Become an Actively Engaged Braddock Resident: Attend the Citizen Governance Conference

As we announced in last month’s Braddock Beacon, Supervisor Cook will launch his Citizen Governance Initiative at an all-day Braddock District Visioning Conference on Saturday, May 5. Mark your calendars now for this great opportunity that will serve as the launching point for a number of policy focused committees that will help advise Supervisor Cook in making decisions that impact the Braddock District.

County Executive Proposes FY 2013 Budget

At the February 28 Board of Supervisors Meeting, Fairfax County Executive Anthony Griffin proposed the Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Budget. At $3.52 billion, the budget represents an increase of 1.71 percent from the FY 2012 Revised Budget Plan, showing limited increases in general fund disbursements and direct expenditures.

It’s Time the County Steps Up and Faces the Transportation Challenge Before Us
At some point in the next few years this Board of Supervisors, and the people of Fairfax County, will need to make a fundamental decision about our County’s future. We can continue to ignore the transportation funding crisis that is so very apparent; letting congestion choke off our economy and standing by watching as a lack of State maintenance allows our roads to crumble into dust. Or we can take matters into our own hands and address the problem.
