Alan Howze Will 'Protect Our Quality of Life'? Like a Fox Protects Chickens!


 Hey Yupette,

Received the latest large postcard from Alan Howze's campaign. Full of blather and vague promises for more of the same. "Protect our quality of life"? Protect WHOSE quality of life? My streets are crumbling. When do they get repaved? Not this year. Maybe next year. Department of Environmental Services is too busy planning $310 million streetcar systems for the Pike and Crystal City. That's where our taxes are going, into slush funds for Alan's and his fellow Democrats' pet special interests.

"Protect our quality of life"? Anyone been in Clarendon Friday and Saturday evenings lately? County Board, especially Lyon Village resident Mary Hynes, has received, and ignored, hundreds of complaints about pub crawlers - Alan Howze's urban hipster campaign volunteers.

"Protect our quality of life"? By installing an expensive and dangerous streetcar system on Columbia Pike that will cause massive traffic congestion and hundreds of accidents every year?

Alan Howze will "protect out quality of life" all right. Like a fox protects chickens.

The only reason a streetcar system is still being pushed as a viable option for the Pike and Crystal City is because of massive censorship by the local media of information about state-of-the-art BRT.

Howze is already helping Jay Fisette push his 'cost recovery' agenda so the 'savings' can go into slush funds for extravagant vanity projects.

Howze endorsed by Jay Fisette and Walter Tejada? Two more reasons not to vote for him!

We need an Independent Auditor in County Government as soon as possible! The County Board-County Manager slush funds are out-of-control.

Never mind $310 million, Alan predicts a Pike streetcar system would cost $400 million.

Alan is endorsed by Senator Mark Warner, who lives in Old Town Alexandria.

Alan's service on the Tuckahoe Elementary School PTA and Alliance for Housing Solutions didn't contribute any significant solutions for problems that afflict both Tuckahoe and Arlington's competing housing bureaucracies.

How much is being pulled out of street paving to go into the Columbia Pike streetcar slush fund, Crystal City streetcar slush fund, Aquatic Center slush fund, Artisphere slush fund, Signature Theater bailout slush fund, and so on?

There's so many TIFs being created to give the developers corporate welfare that's there's nothing left for street paving.

County Board lavishly entertained a REIT in the County Board Offices yesterday afternoon before telling DHS Staff 'there are so many poor people in Arlington we can't help them all'.

Cindy, we've named the pothole after Alan Howze. We are taking bets about when the Alan Howze Pothome will be fixed. Please let us know.

How about - $300 million in TIF funds to Crystal City for a streetcar and everything else?

That's the PlutoCrats plan.

Graham Family members who control the Post told the Post's editorial staff not to endorse anyone running for office who doesn't support streetcar systems, new urbanism, urban hipster lifestyles, affordable housing for the creative class, and resegregation through gentrification.

Mobility disabled community is furious about the state of the brick paver sidewalks in the B-R Corridor.

Only way the Alan Howze Pothole will be fixed anytime soon is if one of Alan's bikeshare hipster volunteers rides into it while texting.

Resegregation through Gentrification? Hasn't that been the Post's agenda for years?

Mary Hynes must have herd a thousand complaints about the Clarendon Pub Crawl since she was first elected to the County Board - many from her neighbors. Only gets worse every year.
