FOR OCCOQUAN SUPERVISOR
LAKE RIDGE, VA – Former Occoquan Mayor Earnie Porta received another organizational endorsement today in his bid to replace outgoing Supervisor Mike May in the Occoquan seat on the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. The Virginia Police Benevolent Association (PBA) informed Porta of their endorsement in a letter dated September 29, 2015. “I am honored to receive the PBA endorsement,” said Porta, “and hope to work constructively with them in the years ahead.”
The PBA endorsement brings to six the number of formal organizations who have endorsed Porta in his campaign for the Board of Supervisors. Other organizations that have endorsed and are supporting him include the Prince William Chamber of Commerce, the Prince William Education Association, the Association of Realtors of Prince William County, the Prince William Federation of Teachers, and the Prince William County Police Association.
Porta noted that “it’s a particularly gratifying to have endorsements that span the political spectrum, and include teachers, public safety personnel, and our business community. It reinforces for me that people respect positive accomplishments, ideas, and actions, rather than ideology, when it comes to what is best for Prince William County.”
Earnie Porta served four terms as Mayor of the Town of Occoquan. He is a business owner with a professional background in law and finance, where he managed hundreds of millions of dollars. Over the past decade he has been an active member of more than a dozen nonprofit and civic associations in Prince William County, most often as a board member and officer.
