Wealthy Groups to Use Tax-Funded Artisphere for Major Fund Raising

Hi, Yupette,

Now that the Artisphere's construction has been funded by tax dollars the wealthy performing arts (and other) groups will begin using the Artisphere for fund-raising. First major event is a pre-opening Gala in early October.

There was no significant fund raising to contribute to the Artisphere's construction by the wealthy groups that will use the Artisphere (which is managed by Arlington County). Several million dollars were stripped from the County's pay-as-you go accounts to fund Artisphere construction.

Time for a Change of Leadership in Arlington

Hi Yupette,

What does the conflict over the failed 'change of government" petition indicate? That it's time for an across-the-board change of leadership in Arlington. The people who are in various positions of authority have just been around too long.

Arlington Emergency Responders Unprepared for Severe Weather

Hey Yupette,

FYI, Arlington's emergency responders were unprepared for yesterday's severe weather in North Arlington.

Same people who circulated the COG petition.
