April 5th 2021: Susan Shick: Endorsement 🚨 As Chair, of the Frederick County, VA 2A Supporters and Frederick County, VA 2A Chapter , I am officially giving my personal endorsement to Jorge V Gonzalez Winchester Ward 1 Councilman!!! We know all too well that we need Jorge’s many talents and strong conservative values desperately on the current city council. Jorge is the Republican Candidate and will be facing a Dem Challenger (possibly the current incumbent) in November. I suggest reaching out to your Ward 1 family and friends and let them know they have a right to make their voices heard and take back this seat!
We win these unconstitutional battles at the ballot box and Jorge is ready and willing to take a stand! I am proud to know you and look forward to seeing the great things you accomplish on the council! 🇺🇸

Preserving and even adding parks in the City of Winchester is the best decision for the residents. Save our parks! Don’t pave over our greenspace!
I have supported Jorge since he first informed me he wanted to run for City Council. He is passionate about public service and wants to hit the ground running if elected. His goals are simple and straight forward.
Over the last few years, Winchester Public Schools has added several programs that seem to have provided additional opportunities to students, such as the Dual Language Immersion Program and the Emil and Grace Shihadeh Innovation Center. Our schools, however, still have much room for improvement. here.
It seems Public Works and City Council have found a new way of convincing us that while they are doubling our trash fee and likely reducing personnel over time, that we should pay double while limiting our trash to one 96 gallon trash can. Nice trick. They then decided to allow us to pick which trash can we want but all of them are more than the $5 we are paying now or the $0 we paid when I first moved to Winchester as trash collection was part of your general fund services. We also see that they will be using the Covid Relief funds to buy the automated truck so that they can give us these great cans. Public Works is also trying to convince city council of further restricting our ability to put yard waste out and maybe add some more fees. This all seems like a way to reduce services all the while charging tax payers more. Best of all the plan is to keep raising these fees every year
City Council can stop passing the buck to bureaucrats and make the hard decisions instead of spending other peoples money.
"One of my main points for this campaign is transparency, which I think is something the city has been lacking," Gonzalez said during a brief press conference at his home on Nester Drive. "I think we need to give citizens, reporters, all the folks an opportunity to see what's going on in the city."
