Fisette Spouse Keynoting Healthy Streetcars to U.S. Department of Transportation?


Hey, Yupette,

In light of the recent election of Independent John Vihstadt to the County Board, resignation under threat of expulsion by Libby Garvey from the Arlington Democratic Committee, poor planning decisions by the County Board, and increasing dissatisfaction with County Government by Arlington voters, residents, and taxpayers, I had to wonder what County Board Chairman Jay Fisette's spouse, Robert Rosen, and his executive consulting firm, Healthy Companies International, have been up to lately.

Turns out that Bob has a new keynote presentation, 'Gounded: How Leaders Stay Rooted in an Uncertain World' which he gives to various corporate, non-profit, and government organizations around the United States. Early this month Bob made a presentation to top government executives at the United States Department of Transportation, in Washington.

According to blurbs posted to the Internet, Bob's latest keynote presentation consists of  'storytelling and case studies from his interviews with over 300 CEOs. Rosen focuses on the six personal dimensions that fuel...and refuels...the world's top leaders: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational, and spiritual health. Audiences will walk away with a strategy and concrete steps to adopt the Healthy Leader model that incorporates their personal goals, values, and assets'.

Bob Rosen is apparently the sole owner and CEO of Healthy Companies International. His former domestic partner, now spouse, Jay Fisette, has refused to recuse himself from deliberations when Bob's clients have appeared before the County Board, and provide a list of Healthy Companies clients with matters pending in County Government. Chairman Fisette also refuses to provide a statement of his and Bob Rosen's joint income on the grounds that same sex marriage is not legal in Virginia.

Jay doesn't want you to know that while he and Bob are worth at least $20 million the taxpayers are bailing out their favorite pet special interest, Signature Theater.

Healthy? Rob Rosen is a typical overweight middle-aged out-of-shape white guy.

For all their wealth, and I understand Jay's parents were also affluent, where is there any mention of any significant philanthropy by Jay and Bob?

How much in the way of 'Healthy Leadership' consulting, training, and one-on-one advice from Guru Bob, do the REITs who want their site plans rubber stamped by the County Board have to buy?

Is that legal?

Works both ways...Jay facilitates the REITs' site plans in return for the REITs facilitating Healthy Companies International revenues.

Oh, there are all also the fossil fuel polluters, like Boeing, Dominion, Washington Gas, etc., who are good buds with Jay and Bob.

Time for Jay to move on. I have to wonder where his vacation/retirement retreat from the New Urbanism he inflicts on us is located.

Jay doesn't want to reveal which of Bob's corporate clients are going to to County Government, including the County Board, for various approvals? Time for Jay to resign/retire.

Where are the law enforcement agencies? Graft is illegal, last I heard.

Jay was asked to recuse himself from planning decisions involving Bob Rosen's clients years ago, back when Boeing was seeing its give-away deal from the County Board.

The media have huge conflicts of interest, two biggest are with the chambers of commerce and the REITs.

Media owners and editors have zero social responsibility, journalists only report about the haves and have-nots.

Only serious journalism is in the sports pages. Duh.

Yeah, only 'serious' journalism is about sports and celebrities.

Why don't Bob and Jay just write a check for a tax-deductible contribution to cover Signature Theater's extravagances every December 31st, so Arlington taxpayers don't have pay for all of that?

Why doesn't Healthy Companies International just merge with Smart Growth America so they can completely f--- up everyone's quality of life around the World?
