Arlington's FY 11 Budget - From Need to Greed

The Arlington County Board of Plutocrats outdid itself today, County Board's budget priorities focused on "wants not needs" yet again. New all-weather athletic fields constructed in every Arlington neighborhood will be the County Board's top budget priority during Fiscal Year 2011.

How about the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust wanting 100 more acres for open space in Arlington? Where's that going to come from? Demolishing more affordable housing?
