Aracely Panameño will be on the June 11 Primary Ballot

She officially entered the race for Neabsco Supervisor

Woodbridge, VA --- Aracely Panameño, a Salvadoran-American, announced meeting all her candidacy requirements to officially enter the primary race for Neabsco Supervisor in Prince William County. Her announcement came at a meeting of the county Democratic Committee last night at the Kelly Leadership Building in Manassas. The Democratic primary will be held on June 11, 2019.

With more than 30 years experience in advocacy on consumer, health, education, and civil rights, Panameño is the superior candidate in her race. She is also the only female candidate vying for the position in the Neabsco district. She joins nine other Prince William County women who have decided to take matters into their own hands.

“I am proud to be among such a diverse group of courageous women who want to see Prince William County be inclusive and prosperous,” Panameño said.

Getting on the ballot is no easy feat. Candidates must knock on doors to ask at least 125 voters in their respective districts to sign a petition of eligible voters, submit personal paperwork, register themselves with the State Board of Elections, establish an organization, register with the Internal Revenue Service, open up bank accounts, solicit donations, pay a steep candidate filing fee, and be willing to comply with a complex set of laws and regulations.

“We knocked on doors and listened to voters across the Neabsco District; they shared their concerns and we are confident that when elected we will be able to faithfully represent their priorities in our local government,” said Panameño.

Aracely Panameño has been a Prince William County resident for more than 33 year. Professionally, she is a consumer, health, and civil rights advocate. She works for the Center for Responsible Lending fighting for affordable housing, in both the rental and home ownership market, for a just and fair mortgage system, and against predatory lending practices in financial markets that strip income and equity away from all Americans.
