I’ve been a native Fairfax County resident for more than fifty-nine years and I’ve lived in Sully District since 1987.
Just like other county residents, I have felt the pain caused by the County Board of Supervisors’ decisions to raise taxes year after year. The board seems to think that every resident’s checkbook is open for them to take our money. After 8 years of our current Sully District Supervisor’s decisions, a change is needed and it’s time for that to change now!
I am not a politician. I am a concerned citizen just like you, a Sully resident who is willing and able to raise your concerns to the county board and be your advocate.
In 2004, when I went through a divorce, that year I found God. Through His Church I was able to pull through a very hard time. I got involved in the Church and have lead Men’s Bible Studies and Student Bible Studies. I found that there is power in prayer, and I will be praying during this whole campaign, for everyone involved and for my opponent. God the Creator created us with two ears, and I plan on using them every day to hear and understand your concerns. That is something I have heard my opponent does not do very well.
As a faithful man, husband, father and active volunteer leader, I know that many Sully residents do not believe that their concerns are being heard and addressed by our board. That’s why I look forward to hearing your stories and learning your opinions about important issues of this County.
WHY I'm RUNNING
I was born and raised in McLean and moved to Centreville in 1987, so I have seen the tremendous growth that has occurred in the neighborhoods, homes, and apartments in our district. These dramatic changes have taken place without an apparent vision or plan which would promote and protect our community.
The never-ending construction on I-66 and other major thoroughfares are aggravating. Additionally, I know there has been field shortages for youth sports programs and schools became too small, so kids have classrooms in trailers. Was there ever a vision to address the need for expansion of the infrastructure, schools and amenities in the district? Don’t you agree that the board of supervisors should anticipate increased demand for our recreational, cultural offerings, increased traffic and more children in our schools. There should be better planning for infrastructure and facilities, better planning to accommodate new families, better planning for recreational needs for our kids and more options for our kids who want to pursue theatre, arts, or gymnastics.
Instead of planning and saving for needed changes, our board just continues to ask for bonds to pay for capital improvements and other projects. Then, in order to pay for these added costs plus the construction, they have to raise our taxes even higher!
This won’t stop until people are elected to the board who can find ways to cut back on non-essential spending and other items that do not make sense—such as giving themselves pay raises of 30%!
In addition to poor planning and increasing the tax burden on citizens, the board is not doing enough to support our teachers, fire and rescue personnel, or police. Click the “Issues” tab for more information about my solutions on these issues.
Change has to start now!
Vote for me, and I will do everything possible to bring responsibility, joy, and a community spirit to the Sully district!
