Extravagant County Board Spending to Cause an $80-$100 Million Budget Shortfall Next Year

According to the Arlington County Board's own Web site, the County Board is facing a $80 million to $100 million budget deficit next year, largely as the result of the County Board's extravagant spending on pet "vanity projects" and give-aways to pet special interests. A $100 million budget shortfall would translate into a 10% residential real estate tax increase next year.

Fisette could care less. He's out campaigning for gay marriage in DC. He should move there. We can't afford him on the Arlington County Board for for 4 more years.

Earth to Jay Fisette. When will my kid in Arlington be able to receive a H1N1 vaccination?

I tried to determine how much the Gala party for the cultural center that Fisette's friends threw at the Newseum a few weeks ago cost the taxpayers. Was told that it would take weeks before all the vendors submitted their invoices to the County.

Fisette used the taxpayer-paid gala for his campaign. His campaign asked for both volunteers and contributions at the event.

Same thing Fisette did at the Signature Gala a few months, only this time the taxpayers paid for the event. Jay belongs in D.C., working for Fenty.
