Public Safety Ahead of Politics
"As a father, husband and longtime prosecutor, I have dedicated my career to keeping dangerous criminals off the streets in order to keep our community safe. I am running for Commonwealth's Attorney because we need an experienced prosecutor who will always put public safety ahead of politics to keep Fairfax County a great place to live, work, and raise a family." - Jonathan Fahey
Fairfax County is one of the safest counties in the country thanks in large part to our dedicated law enforcement officers and fair administration of justice. As the Commonwealth’s Attorney, keeping our community safe will be my number one priority.
I have served as a prosecutor in this community for almost nineteen years. First as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in Fairfax County. Then as a Special Assistant and Assistant United States Attorney at the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.
Jail or prison time is not the answer for every offender, especially for first-time, low-level and non-violent offenders. Many first-time offenders are suffering from addiction or mental health issues where serving time does not address their underlying issues.
