Audrey Clement is Clearly the Best County Board Candidate

Hello, Yupette,

I attended the Lyon Village Civic Association's candidate debate last night. It seemed to me that the only candidate that wasn't for more of the same old that's gotten Arlington mired in traffic congestion, school overcrowding, and mega-development that's of, by, and for developers is Audrey Clement.

Dr. Clement wants the County Board to grow up, set priorities, (first is adequately addressing school overcrowding) and bring the problems caused by mega-development under control.

I was shocked to hear a Lyon Village resident describe the shambles that weekend revelers make of Mary Hynes's own neighborhood. I was dismayed by Walter Tejada's priorities - funding the hugely expensive Longbridge aquatic-recreation complex - projected to cost $130-$145 million for soccer fields, aquatic center, and multi-use recreation facility / soccer arena.

It was refreshing to hear Dr. Clement's 'fund basic needs first' approach to county government. That's EXACTLY what Arlington County needs. Audrey Clement has my vote on November 8th.

Ken, Lyon Village

Same Mary Hynes who spends hours at County Board meetings debating B-R Corridor restaurant seating with Tejada and the other County Board members?

Um, isn't school overcrowding a School Board issue?

County Board funds the School Board.

Yes, why must we have constant drunken revelry in an historic community of homes selling for $1 million and up?

Because Mary Hynes approves.

Worst was so called 'Green' candidate Abby Raphael, who defended everything the Democratic Machine does and fails to do.

I find it appalling that Mary Hynes and Walter Tejada only agreed to walk through Clarendon at 2 AM to see how out of control the behavior has become.

Audrey Clement wants to control the amount and hours alcohol can be sold in Clarendon. She gets my vote.

The phrase 'family planning' is still considered off-limits by the Favola and Merrick campaigns.

Tejada and Hynes lied about the cost of the Longbridge sports, recreation, aquatic complex. It's $35 million for the outdoor playing fields, $50 million for the aquatic center, and $45-$65 million for the mixed-use recreation facility, depending on whether the mixed-use recreation facility includes an indoor soccer field.

Four yeas of Mary Hynes is enough.

Abby Raphael is another yupscale lawyer who is full of $hit.
