Seen & Heard: Former Mayor Bill Euille Quietly Files Papers for 2018

Bill Euille

The path to elected office in politics used to begin often with a fancy public event where the candidate gave a full-throated declaration of his or her candidacy for office amid balloons, confetti and more.

However, to run for office in Virginia, each candidate must first file a Statement of Organization with the local registrar’s office and the State Board of Elections. This document creates a campaign committee (such as Obama for America or Hillary for America). This is one of a number of forms to be filed prior to running. The filing allows the candidate to be able to raise funds for a run for office.

In former Mayor Bill Euille’s case, he has recently filed an amended Statement of Organization for the ‘Friends of Bill Euille’ committee for the 2018 election cycle in Alexandria, Virginia (See below). This would mean a rematch of the 2015 race when Mayor Euille lost to current Alexandria Mayor Allison Silberberg.

Does this mean he’s officially running in 2018? No. But, Bill has taken one of the first steps needed to do so.

The ‘Friends of Bill Euille’ has $5,600 cash on hand as of June 30, 2016 according to campaign disclosures.
