Less than a day after the announcement [by Del. David Englin that he would vacate his seat], City Councilman Rob Krupicka (D) confirmed he intended to run for the open seat. Krupicka ran for the Virginia Senate last year but lost the Democratic nomination to fellow Del Ray resident state Sen. Adam Ebbin (D-30).
“I’ve been pretty clear that I’m pretty interested in the policies and politics that are happening in Richmond and this is the chance for me to continue the work I started with the senate campaign,” Krupicka, also a member of the state Board of Education, said.
Good for Rob, I think he’d make a great Delegate (he also would have made an excellent State Senator, but I could never decide between Adam Ebbin, Libby Garvey and him) and will be happy to support him for this position. Go Rob!
P.S. Here’s my interview with Rob when he was running for State Senate last year.
