Moran Gets Support in Arlington

Anita Kumar

Former Del. Brian J. Moran (D) received a slew of endorsements from elected leaders in Arlington County today in his race for governor.

Those endorsing Moran cited his proven record of leadership in Virginia and his record of fighting for families.

They include members of the General Assembly, Board of Supervisors and School Board, the commissioner of the revenue, clerk of court, treasurer and commonwealth's attorney.

Moran is running against Sen. R. Creigh Deeds (D-Bath) and Terry McAuliffe, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, in the June 9 primary.

It's County Board or County Board members, not Board of Supervisors.

Brian Moran keeps talking about a "proven record for Virgnia's families"... interesting. I don't think we are in the business these days of looking strictly at records. I think we need to look at people with new ideas to today's problems. Obviously Moran thinks he doesn't need to address those problems considering he resigned from his House of Delegates seat. Let's be honest - Moran's support isn't as strong as his supporters would like for us to all believe.

Your blog post reads like a press release. At least use some quotation marks?

UVANick is either very young or a Republican if that's the best he can do against Moran. Moran resigned from the House of Delegates SO he could focus on his campaign. Meh.

I'm neither Arlington Gay, but thanks for coming out.

Moran has been running for governor for years while serving in the House of Delegates. His lack of confidence shines through when he resigned at the last minute to "focus on his campaign"... let's be honest, he's pretty freaked out as Senator Saslaw said not too long ago. It is also a good thing he did resign, this way he can avoid tough votes in this upcoming session and he can stop treating his former constituents as an afterthought.

Must have been a hard decision between to hyper-partisan Democrats (Moran and McAuliffe) for the county government.

Oh and it is the county board...of supervisors.

Fairfax and other counties have Boards of Supervisors. Arlington's governing body is simply the Arlington County Board. Arlingtonians don't take well to being supervised.
