Janet Howell for State Senate

Hello,

The redrawn 32nd Senate District includes ten precincts in North Arlington. The 32nd includes Rt 50, I-66, Washington Boulevard, and Rt 29. The district also includes Metrorail's Orange Line and the East Falls Church Metro station. So transportation decisions made in Richmond have and will have a significant impact on the quality of life on Arlington residents who live in the 32nd District.

We blame bi-partisan Rail-to-Dulles, BRAC, and high-growth boosters for Arlington's infrastructure problems. That includes the leaders of the major political parties. They want growth, but they don't want to pay for sufficient infrastructure concomitant with growth. We fault both Janet Howell and Patrick Forrest for their immature and irrational approach to transportation funding. Not surprising since their fellow Republican and Democratic legislators exhibit the same behavior.

We, therefore, endorse Janet Howell based upon her concerns for human needs and human rights. Patrick Forrest has a lengthy resume' based on assignments and junkets during his service with the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard in the Bush Administration. He opposes women's rights to make their own healthcare decisions. He opposes organized labor. He is not only anti-privacy, he supported the worst abuses of the Patriot Act by the Bush Administration, abuses that only ended when President Obama took office.

Consequently, we endorse Janet Howell for re-election to the Virginia State Senate.

Cindy and Susan

Forrest is another warrior wannabe in the upcoming battle between liberals and conservatives in the General Assembly.

Ask the born in the USA recreational boaters about the Coast Guard's abuses during the Bush Administration.

"Worst abuses"? Are you referring to the thousands of warrant-less break-ins and searches, most of U.S. citizens' homes, in the DC Metro area during the Bush Administration?

Are you kidding me? Mr. Forrest has walked the walk when it comes to human rights (Katrina, BP Oil Spill, Nepal, migrant farm workers, etc.) You cant blame him for the excesses of the Bush Administration. he was a career govt federal worker not a Bush appointee. Janet was asleep at the whel when it came to Dulles Metrorail. Why didn't she officially request funds for Metrorail from the State Govt if she was such a powerful member of the Budget Conference Committee? She's been there too long, we need new blood.

More BS and lies. Forrest was and is a dangerous elitist neo-con who approved Bush's war on anyone who didn't go along with Bush's warfighting.

The Repigs were lined up 10-deep to approve the Repig Chamber of Commerce's 'planning' for Rail to Dulles.

I'm a recreational boater, and own a 48 foot sailboat that I sail on the Bay, Intercoastal Waterway, and Atlantic. I'll attest to the Coast Guard waging a war on terror against law abiding born-in-the USA recreational boaters from 9-11-2001 to 1-20-2009.

Neo-Cons like Forrest want everyone but themselves and their Good Buddy REIT, Developer, Law Firm, Chamber of Commerce pals to pay in 2015 for what they wanted in 2005.

Forrest helped Bush wage a war on everyone who didn't go along with Bush's warfighting.

Many of the Bush Administration junkets that pad Forrest's resume' were primarily for 'travel and fun'.

Republicans wanted Rail-to-Dulles in 2005, just like they wanted BRAC in 2005.
