As expected, Vic Bras has managed to yet again orchestrate a nomination by setting a high candidate filing fee for a Democratic Caucus and establishing a very short timeframe, possibly in violation of the Democrat’s party plan, and has gotten Jeffrey Dion to be the only candidate for the Democratic nomination for the Occoquan Supervisor’s […]
Note Update below
I’ve been expecting, and now GOPHokie is reporting that there’s a press release out there from Michelle McQuigg that finally settles the question of whether she is running for re-election in the 51st HOD, or for Clerk of the Court. I’ve personally heard Delegate McQuigg talk about running for Clerk this summer, […]
Delegate Frederick, who I mentioned in “Kaine Sets Sights On PWC Delegates” was gracious enough to respond in the comments on that post. I think his responses deserve more prominent visibility, which help to explain why Ben over at Not Larry Sabato has been reporting so favorably on Delegate Frederick. He writes:
While I […]
I’ve been watching the website of the Prince William County Democrats today in anticipation of their announcement on candidate filings for the Occoquan Supervisor’s race. Instead of an announcement, they’ve simply taken down the Call for a caucus and removed any reference to running a candidate for the race. I was expecting to […]
Now that there’s officially an open seat on the Manassas City Council, and applications are now being solicited for candidates for the position, all of the conservative residents of Manassas are clamoring for the chance to fill Jackson Miller’s seat. Here’s the complete list of all of the conservatives who have applied for the […]
Last night there was a special work session of the Manassas City Council to perform some much-needed edits to the legislative priorities document drafted by City Manager Larry Hughes and reported previously. Three new priorities were added to the document.
First, English as a Second Language program requirements are placing a heavy burden on the […]
I got a tip tonight that the General Assembly website has been updated, and it reports that Jackson Miller has been assigned to the Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee where he will join Delegate Lingamfelter. He was also assigned to Science and Technology, where he will join Delegate Marshall.
It’s only one vote, but […]
Earlier this week the Washington Post covered Governor Kaine’s recent ride around Northern Virginia where the Governor had the opportunity to enjoy some of the transportation problems that many of us are faced with on a daily basis. The Post reported:
Kaine weighed in yesterday on another Northern Virginia land-use question, commenting on the Prince […]
Jackson Miller was sworn in as a Delegate today at noon in Richmond in an informal ceremony attended by a few friends and family members. I had an opportunity to speak with him briefly before the ceremony, and he wanted to pass along his appreciation to all of the volunteers and contributors who worked so […]
Jim Riley has gotten wind of the whispers regarding who may be the Democratic nominee for the upcoming Occoquan Supervisor race, and identifies political neophyte Jeff Dion as a declared candidate. I’ve heard the same thing. The filing deadline for the Democrats is at 6PM on Wednesday the 29th, after which an announcement […]
Senator Warner’s mumblilngs about possibly seeking another term have not gone unnoticed by Jerry Fuhrman, who gives some excellent commentary (“You Want More Of The Same?”) about just how bad an idea this is over at From On High. Jerry is right on the money here.
What I find particularly galling about Senator Warner’s behavior […]
Last night at the Manassas City Council Meeting a statement on legislative priorities was reviewed that included the following:
Local Revenue Capacity - that if the General Assembly removes or reduces any revenues from one source, they have to be made up from somewhere else in order to keep funding levels consistent.
Machinery and Tools Tax - […]
Reader AndyH has been kind enough to provide us with the schedule for candidates for appointment to fill out the term of Delegate-Elect Jackson Miller on the city council from tonight’s meeting. I’m pretty certain his information is accurate.
Resumes and/or letters of interest are due by 5PM on December 18th, likely at City Hall. […]
At the PWCRC meeting tonight, the Tom Davis campaign machine showed up with Mike May for Supervisor signs, lapel stickers and literature, making a big splash while the other expected candidate John Gray simply showed up. His campaign literature lists endorsements by Tom Davis, Corey Stewart and Michele McQuigg, and generally mirrors the platform […]
The Manassas Journal-Messenger reports that Delegate-Elect Jackson Miller will step down from the Manassas City Council on December 4th, officially opening a position on the Manassas City Council which will be filled by appointment. The leading contenders for that appointment appear to be Sheryl Bass and Maureen Wood, who are openly campaigning. Ms. […]
Sysyphus is still trying to roll his opposition to allowing state firearms laws to prevail in National Parks, as it currently does in National Forests and state parks with his recent post “Guns in national parks (again)”, a post which deserves to yet again roll back down the hill.
For years there has been no objection […]
This week there was some discussion over at TC regarding the resolution introduced by Wally Covington which seeks to impose a moratorium on residential rezonings by the Prince William County Board of Supervisors. The resolutions operative clauses are:
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Prince William County Board of Supervisors does hereby call for […]
If you’re a federal firearms licensee, you recently got an important announcement from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives:
This serves to inform all federally licensed manufacturers, importers, and dealers that the newly revised Firearms transaction Record Part I Over-the-Counter (ATF Form 4473 (5300.9) (English-Spanish) is now available through the ATF Distribution Center.

I’ve heard from several within the leadership of the PWCRC that Vic Bras, Chairman of the Prince William County Democratic Party has been threatening to file a lawsuit against the PWC Republican Party and Corey Stewart in regard to the mailing sent out on behalf of Corey Stewart which detailed the contributions of developer interests […]
NLS is reporting on Senator Ken Cuccinelli’s call for divestment from companies that engage in commerce with the government of Sudan. This is a no-brainer, as the ongoing tragedy in Darfur is an abomination and it’s utterly indefensible to contribute in any way to this tragedy. It’s a good move, both ethically […]
