Independent Arlington County Board candidate Charles McCullough has been endorsed by the Working Families Party, a national political organization that aims to elect progressive leaders to office.

McCullough’s campaign “is about making sure everyone has a voice and making sure Arlington County truly works for all working families, not just the wealthy,” said Joe Dinkin, a spokesman for the party.

Dinkin praised McCullough’s “bold and transformative vision for change.”

McCullough, an attorney and first-time candidate, is on the ballot with Democrat Erik Gutshall and independent Audrey Clement. The winner on Nov. 7 will succeed Jay Fisette, who has served in office for 20 years and did not seek a sixth term.

McCullough is a same-old same old Democrat, like every other Democrats calling themselves "Progressive" who's run for office in Arlington over the past 40 years.

He and the other so-called Progressive, Erik Gutshall, are using the political process to enrich themselves.....but what else in new in Arlington Democratic politics?
