Bowerbank Picks Up Support

Tim Craig

The chairmen of 10 local Democratic parties announced today they are endorsing Jon Bowerbank's bid for the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor.

Eight of the ten chairmen lead local committees in Southwest Virginia, where Bowerbank lives and runs an engineering company. But Bowerbank was also endorsed by the chairs of the Prince William County and Fairfax City Democratic parties.

"Jon Bowerbank is the only Democrat in this race who can win statewide in November," said Pete Frisbie, chair of the Prince William County Democratic Committee. "Jon started a business from nothing, he knows how to balance the books in tough financial times and create jobs in the Commonwealth."

In addition to Frisbie and Joseph Harmon, chair of the Fairfax committee, Bowerbank was endorsed by Tom Graham, chair Congressional District Democratic Committee, Clinton Kegley of Bland County, Vern Presley of Buchanan County, Pete Sumpter of Lee County, Mike Fleenor of Pulaski County, Gail Montuori of Radford, Steve Banner of Russell County, and Melanie Salyer Wise County.
