Gutshall a Leading Contender for Reeves Farmhouse Ownership

Hey Yupette,

Discussion continues about which Young PlutoCrat is going to own the Reeves Farmhouse, which the County Board decided to sell last month rather than renovate and turn into an environment education center.

For years speculation has been that the Arlington County Board and Arlington Democratic Party wanted the Reeves Farmhouse to go to a deserving Democrat, perferably someone who works at home and has a thriving and expanding business.

Lately the sentiment around ACDC is for a self-employed Democrat with a family to more into Reeves Farmhouse rather than the farmhouse become a law office or real estate office.

So a tentative decision has been reached among the ACDC movers and shakers to give County Board candidate Erik Gutshall, who is a successful self-employed gentrification contractor, the right of first refusal on buying the farmhouse. Of course nothing will be announced until after November's elections.

Meanwhile the County (Parks and Rec) is spending several hundred thousand dollars fixing up the farmhouse in advance of a sale.

Decision to sell the farmhouse to a deserving Dem was made years ago, and now it's just a matter of which Dem finally gets it.

Later,

Mike Bluemont

What can you expect when a guy shamelessly uses his family to promote his business and political interests - in a one-party political regime?

"Self-employed gentrification contractor..." You got that right.

Erik can have whatever he wants. He's endorsed by Chris Zimmerman and Jay Fisette.

Younger PlutoCrats learn from older PlutoCrats. Mark Warner shamelessly used his family when he first ran for U.S. Senate.

County is spending more than $300,000 to enhance the market value of the farmhouse.

Some fat cat Democrats should buy the farmhouse and donate it to ACDC for a new Headquarters.

How many formerly-affordable small homes has Erik's company improved to the point that they now list for more than $1 million after "Millennialization"?

Erik Gutshall is like Chris Zimmerman was 20 years ago. Same wonderful personality too.

I have had it with the Democrats. Arlington is run like the Chinese run their cities - one party in power forever, capitalist, and corrupt.

If Erik Gutshall doesn't want to buy the farmhouse some other Democrat or Democrat-controlled for-profit or non-profit will.

Agree. Arlington is run like the Chinese run suburbs of Shanghai, Bejing, etc.

I'm voting for Audrey Clement. Arlington Democrats are completely corrupt. You have to pay thousands in bribes to Zoning and Code Enforcement inspectors to have mechanical-electrical-plumbing upgrades to your business approved. Which is what you can expect when one party controls everything for 35 years.

Arlington is run by the Democratic Party like the Chinese Communist Party runs Hong Kong.

Some lucky Democrat will get a nice home which will be zoned for a home office addition.

Committee of 100 should pass the hat at their next Marymount U. dinner. Donate the Farmhouse to the Democratic Party for use as a conference center.

What's wrong with a Republican Fat Cat buying the farmhouse and donating it to ACRC for a headquarters?

Erik can buy a weekend retreat somewhere far from Arlington with all the construction his company does for the County's Limo Libs.

How much time and taxpayer money has so far been spent on this charade?

I asked three people who work in Parks and Rec who's going to get the farmhouse. Two said they didn't know and one said "It's still being decided."

Reeves Farmhouse would be the perfect place for one of the news bloggers or one of the smaller media outlets.
