Arlington, VA — Today, former Arlington County Treasurer Frank O’Leary endorsed Andrew Schneider in his bid for the Democratic nomination to the County Board.
“After more than 30 years in Arlington County government, I understand what our community needs to move forward together, and that includes people in leadership with strong passion, enthusiasm, and work ethic. I see all of those qualities in Andrew Schneider. During my tenure I had the honor to serve alongside County Board members like Ellen Bozman, Mary Margaret Whipple, John Milliken, and Paul Ferguson; they were leaders who created and implemented a vision for our Community. In Andrew, I see someone with many of the same leadership qualities- an ability to listen, work collaboratively, and do great things for Arlington. I trust that he will work tirelessly to keep our financial house in order and collaborate with others to find the best solutions to our community’s most pressing needs. Andrew’s emphasis on improving the county’s customer service is essential to the economic development of our community. I share Andrew’s goal of making it easier to live, work and do business here in Arlington” said O’Leary.
“I literally grew up watching Frank as a model of public service. As a lifelong Arlingtonian, I can tell you Frank sets the bar very high for what we expect from our elected officials. I am deeply honored to have earned Frank’s support and I aspire to do as good of a job as he did representing the people of Arlington” said Schneider.
Andrew Schneider, 40, is seeking the Democratic nomination for one of two open seats on the Arlington County Board, in the June 9th primary. A lifelong Arlingtonian, Andrew is a graduate of Arlington public schools, the College of William & Mary, and earned his MBA from the University of Maryland. He works for the College of William & Mary working to engage the 20,000+ alumni who live in the Washington area. He also currently serves as the President of the Yorktown Civic Association and Vice Chair of Community Residences. He lives in the Yorktown neighborhood with his wife, Susan, and their children, Alan and Elizabeth.
