Paul Krizek, candidate for Delegate (VA-44) collected over 300 lbs of food for local charity United Community Ministries at a summer 'Thank You' party for campaign volunteers and supporters on Sunday at his home in Hollin Hills.
It was the hottest day of the year but that didn't stop a crowd of close to a 100 people from enjoying a backyard BBQ and bringing food to replenish the low summer food pantry stock at UCM while celebrating their hard work during the Krizek Democratic Primary victory.
After polls closed at 7 p.m. and results from precincts started to trickle in over cell phone, Mount Vernon High School Senior Catherine Ming grabbed a marker and began filling in turnout charts hung on the walls of a former clothing store that’s been the joint headquarters for the campaigns of Paul Krizek for 44th District delegate, Del. Scott Surovell (D-44) for 36th District senator and Dan Storck for Mount Vernon supervisor.
Paul Krizek has won the Democratic primary race for the 44th House of Delegates seat.
Two Democrats were vying for the 44th District seat (see map) held by Del. Scott Surovell, who announced his run for the state Senate seat of Sen. Toddy Puller; Surovell announced his run for the seat after Puller announced her retirement.
- Justin Brown:1,414
- Paul Krizek: 3,013
Paul Krizek launched his campaign for state delegate with the help of six local elected officials at a packed house with more than 50 supporters.
THREE NORTHERN Virginia seats in the General Assembly — one in the state Senate and two in the House of Delegates — are coming open in the fall elections, and Democrats are holding primary contests June 9 for all of them.
To the Editor:
I have known Paul Krizek, who is running to be our next delegate, for years. His record of leadership in the community has always impressed me. As a lifetime Mount Vernon resident, he understands the pressing need for a new system of multi-modal transit on the Route 1 corridor and he worked closely with Scott Surovell to gather nearly 500 petition signatures and recruit 180 people to attend the Northern Virginia Transportation Association (NVTA) hearing on widening a section of Route 1 as part of that project.
