I had a chance to sit down for lunch with Paul Krizek the other day and was very impressed. Krizek, who is unopposed at the moment, is a strong progressive and environmentalist who should be a strong successor to Del. Scott Surovell, who is running for State Senate. This district is strongly Democratic, with Mark Herring having won it 64%-36% in 2013, so the most important thing is that we have someone who will go down to Richmond and fight against the reactionary forces trying to turn Virginia backwards (and FOR progressive and environmental values). From what I’ve seen so far, including in this video from his campaign kickoff yesterday, Paul Krizek will do just that. I look forward to hearing more about his candidacy.
