Ilryong Moon Concedes in the Braddock Supervisor Race

Moon's statement

March 11, 2009

For Immediate Release:
I was certainly hoping for better numbers from the voting machines at Fairview Precinct today, but the numbers show otherwise. Even though I have a right to ask for a recount under state law and also challenge the election result due to irregularities with the voting machines used at Fairview precinct, I have decided not to do so. Given the state of our economy, the taxpayers' resources should be focused on providing services to Fairfax County's residents and Braddock District's residents need someone to represent them on the Board of Supervisors to start working on important issues such as budget and transportation as soon as possible. I do not want to cause any delay.

I am humbled by and grateful for all the support that I have received from many supporters and more than 6,000 votes cast in the special election on Tuesday. I would like to congratulate Mr. John Cook for waging a strong campaign and wish him well on the Board. I look forward to working with him on education issues as a school board member.

Cook (R) wins Fairview by 19 votes, Braddock district by 89..

Quiet Leadership for Braddock District

One thing people notice about Ilryong Moon, democratic candidate for Braddock District Supervisor in the upcoming special election on MARCH 10, is how soft spoken he is.

Barely registering on my tape deck, he explains a philosophy of public service that leads to a habit of quiet:

You know, there are people who make up their own mind and pretend to listen to people.

I don’t do that. . . .

I listen patiently, patient to listen before I reach a decision.

That is something I would like to continue doing as a member of the Board of Supervisors.

Moon is running against Republican John Cook and independent Carey Campbell to replace Sharon Bulova in the second special election to hit Braddock Distirct since November, after one of the most active firehouse primaries anyone can remember. Republicans are banking on democratic burn out to sneak another one onto the board, in the aftermath of unexpectedly close races in special elections for the 46th HOD, and for Fairfax Board of Supervisors Chair. There's MORE!
