Centreville, VA – Fairfax City Councilman Sang Yi, the top vote getter in Fairfax City’s 2018 and 2020 elections, endorsed Tim Hugo’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor today citing Hugo’s longtime advocacy of the local issues that matter to families most.

“Tim Hugo’s dedication to working families, economic growth, and local issues are reflected in his strong record in the House of Delegates,” said Yi. “As a Fairfax City Councilman, I could always count on Tim to help champion small businesses and quality of life issues in Richmond.

Tim’s expertise and focus on the issues that directly impact our families and communities are exactly what we need to lead the Commonwealth’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. I am proud to call Tim a friend and equally proud to endorse his campaign because I know he will continue his record of hard work as Lieutenant Governor.”

“Sang is a strong leader who is a tireless advocate for his constituents, and I am honored to have him on our team,” said Hugo. “In the months ahead, I look forward to working with him and all Republican leaders who have endorsed our campaign to take back the Lieutenant Governor’s office by building a statewide coalition that can defeat the Democrats in November.”
