Video: Arlington County Democrats’ JJ Dinner 2014


Here’s some video of last night’s Arlington County Democratic Committee (ACDC) Jefferson-Jackson Dinner 2014. Speakers included Representatives Gerry Connolly, Donna Edwards and Xavier Becerra, plus of course Jim Moran. In addition, we were addressed by Arlington County Board nominee Alan Howze and Arlington School Board nominee Barbara Kanninen. Organizers John Grant and Conor Marshall did an excellent job, as the dinner went off very smoothly and successfully. Nice job everybody!

By the way, it was awesome to run into my old Webb for Senate colleague Adrienne Christian, now Donna Edwards’ Chief of Staff, who was introducing 2nd CD Democratic nominee Suzanne Patrick to people at last night’s event. Patrick seems like she has the makings of a fine candidate against the abysmal Rep. Scott Rigell. It was also good talking to Greg Greeley, Mark Levine, Don Beyer, Nancy Van Doren, Kevin Wolf (Barbara Kanninen’s husband), Alan and Pam Howze, Alfonso Lopez, Bob Brink, Alexandria Democratic Committee Chair Clarence Tong, Ben Tribbett, Dave Leichtman, Larry Roberts, Kip Malinosky, Kip’s parents and his girlfriend Erica Jackson, Ingrid and Judith Morroy, and many others.

With that, here’s video of ACDC Chair Kip Malinosky welcoming everyone to the dinner and celebrating the many successes of Arlington Democrats over the past couple years. I’ll post more video in the comments section.
