Governor Terry McAuliffe
“From Sheriff Stacey Kincaid’s first election in 2013, she has proven to be a strong and innovative leader who cares deeply about all the people she serves. That’s why I am extremely proud to endorse her for re-election this November.
Through Diversion First and her new jail-based STAR program – Striving to Achieve Recovery – Stacey has been instrumental in changing the way the criminal justice and behavioral health systems interact to improve outcomes for people with mental illness and substance use disorders."
“Sheriff Kincaid has become a nationally recognized leader in corrections, especially when it comes to bridging the divide between the criminal justice and behavioral health systems. She courageously demands reforms and finds creative solutions so that Fairfax County can better meet the needs of people with mental illness or substance use disorders.”
