Krupicka to Run for Englin's Seat in House of Delegates
Current Alexandria city council member Rob Krupicka announced his intentions Tuesday.
Alexandria City Councilman Rob Krupicka said Tuesday he will run for the 45th District seat in the House of Delegates that Del. David Englin is leaving at the end of his current term, the Washington Post reported.
On Monday night, Englin said he will not run for re-election. The four-time delegate admitted to an extramarital affair and said he needs to focus on his marriage and his family.
Krupicka, first elected to council in 2003, ran a failed bid for Virginia State Senate in 2011. He finished second to Adam Ebbin in a heated three-way Democratic primary that also included newly elected Arlington County Board member Libby Garvey.
Englin endorsed Krupicka in that race in June 2011. At the time, Englin said, "Rob Krupicka has the ideas and the energy to stand up to [Attorney General] Ken Cuccinelli's wars on climate science, health care reform, immigrants and gay and lesbian families. Rob has demonstrated over the years and during the course of this campaign a commitment to grassroots Democratic politics, empowering regular people to join together and make change."
Krupicka is also a member of the State Board of Education.
