"Arlington Spends $100 Million / Year Keeping the Homeless Homeless"

Hello Arlington Yupette:

I read Arlington's 2011 Budget on-line and I viewed the Budget hearings on-line the past 3 evenings.

Isn't it obvious that it's costing Arlington's taxpayers about $100 million a year to keep Arlington's homeless, homeless?

Zimmerman Ignored Planning, Population Data to Fund Pet Projects

Hi Yupette,

Did you know that Arlington County has a full time demographer on County Staff? Did you know that that County's Planning Staff collects a lot of data regarding the effects of increased population and construction on transportation?

Why does "Guru of Gridlock" Chris Zimmerman ignore demographic data that indicate the County's population grew 30,000 over the past 10 years? Why does Zimmerman ignore the construction data that indicate Zimmerman and the County Board approved the construction of 30,000 new parking spaces in Arlington over the past decade?

What are these people, anyway? Elected officials who are supposed to respond to our needs or a bunch of Elitists who respond to the wants of special interests?

"Arlington Chamber of Commerce is Un-American"

Hello Yupette,

I am appalled by the Arlington Chamber of Commerce. The Arlington Chamber's upcoming trip to China is a shameless attempt to outsource high paying white collar jobs to China. The Chamber also opposes on-site renewable energy, relying on the corrupt LEED system to construct more energy-inefficient buildings in Arlington that consume huge amounts of fossil fuel and also install new 300-vehicle parking garages under or adjacent to the buildings. The Arlington Chamber is Un-American as are the local media and local government politricksters who cater to the Arlington Chamber's agenda.

Arlington's Public Budget Hearings - March 23-25

Arlington's public budget hearings will be held on March 23rd, 24th, and 25th. More information can be found on the County's public relations Website You can also watch the proceedings via this site. The tax rate hearing on March 25th will likely be lightly attended, if you don't want to spend hours waiting in line behind special interest groups. Yupette believes there should be no tax rate increase and an increase in a few fees to keep pace with the County's actual expenses.

Hey Yupette,

See old Scurrilous Scotty's blog? He's wondering who will oppose Zimmerman. His posting has to be the biggest LOL on any blog so far this year.
