Big Winner in County Board Race - Libby Garvey


Hi Yupette,

I live in South Fairlington and based on what I could see during John Vihstadt's election campaign the biggest winner, besides Mr. Vihstadt, is Libby Garvey. Her common sense approach to County Government is a significant change from Chris Zimmerman, who could have cared less about anything but Chris Zimmerman.

Libby was largely responsible for helping John Vihstadt get elected. She was very active in the last weeks of the campaign in Fairlington and Abingdon precincts, which went overwhelmingly for Vihstadt, and also overwhelmingly for Beyer and Warner.

It will be interesting to see what happens early next year when candidates begin organizing for the 2015 elections. Yes, there are electable County Board candidates out there who are not Democrats. It remains to be seen whether Libby can again help a non-incumbent overcome the institutional and media bias against non-Democrats. So I guess we'll have to stay tuned until early next year.

She endured a lot of bullying from Chris when they served together on the CB.

Time for a fiscally conservative Democrat who's sick and tired of the corruption to run next year as an Independent.

Corruption? How many millions in $100 gift cards will be handed out to County employees this holiday season?

Libby was like the Energizer Bunny for Vihstadt. You wouldn't believe she's over 60 from the way she was interacting with voters.

Audrey Clement is 65, which is also hard to believe.

Time for Frank O'Leary, the Whipples, and the other Party Elite to step aside.

I want and will work for a fiscally conservative anti-streetcar Democrat elected to the County Board next year.
