Hope Picks Up Furlow Endorsement

Buckinghamster Patrick Hope has picked up the endorsement of Elaine Furlow, a former school board member and chair, his campaign said in a statement. Mr. Hope is running for the 47th district in the House of Delegates against four other contenders.

"Patrick is a careful listener and knows how to balance hearing our concerns with action and decision-making to get things done,” said Elaine Furlow in the statement. “Patrick works uncommonly well with people to solve difficult problems, and Arlington will be well served by having him going to bat for us in the state legislature."

Arlingtonians will choose the Democratic contender in a June 9 primary. Republicans have yet to field a candidate.

Mr. Hope picked up the endorsement of Ashton Height's Civic Association President Ted Bilich (from Feb. 19).

Buckingham Community Civic Association President Pat Hope recently picked up the endorsement of two county board members and a former delegate--read the Sun Gazette story here (from Feb. 17).

The five candidates, all Democrats, in the race include:

Miles Grant; Patrick Hope; Alan Howze; Adam Parkhomenko; Andreas Tobar.
