Let’s face it: our current Arlington County Board is slow, unresponsive, and stuck. They rubber-stamp each other’s bad ideas. They spend big on ‘band-aids’ and luxury aesthetics instead of solving root issues with public safety, housing affordability, and declining civic engagement. Our one-party rule makes our government complacent without any drive for solving problems.
It’s time for a government that reflects new ideas and real solutions. It’s time for a County Board with an independent voice. Adam Theo – a budget hawk with progressive values – is challenging the County Board’s status quo. If you agree that Arlington deserves better on November 8th, then follow the campaign!
On the Issues
About the Candidate
I’m a straight-to-the-point, common sense, policy wonk kind of person.
As Vice-President of the Ballston-Virginia Square Civic Association, a voting delegate to the Civic Federation, and co-founder of the grassroots housing advocacy group YIMBYs of Northern Virginia, my heart and soul are in Arlington’s future prosperity.
I am a veteran of the Air Force Reserves as a civil engineer with a deployment to Afghanistan.
I’ve lived both sides of law enforcement: not only as a communications consultant working alongside police and other first responders for almost a decade, but also incarcerated in county jail back down in Florida after some troubled teenage years.
Before moving to Arlington 10 years ago, I had been homeless – twice! – including during DC’s Snowmageddon winter 13 years ago.
It’s these experiences – unlike any other County Board member – that have made me into the strong-willed and free-thinking advocate that can serve all Arlingtonians.
C’mon, I know you’re curious.
You may have seen this chart in your door, at a farmer’s market, or floating around social media. Here are the explanations behind the colorful icons on where me and the other candidates for Arlington County Board stand on the big issues of this year:
am honored to have the support of Mr. Dave Schutz because of my strong advocacy for local governance and election reform. I am always struck by his vast knowledge.
I love cycling and advocate for better bike lanes and trails. Join in on the #VoteTheoChalkArt activities!
A campaign supporter here in Arlington has had enough of the high property taxes and wasteful spending so wrote into the Sun Gazette with his concerns.
I am truly honored to have the support and powerful endorsement of Grace White, the former Campaigns Director of the Arlington Young Democrats.
Can we build more affordable housing, without sacrificing environmental safety? Do these two issues need to conflict?
