8 Apr

Arlington County voters elected John E. Vihstadt, a Republican/Independent, to the Democratic dominated Arlington County Board in a special election. According to unofficial election results, ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Mr. Vihstadt captured 56.99% of the vote, with 22,209 votes cast.   This upset victory reflects the growing discontent of the Arlington citizens with the nanny–state that Arlington county government has become, including the anti-family Arlington Department of Human Services/Child Protective Services.
