Progress4VA1 Independent PAC 2018-09-19T06:49:20+00:00

Progress4VA1 Independent PAC

Progress4VA1 is an independent expenditure only political action committee (PAC) registered with the Federal Election Commission and Virginia Department of Elections, and affiliated with the Stafford Indivisible Community Action Network (SICAN), a local, grassroots organization energized by volunteer activists from the Stafford, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and King George area.

Progress4VA1 shares the vision and values of SICAN and is dedicated to helping improve the lives of Virginia residents by advocating for progressive policies that will make the Rappahannock region a better place to live, work and raise a family.

To achieve our vision we need to elect candidates who advocate for progressive policies that promote a safe and secure environment, economic opportunity, excellent schools, sustainably managed economic growth and development, appropriate infrastructure development, and a culture of mutual respect, responsibility and support. Therefore, Progress4VA1 will support the nomination and election of candidates to federal, Virginia state, and local offices who support these objectives.

All right folks... this is it. It's time to turn Stafford BLUE!

It is time to vote for the Party of the People. AND it all starts local! Our democracy is under attack, and we can send a message to the rest of the commonwealth, to the rest of the country, that we will stand and be heard! Our candidates need your support, your donations and your time. Let's tighten up our boot laces and get to work. Stafford is the front line of this battle for democracy, for the people.

Candidate Tinesha Allen, the Democratic nominee for the Griffis-Widewater District seat on the Stafford County Board of Supervisors, is hosting a Campaign Kick-Off at 2 pm on June 22 at the Holiday Inn Express, 15 Salisbury Drive, off 610 behind the Wawa. The event is being catered by Big Bad W Pitt BBQ and features special guest Jennifer Carroll Foy, Virginia Delegate for House District 2.

At the age of 10, Tinesha Allen’s family immigrated from Guyana, the only English-speaking country in South America, to the United States where there were better and more opportunities. She quickly took advantage of these opportunities graduating Valedictorian of her middle school in Brooklyn, New York, and in the top one percent of her high school. Allen earned a Posse Foundation full tuition leadership scholarship to Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, where she graduated with a degree in Political Science.

After college she married and started a family. They relocated to the great state of Virginia in 2014 because they felt it was an outstanding place to raise their daughter. They eventually chose Stafford because it offered the best environment for family growth and provided a great scenic and idyllic suburban community. Allen truly appreciates the workman like attitudes of the Griffis-Widewater residents and how friendly they are with each other. The candidate is currently a rideshare driver for Uber and Lyft while waiting to start nursing school in the fall of 2019 at Shenandoah University. Her husband is an elementary math and science teacher and their daughter is a soon-to-be 3rd-grade student.

This hard-working mother believes Stafford needs change. "We need someone who says I HEAR YOU when you say our schools are crowded and underfunded,” Allen stated. “I HEAR YOU when you say we need someone who will stand up for our teachers, firefighter, EMTs, sheriff deputies, and all public servants who work tirelessly to protect and improve our county but are not paid as such. I HEAR YOU when you say we need someone who is not tied to special interests and deep pocketed individuals, but instead will listen, is transparent and will truly serve the interest of their fellow residents. I HEAR YOU when you say we need someone who offers realistic ideas and solutions, someone who is a leader and not an opportunist, someone who will work with others and someone who will always serve Stafford each and every day, and not just when they are running for re-election.”

Because I have been needed at home assisting my wife with her broken shoulder (and now we are in New Jersey until Saturday morning), I have not been able to assist Elizabeth Warner with gathering signatures to ensure she is on the ballot. She is running for Stafford County School Board in the Griffis-Widewater District. We need your help getting signatures from Griffis-Widewater residents. The deadline is Tuesday, June 11. Can you volunteer to help us knock on doors, stand in front of stores at Stafford Marketplace, etc., this weekend. Contact me and I can send you her signature page. Please gather as many signatures as you can and then agree to meet me or Elizabeth on Monday to deliver the pages. Thank you all so much for your help. ... See MoreSee Less

https://t.co/fuguZuCZMQ #VA01 @RobWittman vote of the day (Mar'13): Voted for a bill that mandates work requirements for TANF recipients. So we can put burdensome requirements on the poor but not reasonable regulations on businesses?

#VA01's @RobWittman says "we must first address our [military] readiness crisis"

@POTUS cancels military readiness exercises with S. Korea to appease Kim Jung-Un

Rob does nothing to advocate for continuing these exercises.

Why so #SilentBob?
