Euille Kicks-Off General Election Campaign With Governor Mark Warner Outlining Message of Unity, Accomplishment and Opportunity.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Governor Mark Warner and Congressman Jim Moran will be in attendance to help highlight Bill Euille's record of accomplishment and lifelong commitment to Alexandria, as Euille kick-offs his historic bid to become Alexandria, Virginia's first African American Mayor on Saturday, September 28, 2002 at Mango Mike's, 4580 Duke Street in Alexandria, Virginia at 4:00 pm.

"Bill Euille has lived the American Dream," said Euille Campaign Chairman, Tim Lovain, "and it was education that allowed him to achieve so much."

Bill, a former resident of public housing, was born and raised in Alexandria and attended Alexandria public schools. After graduation from Quinnipiac College in 1972, Bill returned to live and work in Alexandria with a local construction company. In 1987, he formed his own construction services company, William D. Euille and Associates, where he serves as its President and Chief Executive Officer. His firm currently has over 55 employees and annual sales in excess of $15 million.

Bill served for 10 years on the Alexandria School Board. He has served on the Alexandria City Council since 1994 and served as Vice Mayor of Alexandria from 1997 to 2000. He donates all of his City Council salary to nonprofit organizations in Alexandria and the metropolitan region, especially those that address the needs of area young people and promote self-sufficiency for the less fortunate.

He serves on numerous boards and committees including the Washington Area Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) Board, the Inova Hospital Health System Board, and the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission.

"Voters have already responded to Euille's cross-over message of unity and providing youth with the same opportunity that he had, and now the momentum around Bill's candidacy is growing every day, said Euille Campaign Manager, Beth Temple, "as we head toward May, we'll continue to remind Alexandrians of Bill's record of accomplishment and his vision for making sure everyone has the opportunity to reach his or her fullest potential"

Not since the candidacy and election of Doug Wilder as Governor, has a political race faced such historic and national implication in the Commonwealth of Virginia, says Dr. George Dumas, Interim President & CEO of the Northern Virginia Urban League.
