Governor McAuliffe Endorses Sheriff Kincaid for Re-Election
FAIRFAX - on January 31, 2019, Former Governor Terry McAuliffe released the following statement:
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.
Stacey has also made inmate re-entry programs a top priority. She has greatly expanded education, life skills and spiritual opportunities in the Adult Detention Center so that incarcerated women and men have a better chance of becoming productive members of the community when they are released from jail.
Policy makers in law enforcement, corrections and behavioral health across the country have recognized Sheriff Stacey Kincaid as an effective leader and call upon her to share her vision and journey to success.
I hope you will join me in supporting Sheriff Stacey Kincaid for re-election in November. She will continue to represent us with the utmost integrity and respect.
