On September 6, Mayor Bill Euille announced he will run as a write-in campaign for Mayor of Alexandria. Euille lost a June 9th primary to Vice Mayor Allison Silberberg.
Can Euille win? If anyone can pull off the tough challenge of an expensive write-in campaign, it’s a candidate with high name recognition who has been around for years such as Euille.
Of course there is already talk that “there must be party unity” now that Euille is mounting a primary campaign. When you hear more about “unity” than how good a candidate is, you know there is something wrong with the situation. Obbviously Euille is far more qualified than Silberberg to be Mayor after all of his years of experience. We’ll find out soon enough whether the voters want for the future of Alexandria.
