Evan Bernick '11 Running for Arlington (VA) County Board
The Libertarian Party may be on the verge of fielding its first candidate for County Board in more than 20 years.
Evan Bernick, a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School who has lived in Arlington since 2011, plans to seek the seat being vacated by Democratic board member Chris Zimmerman.
“I’ve grown to love it here – this is my home,” Bernick said of the county. “It’s a great place to live and work, and it has a bright future ahead of it. The only thing that can hold us back is the poor governance we have seen recently.”
Bernick flayed the current all-Democratic County Board, criticizing its members for “jaw-droppingly reckless expenditures . . . that have been mocked in the national press.”
