Message from Supervisor McKay
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.
The events of the summer have set the stage for the coming year. Some of the events have widespread implications; others resonate on the neighborhood level. All, however, will affect our lives in some way.
The impact of the national economic downturn on localities became clearer as the grass in our medians continued to grow and the state made yet another round of cuts to local budgets. At the end of September, the County released news about the criminal investigation and prosecution of what looks to be the largest mortgage fraud in Fairfax County’s history. On the neighborhood level, there are important changes proposed for local parking restrictions. And of course, no newsletter would be complete without a preview of the County’s budget picture.
As you’ll read later in this newsletter, Lee District residents have strong opinions about property taxes and County services. You’ll also read about the County’s commitment to wiping out graffiti and upcoming community budget dialogues.
I wish you and your families the best in this season of crisp air and falling leaves.
