As a constitutional conservative, Tony seeks the office of Chairman of the Fairfax GOP because he wants to bring winning campaigns back to Fairfax County. Our diverse residents have been misled about the values and priorities of the GOP. He wants to work with community members to reinforce our commonalities and encourage them to vote Republican. He has the candidate and leadership experience to be a successful Fairfax GOP Chairman.
In 2023, Tony ran for FCPS School Board, Providence District. His campaign put him in contact with a diverse group of people who found commonality with his conservative values and concerns about our public schools. He understands the importance of continuing to engage with these residents to mitigate their stereotypes of Republicans.
