Filler-Corn sworn in as delegate, one day after narrow win in Fairfax
Democrat Eileen Filler-Corn was sworn as a delegate Wednesday, a day after squeaking by with less than half a percent margin in a special election in central Fairfax County.
Led by fellow Fairfax County Democrats to the ceremonial mace below the speaker's podium, Filler-Corn, 45, recited the oath of office six minutes after the daily session began.
Filler-Corn, who is a lobbyist, defeated Republican lobbyist Kerry D. Bolognese by 37 votes out of more than 11,000 cast in a race with an unusually high turnout for a special election. Filler-Corn received 5,758 votes to Bolognese's 5,721. She fills the seat vacated by Sen. David W. Marsden (D-Fairfax), who won a special election in mid-January against a Republican former School Board member.
