First off, thanks to Mark Kelly for his service to the Arlington County Republican Committee. Mark was part of the team that was responsible for the great successes in 2009.

Popular Arlington-Falls Church Young Republican Chris Berg has announced his candidacy for ACRC Chairman. In his statement, he said,

We had a very successful election season this past fall with the statewide victories of Bob McDonnell, Bill Bolling, and Ken Cuccinelli. Our percentages in Arlington improved. Though we have built a stronger base for our candidates now is not the time to sit back. There is still important work to be done.

I am committed to continuing to strengthen and grow the Arlington County Republican Committee. Which is why I’m writing you today to announce my candidacy to be the next ACRC Chairman….

I think we have the numbers to be a competitive party in Arlington. It’s all about getting people excited for it. I’ll be doing a question and answer with Chris, so stay tuned for that.
