Arlington Republicans Will Nominate Kelly for County Board if Favola Wins

Hi Yupette,

News from my neighbor, who is a member of the Executive Committee of the Arlington County Republican Party, is that Mark Kelly will be the party's nominee to run in a special election next year if Barbara Favola wins her race for Virginia State Senate. The decision was made at ACRC's Executive Committee meeting last Sunday.

ACRC also decided not to endorse Audrey Clement for County Board. My neighbor, who is a moderate, said the neocons who control the ACRC had a laundry list of reasons for not endorsing her, most having to do with environmental issues.

ACRC's young tea partier neocons are eager to make a special County Board election a referendum on the County Board's fiscal and social priorities.

Thanks for your blog.

Moderate

Happy that something positive was accomplished at an ACRC Executive Cmmittee meeting, beyond the usual 'trash the socialists' rants and raves.

Greens have a positive agenda. All the Repubs want to do is complain.

They have to run Kelly, they would lose what's left of their credibility if they went another election without a candidate.

Well, the Civfed's Republican-dominated Revenues and Expenditures Committee only managed to shave a penny off the County's residential real estate tax rate this year, so how Republican are some of these Republicans?

CivFed's R & E Committee is Kubicki Theater. ACRC is dominated by a bunch of mean white neocons.

I heard that individual moderate Repubs will support Audrey Clement.

I think Merrick will do better than anyone expects.

Yes, regarding Merrick. This area is facing a jobs crunch. The Pentagon will take a big hit in programs and local employment. Barbara Favola is clueless.

Speaking of candidate grades, the guy who gives out the grades, Scott McCaffrey, gets an F for his newspaper's new blog software.
