Official: Dems Nominate Jeff Dion in Occoquan

By Greg L | 30 November 2006 | PWCDC | 12 Comments

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 race. Vic’s history of personally selecting candidates hasn’t gone so well, although there really wasn’t a deep bench for him or the party as a whole to select from in Occoquan.

Dion? Dion who? It’s NOT Jeffrey Dion Burton. Jeffrey Dion is a fairly recent resident of Occoquan, an attorney, and a political neophyte. Fresh meat for the political grinder.

NLS should be calling this “Safe Republican”.

    WOAH. I had never heard of the porn star, and I am a little worried you have given what his bio says he stars in.

    I do have a habit of digging around to figure out what candidate’s histories are. For a brief moment I wondered if I had stumbled upon the political story of the year, but alas it was a different person.

    As usual, without any basis in facts, you assert that somehow this nomination was orchestrated for Jeff Dion. Of course, a short while ago you were sure it was orchastrated for Earnie Porta. And, of course, naturally you are sure that either Mike May — robot controlled by developer indebted Tom Davis — or John Gray, with his own fact checking problems and highly opportunistic approach to politics — will beat Jeff. Please, remain over confident and unbothered by the facts, it only weakens your side. As with George Allen, pride goeth before the fall.

    I think it’s a reasonable conclusion given what we’ve seen from Vic Bras this year, and particularly so when he’s willing to violate party rules in order to rush forward a caucus for a special election that hasn’t even had it’s date set yet. Short timeframes, high financial barriers to entry, and his typical behavior of pushing his own candidates behind the scenes definitely suggest he’s engineering a leftward shift in the PWCDC.

    I wonder how Jenkins, Barg, Colgan and Ebert feel about Jeff Dion. I suspect they’re not pleased at all with this selection, and from what I know about them they’ll have good reason to feel this way. Bras wants to take the party in one direction, and it’s certainly not the same direction that the current elected Democrats would appear to want.

    “…particularly so when he’s willing to violate party rules in order to rush forward a caucus for a special election that hasn’t even had it’s date set yet.”

    Is it just me, or does this sound kinda familiar?

    The PWCRC convention for BOCS Chairman was actually reviewed for compliance with the party plan and approved by RPV. In this case there was no review by DPVA and I’ve heard rumors that Vic Bras figured it didn’t matter if he broke the rules as no one was likely to sue over the issue.

    I think there’s a big qualitative difference here.

    There are enough cry-babies in the PWCDC to sue or make a public stink about almost anything.

    I believe Jeff Dion serves or has served as legal council for the Town of Occoquan until very recently? Though his services may be offered by a donation in kind or other of which I cannot confirm but I do believe he retains a seat on the Council platform at their meetings. Greg can you confirm this?

    Jeff is an older version of Mike May by 9 years but he has much less charisma and lacks the sincerity that May offers. Mike also has a strong history in Occoquan from serving as Aid to Congressman Davis.

    If he’s doing this, it’s not showing up in the press releases or the early news articles which try to introduce him to the public. As you, I’m a skeptic of a claim like this, as otherwise it would have been at the top of every article mentioning his name.

    If they’re mentioning that he’s been the president of a condo association, I can’t imaging them failing to mention this.

    Kudos to Greg L. The Skeptic is so misinformed as to be lazy at best and borderline irresponsible at worst. A two minute internet search reveals that Occoquan’s town attorney is someone named Martin Crim of the firm of Smith & Davenport, and it appears he has been the town attorney for at least several years. Skeptic, please, BVBL is a good blog because it provides useful information; do 30 seconds of your own research before clogging it up with stuff like this.
