“As a lifelong Democrat, I served as Chair of the Arlington County Democratic Committee admiring its rich legacy of success, but understanding that simply resting on past laurels is a recipe for failure in politics, in government, and in life. I also wanted to bring new people and new ways of thinking into the Democratic Party. I believe in the politics of addition, not the politics of subtraction.
“I support Libby because her leadership style strikes the same balance: preserve all that remains relevant and valuable, but have the courage to speak out when change is best for the Democratic Party and the community.”
