Message from Jon:

Over the past two years, it has been my distinct honor to serve as a member of the 2016-2018 City of Fairfax City Council. I am proud of the work your City Council has done this term.

For example, the City partnered with Association of Government Accountants ( to produce the City's first Citizen Centric Report (CCR). As we announced in December, the process of working with teams of students looking at the City's data was very valuable in producing this inaugural CCR report. I was pleased to share this effort with local reporter Elina Shirazi highlighting how we are focused on making information available to our community.

In addition, the City was recognized for its work in two categories this year by the Virginia Municipal League ( The City, in partnership with the City School Board, received recognition in the Stairway to Success program for its work in early childhood education. The City also maintained its Silver Award status in the Go Green Initiative for its implementation of specific environmental policies and practical actions that reduce the carbon emissions generated by both the local government and the broader community. These are just a few examples of how things are moving forward across the City of Fairfax.  

I am asking for your continued support as I run for re-election this May 1.

As a member of your next team on City Council, I will continue to:

  • work to ensure you get value for your tax dollars with top-notch services;
  • work with businesses and neighbors to keep our economy moving forward and;
  • work to maintain our City’s unique community and sense of place.

I would like to hear directly from you regarding what is working, as well as areas where improvements are needed. Please email me your thoughts at

I remain excited for the future of our City and I ask for your vote on May 1, 2018!
