Dear Lee District Neighbor:
Welcome to my electronic newsletter. I hope that you’ll find the information useful and that you will contact me and my staff if you have questions or concerns.
Much has happened since the last issue when I wrote about the impact of the economic downturn on Fairfax County. We balanced our FY2010 budget and avoided the deep cuts to public safety that had been threatened earlier in the year. We also restored a number of potential human services cuts and maintained our zoning and Strike Team levels. There are trade offs, however, such as fewer library hours and transit routes that will make our day-to-day lives less convenient.
As you’ll read later in this newsletter, our free summer concert series, funded by private sector contributions, is continuing at Lee District Park, but the Fourth of July fireworks are gone—the result of both Park upgrades and budget restrictions.
I wish you and your families a happy and a healthy summer.
Jeffrey C. McKay
