Former Virginia First Ladies Anne Holton and Dorothy McAuliffe to Discuss Investing in Virginia’s Children

On Saturday, October 20, former Virginia First Ladies Anne Holton and Dorothy McAuliffe will host a conversation in Sterling to discuss the importance of investing in Virginia’s children. Holton, also a former Virginia Secretary of Education, will highlight her husband Senator Tim Kaine’s long record of fighting for children and families, and share his message of building a Virginia with a good education, health care, and opportunity for all.

Before being appointed as Secretary of Education, Anne worked as a legal aid lawyer serving low-income families and as a juvenile and domestic relations district court judge. She has always believed that education plays a critical role in helping young people grow into successful adults. Dorothy is a long-time advocate for women and children, striving to provide equal opportunity both socially and economically. As First Lady of Virginia, she spearheaded efforts to decrease child hunger by investing in school nutrition programs that support the Virginia children who need it most.

Senator Kaine has long been an advocate for Virginia’s children. He lead the effort to build Richmond’s first new schools in a generation as mayor, won Virginia recognition as the best state to raise a child as Governor, and has continued to champion the interests of children and families in the Senate.

Saturday’s discussion is the first of a series of events with former Virginia First Ladies Anne Holton, Dorothy McAuliffe, Lisa Collis, and Pamela Northam in the Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads, and Richmond areas.

Media interested in covering this event should RSVP to Brandon Gassaway at brandon@timkaine.com.
