WARD IV REPRESENTATIVE - LYNCHBURG CITY COUNCIL
A YOUNG REPUBLICAN ON CITY COUNCIL
Hello! My name is Chris Faraldi and I have called Lynchburg home since 2013. Currently, the Wyndhurst area is my neighborhood. Faith is very important to me. As a son of a pastor, Christ is an integral piece of my life. I am a two-time graduate of Liberty University, with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies (with a focus on Government and Pastoral Leadership) and an M.A. in Executive Leadership.
Folks describe me as a young, outspoken conservative Republican, who is a champion for conservative principles, fiscal responsibility, continued economic development, and prioritizing public safety on Lynchburg City Council.
I'm no stranger to public policy and campaigns, having had the opportunity of working for Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Chuck Grassley, Representatives Bob Goodlatte and Tom Garrett, State Senator Mark Peake, and Delegate Wendell Walker, all in varying capacities.
As one who desires to ensure our business community is properly served and developed, for a time I served as the legislative specialist with the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance, representing over 750 businesses and 43,000 employees, advancing pro-business legislation before local and state government.
In my downtime, I am an avid fisherman and I love spending time outdoors with my dog, Duke. I enjoy baseball and football, and cheer on the Liberty Flames whenever I get the chance.
After receiving the most votes for a single candidate in the history of Ward IV, 1,569 votes - 61% of the vote - I am honored to have been elected to Lynchburg City Council in May of 2020. My term runs from July 1, 2020 until December 31, 2024.
Chris Faraldi, M.A.
