“I’ve known Joash for several years. He is dedicated and works tirelessly to promote positive change and growth in Virginia Beach. I’m proud to endorse him in his campaign for City Council.”


“Joash is the kind of leadership that Virginia Beach needs.  He has intelligence and integrity and a breadth of experience in a variety of areas from business development to wetlands protection.  He is focused totally on being a public servant to the citizens of our city, rather than the culture wars that roil our politics at other levels.  I am proud to be part of the broad, bi-partisan group that supports him.”
