To the editor:

I write to publicize support for Amy Jackson for mayor and James Lewis and Charlotte Scherer for City Council. Having weighed the plentiful available information, these three candidates are the only ones who have voiced their opposition to the Potomac Yard arena development, the most important issue facing Alexandrians as we cast our votes in the June 18 primary.

If I am misinformed about the position of incumbent Council members and others running, I invite them to vigorously memorialize their “no” to the arena in this space and on their campaign websites. Despite the development’s current status in the Virginia General Assembly, it is still vitally important that our mayoral and Council candidates fully state their position before May 3, the first day of early voting.
