Following yesterday’s primary elections, Loudoun County School Board Member and Democratic Nominee for the House of Delegates (District 27) Atoosa Reaser issued the following statement:
“Congratulations to all of the winning candidates in yesterday’s primaries. I look forward to working with you to take back the General Assembly this November, and afterwards in Richmond to protect reproductive rights, invest in public education, develop and support our workforce, and protect our communities from gun violence.”
Atoosa has been a Loudoun County resident for over 20 years. She is a graduate of Virginia K-12 public schools, James Madison University, and George Mason University School of Law. Prior to her election to the Loudoun County School Board in 2019, Atoosa served as a litigation attorney and deputy prosecutor for the Town of Herndon. She has been declared a guardian ad litem by the Virginia Supreme Court, and was unanimously appointed by a bipartisan Board of Supervisors to a committee administering services for at-risk young.
Since launching her campaign last July, Atoosa has raised over $125,000 and been endorsed by Congresswomen Jennifer Wexton and Jennifer McClellan; Senators Barbara Favola, John Bell, Jennifer Boysko, and Ghazala Hashmi; Delegates Kathleen Murphy, Mark Sickles, David Reid, Dan Helmer, and Irene Shin; Loudoun County Chair Phyllis Randall; Supervisors Juli Briskman and Sylvia Glass; IBEW Local 26, SEIU Local 512 & 32BJ; Emgage Action; National Iranian American Council Action; VoteProChoice; and other local leaders, unions, and advocacy groups. When elected, she will be the only woman representing Loudoun County in the House of Delegates.
Atoosa will face Republican nominee and former Trump administration official Chris Harnisch in the general election on November 7th. Harnisch’s extreme views and allegiance to Donald Trump are a clear threat to reproductive freedom and the progress we’ve made in Virginia, and Atoosa is prepared to stand up to him and fight for our values.
As we move forward in this critical election season, Atoosa remains committed to continuing the hard work of engaging with voters, listening to their concerns, and supporting candidates across the Commonwealth to build a grassroots movement and flip the House of Delegates this November.
