    ” The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will host the county’s delegation to the General Assembly for a roundtable work session and discussion of the upcoming 2018 General Assembly session.”

    I’m not trying to be funny or a smart a$$, but why doesn’t this have to be a scheduled event? It’s concerning that the BOS and delegation isn’t in constant contact. Maybe I’m reading into it to much.

      It’s classic bad governance, even when it occurs in industry – as it does. In industry this sort of stovepiping can kill you. In government it goes on and on a usually asks for more and more resources to patch over the dysfunctional results.

      • OneReally

        So true. Main reason I got out of the government.

        As you said it happens in the commercial section too, but eventually a SVP will find it and there goes the ax. 🙂

        Try working at the IC staff…you will find 17+ such organizations. And, rarely do they ever agree on what’s what despite their hundreds of billions of tax dollars spent (wasted?) annually.

        • Mike M

          I’ve seen it and it depresses me.

  • Bah

    “Where Do Annual Assessment Fees for Reston Association Go?”

    Into the toilet known as “the Tetra purchase”. Thanks, Cate Fulkerson and the rest of the incompetents in RA administration!

  • Greg

    Far, FAR too much of them go to pay staff salaries, especially those of Fulkerson, Butler, and Anna Verone:

    Name, Salary, other cash compensation:

    CATHERINE FULKERSON 195,668 + 30,874
    ROBERT WOOD 156,707 + 1,243
    LAWRENCE BUTLER 133,705 + 29,685
    ANNA VARONE 113,752 + 1,638

    And lawyers. 688,462 just for 2016 alone!
