Thank You Fairfax GOP!


I am honored and humbled to have been elected to be Chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee today. I thank everyone for their support, and pledge my every effort to serving you as we work to elect our candidates in 2012 and build our party for the future.

I entered this race with only one goal, to do whatever I can do to help keep our country on the right path, the path envisioned by our founders, the path of liberty, and freedom and prosperity for all. Together we can make a difference, and I thank you all for this opportunity.

A special thanks to Matt Ames, who ran a great race, and who is a true gentleman. Together we pledged to run a campaign that served to unite the party, and he was true to his word. I am so pleased that he has agreed to serve as the FCRC 1st Vice Chairman.

I also want to thank all my supporters, my campaign staff, my Campaign Manager Nancy McWhorter, and of course my family for sticking by me over these last months, and for working so hard to reach our shared goal. Congratulations also to the great FCRC Staff who put on such a motivating and professional convention today. Great job!

Finally a very special thank you to Anthony Bedell. Anthony’s dedication and skill as FCRC Chairman have given us a party that is motivated, organized, and ready to win in 2012 and beyond. Thank you Anthony for all you have done for Fairfax County, and for your mentorship and friendship over these last four years.

Please join us at the FCRC “Chairman’s Election Happy Hour” on March 28th. Details are at I look forward to seeing you there and to working with you in the months and years to come.

Through Growth Comes Victory!

Vote Jay McConville for FCRC Chairman on March 24th


Thank you for filing as a Delegate to the Fairfax County Republican Committee Convention. Your participation and your energy are essential to our efforts to elect good Republican candidates in 2012, defeat President Obama, and prepare for future success in Fairfax County and Virginia.

I am seeking the position of Chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee because I believe deeply that our nation is at a critical decision point. We must choose either the path envisioned by our founders, a nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the principles we all share, or a path that will “fundementally change” our nation and threaten both our liberty and our economic vitality. I want to serve in any way I can to fight for our future, and help return us to the right path.

I know that I have the right experience for the Chairman position, and that I can make a positive difference. I have been a candidate myself, having run for the Virginia House of Delegates in 2009. I have served two years as the Vice Chairman of the Party for Budget and Finance, and I have been a leader in the military, in business, and at the head of several other large volunteer organizations. I am an experienced fundraiser, having raised several million dollars for multiple organizations, and I am a marketing professional who will be an aggressive and vocal advocate for our shared principles. These are the skills you need in your Chairman!

My campaign theme is “Through Growth Comes Victory!” I chose this theme because I know that together we can achieve Victory – we can grow our party’s volunteer force, improve our operations, provide better value to our candidates, increase our financial resources, and be an aggressive advocate for Republican principles throughout Fairfax County. I pledge to you that I will work very hard to make this vision a reality.

I would be honored to have your vote. You can count on me to work very hard for our party, our county, our Commonwealth and our nation.

Jay McConville begins campaign to be next Fairfax County Republican Committee Chairman on a high note at Army Navy Country Club

Fairfax, VA, January 6, 2012 – Local business and community leader Jay McConville kicked off his campaign to be the next Fairfax County Republican Committee (FCRC) Chairman to a packed house Friday night at the Army Navy Country Club in Fairfax. Approximately seventy-five attendees, including event host Delegate Barbara Comstock, listened as Mr. McConville laid out his vision for Republican success in Fairfax County.

“Live boldly, live a whole life,” were the opening words to McConville’s kickoff remarks, words and lessons he learned from his close friend Tony Snow, former White House Press Secretary, writer, and television personality, who passed away in 2008. “I am ready to take this challenge on because I share with you the conviction that we must do whatever we can to literally save our nation, it is that important,” said McConville, as he described his plan to motivate and organize the county’s Republicans and achieve victories in 2012 and beyond.

The FCRC will select a new Chairman to replace Anthony Bedell, who is stepping down after two terms, at a convention to be held on March 24th at West Springfield High School. Convention delegates must pre-register and be in attendance at the convention to support their candidate. Convention information is available at and the FCRC’s website (

Jay McConville is a combat veteran, businessman, and community leader who ran for the Virginia House of Delegates in the 44thDistrict (Mount Vernon) in 2009. Since then he has served as the FCRC’s Vice Chairman for Budget and Finance. He is a former manufacturing CEO who serves on the Mt. Vernon-Lee Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, is the former President of the Ft. Hunt Youth Athletic Association, is current President of his industry association’s DC Chapter, and is an active member of the Mt. Vernon community. He is also an Ironman Triathlete, having completed the Coeur d’ Alene Ironman in 2008, and a musician, playing in the local band Close2Home, and formerly with Tony Snow’s band Beats Workin’.
