She's fought for sexual assault survivors, has a progressive vision to deliver real criminal justice reform, and will work to make sure the office reflects our values so Prince William County can become a safer, fairer, more just place for everyone. That's why I'll be voting for Amy on November 5."

Manassas Park City Councilmember Donald Shuemaker
Manassas Park City Councilmember Haseeb Javed
The Washington Post
"In Prince William, Amy Ashworth gets our endorsement in the Democratic primary over Tracey Lenox. Now a partner in a Manassas law firm, Ms. Ashworth worked in the commonwealth’s attorney’s office for 11 years, handling special victims’ units cases, including child sexual and physical abuse and homicide. That experience gives her insight into how to tackle domestic violence and work with juvenile offenders so that they don’t reoffend. She is committed to diversifying the office and focusing on crimes that do the most harm rather than simply seeking to put the most people in prison."
CASA In Action
"CASA in Action believes these individuals reflect our core values of equality, fairness, and accountability. [...] Ashworth understand[s] that our justice system must be aligned with our community values."
KML Regional Council of Carpenters
"The Keystone + Mountain + Lakes Regional Council of Carpenters is proud to endorse Amy Ashworth for Prince William County Commonwealth Attorney. Our industry is currently rife with employers that misclassify their workers, a practice that hurts working families, local revenues, and businesses that play by the rules. Amy’s experience advocating for fairness and equal opportunity for working families makes her perfectly qualified for the office of Commonwealth Attorney and we are confident that Amy will work to fight wage theft and tax fraud in the construction industry by holding bad actors accountable."
