Senators Tim Kaine and Cory Booker Endorse Terron Sims II For Arlington School Board

U.S. Senators Tim Kaine and Cory Booker have announced their official endorsements for Arlington Virginia School Board candidate Terron Sims II.

Terron Sims II is a military veteran and former County Board candidate who played an instrumental role in Senator Tim Kaine, Governor Terry McAuliffe, Congressman Don Beyer, and Governor Ralph Northam’s campaigns, where he assisted in standing up their VMF apparatus, served as an official surrogate, edited policy, organized events, and raised funds.

Senator Tim Kaine made the following statement:”I am proud to endorse Terron Sims for Arlington School Board. After serving five years in the Army, Terron returned home to Northern Virginia and since then, he has dedicated so much of his time and energy towards helping his community —  particularly young people. As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I count on Terron’s help every year in recommending talented Virginia students to attend our military service academies. As Vice Chair of the DNC’s Veteran and Military Families Council, he has been a consistent advocate for veterans in Virginia, and as an activist, he continues to push for greater equity in education for all children. I have no doubt that Arlington students and parents will benefit from Terron’s experience. I encourage all Arlingtonians to support him in the upcoming election — you can request a mail-in ballot at ballot.”

Senator Cory Booker recorded a video proclaiming his support of the army veteran and long-standing activist of Arlington County.  Click HERE to watch the full video!

“I am honored to have earned the support of Senators Kaine and Booker, leaders who understand the importance of a quality education system,” says Sims. “Their endorsements will help increase the campaign’s visibility and the platform on which I stand – the future betterment of our youth starts in school.”

In wake of public-health concerns, the Arlington Democratic Committee is encouraging all registered voters to use vote-by-mail ballots.  Voters have until May 7, 2020 to request their ballots and are faced with a May 30th deadline to turn them in.
