Don't Want HOT Lanes? Stop Approving More Parking!

Hello, Yupette,

If the County Board is so hostile to HOT Lanes, why is the County Board on a roll to approve a lot of commuter parking spaces via new site plans this year?

Who Defends the Rights of Citizens to Sign Petitions?

Hi Yupette,

I am employed by Arlington County. I also signed the 'change of government petition'. We have a right to sign petitions, afforded to us by the U.S. Constitution. Who would I contact if I am demoted or fired for signing the petition?

Kim - DHS

Fisette Will Continue 'Boutique' Projects

Hi Yupette,

Last night County Board Chair Jay Fisette resisted requests from Civic Federation delegates to reverse his emphasis on 'boutique' projects and concentrate on basic infrastructure. So there's an aquatic center and a bunch of million dollar lighted soccer fields in our future.

Virginia General Assembly Said....

Yupette, here is what the Virginia General Assembly had to say long before "Rolling Thunder" existed. It's in the Code of Virginia.

"It is hereby declared that the protection and preservation of the home is the keystone of democratic government that the public health and welfare and the good order of the community require that members of the community enjoy in their homes a feeling of WELL-BEING, TRANQUILITY, and PRIVACY"

Time to End 'Rolling Thunder'


I live near I-66 and every year 'Rolling Thunder' is worse, noise and people on motorcycles going way over the speed limit. Memorial Day is not supposed to be this way. Time to end "Rolling Thunder'.
