is important for all of us to remember across the political spectrum, that democracy is something we must always defend. As we move forward, humility, empathy, and listening to one another is how we must come together. While I know that I will never forget what happened on January 6, 2021, we must always remember that our strong democratic values are what makes our country special. Read more

December 17, 2021
To the Fairfax County Community, Yesterday, the Board received an update from the Health Department regarding the omicron variant of COVID-19, COVID-19 caseloads, and our continued vaccination efforts. I detail that information below. This certainly isn't where we would like to be close to two years after the pandemic began in the United States. We still have a lot to learn about this virus, but we have a powerful public health tool at our fingertips: the vaccine. In Fairfax County we are proud to have administered over 1.9 million vaccine doses and urge that everyone get vaccinated or get their booster (if eligible) as soon as possible. This will strengthen a critical layer of defense against COVID-19, as more contagious variants emerge. As I always say, the vaccine is safe and effective at preventing serious illness, hospitalizations, and death. Everyone must participate to achieve the highest level or immunity in our community to slow the spread of the virus and to keep people out of the hospitals. Please, sign up for your vaccine appointment here. It's heartbreaking to think of the thousands that will not be with us this holiday season and many may be fearful to see their families and friends. While I urge you to be careful and thoughtful over these next few weeks, there are things you can do, like get tested, to make sure you gather safely. Read the Health Department's guidance here.
