Democrats Help Moon in Fairfax

Anita Kumar

Democratic candidates for governor will help School Board member Ilryong Moon (D) in tomorrow's special election to fill a spot on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.

State Sen. R. Creigh Deeds will make phone calls at the Moon campaign headquarters in Annandale. Former delegate Brian Moran has sent staff to help Moon's campaign tonight and Moran will be at his headquarters tomorrow morning to make calls. Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAulifee helped with canvassing and has made his headquarters available tomorrow.

"We need to elect Ilryong Moon to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday," Deeds said. "The enthusiasm of Ilryong's volunteers is one of the greatest assets of his campaign. I look forward to joining his grassroots team to help get out the vote for Ilryong in the Braddock district."

The race pits Moon against lawyer and community activist John Cook (R) and accountant Carey C. Campbell, an independent. Moon and Cook are vowing to continue the legacy of Supervisor Sharon Bulova (D), who vacated her Braddock District seat when she was elected chairman of the 10-member board last month.

Nice to see so many people active in the local race. But a member of the Independent team - the only campaign that visited every door in the Braddock District - I can report that voters are upset about all the robocalls. They are disappointed that the only contact they had with the two party candidates was a slew of mailings. And they are not happy with the road sign litter.

That is why if the independent voters and those that are tired of politics as usual turn out on Tuesday, the independent Carey Campbell will get elected.

The Wapo's coverage is biased towards the least qualified candidate, Moon. Cook has far more experience in the community, he has been in the trenches. Moon is getting support from the usual guilty suspects, Kaine, and Mcaulliffe the Global Crossing fraudster.

I know nobody from any independent campaign came to my door! Lived here in Braddock district for 19 years and over the years, I had Sharon Bulova come to my door several times and I saw Cook as well this time. I always voted for Bulova because she asked for my vote and cared enough to listen to my concerns. I did not like Moon as I tried to talk to him once and he brushed me off. So Cook, who asked for my support and seemed interested in my concern for boarding houses gets my support this time. I can't believe Moon would do anything about the invasion of our neighborhoods of these single illegals living in boarding houses. He sure did not want to talk about it when I tried to ask about the issue!
