Sixth Consecutive Year for a Green Candidate in Arlington County


Arlington, Va.: The Arlington Green Party endorsed Audrey Clement, a seven year resident of Arlington County and long time community activist, as its nominee for Arlington County Board at a meeting on May 4, said Arlington Greens chairman John Reeder today. There are two positions open on the Board this year.

"With her experience in environment, transportation planning and community affairs, Dr. Clement, who has qualified for the ballot, will provide an alternative and rational voice on County Board." Reeder said. This is the sixth consecutive year an Arlington Green has run for County Board.

Clement runs on a platform of fiscal, social, and environmental responsibility. She proposes ending taxpayer support for the Artisphere and other vanity projects; improving the recycling rate in apartment and commercial buildings; curtailing the retail use of single-use plastic bags and Styrofoam containers; adding solar and other renewable energy systems to public buildings; preserving market-rate affordable housing; and reducing the volume of single-occupant vehicles on Arlington's streets and roads.

Audrey played a key role in the Arlington Green Party's recent initiatives to preserve affordable housing and prevent the widening of I-66. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and holds a doctorate in Political Science from Temple University. She served as a Congressional Fellow during the 100th Congress and is currently employed as an information technology professional.
