GLEN ALLEN, VA — Today, Secretary of Education Atif Qarni announced his endorsement of Veena Lothe, candidate for Virginia’s 12th State Senate District.
“I have gotten to know Veena and have had the opportunity to discuss various issues, including education,” said Qarni. “Veena is committed to closing the achievement gap by making sure that the way we support our schools is through an equity lens. I support her candidacy for the Virginia State Senate.”
“I’m honored to have Secretary Qarni’s endorsement,” said Lothe. “Under Secretary Qarni’s leadership, our Commonwealth has increased teacher pay, lowered the student to counselor ratio, and increased trauma-informed care in our school system. I look forward to working with Secretary Qarni to fully fund our public school system when I am elected to the Virginia State Senate.”
