Connolly ‘a tenacious advocate’ for Fairfax 

We write to congratulate our good friend, colleague, and congressman, Gerry Connolly on the 20th anniversary of his exceptional service to our community in elected office as a district supervisor, chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, and now as our congressman. Since 1995, when he was first elected Providence District Supervisor, Gerry has continued a tradition of strong leadership in Providence.

Politics on Menu at Connolly's St. Patrick's Day Fete

By Karen Goff

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va. 11th) celebrated the wearing o’ the green with more than 1,000 elected officials and local supporters at his 21st annual St. Patrick’s Day Fete on Tuesday.

A highlight of the event at the Kena Temple Ballroom in Fairfax was Democratic Presidential Candidate Straw Poll.

I was honored to receive the Washington Post endorsement today. Here's what they said:

In District 11, Rep.  Gerald E. Connolly is the lone incumbent seeking reelection in Northern Virginia. A former chairman of Fairfax County’s Board of Supervisors, Mr. Connolly, a Democrat, is a dominant figure in Northern Virginia politics; few people are as well-versed and effective in addressing the problems of federal workers.

Over 1,000 Virginia Democrats and supporters gathered this year for Congressman Connolly's 21st Annual St. Patrick's Day Fete. The fete - the largest annual political gathering in Virginia - features corned beef, cabbage, salmon, Irish music, and a straw poll. This year's contest pitted potential Democratic presidential nominees against each other in the first Virginia straw poll of the 2016 election.

Corned beef. Cabbage. Music, dancing, and politics. That's right, it's almost time for our 21st Annual St. Patrick's Day Fete! In 1995, my wife, Smitty, and I hosted our first annual St, Patrick's Day Fete, right in our home. Since then, the gathering of neighbors, friends, and supporters has grown from fewer than 100 to over 1,200 attendees - and this year will be bigger and better than ever.

Last night, I was reelected to my fourth term representing Virginia's 11th district in the U.S. House of Representatives. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank the hundreds of thousands of people who supported my campaign, whether by donating money, volunteering, or casting their ballot for me.

Since my first run for Providence District Supervisor in 1995, I have hosted an annual St. Patrick's Day Fete. The event has grown from a small gathering of friends at my home to one of the highlights of the Democratic political season.
