Statement from Chairman McKay

February 5, 2022
To the Fairfax County Community, This was a difficult week for Virginians. Two officers at Bridgewater College in central Virginia were fatally shot on Tuesday. While at a meeting with colleagues from across the Commonwealth, I offered my condolences to officials from Rockingham County. My thoughts are with the family and friends of the officers who were killed and to the Bridgewater College community. There are a number of conversations and issues that must be discussed as a result of this tragedy. Right now, I want to focus on mental health. As I have said in a past newsletter, due to the pandemic, many of us have faced isolation, anxiety, and uncertainty, and it takes a toll on our wellbeing. This increase in mental health problems combined with less access to services can result in tragedies like we saw this week. I want to be clear however that in Fairfax County we have the resources to address these issues. We want our residents to access those resources, and know that they are available whenever needed. Learn more about what is available here. Read more

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
