UPDATE: With Delegate Bob Marshall entering the 10th district race, Bill Fox is reconsidering his bid for office, putting his party and principles first. Virginia Virtucon has the story here.
Bill Fox, the Leesburg representative on the Loudoun County School Board, will announce his candidacy for Congress on Monday, February 10, 2014. Bill is a well known Loudoun conservative who wants to go to Washington to “shake things up” and not to retain the status quo.
Bill has an undergraduate degree in political science from Brigham Young and, a law degree from William and Mary. He has practiced law, taught school, and worked in local and federal government. Currently, Bill and his wife run a small business in Leesburg. They have three children, one a graduate of Loudoun County Public Schools, and two in high school.
Like many of us in the 10th district, Bill Fox believes we should have choices in who represents us and not just accept those who have been chosen for us for Congress and the Senate. He’s running to give us that choice. I couldn’t agree more.
A strong supporter of school choice, Bill would like to see the federal Department of Education abolished. Bill believes it should never have been established, and that there is no need for the federal bureaucracy to be involved in the education of our children. He wants to let parents decide the best educational programs for their children, not the federal government. I couldn’t agree more.
As a strong fiscal conservative, Bill believes there are alternatives to raising taxes and borrowing ever more money.
“We don’t have to continue down this path to making our country the next Greece. We need the federal government to be much, much, smaller than it is. We don’t need to do more with less, our government needs to do less! We must change course and no solutions should be off the table.
I couldn’t agree more.
