Letter: Welcoming the FBI

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

As a high school senior there are many things that I am concerned about. Primarily, the anxiety associated with transitioning to college life. Second, are my future employment opportunities after college. When I heard that Pat Herrity was fighting to bring the FBI Headquarters to Fairfax County, I was elated. Having lived in Fairfax County for the majority of my life, this is great news for me. Knowing that there will be 12,000 new jobs is so reassuring, especially as someone who wants to remain in the region.

I’m sure that many other students like me will appreciate the job growth in the Fairfax County area. Pat Herrity is definitely making progress in our area that will affect my generation in amazing ways. With the new FBI building I feel like I won’t have to move away from home to build a career for myself. I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.
