Cynthia Neff to Challenge Del. Rob Bell

This is a bit late, but I just got the press release (sorry no link). Last week, Cynthia Neff was nominated by the Albemarle Democratic Committee to challenge Del. Rob Bell (R-58). Neff's background is business and non-profit heavy:
Cynthia Neff spent over 25 years in the private sector, running a small business and working her way up the ladder at IBM. Since moving to Albemarle County, she has been active in the non-profit community, serving as the Chair of the AIDS Services Group Board of Directors, working at Legal Aid Justice Center, serving as a Court Appointed Special Advocate working with abused children, as well as several other charitable organizations.
Saith Neff on her job-focus:
“There are a lot of things that we say are priorities, but it doesn’t do any good to just talk about priorities; we need to get back to business,” Cynthia said. “I know how to make tough business decisions, and I’ve spent my whole life getting paid for performance.”
While Bell is a well-entrenched incumbent, his district voted comfortably for Perriello, Warner, and Obama. The 58th district covers Greene County and parts of Albemarle, Fluvanna, and Orange Counties.
