Lynda Smith (D-Providence) has announced she will not run for re-election to the Fairfax Board of Supervisors. So far one Democrat has declared her candidacy, Erika Yalowitz. School board member Dalia Palchik may also be running for the seat and perhaps Vienna Town Council member Edythe Kelleher, who has a legal address in Vienna but she and her husband bought a home in Fairfax in 2014. That would make her eligible to run in Providence district because that’s where she actually lives.
Rumors abound that Chairman of the Fairfax Board of Supervisors, Sharon Bulova, will announce shortly that she will not run for re-election. She has been on the board since 1999 and Chairman since 2009. Another rumor says Supervisor Kathy Hudgins (D-Hunter Mill) may also decline to run again. She has been on the board since 1999. At age of 74, she may be ready to retire.
