In announcing his candidacy to seek election to the Falls Church City Council this year, former Councilman Dan Sze issued the following statement:
“I’m running for City of Falls Church Council in the November 2013 Elections. I am running because I am passionate about preserving, enhancing and celebrating what’s special about the City of Falls Church.
“I am convinced it is the people that make our City special. I want to be of service to all whom live here; those who have children in our top-notch schools and those folks like me who don’t have children in the schools but take pride in our school’s achievements. I want to make sure that if you want to stay in our City you can do so. This was the decision Elisabeth and I made after my retirement from full-time employment last year.
“My life’s work has been to ensure environmental stewardship while advancing development – both kinds of green can exist comfortably. I have worked over the past decade in clean energy technologies. I have also served the City of Falls Church as the Vice-Chair of our Economic Development Authority, City Council (2006-2010) and currently am on the Board of Zoning Appeals. In the coming months, let’s talk about how, together, we can: preserve and enhance our world-class school system; achieve environmentally-sustainable economic development; have fair and reasonable taxes; and celebrate our quality of life. I look forward to having this conversation with you between now and this November.”
