From the Chairman: Three Special Elections in Arlington

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July. Despite the challenges we face as a nation, we still are still blessed to live in the greatest nation on earth.

In Arlington, the week around the 4th saw three elected officials resign – creating three special elections. While two of those specials will occur simultaneously with the general election in November, one will take place SIX WEEKS from TODAY on August 19th.

Voters in the 48th House of Delegates district will head to the polls to elect a new member of the General Assembly on the 19th. If we work hard to support him, our next Delegate will be Republican Dave Foster. Foster was twice elected to the School Board in Arlington — besting the Democrat machine BOTH times. He was a Republican candidate for Attorney General in 2009. And, he served four years on the State Board of Education where he was elected President.

Ed Gillespie and Micah Edmond continue to campaign at a brisk pace. Both of these great candidates can use your support.

Lee District in Fairfax will be hosting a door knock this Saturday, July 12th at 9:30 am at the home of Anna Urman, 4410 Flintstone Road, Alexandria 22306 (map). Please join them if you are able.

The bottom line is there is much to do around the 8th District to elect Republicans. See you on the campaign trail.
