Barbara Kanninen Arlington County School Board Member
"Robert Walter is committed and focused on what’s best for students. I applaud Robert’s thoughtful, caring approach and am confident he will make an excellent School Board member for the Springfield District."
Shirley Ginwright Immediate Past President, Fairfax County NAACP
"When we look for someone to represent our children, we want someone who represents ALL of the children, regardless of their race, gender or disability. The representative is the VOICE of those children and we can’t have someone who is complacent or just refuse to engage in a civil discussion, around issues they are not comfortable with. Robert Walter is the representative needed in the Springfield district and what we need on the FCSB. He will represent ALL of our children and fight for what is right, regardless of how controversial. With children in FCPS, Robert knows what the issues are and what needs to be done to help make changes and improve our school system. He is a team player and leader. "
Jeremy Mayer Associate Professor in the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University

We need good people like Robert in public service, especially now, when so much of our politics is ugly and bitter. Electing Robert would be a small step in the right direction."
