Arlington County Democrats who want to join the half-dozen who have already announced their intention to run for the County Board seat being vacated by state Sen.-elect Barbara Favola have until Jan. 23 to declare themselves.

The county’s Democratic caucus will be held the evening of Feb. 2 at the NRECA office, 4301 Wilson Blvd, and on Feb. 4 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Kenmore Middle School, 200 S. Carlin Springs Rd.

So far, Melissa Bondi, Peter Fallon, Libby Garvey, Kim Klingler, Elmer Lowe, and Terron Sims have announced they will run for the seat.

The date of the special election will be set by the Circuit Court next month and is likely to be in April or May.

A Green Party candidate, Audrey Clement, has also said she will run in the general election.
