While many eyes are on the current 13th House District represented by Bob Marshall that will split into two districts in 2011, another district in Prince William County will undergo significant changes due to redistricting and that will be the 50th District, currently represented by Delegate Jackson Miller. Currently the 50th has a little under […]
Next year when Supervisors and members of the School Board in Prince William County face re-election, they’ll do so in magisterial districts that have been dramatically re-drawn based on U.S. Census figures that will be available later this year. In the past ten years there have been pretty dramatic shifts in population as the county […]
UPDATE: Peacor does get selected as CXO.
From what I’m hearing, the next Chief Executive Officer of Prince William County is going to be Melissa Peacor. That might be a terrible choice, and it might be a pretty good one. While Peacor was certainly a central figure in Craig Gerhart’s inner cabal that made such a […]
Great response by Governor McDonnell tonight, and I appreciated the (unintentional) laugh lines of the President in the SOTU speech tonight. Your thoughts?
Given the opportunity to decide on whether voters should have to show identification at the polls, Senator George Barker voted today to kill SB 134 which would have established such a requirement. Current law is such that if someone shows up to the polls without any identification, they can sign a piece of paper where […]
After having Tim Kaine work part-time as Virginia Governor while he served as head of the Democratic National Committee, quotes like this just prompt riotous outbursts of laughter:
But in the middle of his second week in office, Republican Robert F. McDonnell is taking some time away from his duties in Richmond to deliver the response […]
Illegal aliens are very concerned that Obama might not deliver on his promise to provide them with amnesty, raising concerns that he might lose the support of this important demographic should he fail to deliver on comprehensive amnesty. Just take a look at this quote from the Washington Post:
Hugo Rodas, 40, a Gainesboro resident […]
At the same time Democrats on the Loudoun Board are spending taxpayer money to combat “global warming”, they’ve got a nearly $200 million budget deficit and are hiking the tax rate??? What a great time to consider myself a proud resident of Prince William County which makes the tough budget […]
Hoping that with the election of a new Governor we could finally get some commonsense action to reduce the number of illegal aliens unlawfully present in Virginia, and who are taking jobs that unemployed legal workers could be filling? If so, then come to Wednesday’s meeting of Help Save Manassas at Manassas City Council Chambers […]
Apparently sensing that running for re-election would be a lost cause, 10th Congressional District Chairman Jim Rich has decided not to run for re-election. Congratulations to Howie Lind for already improving the quality and performance of the 10th District just by announcing his candidacy!
UPDATE: VA Social Conservative has some interesting thoughts on this…

The Prince William County Board of Supervisors will soon select a new County Executive. It is believed widely and confirmed off-the-record by some Supervisors that Assistant County Executive, Melissa Peacor, is the leading candidate for the job. I oppose this choice strongly. The County’s new chief executive should be someone from […]
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli announced his endorsement of Howie Lind for 10th District Chairman this weekend in a rare departure from the typical non-involvement of statewide elected officials in the selection of congressional district chairmen. For Ken to do this you have to imagine that there are substantial issues with Jim Rich’s leadership as it […]
Arnoldo Borjas of Mexicans Without Borders addresses the Zapatista Army of National Liberation
Not that this should surprise a whole lot of folks, but today RT is reporting that Ricardo Juarez, the man behind the Zapatista Army of National Liberation-aligned “Mexicans Without Borders”, is himself an illegal alien.
Judge Travers of the Prince William County General District Court fined Delia Alvarez $1,200 for Gaudencio Fernandez’ latest act of civic vandalism, according to the News & Messenger, in hopefully what will be a demonstration that when you enforce the law you actually tend to obtain compliance even if the violator is a radical Mexica […]
Strange goings on at the Board of County Supervisors lately as they cancel a press conference to announce their pick for County Executive, and then go into closed session to discuss the matter. Following that session, no announcement is made. My guess is that the worst possible potential candidate, Melissa Peacor, is slated for the […]
The other day Jim Hoeft pointed out the wonderfully “post partisan” way that Virginia Democrats in the Senate of Virginia are exercising their leadership which isn’t a whole lot unlike the way Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi demonstrate the new “post partisan” era on Capitol Hill. Unlike Republican Speaker of the House Howell ensuring […]
At the end of Delegate Scott Lingamfelter’s remarks he announced that he would be drafting a letter to be signed by members of the Virginia legislature and delivered to our federal representatives, encouraging that delivery to be made by a march on Washington. Now that’s a fascinating idea! It […]
Today might be the day Prince William County decides on the rezoning application for Avendale, which could quite reasonably be entitled “The 2010 Prince William County Employment Stimulus Act For Illegal Aliens.” If we’re going to carve out space for a few hundred new homes in the rural crescent, a pretty bad idea in itself, […]
Ken Cuccinelli gave a great speech at the 10th Amendment Rally in Richmond yesterday. Enjoy.
From the News & Messenger we see a letter to the editor demonstrating that the fight over the “Math Investigations” program isn’t over yet. Now that statistics are beginning to emerge demonstrating the value, or lack thereof, of the program, they’re fueling a renewed debate over whether the school board is making the right decision […]
