Progressive. Principled. Inclusive.
Christian has spent substantial periods of his career working to improve our community. He had the privilege of serving as executive director of The Reading Connection, promoting literacy development for children facing housing insecurity. He also led the Bonder and Amanda Johnson Community Development Corporation, which provided essential community services and jump-started a moderate-income housing development in the Nauck neighborhood.

Equally rewarding have been the many opportunities that Christian has had to serve our Arlington community as a volunteer, which have included serving on the boards of directors of the Arlington Free Clinic, A-SPAN, Leadership Arlington, and Arlington Independent Media, and serving on County Board advisory commissions (Tenant-Landlord, chairman; Planning, member).

Professionally, Christian is a senior leader at the Economic Policy Institute, a think tank that promotes economic policies that foster broadly shared prosperity. Christian has lived in Arlington for over twenty years, and he and his wife, Rachael, are proud parents to Jordan, who is currently in Arlington Public Schools, and Mila, who will soon be attending APS. Christian, Rachael, Jordan, and Mila live in the Columbia Forest neighborhood.
