Audrey Clement to Run for County Board

Hello,

Virginia Green Party Co-Chair Audrey Clement has announced she is a candidate for Arlington County Board.

Dr. Clement, a resident of Westover, will run on a platform of fiscal, social, and environmental responsibility. Her platform includes ending taxpayer support for the Artisphere, an end to more vanity projects like the Artisphere, preserving market-rate affordable rental housing, curtailing the widespread use of single-use plastic bags and styrofoam containers, installing solar and other renewable energy on public buildings, and encouraging comprehensive traffic mitigation to reduce the volume of single-occupant vehicles on Arlington's streets and roads.

Audrey played a key role in the Arlington Green Party's recent initiatives to preserve affordable housing and prevent the widening of I-66.

Dr. Clement is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and earned a doctorate in Political Science from Temple University. She served as a Congressional Fellow during the 100th Congress. She is employed as a statistical analyst in the area of Homeland Security.

I will vote for her for the above reason alone. I don't agree with some of her other policies, but anybody that will stop the foolishness of the latte-sipping-brie-and-chardonnay-let-the-peasants-eat-cake elitists of our current County Politburo will have my vote.

Audrey wants philanthropists, fundraisers, and wealthy performing arts fans to take over Artisphere funding, budgeting, and operations ASAP.

Dr. Clement, thanks for giving us an alternative to 4 more years of Sister Cities Roving Ambassador Tejada.

Audrey Clement would make an outstanding addition the county board. She values education, jobs the need to make Arlington affordable for people just starting out all the way up to our senior citizens. She will have my support and my vote!

It's time that all the County Board incumbents retired or moved on. Several have graduate degrees in public administration and what do we have to show for all their supposed public administration expertise besides taxes raised every year and more money wasted every year?

Jay Fisette and his wealthy arts-community friends could hold one fundraiser and raise enough to operate the Artisphere for two years.

Political leaders from across the political spectrum told the County Board not to fund the Artisphere with tax dollars. Republicans, Conservatives, Independents, Greens, and even some of their fellow Democrats told them. So they followed their own Mantra 'The County Board Doesn't Listen' and it's cost us $16 million that we could have used for community infrastructure that benefits everyone. Yes, it's time for all of them to move on. And take Barbara Donnellan with them.

They can also take Susan Bell, Terry Holzheimer, Dennis Lynch, Bob Brosnan, and Ken Aughenbaugh with them.

Do ANY of them on the County Board and School Board care that my kid and 2,000 other kids will be forced to spend years in trailer classrooms because the County Board and School Board are going to extravagantly fund sports, entertainment, and recreation?

The blogs sponsored by CPRO, the developers, and the chamber of commerce are already after her.
