County Board Adds Smart Growth Facilitation Boosters
Thanks for keeping us posted about Chris Zimmerman's Smart Growth America antics. But it gets worse. The County Board just again enlarged the County's Smart Growth Facilitation Team. Arlington now has a Resident Ombudsman and a Director of Public Engagement. Two more VIP bureaucrats who will give you the run-around when you ask them when your crumbling street gets repaved. How much do all the new Deputy County Managers and other County Staff get paid to cater to the wants of the tear-down developers? Know what all these fat cat bureaucrats are? People who are past-due for retirement (like County Manager Schwartz) but are promoted because they're loyal Democrat Smart Growth boosters. Oh, they either don't live in Arlington or live in an Arlington neighborhood that's exempt from Smart Growth. Like the developers they cater to. My taxes keep going up and up. For what? Why don't the developers pay their servants on the County's payroll? Thanks again for this blog.
