Video: Arlington County Board Member Mary Hynes Says Farewell to ACDC

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

From a bit earlier this evening at the Arlington County Democratic Committee (ACDC) meeting -- County Board member Mary Hynes says farewell to ACDC (and receives not one but two standing ovations) after announcing earlier in the day that she will not be seeking reelection this year. Later in the meeting, ACDC Chair Kip Malinosky proposed the method of nomination be a primary in early June, and there was no objection (at least not vocally -- I know of several people, myself included, who would have preferred a way to use Instant Runoff Voting, which because this is Virginia, for some idiotic reason we can't use in a primary...argh). How many candidates will run for the two openings (Hynes and Walter Tejada are both stepping down at the end of their terms this year) on the Arlington County Board? Stay tuned...could be a big field!
