O’Leary Endorses Deputy for Treasurer in 2015

Chief Deputy Treasurer Carla de la Pava(Updated on 7/7/2014) Arlington County Treasurer Frank O’Leary will not run for reelection next year and is endorsing his chief deputy to succeed him, ARLnow.com has confirmed.

Chief Deputy Treasurer Carla de la Pava, a Democrat, has launched a campaign website in which she lists endorsements from a number of prominent local Democratic officials, including O’Leary, Del. Patrick Hope, Commonwealth’s Attorney Theo Stamos and School Board member Noah Simon.

“After six years of excellent service to the Arlington County Treasurer’s Office and Arlington County citizens, Carla de la Pava is well prepared and highly qualified to be Arlington County Treasurer,” O’Leary is quoted as saying. “Experience does count!”

De la Pava can be expected “to continue the firm-but-fair collection practices that have seen the county’s tax-delinqency [sic] rate reach an all-time low,” according to the Sun Gazette, which covered a presentation by de la Pava to the South Arlington Kiwanis Club last month.

O’Leary — who was first elected treasurer in 1983, according to his county biography — was at a conference in Wise County, Va. and not available for comment. He later revealed that he plans to submit his resignation on Monday, July 7.
