He also has a Master's of Public Administration.[2] Modglin works as a principle officer at Impact International, a policy and communications consulting firm. Before his consulting work, he co-founded the National Youth Crime Prevention Conference. He also worked on staff for then-U.S. Representative Leonor Sullivan of Missouri.

He served for 20 months in Vietnam and was awarded two Bronze Stars for his service.[3]


Campaign themes


Modglin’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:[4]

  • Community Engagement

Excerpt: "Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, a Virginian, observed that “Information is the currency of democracy.” That currency is often in short supply today. Too many people know too little about what governments are doing for them, to them, or in their names. Too many are unaware of changes in civic structures; too few engage in making the changes they want and need. I pledge to inform constituents as often as possible and to meet at least annually with my constituents in each of the 17 precincts of this 49th Legislative District."

  • Education

Excerpt: " Children need to be equipped to develop their talents to the utmost and find careers that make the best use of their talents for both themselves and their communities. We need to recognize that adults may need continuing education to update skills, equip themselves to deal with emerging technologies, and enable them to adapt to new career opportunities. We must invest in strategies to help children who are economically disadvantaged and assist children who are physically and/or mentally challenged."

  • Public Safety

Excerpt: "Experience has shown that comprehensive approaches using community policing, problem-solving, and community engagement, as well as involving multiple agencies of the government can dramatically reduce crime. Similarly, when law enforcement and other community-focused agencies work with such private sector organizations as neighborhood associations, condominium and rental community associations, churches, and businesses can result in powerful partnerships to prevent and reduce crime and address community challenges that may be linked with crime."

  • Transportation

Excerpt: "Increased financial support for mass transit alternatives, including study of and progress as merited on Metrorail service between East Falls Church and Pentagon City with potential stations at the Seven Corners Area and Skyline, will boost the economic future of the Arlington-Seven Corners Area and reduce congestion. But addressing transportation issues also means upgrading major highways and improving traffic circulation on various local and regional secondary roads, as well as enhancing bus transportation throughout the region."

  • Employment

Excerpt: "In urban and suburban areas, there is no question that the current minimum wage is too low, especially if the wage earner has a family. It is arguable that the current minimum wage is too low in many less-populated areas as well. A ten-dollar per hour minimum wage should be the base requirement, with exceptions for temporary, agricultural and teen employment."
