ARLINGTON, VA – Delegate Mark Levine (VA-45) and Monique O’Grady Arlington County School Board Member have announced their support for Matt de Ferranti, the Democratic nominee for the Arlington County Board.
“Matt values transparency in government, something that I believe is essential for our democracy.

He continues, “Matt shares my commitment to transparency, and I know he will be committed to this openness on the Arlington County Board. I support his candidacy and will be working with him to win on November 6th.”
School Board Member Monique O’Grady joined Delegate Levine, “Matt is a former educator and has been a champion for educational equity for many years. He believes in investing in our schools so that our schools are equipped for our teachers and students. He is the right choice on education and I am proud to endorse him,” said Monique O’Grady.
“Having the support of Delegate Levine and School Board Member O’Grady is an honor because of the reasons each is supporting me. Delegate Levine’s commitment to transparency has been a key step forward in Richmond. I share his commitment to transparency,” said Matt de Ferranti. “Monique O’Grady’s commitment to educational equity is one of the key reasons I am running for the Board. I am honored to have both Mark and Monique’s support.”
Ahead of the November 6, 2018 General Election, Matt de Ferranti has earned the support of numerous former and current government officials including: Senator Adam Ebbin, Delegate Rip Sullivan, and Delegate Alfonso Lopez; County Board Chair Katie Cristol, School Board Members Reid Goldstein, Tannia Talento, and Barbara Kanninen; Clerk of the Court Paul Ferguson, Commissioner of Revenue Ingrid Morroy, and Sheriff Beth Arthur; and several organizational endorsements including Indivisible Arlington and the Arlington Action Group.
