New County Manager was Savannah's "Mr. Gentrification"

Hi Yupette,

Arlington's new County Manager, Michael Brown, is a good ol UVA boy who massively gentrified Savannah while he was County Manager there. Check out Savannah's activist blogs.

He took his direction from Tim Kaine 20 years ago when Tim started gentrifying Richmond.

Mike Brown is worse than Fisette, if that is possible. Google "Creative Coast."

Mike Brown did in Savannah what Jim Moran, Kerry Donley, and Bill Euille did in Alexandria.

BTW, Tim kaine's Richmond law firm is attempting to totally gentrify Richmond. Latest I heard Tim has an important policy-making position at National Democratic Party Headquarters. Something like "Chairman of the Democratic National Committee".

Gentrification? We are looking at a 10% combined real estate tax/fee and homeowners' condo fee increase this year. The Yupublicrats support both high taxation and gentrification as methods of ridding Arlington of the middle class.

Mike Brown was THE major force in ridding Savannah of "undesiraebles" meaning working class and middle class residents.

Latest Yuppie absurdity - Alexandria Police were called to Trader Joes because a woman complained that a male shopper was looking at her breasts.

Yes, nothing is going to change and things will be worse.

I pay $300 a month in condo fees for a condo that's assessed at $460,000.

So what that means is the cost of my housing (excluding gas and electric utilities) will go up by at least 10% this year and probably the same next year.

The middle class (meaning any household with an income of less than $100,000 / year) is being gentrified out.

So what will replace "The Urban Village"? The Creative Village?

How about "World Class Creativity"?

Latest statement from Mike "Creative Coast" Brown is: "Arlington is a wonderful world class community with great leadership including the Arlington County Board and staff. So looks like Arlington's new motto will be "World Class Creativity".

So when do the f'ing pot holes get filled on my street?

Looks as though the County Board will increase real estate taxes by about 6.5%, thanks to the Republicrat Civic Federation. Another 6% or 7% increase in FY 2012.
