Arlington County is holding a special election on Tuesday, April 8 to fill an open seat on the County Board. The winner of this election will need to run again in November. The Jamestown PTA does not endorse any specific candidate, but we encourage you to read the statements below by the four candidates to learn more about them and vote in the upcoming election. The Arlington County Board approves the vast majority of funding available for use by Arlington Public Schools (APS). Also, the county and schools work with each other in terms of physical plant, debt issuance, security, and human capital. Thus, the make-up of the County Board is a matter of importance to Arlingtonians with children in APS.
