In a move I was told about three weeks ago, Georgia Allen has filed to run for the Virginia Beach City Council in the At-Large race. Georgia has served as President of the Virginia Beach Chapter of the NAACP since 2000, temporarily stepping down to run for the House of Delegates three years ago.
While the At-Large field is Rosemary Wilson's to lose, I welcome my good friend Georgia to the fray. Five months of Georgia going around town attacking Rosemary's record should be the most fun we've had in Virginia Beach politics in a long time. I'm sure Allen will push issues that our incumbents have tried to ignore.
Also running At-Large are Lawrence Teator and Keith Strausbaugh.
