"Welcome to the big leagues Mr. Cook" Scott Surovell dismantles Cook on FCDC Blog

If WaPo thought the recent special election in Fairfax County for Braddock's seat on the Board of Supervisors would be a quiet way to put another endorsement in the R column, they were mistaken. Scott Surovell, Chairman of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee, dismantles the WaPo endorsement of Cook using Cook's own swearing in ceremony speech.

Fairfax County Dems Nominate Sharon Bulova

Fairfax County Dems (FCDC) officially nominated Supervisor Sharon Bulova to run for County Board Chair last night. She is the only candidate who filed, and is therefore the nominee. Incidentally, she probably would have won against any competition. The special election to fill Representative-Elect Gerry Connolly's chair will be held on Feb. 3, 2009.

As of 5:00 p.m. today, only one candidate has filed to run for the Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors - Supervisor Sharon Bulova. Pursuant to the Call to Caucus issued last week, the unassembled caucus has been canceled and the Fairfax County Democratic Committee congratulates our nominee Sharon Bulova for the February 3, 2009 special election to replace the vacancy created by the resignation of Gerry Connolly.

Special Election for Fairfax County Chair Set

February 3, 2009 is set as the date for Fairfax County’s Special Election for Chairman of the Board of Supervisors.

Thus far, Sharon Bulova (Braddock) is the only democratic candidate aspiring to the Chairmanship. As Vice-Chair of the Board, and Chair of the Board’s budget Committee, Bulova has pledged to address the county’s fiscal condition while “protecting the things we care about.”

The Fairfax County Democratic Committee has set December 20th for a firehouse primary should a Democratic challenger emerge.

The democratic nominee will run against Republican Pat Herrity, son of past Chair Jack Herrity. Pat is now serving his first term as Springfield District Supervisor.

Bulova, a very popular supervisor in an increasingly blue County, is the favorite. Nevertheless, name recognition could make Herrity a tough challenger for Bulova, especially in the southwest corner of the County.
