Former Herndon Town Councilman and Vice-Mayor Dennis Husch is first out of the gate announcing that he will run for the Fairfax Board of County Supervisors for the Drainesville District. Before almost anyone knew what it was, Husch was an early advocate of the Section 287(g) Program that allows trained local authorities to assist ICE in deporting criminal illegal aliens, and he was a strong voice demanding the closure of the illegal alien day laborer center in Herndon. I can’t imagine a finer person to help Fairfax County, and there are vanishingly few who match his extensive record of public service. I wish him well and hope all of you lend him all the support you can.
On this Veterans’ Day, Gerrie Smith, Dranesville Republican Committee Chair proudly and enthusiastically announces today that Dennis Husch will seek the Dranesville District seat on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in November 2011.
“Dennis is a 27 year resident of the Dranesville District and served 16 years on the Herndon Town Council including two years as Vice Mayor. His extensive experience with municipal budgets, comprehensive land-use planning, public policy, constituent services and the governance process will provide the citizens of the District with excellent representation,” said Chairman Smith.
“I am humbled by the confidence the Dranesville Republican Committee has demonstrated by asking me to be their candidate and it is with that same humility that I face the voters once again to ask for their continued trust and support as they have done throughout my 16 years of service on the Herndon Town Council,” said Dennis.
Mr. Husch, a Vietnam veteran, has an extensive record of public service including on the Commonwealth Joint Commission on Science and Technology, the Metro Rail Phase II Tax District Commission, the State Corporation Commission – Underground Utility Damage Prevention Committee, the Fairfax County Economic Advisory Commission, and the Virginia Municipal League’s General Laws Committee and General Laws Steering Committee. Dennis has also been an active community volunteer and has served as President of the Herndon Optimist Club, as a Herndon Community Television board member, and as a Boy Scout trained leader.
“My campaign will focus on a civil discussion of issues and ideas to improve our shared quality of life in Fairfax County and my work as the next Dranesville Supervisor will be focused on constituent services, lowering taxes, limiting government intrusion and improving government accountability,” said Dennis.
“In the wake of the election results posted last week across this great nation, it is clear the voters have expressed a deep dissatisfaction with the status quo. It is the responsibility of candidates such as myself to heed the messages of the people and remember that it is they who put us in office and they can just as quickly can remove us from office. My sleeves are rolled up and I am ready to go to work for the citizens of Fairfax County, with your help and support,” said Dennis.
Dennis is a graduate of Strayer University with a degree in business, recipient of a National Security Agency Career Field Certification, an Advanced Program Management Certification and the Virginia Municipal League’s Virginia Mayors Certification in 2006 and 2007. Dennis will graduate from the University of Virginia’s Sorensen Institute Political Leaders Program in December 2010.
