The Fredericksburg Area Association of REALTORS® (FAAR) announces its endorsement of Mary Katherine Greenlaw for Mayor of the City of Fredericksburg. The general election was scheduled to take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 and also includes seats for At-Large City Council members and School Board. Governor Northam has postponed the election until Tuesday, May 19, 2020. The City of Fredericksburg is encouraging all citizens to vote by mail. The last day to request an absentee ballot is May 12, 2020.
“As a City resident and an active REALTOR® downtown, I am personally very interested in this year’s election,” states FAAR Public Policy Committee Chairman Chip Taylor. “There is no question that the City of Fredericksburg has become a premier destination to live, work, and visit. After a comprehensive interview process, the FAAR Public Policy Committee sees great value in the continued leadership of Mayor Mary Katherine Greenlaw during this unprecedented time of upheaval caused by COVID-19. Mayor Greenlaw is a collaborative leader with a deep knowledge of the budget process and a commitment to bringing us back to where we were before the coronavirus.”
The FAAR Public Policy Committee conducted candidate interviews in early April in anticipation of a May election. The group interviewed both candidates running for Mayor and all three candidates running for the At-Large seats.
