There will be a final vote for the GOP endorsement at a meeting of the Fairfax County Republican Committee on May 21.
At that meeting, the Mason District Committee will present its recommendation, and the FCRC members will decide whether Pafford or the other Republican contender for the Mason District school board seat, Linda Pelligrino, will be on the general election ballot.
Here are some highlights from Pafford’s blog:
- Hillary Clinton’s book It Takes a Village “has a dark side,” Pafford writes. “Every evil recognized recognized and abhorred by our forefathers is allowed in the Village. Sex, porn, drugs, even murder are sanctioned and legalized. Outdated ‘Family Values,’ essential for the protection and discipline in a family-oriented society, are replaced with Civic Virtues: a greener planet for children to inherit, a place where every child is a winner, and the equality of ‘I’m OK, You’re OK.’”
- Pafford warns that laws passed by states requiring schools to teach children about the “political, economic, and social contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals” could be promoted here.
- He opposes books in school libraries that express the viewpoint of transgender children. He equates the acceptance of non-gender-conforming children with pedophilia.
If Pafford does get on the Nov. 5 ballot, he would most likely face Democratic candidate Ricardy Anderson.
