This comment posted at Boneta Bill Shall Return is worthy of being highlighted.
Anger and resentment of citizens in Fauquier County has been brewing for a long time. The cronyism, corrupt practices and outright lawbreaking by county officials was ignored by the local media until Fauquier Free Citizen came along.
County officials will try to place blame on FFC for reporting. However, their refusal to address their own wrongdoing will simply increase anger among county residents. And, according to this comment, the wrongdoing runs deep, a few apologists (cronies?) for the county’s bad behavior notwithstanding.
Disgusted Fauquier Citizen
This bill would have never been drafted if the county officials and ‘electeds’ were not corrupt and did not pander to the PEC (yep, that’s that environmental group who denies any environmental impact from sludge spreading … Georgia Herbert and Chris Miller…because their members partake or who disregard the use of windmills as an alternative energy source because the dang things will wreck their VIEW SHED).
The GA was called on to assist farmers with protecting their fundamental right to grow agricultural products and sell their products without interference from Holder Trumbo, Peter Schwartz, Lee Sherbeyn, (how’s that little non-agricultural massage business working out for you Lee on your farm?), and that pea-brain Kim Johnson.
If there were not a bunch of [*##%@] running this county, then there would have never been a need for the Boneta Bill. So clue in, “Real Patriot.” Equitable representation stops at the PEC front door.
But hey FFC, don’t stop, press on. There are hundreds of issues with this county: citizens access to a line-item budget, property tax overpayments by citizens ( D’Urso’s response ” we can make up any number we want. We are Fauquier and the Commonwealth says so na, na, na … as he sticks his tongue out). Let’s discuss the 100′s of thousands of dollars the former assistant county administrator slid to his pet projects through the back door … and how long did he remain on the county payroll until his butt was kicked to the curb? What about the questionable HUD and VDH misappropriations by Fauquier Housing Corporation now Foothills last year. Doesn’t Max Tufts serve as President of that board? Name ring a bell? Max Tufts/ BZA.
There is plenty of work to do FFC. Plenty. This is just one battle, the war is not won.
