Family and Friends Persuading Jay Fisette to Retire from County Board



Hi Yupette,

Another ACDC Meeting, another election cycle begins. Not surprising that five Young Yellow Dog Democrats are running to replace the Old Yellow Dog Democrats retiring from the County Board. Thing that was the most surprising was several Democrats told me that Jay Fisette's family and friends are persuading him to retire at the end of his present term on the County Board, end of 2017. By then Jay will have served 20 years on the County Board and many Dems feel that's long enough. Also, LGBT Dems who have long been Jay's most ardent supporters feel it's time to put a young LGBT candidate on the County Board.

Some of Arlington's non-Yellow Dog Democrats hold Jay largely responsible for the loss of a supposedly-safe Democratic County Board seat last year because of Jay's increasingly-expensive pet vanity projects - dog parks, live theater, and aquatics.

Jay and his spouse, Rob Rosen, have become quite wealthy during Jay's time on the County Board, so Jay can do whatever he chooses when he retires.

Thanks for your blog.

Why am I not surprised that Jay, Mary, and Walter are working on a bail-out for the Artisphere?

Correction: "Another election cycle begins, another 8 months of non-stop media coverage of Democratic candidates".

Did y'all know there's a County Board Annex at Jay's home where he and Mary and Walter can meet up to discuss C.B. and other politics?

What's going on with the company Jay's spouse, Rob Rosen owns, Healthy Companies International?

Latest I heard at ACDC last night -- Jay will announce he's retiring after this November's elections, sometime in early 2016.

I heard that Rob Rosen has retired from day-to-day management of Healthy Companies and he's trying to sell the company (which he owns).

As a corporation, Healthy Companies International is an oxymoron.

NO WAY will I ever vote for another Democrat for County Board. And I'm a Democrat.

One of the ACDC Old Timers told me Jay will retire after this year's elections so as to give ACDC the best chance of electing his successor.

Where's that independent internal auditor?

Healthy Companies International is a mess, according to recent reviews by employees.

Nothing like $50,000 worth of healthy company consulting services to facilitate a REIT's mixed use site plan.

Yes, Jay's and Rob's home on Irving Street is the County Board Annex. AND ACDC Headquarters Annex.

Yes, if you want to receive approval for your mixed-use smart growth Chairman Fisette will require your real estate trust to undergo a rigorous third party corporate health analysis.
