One year later- Still no apology from Fauquier County over Boneta abuse

Martha-BonetaMartha Boneta was cited last year by Fauquier County for selling farm products and having a birthday party for eight 10-year-old girls.  Last week Fauquier County considered a revised farms sales ordinance with spirited debate about whether it is too little to protect small family farmers such as Martha.

The situation in Fauquier County has highlighted flaws in how Virginia has delegated plenty of powers to counties, but has instituted too few controls on those powers to prevent abuse of property and other rights.

Under the current regime of county authority, citizens are vulnerable to the abuse, corruption and even graft of any form of government not subject to consequences for bad acts and actors.  The Boneta fiasco proves this.

    Perhaps their willingness to apologize went out the window when they got sued for a couple of million dollars. Just a guess.

      Glad you agree that the clowns are wrong and should apologize. But you are wrong as well because they owe an apology toALL the citizens of Fauquier for what they did! It is a disgrace and everyone in the entire state knows that Fauquier is corrupt and what this county has done to wineries and this farmer is pure corruption.

      Spineless. The political future of these sitting stooges is over.

    They won’t apologize until they have have done everything possible to have driven the farmer off the land and drained all of her savings.

    Pathetic cowards. They need to GROW some and apologize. Until they do, they have lost all credibility.
