Ebbin, Garvey Rack Up Endorsements in 30th State Senate District Race


I received emails this morning from two Democratic campaigns in the 30th State Senate District, in the primary contest to replace Sen. Patsy Ticer, who is retiring.

First, I received an email from the Adam Ebbin campaign, reporting endorsements by “elected leaders from Arlington County: County Board Member Jay Fisette, Commissioner of Revenue Ingrid Morroy and Treasurer Frank O’Leary.” Fisette’s statement says, “When Arlington needed a public defender’s office to ensure the fairness of our judicial system, we turned to Adam Ebbin to help us secure the funding. When we needed him, he delivered, and will continue to do so in the Senate.” Morroy adds, “As a satisfied constituent of Adam’s, I’ve seen how involved he’s been in Arlington’s diverse neighborhoods and communities. He’s someone voters in the 30th District can trust to be their voice in the State Senate.” Last but not least, O’Leary asserts, “Adam will prove to be a sound investment for Arlington and the entire 30th District.”

Next, I got an email from the Libby Garvey campaign, announcing two endorsements for her candidacy:

Mt. Vernon District Supervisor Gerry Hyland and Fairfax County School Board member Dan Storck today officially endorsed Libby Garvey as their choice to replace Sen. Patsy Ticer in the Virginia Senate’s 30th District. “Libby Garvey offers a unique combination of vision and a proven track record of getting things done,” Hyland said. “Libby is exactly the style of leader we need working for us in Richmond.”

Dan Storck, who represents Mt. Vernon District on the Fairfax County School Board, added, “Libby Garvey has worked statewide to improve public education in Virginia and she has done just that for tens of thousands of students, including thousands in the Mount Vernon District. Her tenacity and effectiveness will serve us well as a state senator.”

I have not received any emails today from the Rob Krupicka campaign, but at the rate things are going, I wouldn’t be surprised if I do! 🙂

P.S. In other 30th Senate District news, the DelRay Patch reports on the first “forum” for the 30th District Democratic candidates. Something tells me there will be many, many more of these to come…
