If you’re a Centreville resident who has had enough of your local library being used as an informal day laborer’s center, and the resulting assaults on juvenile girls that have happened since the transformation of this safe haven for children into a hunting ground for sexual predators, you might want to get in touch with the Centreville Citizen’s Coalition. Nothing ever happens in local politics unless citizens start standing up and demanding change, and change is more than overdue here.
Gerry Connolly and the rest of the Fairfax Board of County Supervisors hasn’t done a thing to address this serious problem, and this is just the organization that could push for much-needed reforms in this area of Fairfax County. It’s pretty clear that unless the citizens get involved in this issue, the current board isn’t going to do anything. That will be particularly true if what happens on November 6th doesn’t substantially change the makeup of the Fairfax Board of County Supervisors. Should Connolly survive the challenge to his chairmanship being mounted by Gary Baise, reform of county policies in regards to illegal aliens is not going to be a priority. It’ll most likely be back-burnered at best while the board renews its efforts to locate suitable median strips upon which to have more townhouses constructed.
A determined group of citizens could change this, however. Enough citizens saying no to criminal illegal aliens using the Centreville Public Library as a hunting ground, and demanding that the county start doing something to protect the most vulnerable among us from criminal illegal aliens could effect the important changes desperately needed in Fairfax County, regardless of the outcome of next weeks elections.
It’s time to start fixing the mess in Centreville.
