The Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance (See below for latest blog posts.)

Supporting family values in Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park

Welcome to the website of the Prince William and Manassas Family Alliance (PWMFA). We are a grassroots organization of citizens of Prince William County and the independent cities of Manassas and Manassas Park, Virginia, dedicated to supporting and promoting the values inherent in the concept of family. Learn more about us.

Where they stand

  • The principal goal of the Family Alliance is to help Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park voters learn more about candidates seeking to represent them in public office. Our focus is especially directed at the County and City school boards, the Board of County Supervisors and Manassas and Manassas Park City Councils. We also concentrate on State legislative candidates with the aim of informing the voting public on where candidates stand regarding key issues affecting the family.

    Here are some of the projects we are currently undertaking:

    • We’re soliciting the positions of candidates seeking local public offices in both the General and Primary elections in the 2019 election cycle.
    • We maintain an active website (www.familyallianceonline.org) to draw attention to school issues, elections and the need for Christian leadership on issues affecting the family.
    • We seek to build a network of church contacts throughout Prince William and the two cities (Manassas and Manassas Park) with the aim of promoting the institution of the family and an educated electorate.
    • We hold candidate forums/interviews  to give pastors and candidates an opportunity to explore the views of candidates or potential candidates.

Some of our Achievements

  • Led the successful campaign for the Marriage Amendment in 2006, carrying Prince William County and Manassas by a larger margin than statewide.
  • Led the successful fight against off-track betting in Manassas Park in 2004.
  • Distributed Voter Guides to Prince William County churches area.
  • Successfully promoted internet filtering in public libraries and abstinence-based family life education.

WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS?

Is the Prince William – Manassas Family Alliance a popular website. Not yet, but we are working on it. Unfortunately, we have encountered some obstacles. Consider chart below.

We hit a peak on June 11th. That was the day of the Primary Election. So a lot of people were searching for information on the election.  Who sent people to our website?

Bing was the big hitter followed by Yahoo, and duckduckgo.com. Google Search, surprisingly, was a distant fourth. Since Google search has over 70 percent of the market, capturing 85 percent of the mobile market (see search engines in usa ranked by popularity), it is kind of odd we got such a small number of hits from Google. What is going on? Is this a reflection of Google’s political bias?

So what do we do? Well, the best advertising is still word of mouth. So we think the solution is to post content on our website that people want to see. With respect to our mission, what is that content?

  • We are local organization focused on the welfare of the family. So we will focus on local politics. That includes explaining our candidate surveys and the questions we ask.
  • The primary threat to the family is the degeneration of our culture. Since we protect our children from evil by teaching them wisdom, we will focus on what is and is not being taught in our schools. In addition, we will encourage parents and grandparents to assume responsibility for the instruction of their children and grandchildren.

If you find something you read here interesting, please feel free to tell your friends. If you have suggestions or just want to comment, please do that too. We encourage polite discussion.
