After failing to win the endorsement of the Citizens for a Better City (CBC) at its nominating convention Saturday, former Falls Church Vice Mayor and two-term Council member Lindy Hockenberry was actively adding signatures to her petition to run for the Council tonight at the George Mason High School boys basketball game.  

Hockenberry indicated to the News-Press that she’s moving forward to qualify her name for the May 4 municipal election ballot, and has until March 4 to secure the 125 signatures required. If she indeed runs, she said, it will be as an independent with no ties to any other candidate.

The other candidate who failed to get the CBC nod on Saturday, incumbent Councilman Dan Sze, told the News-Press he is undecided about running as an independent, himself.
