Arlington Greens Elect Steve Davis as Their New Chairman
Arlington Greens at their February 12th meeting at the Clarendon Silver Diner elected Steve Davis, a longtime Arlington resident and an environmental activist, as their chairman for 2013. Davis was an aviation analyst for several decades with the U.S. Department of Transportation until his retirement in 2004, and is a graduate of McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland where he has served with several alumni groups. He was the Arlington Greens liaison with the Arlington Community Energy Taskforce during 2010-11. He also worked extensively on on the Greens green jobs initiative for homeless and unemployed people in Arlington during 2009-10 and has testified on the need for a year-round emergency shelter. Davis is married and lives in the Tara-Leeway Heights neighborhood, and previously in Fairlington Villages. He attends Fairlington United Methodist Church.
Former Arlington Greens chair John Reeder stepped down after three years, and now is the 2013 co-chairman of the Virginia Green Party. The Arlington Greens have fielded candidates for local office since 2006, most recently Audrey Clement for county board in 2012. Arlington Greens meet every first Wednesday of the month in the community room of the Ballston Fire House.
Audrey Clement was also re-elected as the treasurer of the Arlington Greens for 2013.
