At the July 26th Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC) general membership meeting at Fairfax High School, members present voted to endorse Ryan McElveen for School Board At-Large. Moon, Velkoff and Espy Glassman had been endorsed at the May 24th meeting; however, Espy Glassman had since withdrawn necessitating a special vacancy endorsement vote. McElveen barely missed winning the endorsement at the May 24th meeting and was faced by Jeannie Armstrong in this new vote. A single ballot from the 197 members present decided in favor of Ryan McElveen.
Johna Good Gagnon and George Lamb, previously endorsed by FCDC, are both incumbent Directors for the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District seeking re-election and re-endorsement. A voice vote heartily and unanimously endorsed both again this year.
The 2011 General Election is on Tuesday, November 8th. Polls are open from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm.
On Tuesday July 12, the FCDC Steering Committee unanimously approved the selection of Frank Anderson as our new Executive Director. Selected from more than 40 candidates, the steering committee was unanimous and enthusiastic in his selection.
Frank is a recent graduate of George Mason University and new father. He is well known in the Democratic community in Northern Virginia and across the Commonwealth as a hard-working, technologically proficient, grass-roots oriented and committed Democrat. Frank has been involved with many, many campaigns and has been an important leader in The Brigades. A Fairfax County resident, Frank is most recently Vice Chair of the Springfield District Democratic Committee. He is also the Legislative Chair of the Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Associations.
Frank will be a terrifically valuable asset to the FCDC family to help deliver the vision of the Committee in our mission to elect Democrats, and we all look forward to working with him.
