Dear Neighbors,

While our area ended up with little impact from Tropical Storm Isaias, many of our neighboring jurisdictions and states were not as fortunate. Isaias was a really good reminder that we need to be prepared for the next storm. Fairfax County has several ways for you to stay informed about storms and other emergencies that may impact us and our families. I encourage you to sign up and subscribe today, if you haven't already.

As we did with Isaias (and ongoing through the pandemic),

Dear Neighbors,

As our community and world have suffered through this year of COVID-19, I have dealt with my own unexpected health issues as I underwent triple bypass surgery earlier this month. The outpouring of well wishes has meant so much to me and my family!

Thanks to all for your patience as I recover during the coming weeks, and I look forward to being fully back in September. I want to give a special shout-out to the Hunter Mill District staff for continuing to provide assistance to Hunter Mill residents while I have been incapacitated – thank you Amanda, Shyamali, Paul, Jose, Gwenn, and Lisa! And to our summer intern Matt! Please be assured that my staff continues to be available to assist you with questions and concerns as needed. You can send an email to HunterMill@Fairfaxcounty.gov or contact them directly here.
 
In addition, there has been a lot of news coming from Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) and the School Board. Foremost was the decision to approve the revised recommendation of Superintendent Scott Brabrand to begin the school year on Sept. 8 with virtual learning for all students. I understand how difficult this and other decisions are for everyone involved with FCPS. Given the changing landscape within the commonwealth and our community, I respect the School Board’s decision and commit to supporting FCPS with the resources necessary to get through this most challenging time for our public schools in the modern era.

Dear Neighbors,

When COVID-19 first impacted our community in March, my office began to hear from many nonprofits and local organizations who needed assistance with obtaining donations, recruiting volunteers and reaching those in need. We were also getting a large number of requests from our neighbors who wanted to help! On March 13 we published the first version of How to Help Your Neighbors in Hunter Mill District. Unfortunately, here we are four months later and the need is still great – and in some areas it has grown. We recently updated the page and I encourage you to take a look and see if there is even some small way you can help. All of our efforts
