Citizens First, a Blacksburg group that advocates for open and responsive government, endorsed Michael Sutphin for town council today:
Sutphin has demonstrated his firm understanding of Town issues during his service on the Long Range Planning Committee, and has been a strong advocate for collaborative governance, vibrant citizen democracy, and development of Blacksburg’s technology sector. He will serve as a bridge to a younger generation of Blacksburg residents.
The grassroots organization, which also endorsed incumbents John Bush and Leslie Hager-Smith, added:
We expect this team to work cooperatively to continue Blacksburg’s economic development as it preserves its neighborhoods, natural heritage, and quality of life.
Last week, the Virginia Partisans PAC endorsed Michael’s candidacy.
