Too often local politicians lord it over those they’re supposed to represent. The middle deserves representations too.
Do you feel as though the politicians in Fairfax county are arrogantly lording over the people they’re supposed to serve? I do.
It seems to me there is a “middle” in Fairfax county that is being ignored and mostly forgotten.
Who are the middle?
It’s those of us who want to know our families are safe from crime in our homes, schools, and work places.
We want good schools that teach our children to meet the challenges of adulthood without social experiments that turn them against society and their parents.
We want a transportation system that works properly so we’re not sitting in traffic more than necessary.
We want politicians to keep their oaths to those they serve rather than pushing ideological agendas that undermine our values and turn neighbor against neighbor.
We don’t mind paying taxes so long as we’re getting our money’s worth, but we don’t feel that’s happening right now.
We are the forgotten middle in Fairfax county. Not far right or far left, but residents who just want competent government and peaceful communities.
Instead, local government is made dysfunctional by politicians pushing far out ideological agendas.
Our police are demoralized because politicians believe police are the problem.
Our schools are failing with plummeting test scores, extreme racial and gender curricula, and a plague of fentanyl.
Our businesses are suffering from bureaucracy and high taxes, traffic congestion is brutal, and rising property taxes are pushing homeowners out … especially those on fixed incomes.
If this sounds like you, then you’re one of the middle in Fairfax county like me.
I’m a centrist who believes politicians should care about, listen to, and represent those who have entrusted them with their votes, not arrogantly lord it over us; and not raise their own pay 30% while the rest of us struggle with a difficult economy.
I’m running for Dranesville supervisor because I believe the middle should be represented on our Board of Supervisors.
I humbly invite you to join our campaign.
