Bond Referendum Citizen Committee
The 2006 Bond Referendum Citizen Committee elected as chairperson Braddock District representative Janyce Hedetniemi at the first meeting of the committee on Aug. 31. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors created the committee to inform the public about this year’s public safety and parks bond referendums.

This is the third citizen bond committee Hedetniemi has served on and second as chairperson. “This is a unique opportunity for citizen involvement in these important issues for Fairfax County,” said Hedetniemi.
Hedetniemi serves as the vice chairman and Braddock District representative of the Fairfax County Transportation Advisory Committee, immediate past president of the Braddock District Council of Community Associations, the Braddock District representative on the Tysons Land Use Task Force and president of the Oak Hill Citizens Association. She is a consultant in community relations.
The 2006 Bond Referendum Citizen Committee is comprised of 13 members. The Board of Supervisors appoints one member from each district and one representative each from the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, the League of Women Voters and the Federation of Citizens Association. The committee’s primary goal is to provide county residents with information about the bond referendums.
Fairfax County voters will be asked to vote yes or no on two individual bond questions in the Nov. 7 general election. The ballot will include separate questions for public safety facilities bonds and parks and park facilities bonds. The public safety bonds question asks voters to allow the county to borrow $125 million for construction, expansion and renovation of public safety, civil and criminal justice facilities. The parks bonds question asks voters to allow the county to borrow $25 million for use by the Fairfax County Park Authority to acquire land and develop new facilities.
