County Board Ignores Civic Association, Ballston Non-Profits, Creates Ballston BID 'Slush Fund'

Hey, Yupette,

Check out today's County Board meeting. Agenda Item 32. The County Board created the Ballston Business Improvement District over the objections of the Bluemont Civic Association and NRECA and other non-profits associations. The County Board even violated it's own guidelines that required the approval of at least 50% of commercial companies inside the boundaries of a proposed business improvement district to form a BID. Why all the cheating? So the County Board can use the Ballston BID as a 'slush fund' for various entertainment and recreation projects in Ballston. Just like they did in Rosslyn. Remember the Artisphere?

Stay tuned for the opening of Artisphere II on the present Arlington Funeral Home site in 2016.

Did you see how the Cherrydale civic association went after the County Board?

Only people the County Board listens to are developers and their lawyers.

Did you hear the exasperated woman who asked that library cuts be restored? Don't hold your breath. Too many grass plying fields in Arlington in need of a complete makeover.

Hi, great blog. I happened to meet one of Jay Fisette's Bucknell classmates at a Christmas party. Did you know that Jay's parents are Bush Republicans?

Time Hynes and Tejada were voted off the County Board. County Board was told that the Bluemont Civic Association was not informed let alone discussed the Ballston BID. The County Board are five total pols who constantly play games, like you-know-who in the White House. When the civic associations decide something in the County Board's favor they are lavish in their praise of the civic associations. When the civic associations oppose something the County Board is for, the County Board just ignores it.

Fisette enumerated the uses of Ballston BID taxes for entertainment and recreation activities, but was careful to omit mentioning live theater.

County Board rules by contempt for the governed.

Jay Fisette does not speak for me and many other gay, lesbian, bisexual etc., Arlingtonians. For Jay and others like him being gay is like a religion and they want the rest of us to share their religious experiences. I don't care to share their belief system (abbreviated B.S.) and its various attributes and activities.

How about a thread about the terrible way the County Board and County Government treat the taxicab owners, operators, taxi companies, and the entire taxi industry?

Bet a doughnut the people who ran the Ballston Partnership are in for a big surprise when they are replaced by Fisette's and Hynes's Ballston Party Zone BID Board of Directors.

The NRECA guy who spoke against the Ballston BID at the County Board meeting obviously knows what Gourmet Jay has planned for Ballston.

Jay would be pushing for a BID in Shirlington except Shirlington's already a live theater party zone.

I am a life-long female bisexual and I DESPISE Jay Fisette and the Gay Mafia that's seeking to control Arlington and impose their f-up "values" on everyone.

Jay was born in 1956. He's not technically a Yuppie. He's a Partier like Mary Hynes.

Best estimates I can come with for their ages are as follows:

Mary Hynes - 56

Barbara Favola - 55

Jay Fisette 54

Chris Zinnerman 51

Walter Tejada - 47

So a majority of the County Board are Partiers, not Yuppies.

Explains why Fisette, Favola, and Hynes are creating more Party Zones.

Jay Fisette partied in SF before AIDS. Mary Hynes is a life-long Partier. Barbara Favola is the Chief Lobbyist for a Party School.
