Since the beginning of the McAuliffe administration, 935 economic development deals have been closed in Virginia worth $15.89 billion in capital investment, which is more than any previous governor in the first 39 months in office. Governor McAuliffe is focused on growing the #NewVAEconomy and continuing our historic economic success.

The Governor’s Top 5

    1. Governor McAuliffe Pardons Minor Driving Offense of Undocumented Mother of Two Facing Deportation

      • What are the details of this announcement?
      • “Today I pardoned Liliana Cruz Mendez, a mother of two who lives in Falls Church, for minor driving offenses that may contribute to her deportation. While this pardon will not necessarily ensure that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agrees to return Ms. Mendez to her husband and two children, I hope it will send a clear message that tearing this family apart will not make our Commonwealth or our country safer,” said Governor McAuliffe. “If President Trump and his administration are serious about making our nation safer, they will release Ms. Mendez, focus their immigration enforcement efforts on legitimate threats to our public safety and get behind the comprehensive immigration reform our nation needs.”

      • “Today’s announcement is a great opportunity for the Commonwealth to further our efforts to advance energy efficiency and renewable energy generation in the new Virginia economy, and I thank Russell County Public Schools and Trane for partnering on this project,” said Governor McAuliffe. “Now more than ever, we need to think differently about what a growing economy looks like in this region and how we can work together to diversify the economic base and bring high-growth industries to the area. I’m pleased that we are able to do just that here in Russell County today. Projects like these are creating jobs of the future that will help rebuild the local economy, drive investments to improve local infrastructure, and create a better way of life for families.”
