Annandale, VA -- Community activist and Annandale resident Herschel V. "Buzz" Hawley, Jr. announced that he would seek election to the Mason District seat on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in 2003.
Hawley, an attorney and graduate of William and Mary and George Mason University School of Law, is a member of several civic organizations in Fairfax County's Mason District.

"I want to provide responsive leadership for Mason District," said Hawley. "I want to use my experience and knowledge of this community to advance real solutions to the challenges that face Mason residents. In the end, it's all about helping them to lead more satisfying and productive lives."
Virginia Congressman Tom Davis, who once held the Mason District seat on the Fairfax County Board, announced his support for Hawley's candidacy. "I am proud to support Buzz Hawley for Mason District Supervisor. Buzz's dedication to his Mason neighbors and active involvement over the past decade demonstrate his commitment to this community. Buzz's values, abilities and life-long ties to this district could give Mason a real leadership voice at the Board of Supervisors table."
Hawley pledges to seek honest, workable solutions to transportation, budget and taxation issues that are currently facing Fairfax County and Mason District. "I look forward to a robust debate about the important issues facing Mason residents today and in the future," said Hawley of the upcoming campaign.
Hawley, 33, now serves as Director of Government Relations and Counsel to Van Scoyoc Associates, a leading Washington government relations firm. He currently resides in the Sleepy Hollow Woods neighborhood in Annandale with his wife, Noelle, and 21-month old son, Grant.
