    Campaign season for the tax-and-spend must be underway. Will there be a conservative among the speakers?

    Apparently Supvr. Hudgins doesn’t have the guts or knowledge about her own district after more than a decade in office to come and stand in front of her constituents without a mob of partisans standing behind her and quite likely speaking up for her. At this point, she and most of her Democratic board mates and appointees are in deep trouble because they keep running the County budget into the ground while cutting important programs–such as schools and libraries, but not (of course) police.

    Heck, she is even calling in Jumpin’ Gerry Connolly who started the County and its homeowners down the budget pathway to oblivion by underfunding county pensions, telling toll road users to take on Metrorail debt, agreeing to pay more of WMATA’s debt and operating costs even though Fairfax runs its own bus service, making sure the homeless have a home (at about $10K of your tax dollars for each of the roughly 1,000 homeless people in the county) while increasing taxes on those who own homes, etc., etc., etc.

    If you want to see who puts the FUN in County dysFUNction, be at Frying Pan Park Saturday morning! You will not get a single answer that makes sense or that will lead this group of irresponsible people to change the way they govern our county (including Gerry, who still believes he runs the place).

    I wouldn’t recommend that anyone attending bring their wallet or checkbook.
