I do not mean just the ethical mess that gives us daily headlines of major political figures coming under investigation or being indicted. But also the political mess that turns every issue affecting the future of education, jobs, our economy, health care, our national and homeland security into a partisan fight, that prevents effective problem solving for Virginians. The future. Together we will make it better.
Despite spending long hours working to help his family, Harris graduated from high school in three years. Stitching together student loans, scholarships, and a job at the local steel mill, Harris became the first member of his immediate family to earn a college degree, graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh before earning a graduate degree from Yale University.
After graduate school, Harris began his 30-year career in public service. As a top Congressional aide, he tackled tough issues such as energy independence, transportation, and immigration.
Throughout his successful business career, Harris maintained his love of public service. He was appointed by Governor Mark Warner to the Virginia Research and Technology Advisory Commission, and by Governor Doug Wilder to the Virginia State Lottery Board. Harris is also a former Chair of the Northern Virginia American Heart Association, and the Northern Virginia Board of the Virginia Oper
