Reid Goldstein Wins Arlington County Democratic Committee Caucus for
Arlington County School Board
Arlington, VA – May 16, 2015 – The Arlington County Democratic Committee (ACDC) announces that Reid Goldstein won the ACDC School Board Caucus, earning the ACDC endorsement for this fall’s election. Reid Goldstein received 1,252 votes; Sharon Dorsey received 648 votes.
Arlington County Democratic Chairman Kip Malinosky issued the following statement:
“We are proud to endorse Reid. He has demonstrated leadership on educational issues and in the larger community. Reid will not only be a great voice for balancing the needs of school facilities, but also for improving instruction for all of Arlington’s students.”
Reid Goldstein stated: “I am grateful for and humbled by the support of so many Arlingtonians, and I appreciate the work of the Arlington County Democratic Committee in making this possible. I want to thank my wife and daughters for their patience and support, as well as my campaign team for their outstanding hard work. I thank Sharon Dorsey for a positive, thoughtful and energetic campaign, and Abby Raphael for her years of service to Arlington families. Arlington has an outstanding public school system. We face the challenge of growing enrollment as families are drawn to Arlington by our tradition of excellent education. We must maintain that excellence going forward as we work to close the achievement gap, provide for growing enrollment, and ensure openness and respect for diversity. I look forward to working with Arlington Democrats in the November election campaign, and hope to earn election to the School Board to work for our schools for the next four years.”
