Charlottesville – Josh Throneburg, Democratic candidate for Virginia’s Fifth District U.S. Representative, announced today that his campaign was endorsed by Hanover County educator and 2021 Democratic nominee for House of Delegates from HD-55, Dr. Rachel Levy.
Levy, a public school teacher and community leader in Hanover County, cited Josh’s commitment to public education and his breadth of experience as reasons for her endorsement.
“Josh is exactly the representative that Virginia’s 5th District needs: a compassionate, caring father, minister, and small business owner who grew up the son of a public school teacher in a small town,” Dr. Levy said in a statement. “He shares so many experiences with the diverse constituency of the 5th. He will protect public education, our environment, access to healthcare, rural communities, and our future.”
“Rachel is an inspiration and an incredible asset to her community,” said Josh. “She is a compassionate educator who has spent her whole life fighting for civil rights, and I am honored to have her endorsement.”
Josh resides in the City of Charlottesville with his wife, Minhee, and their daughters, Agnes and Lucy. He is an ordained minister and local small business owner. Headshots for Josh and Dr. Levy are available. Interviews can be coordinated by contacting Kelsey Cowger, Communications Director.
