McLean, VA The Northern Virginia Technology Council’s TechPAC and Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce’s NOVABizPAC recently made their endorsements of Delegate Barbara Comstock for re-election to the House of Delegates in the 34th District.  

In response to the endorsements, Delegate Comstock noted, “Keeping our business community strong is a top priority for Northern Virginia. I am proud to have the support of those who are creating jobs and prosperity for our area.”

This year the General Assembly passed Delegate Comstock’s Telework Tax Credit and the Research and Development Tax Credit of which Delegate Comstock was the Chief-Co Patron of. Both of the bills were considered top priorities for Northern Virginia’s tech and business communities.  

“Delegate Comstock has a record of working closely with our tech community and supporting initiatives that are important to the creation of jobs in Northern Virginia,” said Dendy Young, TechPAC Chairman and Chairman and CEO of McLean Capital, LLC. “She understands the importance of creating an environment in Northern Virginia that promotes private sector job creation and provides a competitive advantage to companies that drive technology innovation.”

“The trustees of NOVABizPAC voted to endorse Delegate Comstock in recognition of her work in Richmond on behalf of the Northern Virginia business community. She is a strong advocate who works hard to protect and promote the interests of the Fairfax Chamber and its members and we look forward to continuing that relationship in the future.”
