ATTLEBORO, MA – Republican Massachusetts 4th Congressional District nominee Julie Hall has earned the endorsement of former Massachusetts Air National Guard Commander Brigadier General (Ret) James LeFavor.

“I have known Julie for over 28 years, having been stationed with her at the same Air Force base in the early 90’s. As she progressed in the Air Force, she has proven herself an exemplary officer, serving her country with great honor and distinction. It has always struck me how much grit and tenacity Julie has shown through the years. Being a single mom didn’t slow her down one bit as she rose to very high levels as an administrator and commander. She knows what it takes to lead, and she does so with competence and compassion.  She has always put the people in her command first, and that will directly translate into putting the people she represents in her district first. I believe in Julie. That’s why I am wholeheartedly endorsing Julie Hall for Congress.,” said LeFavor.

Brig. Gen. James M. LeFavor was the Commander, Massachusetts Air National Guard, retiring in 2016. He was the principal advisor to The Adjutant General, Air Component Commander and Land Component Commander in the administration, coordination, planning, development and execution of all Air National Guard and National Guard Joint Staff programs.  He ensured the preparation of the 8,200 airmen and soldiers of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for contingency operations in both federal and state emergencies.

“It is an honor to receive the endorsement of someone who I have admired greatly during my service in the Air Force.  General LeFavor was a superb commander who embodies everything that is right when developing, planning and executing emergency plans when duty calls to serve our Commonwealth and our nation. In addition, General LeFavor is a Homeland Security expert, and his advice will be invaluable to me as a member of Congress,” said Hall.
