Alexandria council member considers Va. Senate run

By Christy Goodman

Rob Krupicka, an Alexandria City Council member, will run for the Virginia Senate if Sen. Patricia S. Ticer (D-Alexandria) decides to retire.

"If Senator Ticer decides to retire, I plan to run for the 30th State Senate District and I'd like to ask for your help and support," Krupicka said in a blog post.

He invited folks interested in being on a new "Team Krupicka" to his home later this month for an organizational meeting.

"I believe greatly in this community and in the issues and work that Senator Ticer is committed to. I've never felt more strongly about the potential for Virginia to lead the nation in education, job creation, the environment and clean energy," Krupicka wrote.

Ticer originally was elected to the 30th District in 1995. The district covers portions of Alexandria, Arlington and Fairfax counties.

..where hopefully he won't be able to do any damage to Alexandria or the state...

Plus, if Krupicka goes to the state senate that'll leave a hole for one more conservative vote on the city council.

See ya later Rob!
