Save the Date - March 28th Event w Congresswoman Elise Stefanik
I was a kid from Prince William County. I went to Kilby Elementary School, Fred Lynn Middle School, and Woodbridge Senior High School. I grew up on Greenacre Drive in old Woodbridge, only back then we just called it Woodbridge. My parents opened a retail appliance store, and, as a teenager, I would help make deliveries after school and on the weekends. At the time, the only way to get to Manassas was along the two lanes of Davis Ford Road, and, if you were going to Nokesville, you'd better pack a lunch because it felt like going to the other side of the world. I am proud to say that I was a kid from Prince William County, but a lot has changed since then.
Prince William County is now the second largest county in Virginia. We have a thriving economy, 100% accredited schools, and a AAA bond rating for our sound financial management. As someone who loves this community, I am proud of all that we've accomplished, but I know that there is still work left to be done. That is why I am running to be to the Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. Someday I hope my kids will be as proud to have grown up here as I am.
Yesli Vega is a military wife, mother, former police officer and a Prince William County Sheriff’s Deputy who has dedicated her life to public service.
Born in Texas, Yesli moved with her family to Northern Virginia at the age of five. It was here that Yesli’s mother and father, a Pastor, taught her the invaluable lessons of hard work, faith in God, and love for the greatest country on His green earth.
Following a family tragedy, Yesli witnessed firsthand the impact that local law enforcement and our first responders have in the service and protection of our local communities. Inspired by their heartfelt courage, and thankful for keeping her family intact, Yesli made a commitment to give back and joined the Alexandria, Virginia Police Department.
As a Patrol Officer, Yesli found herself in various split second, life and death situations that our law enforcement faces every day. In addition to working the “street beat”, Yesli also became a Field Training Officer, was a certified Hostage Negotiator, and member of the Crisis Intervention Team.
She has also overseen department spending, helping hard-working taxpayers by making recommendations to reduce unnecessary spending.
In 2012, Yesli temporarily left the world of law enforcement to accompany her husband, Rene (a U.S. Army Veteran), and their two children, during his deployment to South Korea. It was in South Korea, living under constant threats from the communist North, that Yesli’s commitment to conservative, free-market principles, and private property rights were strengthened.
In addition to her career in law enforcement, Yesli has served the Prince William community as a mentor to at-risk youth through the Cal Ripken Foundation’s “Badges for Baseball” program. She has also coached her daughter’s youth soccer teams, volunteered with Special Olympics, “Santa Cops”, and serves as the general Secretary of her church. She is a graduate of American Military University and the Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Academy.
Yesli will apply common-sense conservative solutions to the issues most important to families in the Coles District and Prince William County at-large. Whether it be creating a pro-business climate, reducing property taxes, government spending regulations, smart growth, preserving our rural communities, transportation, education, immigration, and of course adequate funding and respect for the men and women in blue.
With Yesli’s life experiences, commitment to serving her community, and common sense, conservative approach to governing, she humbly asks for your vote to be the next Supervisor of the Coles District.
