Workforce: Supporting Public Employees
As a former government employee and former director of a non-profit human service agency, I understand the importance of creating a healthy workplace. Arlington continues to attract outstanding professionals and it is our job to ensure that they are respected, fairly compensated and held accountable for providing top quality services.
I have supported a living wage program for county employees and contractors, and significantly improved the county retirement system. I believe the employee workforce should reflect the diversity of our community, and will continue to fight for reinstatement of the County's domestic partner benefit program.
