See the video, below, of today’s Arlington County Board debate on the Kojo Nnamdi Show. As always, Democrat Erik Gutshall demonstrated that not only does he know Arlington County inside and out, but that he has a vision for the future of Arlington and the skill set to turn that vision into reality. In contrast, incumbent Libby Garvey has demonstrated weak leadership skills, has been highly divisive and even demagogic, while lacking vision and follow-through, among many other problems. As for Garvey supporters who claim that she’s “independent,” that doesn’t tell us anything, per se — it’s what the person’s ideas are, whether they are good ideas, and whether the person is skilled at bringing people together to implement those ideas. In my view, Garvey fails on all counts, while Gutshall has a great chance of succeeding on all counts. So…if you’re a DEMOCRAT, definitely vote for DEMOCRAT Erik Gutshall on Tuesday in the DEMOCRATIC primary. Obviously, Garvey and her allies — Republican John Vihstadt, first and foremost – are working hard to get out as many Republicans as possible for Garvey; let’s make sure that strategy fails.
