Vanity Fair: “SHE SHOULD BE GOVERNOR—THAT’S IT”: IN VIRGINIA, JENNIFER CARROLL FOY IS FIGHTING TO MAKE HISTORY

May 27, 2021
By Danielle Campoamor When asked to describe Virginia gubernatorial candidate Jennifer Carroll Foy in one word, Gloria Steinem doesn’t miss a beat. “Gift,” she says in a joint Zoom interview with the candidate. Current Virginia governor Ralph Northam can’t run for reelection. Virginia is the only state in the country where governors cannot serve two consecutive terms, leaving a wide-open race for his successor. Among the five Democratic candidates—former governor Terry McAuliffe, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, former delegate Carroll Foy, Delegate Lee J. Carter, and state Senator Jennifer McClellan—Carroll Foy earned Steinem’s endorsement for what Steinem says are two reasons: who she is and what she has accomplished as a former public defender and former Virginia state delegate.  The post Vanity Fair: “SHE SHOULD BE GOVERNOR—THAT’S IT”: IN VIRGINIA, JENNIFER CARROLL FOY IS FIGHTING TO MAKE HISTORY appeared first on Jennifer Carroll Foy for State Senator.

Charlottesville Tomorrow: Opinion: Charlottesville can choose new, bold leadership on June 8

May 24, 2021
By Jennifer Carroll Foy I grew up in Petersburg, Virginia, one of the poorest communities in our commonwealth. Petersburg is a strong community thanks to the people I grew up with: our faith leaders; my teacher, Sgt. Maj. Frost; and my grandmother, Mary Lee. People in our community fought to keep Petersburg alive when politicians of the past turned their backs on us. It’s a town that had been left behind. Too many families struggled to get by – including my own. Luckily, I was raised by my grandmother, Mary Lee Carroll, a powerhouse and leader in our neighborhood, who taught me what I hold true: that even if you don’t have much, “If you have it, you have to give it.” The post Charlottesville Tomorrow: Opinion: Charlottesville can choose new, bold leadership on June 8 appeared first on Jennifer Carroll Foy for State Senator.
