Clement, Dorsey to Run for County Board







Hi Yupette,

I ran into Christian Dorsey yesterday and he's obtaining petition signatures for a run for Arlington County Board. Heard through a friend in the Green Party that Audrey Clement will run for County Board again.

Chris Dorsey is not the local activist he once was. He works at the Economic Policy Institute, where he analyzes and re-analyzes the disparity between race and ethnic origin and wealth. He also serves on the board of the Arlington Free Clinic and on one of the committees that's planning the Abingdon School renovation, although he lives in North Arlington.

Audrey Clement is running for County Board again. How much coverage her campaign receives from media that are profoundly biased against third party candidates and independents remains to be seen, probably not much.

Anyway, thanks for your blog.

Kip

Christian Dorsey was appointed to Abingdon's Public Facilities Review Committee, which is packed with SUV soccer parents who want to 'Ashlawn' Abingdon's playing fields to provide more parking and drop-off space for themselves and their soccer brats.

With creeps like Scott McCaffrey and Scott Brodbeck running the local media, why does Audrey Clement bother?

They don't come close to Nick "Yellow Dog" Benton.

Audrey Clement should raise the massive waste of tax dollars on school buses that are almost empty because so many parents drive their kids to school as a campaign issue.

Has anyone done a cost analysis of what it costs APS to run a school bus to pick up and drop off 5 kids to their school vs what it would cost to have taxicabs pick them up and drop them off?

Do we want an African-American version of Walter Tejada on the County Board? Not me!

Audrey Clement should ask why APS only wants to hire teachers with Masters Degrees with more than 10 years experience who typically earn more than $75,000 for teaching 10 months.

So have the 'local media' even asked Clement and Dorsey if they're running?

Check out Chris Dorsey's profile on Linkedln. Young PlutoCrat? You decide.

"Local Media" are chamber of commerce boosters and boosters for the status quo.

Wash Post is the worst. Summer interns vet local candidates and make endorsement recommendations to the Post's editorial board.

Scott McCaffrey ignored the independent County Board candidates who were collecting petition signatures at the CivFed meeting last night.

Tonight he'll attend the Arlington Democratic Party's monthly meeting and write an extensive report about all the Democrats who are running for CB...Peter Fallon, Cord Thomas...etc.

Another reason to believe that 'Journalism' is an oxymoron in Arlington.
