Proudly Serving the City of Fairfax and Parts of Fairfax County
I'm David Bulova and I represent the 37th District - the heart of Fairfax - in the Virginia House of Delegates.
As a life-long resident of Fairfax, I know how hard we have worked to build a vibrant and caring community. We need common-sense leadership in the General Assembly to continue to build our quality of life and to invest in our future. We also need leadership that will work with, and not against, our county and city governments to solve our common challenges.
I believe strongly in the value of public service, responsibility, honesty, hard work, and fairness. I also believe in listening. Each of us brings an important perspective and I value your input. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas.
I hope that you will explore my website and check back for updates and special events. Together, we can make the 37th district an even better place to live, work and raise our families! Feel free to contact me with your feedback on any issue.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Alex, Gretchen, Grayson, David, and Josette Bulova

Greetings from Richmond! This past Wednesday, the 2014 General Assembly was gaveled into session. This will be another busy year as we consider issues such as how to grow our economy, whether to expand Medicaid, fixing our mental health system, strengthening the ethics rules that apply to elected officials, and reforming the way we conduct testing in our schools. This year we will also be adopting our biennial budget.
Your feedback on these issues and more is very important to me. Please take the time to let your voice be heard by filling out my 2014 Constituent Survey. Also, mark your calendars for my annual Town Hall with Senator Chap Petersen on February 1st from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. at Fairfax City Hall.
With over 1,700 bills introduced to-date, and many more on the way, much of the work of the General Assembly is conducted through the committee system. I am pleased to have been reappointed to three committees, including Education, General Laws, and Agriculture, Chesapeake, and Natural Resources. I am particularly excited about being placed on a new subcommittee in the Education Committee that will tackle educational reform issues. One of the many areas of reform discussed is our Standards of Learning. There is concern that the SOLs have resulted in “teaching to the test” at the expense of critical thinking skills. This concern was echoed by teachers, parents, and students alike as I knocked on doors and attended forums over the summer and fall. The million dollar question is how to re-achieve balance in our education system. I am thrilled to have an opportunity to be on the front lines of these very important discussions.

One of my favorite parts of being a delegate is having the opportunity to learn and hear different perspectives on the issues affecting our community.
I am pleased to continue a tradition started eight years ago by holding informal office hours where constituents are invited to talk about issues of interest or to learn about what is happening in Richmond. The format is casual and no appointment is needed. I will be having events in the City of Fairfax and Centreville. All events will take place on Saturdays from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Coffee is on me!
- November 9th at Jireh Bakery and Café, 13848 Lee Highway, Centreville
- December 7th at Main Street Bagel, 10268 Main Street, Fairfax
I am also happy to arrange individual appointments on specific issues or concerns. More information can be found at www.davidbulova.com. As always, it is an honor to serve you in the House of Delegates. Hope to see you for one of my coffees or out in the community.
