The nonprofit Walking with Anthony recognized State Sen. Jennifer McClellan (D-9th) for her work supporting spinal cord injury patients at its 6th annual charity golf tournament and dinner in Fairfax on Sept. 24.

At the beginning of the Virginia General Assembly’s 2018 session on Jan. 10, McClellan filed a bill allowing the Virginia Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services to obtain information on spinal cord injuries so that it can develop services, programs, and other resources for victims.

His democratic opponent, incumbent Sen. Tim Kaine, was not in attendance Sunday and sent State Senator Jennifer McClellan in his stead.

“When my five-year-old son was sitting in the back of the car listening to [President Trump] on the radio, he was asking ‘why he’s so mean, why is so angry? Why is he calling that person names?’”

McClellan said in response to the same question about a lack of civility in politics. “And trying to explain to your son, after the election, why certain children are crying because other children said they were going to get deported because of their last name, if you think our children aren’t listening, they are.”
