Arlington's 47th District in the House of Delegates is facing a heated Democratic primary race, but candidate Miles Grant (The Green Miles) is also using his campaign to help pass the Employee Free Choice Act. This Saturday at his Campaign HQ, Miles will host grassroots volunteers to meet with an SEIU organizer to discuss and write letters about this legislation to Senator Webb and Senator Warner. We will be writing letters to Senator Webb to cosponsor the Employee Free Choice Act and to Senator Warner to support it.
This latest endorsement for Miles by Charlie really says a lot about who is the strongest progressive voice in the race. I'm a big supporter of Miles because he has strong stances on issues like gay marriage - which I believe is essential for the next Delegate from the 47th District. Here's the Press Release in full:
Charley Conrad, a leading Arlington Democratic activist and one of Virginia’s top gay rights advocates, announced his endorsement today of Miles Grant for House of Delegates in Virginia’s 47th district.
My friend and former RK blogger and Community Activist, Miles Grant is having an event Tuesday 13, from 6:00-8:00 at King Street Blues, please stop by if you are in the area. Details below:
It's a New Year and an election year in Virginia. While many of you know Miles, there are probably a few who do not and I'm sure you all have friends who don't know Miles and/or that there is even an election this year.
