Filipino Americans love to talk of achieving political empowerment in the United States. Yet, not all American citizens of Filipino descent bother to register as voters and cast their ballots during elections. And fewer still of our kababayans in the United States open their wallets to support the political bids of Filipino-American candidates.

There is an opportunity for our community to make history in Virginia this year. A Filipino-American candidate, Vellie Dietrich Hall, is making an unprecedented bid to be elected as a member of a County Board of Supervisors in Virginia.

It is time to back up our rhetorical support with our wallets. We at the support unconditionally the political bid of Ms. Vellie Dietrich Hall. We urge all our readers and the Filipino-American community in general to support Ms. Vellie’s bid. It is time to make political history in a county that is adjacent to the nation’s corridor of power and political influence.

Here is the latest campaign appeal from Ms. Vellie Dietrich Hall:

Dear Kababayan, Friends, and Supporters:

In seven days, we’ll be filing our next campaign finance report. We have a goal to raise $7,000 to get our name out via banners and yard signs and I am asking your kind help.

The campaign trail is moving along quicker with each day and we are getting an exciting response on the ground. But the next 74 days will be the most challenging and they will go by faster than we know it!

Will you make a $25 dollar contribution today and then forward this to five friends or families and ask them if they would do the same? Please visit our donation page now to make a contribution of $25, $75, $150, $500 or even more! Just click 

Again, there is absolutely no way we could have the success we do without your help. You are instrumental in helping us to get to the finish line. I am grateful to have so many loyal friends and generous supporters. I appreciate the support more than you know and will always pay it forward and return the help.

On to victory,


Vellie S. Dietrich Hall 

Office Phone:  571/830-6440

Campaign Office:  7220-D Columbia Pike, Annandale, VA 22003
