Is Chris Zimmer-ham the "Boss Hogg" of Arlington?

Yes. Notice how hostile Zimmer-ham is to ordinary citizens who ask questions about County government and how obsequious he is to everyone from outside Arlington who is out to sell the County some snake oil program or award.

No. Boss Hogg had to run the Hazzard County Sheriff's Department. ZimPig sleeps until noon and runs his mouth for the next 12 hours about his pet projects and theories of government.

True. Boss Hogg Zimmerman and his sidekick Chief Roscoe Scott routinely use the Arlington Police Department to harasss and intimidate residents who don't go along with the program.

Is Barbara or Mary Daisy????

At least Boss Hogg is employed running his various Hazzard County businesses, unlike the three male County Board members.

Who has Boss Hogg Zimmerman picked to be on the committees that will rubber stamp Zimmy's massive Pike gentrifiction?

The street lighting in my Westover neighborhood is really really bad. So want does Boss Hogg Zimmerman propose to do about it? Build a $120 million tourist trolley on Columbia Pike.

Mary is Daisy Duke...Barbara is LuLu Hogg.

Does anyone know what the last agenda item at the November 18th County Board meeting was all about?

Cooter said...

Don't complain about street lighting in your neighborhood or you will be put on Boss Zimmy's "troublemaker" list and Chief Roscoe Scott will send plainclothes "drug enforcement" (another Arlington oxymoron) to break into your home and open all the closet doors, unplug appliances and so on.

Last agenda item was about some litigation between a Shirlington developer and the County.

All Zimmerman and the County Board care about are vanity projects and maintaining the status quo. Isn't that what the bipartisan Arlington Machine is all about? Zimmerman is way to the right of Obama, he and his ward heelers arrived in Arlington during the Reagan 80's. That's what the Zimmycrats know and they are comfortable with - Reagan Yuppieism.

Yupette, can we have a thread about the reported 2,000 kids attending Arlington's schools who are not Arlington residents?

This county is out-of-control! Welfare for everyone except the middle class homeowners.

Wakefield parent said...

Boss Hogg Zimmerman is so out of control that he doesn't care if non-voter non-residents get an expensive K-12 education at taxpayers' expensse.

Do the math...next year the budget will be over a billion dollars. School board will get 49 percent of that to educate 19,000 kids, 2,000 of whom are not County residents and are attending Arlington schools illegally.

Yes Yupette, we have hispanic residents of Fairfax County who come to Arlington for its better ESL programs. Also because Arlington is much less willing to check to see if students are illegals, they come here from Fairfax and Prince William Counties.

Yupette, 490 million dollars divided by 19,000 is almost 25,800 per student. Multiply that by 2,000 and it's about $51.6 million.

Zimmerman and the other Arlington pols and community leaders are idiotic to allow non-residents to enroll their kids in Arlington schools. Are these non-resident parents also illegally voting in Arlington elections, using some Arlington mailing address?

k-12 teacher said...

This is how Boss Hogg Zimmerman buys Latino votes and the votes of county and school employees who have moved to PW and Fairfax County. Yes, these same people vote in Arlington elections.

Parents are afraid to complain. Your kid will suffer the consequences if you do. Zimmerman and a dozen of his Repub and Dem pals should be in prison for the rip offs they have known about and tolerated for the past decade.

Zimmerman and the other County Board members are classic Reagan Yuppies (take from the needy and give to the greedy) who call themselves "Democrats."

Westie 22205, the cost of the trolley is 175 million plus 85 million for streetscape improvements. We can buy this but we can't get the HVAC at Wakefield to work

Last agenda item was settlement of litigation between Arlington County and Street Realty over construction of parking facilities in Shirlington. The County gave Street Realty $1 million in a "legal settlement."
