Arlington Would Lose AAA Bond Rating With Garvey on Board, Quality of Life With Kelly on Board
Have you seen the commercial real estate news? Area economy is slowing because of federal government cutbacks, higher energy costs, freeze in federal workforce's salaries. In-fill redevelopment is being put on hold, for example Akridge's plans to redevelop 500 N. Washington Street in Falls Church.
Libby Garvey's made so many promises to parents for new schools, together with her tacit endorsement of the County Board's pet vanity projects, that Arlington would surely lose its AAA bond rating if she were elected.
Mark Kelly is fiscally conservative all right, except when it comes to his friends the developers, who he would encourage to totally urbanize Arlington with a huge helping of taxpayer-funded subsidies.
Electing Kelly or Garvey to the County Board would be a lose-lose for Arlington residents. Each is committed to their respective ideology - Lexus Liberalism and Tea Party Conservatism.
In candidate debate after candidate debate Audrey Clement proved herself to be the candidate who would serve the best interests of Arlington residents, not the unrestrained social welfare and corporate welfare interests.
We urge Arlington voters to elect Audrey Clement tomorrow. You can vote at your usual polling place from 6 AM to 7 PM.
