|Just got this from Del. Rob Krupicka...wow, I did NOT expect that!P.S. My understanding is that there are only 10 days until the filing deadline, which is not much time for anyone to decide to run, get organized, gather signatures, etc.|
Serving the people of Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax has been one of the greatest honors of my life. For the past 12 years, I have had the chance to serve as an elected official in one of the most vibrant, diverse, civically-engaged places in the United States. It is always humbling to talk to my constituents because they always know so much about so many issues and they always teach me something.Coming back from session this year, I was forced to evaluate the number of hours in the day and how I fill them. Between business, family, and public service, it is clear that I'm burning more candles at more ends than I can sustain.

I believe in Virginia's part-time public service model. It is designed to minimize politics as a career and to give a variety of people the chance to serve and better the Commonwealth. It also inevitably creates conflict with an individual's family, financial, and career needs. After 12 years, that conflict has become too stark for me.There are many good people who have the time and passion to serve the 45th district well. I know the district will be well-served by whomever holds the 45th district delegate seat.
