School Board Chair Libby "Politics First" Garvey to Run for VA Senate

Hi Yupette,

Appears that Arlington School Board Chair Libby "Politics First" Garvey will officially enter the Democratic race to succeed Senator Patsy Ticer. As you may remember Libby was largely responsible for the deterioration of South Arlington schools before SOLs and No Child Left Behind were enacted. Her defense of the deplorable state of Wakefield High School has amounted to a big yawn and a "So What?". We need Libby Garvey in the Virginia Senate like we need Zimmerman's trolley on the Pike.

Let's give some credit to Mary Hynes for South Arlington's inferior schools.

Most of Senator Ticer's district is in Alexandria, where Libby is considered another big BSer from Arlington County.

Alexandria Times is reporting that Delegate Adam Ebbin would face City Councilman Rob Krupicka in a Democratic Primary.

Anyone have any advance information about whether Libby's Fairlington precinct would still be included in Senator Ticer's district after redistricting?

I wish she would retire from the School Board. I am sick and tired of this woman palying partisan politics with our children as her pawns.

Time for Libby to retire. Her kids have been out of Arlington's schools for 15 years.

She's worse and worse every school year. Yes, Chris Zimmerman controls our schools. The School Board only rubbber stanps his spending priorities.

Second the motion for Libby Garvey to retire. Take Abby 'I'm a Lawyer' Raphael with you.

Libby Garvey is another Fairlington malicious busybody.

Libby Garvey and Mary Hynes made Abingdon School into a total Party Zone for two years (before SOLs and No Child). Was so bad that they brought in Meg Tucillo as Principal to save the school. Then they had Paulie Ferguson remove all the ESL students (of course Paulie sent his kids to Arlington Traditional School). I got my kid out of Abingdon School and sent her to a private day school. Cost me $20,000 a year.

Oh, let's not forget Nanny Hunt who was making a mess of the Fairlington Villages condo association at the same time and who, along with Libby, was spreading malicious rumors about PO'd Abingdon School parents like rats spread the plague during the Middle Ages.

This is the woman who wants to succeed Senator Ticer. And Nanny Nancy Hunt, who can't competently manage the restaurant music in Shirlington Village, has been placed in charge of the Planning Commission's Long Range Planning Committee and the "planning" for East Falls Church.

Libby Garvey should have been off the School Board ten years ago.

Anyone know how many class rooms the new Wakefield HS will fall short when it opens?

School Board announced that the school system will have 5,400 more students in 5 years. No wonder they've signed on to Zimmerman's massive gentrification. Go Libby.

In a mailing this week to local Democrats Libby stated her two qualifications for State Senate are that she's served on the Arlington School Board for 14 years and Arlington has great schools.

Libby can't find $425,000 to save the Planetarium, but millions are available for team sports.
