Politics on Menu at Connolly's St. Patrick's Day Fete

By Karen Goff

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va. 11th) celebrated the wearing o’ the green with more than 1,000 elected officials and local supporters at his 21st annual St. Patrick’s Day Fete on Tuesday.

A highlight of the event at the Kena Temple Ballroom in Fairfax was Democratic Presidential Candidate Straw Poll.

I was honored to receive the Washington Post endorsement today. Here's what they said:

In District 11, Rep.  Gerald E. Connolly is the lone incumbent seeking reelection in Northern Virginia. A former chairman of Fairfax County’s Board of Supervisors, Mr. Connolly, a Democrat, is a dominant figure in Northern Virginia politics; few people are as well-versed and effective in addressing the problems of federal workers.

Gerry Connolly doesn't have 20/20 vision. His round wire-framed spectacles and cropped
salt-and-pepper mustache have long accessorized his look, whether sporting a black pinstripe suit or a billowy navy University of Virginia windbreaker (his daughter Caitlin Rose is an alumna).

But when the Star-Texaco storage facility at the Pickett Road tank farm started leaking oil that seeped into groundwater near his Mantua home, he could see with great clarity something needed to be done.

Corned beef. Cabbage. Music, dancing, and politics. That's right, it's almost time for our 21st Annual St. Patrick's Day Fete! In 1995, my wife, Smitty, and I hosted our first annual St, Patrick's Day Fete, right in our home. Since then, the gathering of neighbors, friends, and supporters has grown from fewer than 100 to over 1,200 attendees - and this year will be bigger and better than ever.

Last night, I was reelected to my fourth term representing Virginia's 11th district in the U.S. House of Representatives. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank the hundreds of thousands of people who supported my campaign, whether by donating money, volunteering, or casting their ballot for me.

The Washington Jewish Week profiled Congressman Connolly's remarks at the B'nai B'rith International Brunch last week. Congressman Connolly spent over an hour answering questions and discussing issues ranging from sequestration to Israel and Iran and the Affordable Care Act. He stressed the importance of federal investment as a source of economic growth and stability in Northern Virginia and emphasized the depth of his international relations experience.

Since my first run for Providence District Supervisor in 1995, I have hosted an annual St. Patrick's Day Fete. The event has grown from a small gathering of friends at my home to one of the highlights of the Democratic political season.
