County Board Democrats, Candidates, Endorse Potomac Skycar

Hi Yupette,

I knew there had to be an expensive follow-on to the Pike streetcar because Arlington Democrats pursue expensive vanity infrastructure projects like Bill Clinton collects girlfriends. Thanks to Arlington's new Guru of Multi-Modal Gridlock, AED Director Victor Hoskins, both the County Board Democrats and  the Democratic candidates for County Board are all on-board the County's next big vanity infrastructure project, the Potomac Gondola from Geogetown to Rosslyn, aka the Potomac Skycar. Projected cost? Depends on who you talk with in County Government, anywhere from $25 million to $250 million. Meanwhile, as has been noted in previous postings to your blog, Rosslyn streetscapes are crumbling, but there are no plans to renovate and repair anything, only to build more expensive buildings. Too bad write-ins aren't allowed in Tuesday's Democratic Primary, or I would just write-in Audrey Clement and Mike McMenamin. Thanks for your blog.

Last night's Planning Commission meeting saw a procession of Rosslyn community leaders read statements about their unhappiness about the so-called 'planning' for Rosslyn.

Why them lowdown snakes. Looks just like a flying streetcar. I bet Chris Zimmerman and Smart Growth are behind this. I knowed the Plutocrats warn't going to stop taxing and spending just because they lost last November.

So who's going to pay the $350 million with all the other wants County Government has to focus on?

People who do the 'planning' for Arlington don't live anywhere near Arlington.
