Anita Kumar

Del. Albert C. Eisenberg (D-Arlington), who has served in the House of Delegates since 2004, announced today that he will not run for re-election in November.

Eisenberg, a former longterm Arlington County Board member and chairman, told his colleagues of his decision in an eloquent speech this afternoon on the House floor. He received a standing ovation.

"We thank you for your service,'' House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) said.

The following is a statement by Alfonso Lopez, longtime Democratic activist and leader in Arlington County, on the Retirement of Delegate Albert Eisenberg (D-47):

“Al Eisenberg has been a champion for Arlington in the House of Delegates since his election in 2003. The leadership he has as demonstrated over his thirty years of service to the county, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and our nation will be missed by all of Arlington and most of all by those who have been lucky enough to count Al and his family as friends. We all wish Al and his family the best."

“This is a critical time for Arlington and Virginia as our economy continues to struggle, people fight to keep their homes, and the Democratic Party works hard to keep moving the Commonwealth forward, not back. In the future, the 47th District must have the kind of experience and leadership in the House of Delegates that Arlington is known for.”
