Letter: Heavy-Hitting Dems Support Tobar

Steve -

Just wanted to make sure you know about the three endorsements Andres Tobar picked up on Tuesday [March 12]: [Arlington County Board members] Chris Zimmerman, and Walter Tejada, and [Arlington Public School Board Member] Emma Violand-Sanchez. I understand there may be more announced shortly.

You can read about it at his site:

Thank you.

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

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

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

Miles Grant won the support of activist Charlie Conrad earlier this week (March 9 post).

Adam Parkhomenko won the endorsement of Virginia Sen. Patsy Ticer in the first week of March. Mr. Parkomenko earlier won the endorsement of Al Eisenberg's sons; read the Sun Gazette's story here (from Feb. 19).

Buckingham Community Civic Association President Pat Hope recently picked up the endorsement of Arlington County Sherrif Beth Arthur and others. Earlier, two county board members and a former delegate gave him their support--read the Sun Gazette story here (from Feb. 17). He has won the endorsement of Elaine Furlow (Feb. 28), a former school board member and chair, and the endorsement of Ted Bilich,Ashton Height's Civic Association President (from Feb. 19).

They all made news in the Connection on Feb. 3 and again on Feb. 25
