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 and am currently living in the Wyndhurst area. As a son of a pastor, my faith in 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, having had the opportunity of working for Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Chuck Grassley, Representative Bob Goodlatte, Representative Tom Garrett, and State Senator Mark Peake, all in various capacities.
I have also 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. Currently, my full-time job is the Legislative Assistant for Delegate Wendell Walker.
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 June 30, 2024.
Chris Faraldi, M.A.
Ward IV Representative
