Maura’s statement following the Arlington County Democratic caucuses:
Thank you to everyone for all of your support and encouragement throughout this campaign. I am truly honored and humbled by your faith and trust in me; and I am heartened that so many across this County share my passion and vision for our children and for our schools.
Congratulations to Monique O’Grady on her victory. I am confident Monique will take advantage of the opportunities ahead to act in the interest of our entire community, and to ensure the future quality of every school and our system as a whole.
Our work is not done! I urge everyone to stay engaged and to continue pushing our message forward. To help keep the momentum going, I invite you to join me for a very informal appreciation gathering on Sunday, May 21st between 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. at 3519 7th Street South. Let’s make sure our voices continue to be heard. Our children are counting on us!
