Excellent event this morning at Arlington Commissioner of the Revenue Ingrid Morroy’s house (see video of Ingrid speaking in the comments section of this post) for Arlington County Board Democratic nominee Alan Howze, with special guest LG Ralph Northam (see video below). Elected officials in attendance – along with about 100 other people – included Senator Barbara Favola, Senator Adam Ebbin, Delegate Patrick Hope, Delegate Bob Brink, Delegate Rob Krupicka, Arlington County Board members Jay Fisette, Walter Tejada and Mary Hynes, and Arlington School Board members Abby Raphael and Noah Simon (note: former State Senator Mary Margaret Whipple was there as well). The election’s April 8, with Howze running against big-time Republican donor John Vihstadt. And though you’d assume Howze would win easily in heavily Democratic Arlington, that won’t necessarily be the case, as special elections come down to “who shows up” more than any other type of election. So tell everyone you know to vote on April 8 for Alan Howze, and if you can help in other ways – phone banking, door knocking, etc. – before April 8, please do! Thanks.
