U.S. Rep. Donald S. Beyer, Jr., who represents the 8th district of Northern Virginia that includes the City of Falls Church, has chosen former Arlington School Board member Noah Simon as his District Office Director. Simon was elected as an Arlington School Board member in 2012 and served only two years before resigning to focus on his children after the passing of his wife, Kedron, who’d battled intestinal cancer for 15 months. Simon will be taking over for Susie Warner, who was district director for former Rep. Jim Moran (and then for Beyer) since 1990. Warner was due to retire June 1.
“We really looked hard for someone who was deeply embedded in the community,” said Beyer in a statement. “It’s tough to bring in someone who doesn’t know too much about the community, so finding Noah was like a godsend.”
