Freedom Caucus endorses four more candidates
At the August 19th meeting of the Freedom Caucus of Western Virginia, the members voted unanimously to endorse Sarah Kahle to be elected as Clerk of the Court in Frederick County. Sarah’s campaign theme is that she will be a Constitutional Officer who faithfully serves the citizens of Frederick County.
Sarah is a conservative candidate. She possesses the organizational and leadership skills that are required for the position. The Freedom Caucus urges the voters of Frederick County to elect Sarah on November 7th.
At that meeting, the members of the Freedom Caucus unanimously endorsed Gloria Carlineo to be elected to the Shenandoah County School Board. She is extraordinarily well qualified to serve the people of Shenandoah County.
Gloria seeks to stop radical indoctrination in the schools. She will be the articulate voice of parents on the School Board. In addition, she is an advocate for School Choice and she supports the successful preparation of students for the future.
Also, at the meeting, Freedom Caucus members unanimously endorsed Wilson Fauber to be elected to the Staunton City Council. Wilson was born in Staunton and been a resident for over 60 years.
Wilson is a conservative candidate. He understands the role of government in a democratic Republic. When elected, he will represent the people of Staunton with wisdom and with energy. He is running a spectacular campaign with his signs appearing everywhere!
Leslie Mathews is a candidate for the Warren County School Board. Leslie’s motivation to run for the seat is the result of the controversial policies adopted by the School Board.
Examples of those policies include transgender rights and the “Second Step Program” which indoctrinates students with values that may differ from what they learn at home.
Leslie has observed a significant decline in the educational proficiency of children. Because of that, she believes schools should prioritize teaching students foundational skills such as reading, writing, and mathematics, rather than divisive social issues.
