Members of the Fairfax County Government Employees Union of the SEIU Wednesday issued a statement applauding the passage of the Fairfax County FY 2019 budget, praising county supervisors who passed the budget with an 8-2 vote. The budget’s investments in public services for local families and small businesses, and in the workforce that provides those services, was applauded.
“This budget invests in our community and in our workforce. This is a good budget for both millennials and baby boomers, for both local families and small businesses,” said FCGEU President Tammie Wondong, who has worked for the county for nearly 30 years. “This budget is a big step forward in ensuring that all working people can thrive in our community.”
