Lobbyist Seeks Seat on Fairfax City Council
A familiar face in Virginia politics has decided to run for office himself.
Dan Drummond, a senior vice president at the Powell Tate public affairs company, is running for a seat on the Fairfax City Council.
Drummond previously worked as communications director for U.S. Rep. James P. Moran, Jr. ( D-Va.) and as legislative reporter in Richmond for the Washington Times.
His clients include non-profit organizations, information technology companies and Northrop Grumman, the global defense giant. During this year's legislative session, he is receiving attention for his work with the Community Financial Services Association of America, which represents the payday loan industry which legislators are trying to further regulate.
Drummond said he has been involved in many local groups in Fairfax City, where he has lived since 2000.
"I want to work toward furthering the vision of a Fairfax City that balances economic growth with the unique small town nature of our city,'' he wrote in a recent email to supporters announcing his candidacy. "And I want to do this while we provide the services needed for a population that continues to grow with young families but ensuring established residents have a place to call home."
Drummond, 33, is one of 11 people seeking six at-large, non-partisan seats in the May 6 election.
