Letter: Del. Simon lives his values, aids his community

Must Read

Editor: In your Oct. 21 Fairfax legislative-races endorsements, you claim that the Del. Marcus Simon (D-53rd) is “disconnected from cause-and-effect ramifications,” because he runs a modest-sized business and “doesn’t seem to connect actions of government …with their real-world implications on business owners and their employees.”

This is exactly wrong – in fact, Del. Simon, as a business owner, knows firsthand that good wages and benefits for workers and a diverse and inclusive community are crucial to a thriving business environment.

He is not asking other business owners to do anything he himself wouldn’t do. As a resident of the 53rd, I consider myself very lucky to be represented in Richmond by someone who lives his values like that.

Del. Simon is an incredibly hard-working public servant who chairs and sits on countless committees and commissions, never misses a vote or a meeting, and still finds time to show up everywhere in the community all the time, while juggling running his own business. He has my enthusiastic support and my vote.
