Ms. Bailey has served with distinction in the Fairfax County Office of the County Attorney for approximately 25 years, overseeing efforts on affordable housing, land use, procurement, public records, and more.  As the Deputy County Attorney, Ms. Bailey has steadfastly guided the Office’s legal efforts on affordable housing matters including public-private partnerships.  Along with her professional work, Ms. Bailey is an active member of various statewide organizations, teaches college level courses and legal seminars, and consistently works to advance local government attorneys in Virginia.
