The Board of Supervisors began 2018 with the appointment of Bryan J. Hill as the new Fairfax County Executive. Fairfax County's financial stewardship and preservation of its Triple A Bond rating has served us well, especially when economic forecasts for the region and the nation may be affected by changes in the global economy, and the uncertainty of federal funding to states and localities. Virginia law prohibits localities from operating at a deficit, and our annual budgets must be balanced. The March edition of Mason Matters!, the television show that brings you news and information about our Mason District community, hosted by Supervisor Penny Gross, features County Executive Bryan Hill, and Joe Mondoro, chief financial officer and director of the Department of Management and Budget. Mason Matters! airs on Cable Channel 16 every Thursday at 7 p.m., and every Friday and Sunday at 6:30 p.m., and daily on-line at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/mason.
