POTOMAC RIVERKEEPER NETWORK STATEMENT
ON ALEXANDRIA MAYORAL RACE

Washington, D.C.May 8  –

Potomac Riverkeeper Network learned today that Allison Silberberg’s campaign to be the next Mayor of Alexandria recently distributed a flyer that included an apparent endorsement by Dean Naujoks, the Potomac Riverkeeper and a member of our staff.  Potomac Riverkeeper Network is a nonprofit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization, and we do not endorse candidates for public office in any election, no matter their environmental record.  We apologize for any confusion the statement attributed to Dean may have created for the public and this election.  Potomac Riverkeeper is neutral and does not endorse Alison Silberberg’s candidacy for Mayor of Alexandria. Potomac Riverkeeper Network supports clean water, not individual candidates.

Nancy Stoner, President
Potomac Riverkeeper Network
