Excellent news from Eileen Filler-Corn's campaign. The election is in 11 days. Go Eileen!
Former Delegate Jim Dillard (R-41) today endorsed Eileen Filler-Corn in the March 2nd special election for the 41st district House of Delegates seat, citing her commitment to public education.

“As a Republican I am willing to cross party lines to support a moderate who cares strongly about providing excellent educational opportunities for our children in our public schools and institutions of higher learning. Unlike her opponent, who believes we spend 'excessive' amounts on public education, Eileen will fight to get our fair share of education dollars to maintain our superior schools in Fairfax County. That is why I am proud to support Eileen Filler-Corn for Delegate,” Dillard said.

Dillard chaired the education committee in the House of Delegates and represented the 41st district from 1972 to 2005.

“Delegate Dillard has always been a tireless advocate for our public schools. I am excited and honored to have his support in this critical special election,” said Filler-Corn, thanking Dillard for his endorsement.
