The Arlington County Democratic Committee has set the date – Feb. 23 – for its third annual open house for potential political candidates.

The event will be held “virtually” this year due to the public-health situation, party chair Jill Caiazzo said.

The program is not simply designed for those planning to seek office in the coming year, but also for those who want to know the intricacies of doing so for potential future runs. Attendance is not a requirement of running for office.

Among speakers at the 2021 event will be former County Board and School Board member Mary Hynes and former School Board member Tannia Talento.

Additional details will be posted at

Arlington is a 2 company town (Feds and Amazon) that's been run by one-party government so long that change is impossible. Anyone who doesn't go along with the program is disregarded, disparaged, or both.

Wrong. It's our fraudulent practice of posting here under multiple aliases that is disparaged.


More of McCaffrey's perennial infatuation with one-party government and its candidates.

Where does it say that this training is restricted to verified Democrats?
