Press Statement from Libby Garvey:
I want to thank all of my supporters, volunteers and friends for their tremendous support, generosity, and all the good hard work we poured into this campaign together. While the result on Tuesday was not what we wanted, I think we really built something special over the past 8 months. I’m sorry it has to end.
I especially want to thank Patsy Ticer for all her support. Her endorsement and strong support will always be an honor I cherish.
Also I would like to recognize my campaign staff. They ran a campaign we can all be proud of and made it fun at the same time. As they head off to their next jobs, we all wish Max, James and Drew the very best. They will be successful, and getting to know them has been very rewarding indeed.
We all congratulate Delegate Adam Ebbin on his big win. I fully endorsed his candidacy when we spoke Tuesday night, and I encourage all of you to support him. Adam will be a strong voice in Richmond to stand up for us, and I look forward to working with him and all Democrats through November and beyond to keep the Virginia Senate in Democratic hands.
Finally, I cannot thank everyone enough. I am not sure what the future holds for me, but when one door closes, another always opens. As I continue my work on the Arlington School Board, I treasure the friendships I’ve made and renewed during this campaign. Please stay in touch.
