Republican Davis formally announces bid for lieutenant governor
Roanoke.com - over 4 years
Former state legislator Jeannemarie Davis formally announced her candidacy for the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor today, saying she “offers the ideal mix of fighting for the two things most important to Virginia families –  their values and their pocketbooks.” Davis, who lives in Vienna, most recently worked as Gov. Bob McDonnell’s state liaison to the federal government. She previously served for six years in the House of Delegates and four more in the state Senate. Davis officially became a candidate when she filed with the state board of elections in September, but waited until today to make a formal announcement. She joins a crowded field of candidates for the 2013 Republican nomination, which will be decided at a state convention. State Del. Scott Lingamfelter of Prince William County, state Sen. Steve Martin of Chesterfield County, Prince William County Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart and Stafford County Supervisor Susan Stimpson are seeking the n ...

Lingamfelter files to run for lieutenant governor
Roanoke.com - over 4 years
The Virginia Public Access Project sends word this afternoon that Del. Scott Lingamfelter, R-Prince William County, has filed paperwork with the state to raise money as a candidate for lieutenant governor. Lingamfelter, who has served in the House since 2002, is the second official entry in what could be a crowded field of GOP candidates for the office next year. Corey Stewart, the chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, already is in the 2013 race. The state Republican Party’s governing body voted Friday to scrap plans for a primary in 2013 and to instead nominate the party’s statewide candidates in a convention. That decision could draw more candidates into the competition for lieutenant governor and attorney general. Other Republicans being mentioned as lieutenant governor prospects include former state legislator Jeannemarie Davis of Fairfax County, who runs Virginia’s Washington D.C. liaison office, and Pete Snyder, who is directing the GOP’s coordinated ca ...

Historical Marker Honors Florence Jodzies
Oakton Patch - almost 5 years
When Trish Strat set out to prove the historical significance of the Vale Schoolhouse, she accidentally proved the historical significance of the woman who kept the building open long after its days as a schoolhouse ended: Florence Jodzies. After learning about Jodzies through the application for a highway marker for the schoolhouse, the Virginia Department of Historic Resources nudged her to also submit one in honor of Jodzies. On Tuesday, Vale Club and Oakton Women's Club hosted a celebration of libraries, women's clubs and Jodzies at the Vale Schoolhouse as part of an unveiling ceremony for a historical marker in Jodzies' honor. The marker is located near the intersection of Fox Mill Road and Helmont Drive, near Jodzies' home at Harmony Farm. Vale Schoolhouse, built around 1884, was an active school until 1931. In 1934, Oakton newcomer Florence Jodzies lobbied the county to reopen the building as the home base for the newly formed Vale Home Demonstration Club, which offered ...

  • 2007
    Age 50
    During the week of October 22, 2007, the Davis campaign sent out 60,000 campaign flyers accusing Petersen of not disclosing that his former law firm was working on issues that Petersen voted on while in the House of Delegates.
    More Details Hide Details The flyer did not mention that Petersen had not been involved in the legal issues for the client. The flyer included a copy of a section of Petersen's Statement of Economic Interest, which he filed while serving in the House. It includes Petersen's home address, telephone number, and the names of his wife and four children. This information was not redacted by the Davis campaign. Petersen held a press conference on October 26 in front of Davis' headquarters in Fairfax. He said that "words cannot describe the anger I feel" about the flyer, and called it "shocking" that Davis would use his personal information in such a manner. Petersen said that advertising his personal information was not in and of itself a problem, but using his personal phone number and children's identification was not appropriate or safe in an attack ad. Such tactics, Petersen said, endangered his family. Mrs. Petersen complained of receiving two telephone calls related to the attack ad, and police presence appeared at the home, before the family vacated the house. In response, Davis said in her own press conference that because the information was public and included to supporters, it was appropriate for an attack ad.
    The financial benefits between Rep. Davis and his wife, from the ICG job as well as other campaign donations to Mrs. Davis, were highlighted in a June 2007 ethics report "Family Affair" by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
    More Details Hide Details The report identified ethical questions on financial ties that benefit family members of 64 of the 435 voting members of Congress. As of 12/24/2008, Davis continues to work for ICG. She reported to the Washington Post that she was paid $78,000 in 2005 for working "10 to 20 hours a week," primarily at home on her cellphone, she said. She made $18,000 a year as a Virginia legislator. Her ICG bio, which continues to describe her as a "Current Virginia State Senator for largest IT district", bio, also is the only one on the ICG website to name a spouse.
    In her 2007 election campaign, she listed the following endorsements:
    More Details Hide Details VPAP:donors to Jeanemarie Devolities Davis VPAP:VA Donors to Tom Davis Virginia Victory Fund VPAP:Tom Davis Leadership Committees She was one of the first hires (as a part-time consultant) for ICG, a firm that assists businesses in obtaining and defending performance under government contracts. At the time of her hire, Congressman Davis was her mentor and campaign manager. ICG Founder and President Don Upson is a longtime friend of Davis. After Devolites was hired by ICG, Davis, then divorced, married Devolites.
    She served one term in the State Senate, losing her run for reelection in 2007.
    More Details Hide Details Her district was the most Democratic district held by a Republican in Virginia. Her Democratic successor is Democrat and former Delegate Chap Petersen, whose previous House district is enclaved in the 37th Senatorial District. Her top donor continues to be her husband's Political Action Committee (PAC), the Federal Victory Fund, donating almost $25,000. Tom Davis's other PAC, the Va Victory Fund, had also donated over $92,000 in her House races. Mrs. Davis also received another $55,616 from the National Republican Congressional Committee when her husband was the Committee Chair. This RNCC donation is the most donated to any VA candidate not running statewide. On evaluations from Project Vote Smart, on a scale of 100 from 2004 to 2006, examples of the latest rankings for Davis include scores of 67-100 percent from the Virginia Education Association, 50-71 percent from the Virginia League of Conservation Voters, and 78-84 percent from the Chamber of Commerce. She has scores of near zero from the Virginia National Organization for Women and all reporting abortion rights groups, 80% from the Chamber of Commerce, and a 94% from the conservative Family Foundation of Virginia.
    A large percentage of her financial support is contributed from her husband, Tom Davis, and the Republican organizations he directs. Before Virginia's 2007 election cycle, his PACS had donated more than $172,000 to her campaign.
    More Details Hide Details In addition, she has received contributions from National Republican organizations directed by Mr. Davis including, who in turn donated money and office space to Mrs. Davis; $55,616 from the National Republican Congressional Committee when her husband was Chair, $5,000 from the Republican Main Street Partnership, and $5,000 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC. According to the Washington Post: "In the past five years, technology and telecommunications companies have been the largest contributors to Davis's and his wife's separate campaigns and political action committees. Those companies and their employees have donated more than $1.1 million of the $6.4 million given to the couple's campaigns, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics and the Virginia Public Access Project." Former Senator Davis works as a technology consultant for ICG government, a position that has raised potential conflicts of interest, described in more detail below. Previously, she worked as a statistical consultant to the law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld.
