Today, former President of the Loudoun County NAACP Phillip Thompson and his wife former Loudoun Water Board of Director member Dr. Tanja S. Thompson announced their endorsement of State Senator Jennifer Boysko in her campaign for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. Both Thompsons highlighted Jennifer Boysko’ s commitment to the community she has represented for many years.

“Jennifer Boysko has proven herself to be a steadfast ally in the fight for equality and justice,” said Phillip Thompson. “She has always been a champion for those whose voices too often go unheard.”

Dr. Tanja Thompson emphasized that Jennifer Boysko is always present in the community even attending events that may not always be popular but are important.

“In Congress, we need a representative that knows and has participated in events in this community. Jennifer Boysko leads not just by her words, but also by her actions. This is her community, and she has represented it well in Richmond. We are proud to endorse her campaign and look forward to working together to make this community better for all its residents.”

“The Thompsons are tireless advocates for civil rights and true leaders in our community,” said Boysko. “I’m honored to have earned their support, and I look forward to continuing our work together to ensure every Virginian has an equal opportunity to thrive.”

Phillip and Dr. Thompson have and continue to work hard in their community not just through their work for the NAACP, but both have served Loudoun County on commissions and boards, including Dr. Thompson’s tenure as a member of the Board of Director for Loudoun Water. Mr. Thompson also served on the State Board of the NAACP and ACLU.


Boysko is a Virginia State Senator and the Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee. She is the only Northern Virginia Senator negotiating Virginia’s state budget where she is working to deliver $2.5 billion in new education funding, millions to save Metro, and important investments to improve mental health services and combat climate change. Senator Boysko represented as many as 200,000 residents in Loudoun County for 8 years in the General Assembly. Among her long and accomplished legislative record, this year she carried the constitutional amendment to ensure abortion access, collective bargaining, and paid family and medical leave.
