LeMunyon Receives Endorsement of Northern Virginia's Technology Council's TechPAC
Chantilly, VA - The Northern Virginia Technology Council's TechPAC today endorsed Jim LeMunyon for election to the House of Delegates in the 67th District.
"I appreciate the TechPAC's endorsement, and the boost it gives to our campaign," said LeMunyon. "Northern Virginia's vibrant technology industry is a prime source of employment in our region, which is a key technology center in the United States. While some believe the government should target specific industries, technologies, or companies, I am an advocate for public policies that aim to target the process of innovation in which existing companies can expand and create jobs, and in which new companies can form and grow."
Jim LeMunyon is himself a technology company entrepreneur, and has contributed to the formation of several companies, including Sterling Semiconductor, which is now a unit of Dow Corning Corporation. (See www.sterlingsemiconductor.com)
LeMunyon has also served in government as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and as Chief-of-Staff to a member of Congress in the early and mid-1980s. During that time, he coordinated a Republican Task Force in the House of Representatives that created the first "tech policy" agenda and was successful in securing bipartisan support to enact several laws to promote innovation.
Virginia's 67th Legislative District includes Chantilly, and portions of Fairfax, Oakton, Centreville, Oak Hill, and South Riding.
