July Briskman, 51, ran against Suzanne M. Volpe, a Republican, represents the algonkian Indian district on the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors.

Unofficial returns showed Briskman, with 52 percent of the vote after 99 percent of votes have been reported, according to the Associated Press.


The Republicans dominate the board in a different blue county, which has largely voted for democratic candidates in state and Federal elections. In 2016, Hillary Clinton, the County of 17 percent won points.

“We have worked hard to flip his seat and rush, an eight year incumbent,” Briskman, said in a statement. “I look forward to working with the new Board to make better decisions on schools, smart development, and gun-sense questions.”

Briskman launched their campaign for office after she was fired from a government contracting company for violations of the “code-of-conduct policy.” She had revealed to her bosses at the Virginia-based Akima LLC, that she was the woman in the column, and in a viral photo on social media who is flipping off President Trump was in the car.
