Yesterday, Majority Leader-elect Charniele Herring announced leadership position appointments within the House Democratic Caucus. Delegate Hala Ayala (HD-51) has been appointed as Chief Deputy Whip.
Delegate Ayala raised a whopping $243,109 in July and August, the most of any Democrat running for re-election. Of the contributions received in the last two months, 75 percent were less than $100.
The Virginia Professional Fire Fighters has honored Delegate Ayala with this endorsement because of her commitment to service and record of support for fire fighters and their families. Delegate Ayala is committed to continuing to fight for and support those who protect and serve the citizens of the Commonwealth. Delegate Ayala is willing and ready to work with her legislative colleagues to ensure that our fire fighters and their families receive the benefits and protections they have valiantly earned.

"For the past two years, Delegate Hala Ayala has put conservation first at the General Assembly, making her the clear choice to protect Prince William County’s environment going forward," said Michael Town, executive director of the Virginia League of Conservation Voters. "We are proud to endorse Delegate Ayala in her re-election bid and look forward to working with her in 2020 and beyond to drive progress on climate action and clean energy, clean water, and protected open spaces in the 51st District and across Virginia."
Senator Kaine stated, "I'm pleased to support Hala Ayala's re-election to the Virginia House of Delegates in the 51st District. During her first term, Hala helped expand Medicaid, raised teacher pay, and pushed for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. As the daughter of an immigrant, a single mom of two, graduate of Virginia public schools, and a cybersecurity expert, Hala brings a wealth of experience and an important perspective to the General Assembly. I know she'll continue to work for our shared values in her second term."
