Thanks For Nothing, Wally

By Greg L | 2 March 2011 | Prince William County | 31 Comments

A special thanks goes out to Supervisor Wally Covington for derailing an attempt to find a site for an elementary school off of Sudley Manor Drive recently.  Believing that adding school capacity wouldn’t personally do him or the Brentsville district any good, Wally Covington shot down a land swap between the Parks & Recreation Department and Prince William County schools no matter the impact on anyone else.  I suppose the deal didn’t include a fat campaign contribution from a developer seeing a rezoning, so there was nothing in it for him.  As a result more than six schools in the area will have to be significantly expanded and boundaries shifted so even more students will be separated from their schools by Business Route 234.

My prayer is that the Sudley North and Ellis precincts that are hurt the most by this self-serving decision get incorporated into the Brentsville District so the people Covington deliberately screwed have an opportunity to express their outrage in November.  I also hope that once the slate of candidates seeking the Republican nomination for that district is settled, residents in Stonewall, Westgate, Sinclair, Sudley North and Mullen all cut some nice checks to support whoever is opposing Wally Covington.  It’s bad enough that Covington is constantly cheerleading each and every effort to drop another massive residential development in the rural crescent.  Now he’s doing his very best to harm the educational outcomes for hundreds of elementary school students, including my very own.

Thanks for nothing, you bag of shit.  I just got a whole lot more interested in the outcome of what happens in my neighboring magisterial district, and I’m looking forward to returning the favor, although I don’t plan on screwing over your children like you’ve done mine.

    Wally Covington is a fraud farmer known in Texas as “all hat and no cattle.”

    He has as much spine as Martian Nohe and as much conservatism as Frank Pissonme.

    Rino fraud.

    Commissar Covington must speak with great leader of Libyan Arab Jamahiriya for endorsement as was given for Commissar Richardson on the School Board. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yeCP81-n3s ) Each will say the other is Trotskyite, but great leader like Muammar Kaddafi will build a bridge between them so Bolshevik glory can flow to both.

    Feels like old times to see Politburo in action. I feel like New Soviet Man again but without the bites from fleas.

    Wally Covington has no soul, so why does this outcome surprise you?
    How do you think those of us who actually live in the Brentsville district feel - he can’t even be bothered to acknowledge requests for assistance FROM HIS OWN CONSTITUTENTS !! , let alone provide, you know, ASSISTANCE.

    I just got an e-mail advising me that Covington is hiring campaign workers at $10/ hr.


    I’m going to be VERY happy working for his advisor FOR FREE.

    Aside from hoping that our neighborhood gets shifted INTO Stirrup’s district (who actually tries to help PWC residents, even if they DON’T live in his district — love you, JS !), the next best outcome will be attending a victory party watching Wally get (deservedly) spanked.

    Come on, Nov !!

    As much as I would love to lay this entirely on Wally, the SB (as usual) does bear its share of the blame. The Park Authority has been actively seeking a land swap with the SB for some time and has been consistently denied with regard to one particular SB property. Although the Park Authority views the property as the perfect location for a community center and will swap virtually any undeveloped property in their inventory, the SB just wants the cash from the sale of the property to a private developer. I would suggest that in the future, any transfer of lands to the SB should include a trigger that transfers the land back to the county should it no longer be required for educational purposes.

    I do wish you had been “a whole lot more interested” earlier as this is typical Wally.

    Watch out for Wally trying to get Limestone Precinct redistricted out of his district. That’s Jeanine’s precinct. We need to mount a campaign to ensure that he doesn’t pull that off. Jeanine is a solid conservative who is not beholden to developers.

    When the maps of the proposed new districts are made available, citizens need to pay close attention and let the BOCS know their feelings. The entire BOCS must vote on the final plan.

    Unless they do go with 8 districts, there’s no way Limestone isn’t in Brentsville. And while I’m all for going to 8 disticts, I think that would have to include eliminating the At-Large Chair position. And that definitely ain’t happening.

    Another key factor to keep in mind is that the next BOCS will for all intents and purposes determine the future character of Prince William County. The developers, and their lobbyists and lawyers, will back in full force after the election now that the economy is slowly mending. These developments are planned years in advance. If PWC gets another pro-developer BOCS the land rush to approve massive numbers of new residential projects will be on. If that happens, you can expect PWC to turn into a congested, high-tax, liberal-leaning jurisdiction just like Fairfax in the lifetimes of even those retired here now. Supervisors such as Wally who plan such a future for us will be comfortably ensconced in their gated communities, or living in Fauquier or other communities who did not do what they want to do to us.

    Wow Greg, were the filters off when you posted? Glad 2see that you followed the money on this one! Keep in mind that he is pushing Counaughten in richmond to call for the western bypass 2 be of paramount importance for the areas future??? Some nimbys in Fairfax derailed the 28 bypass over bullrun due to the design of the road filling in a “wet land” With the “rare bluebells”. The bocs if really motivated to get this project done would have insisted on an arch type bridge to span the wet lands> PERIOD. No big money for land speculators on that one since the traffic relief would serve an allready congestid area that was developed with that road on the books years ago.

    Yeah, I’ve never done that before. Hope I never have to again. When I followed Richardson’s bread crumbs on this topic and found out who he was talking about when “some supervisor” was blocking this school site that could prevent my kids from having their school unnecessarily converted into a mega elementary school complex, I was just a bit upset as you can probably tell.

    Hurt my kids, and I tend to get a little on edge.

    Greg, I understand your frustration and agree with your point of view. But when you start making it a personal attack with classless name calling, then the argument loses its basis and credibility.

    Again, you are correct 100%, I would just give those who are on the other side of your opinion use your raw emotion to tear apart a very good thought or stance…. Angry is ok, but calling someone a sack of sh_t” is a tad over the line…

    Anonymous is correct. If Covington succeeds in getting the “Western Transportation Corridor” built, Gainesville and much of Loudoun County will be overwhelmed with tax revenue-negative residential development. Wally is attempting to open up a Wild West-style land rush bonanza for his developer and speculator friends.

    This road is also known as the “Dulles Access Road.” Purportedly, it will ease access to Dulles Airport from Gainesville and points south through the PWC Rt. 234 bypass. In fact, it would come out to the west of Dulles Airport after going through mostly rural, undeveloped areas in Prince William and Loudoun Counties.

    The Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance (NVTA), a developer-backed front group, describes the project as a, “limited access parkway and transit corridor connecting I-95 south of Prince William County with Gainesville, I-66, Dulles Airport and Leesburg in Virginia and I-270 in Maryland.” On the same web page, “Failure to do so (build the road) will result in the loss of the best corridors to the construction of new homes . . .” How can this road be “limited access” but also open up the “best corridors to the construction of new homes?” Link below:


    NVTA identifies its founding organizations as, the Apartment and Office Builders Association, the Associated Builders and Contractors, the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Washington Board of Trade, the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (No. Virginia Chapter), the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors, and the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association.

    Are these the people you want determining your quality of life, and how much you will be paying in taxes to subsidize a land speculator windfall? Do you want a supervisor beholden to these people, or someone who will represent your interests on the Prince William County Board of Supervisors?

    I see where this could be confusing the way it is written as I read it differently

    “Failure to do so (build the road) will result in the loss of the best corridors to the construction of new homes . . .” How can this road be “limited access” but also open up the “best corridors to the construction of new homes?”

    I read it as failure to build the road will result in the loss of the best road corridors for this and instead new homes will be built on the right of way for the highway.

    For clarification, we’re actually talking about two proposed road projects – the Western Transportation Corridor and the Tri-County Parkway. Both would connect to the Rt. 234 Bypass in Gainesville and then go north through rural areas in Prince William and Loudoun Counties.

    To see the map of the Tri-County Parkway, click:


    The Commonwealth Transportation Board has already approved the CD routing and eliminated the others on the map. As is apparent from this map, the road, purportedly an access road to Dulles Airport, would go well to the west of the Airport through rural areas in Prince William and Loudoun Counties.

    This road’s only function would be to open rural areas to residential development. A majority of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors voted recently to support this project, over the objection of John Stirrup, through whose district it would run.

    The other project is the Western Transportation Corridor. To see a map, click:


    This road would be even worse than the Tri-County Parkway opening up rural areas to the west of the Prince William Parkway (Rt. 234 Bypass) to more intense development, running through Gainesville and then north through Loudoun County opening up more rural area to the west of the Tri-County Parkway to development.

    The improvements to the Rt. 29/I-66 interchange are underway now. Travel through that area should become much better when that project is complete. Thank you John Stirrup for making this happen and passing on the developer scam back in 2006. Recall that the developers of the proposed Brentswood project said they would improve that intersection but with very restrictive conditions, with taxpayers ultimately paying for it anyway through CDA financing, and by rezoning to allow an additional 6,000 residential units in the area. John, and to his credit then, Corey, both opposed Brentswood. Wally and Sean were the biggest promoters of the project.

    We are getting the Rt. 29/I-66 improvement WITHOUT Brentswood. However, if Wally and his developer/land speculator friends get what they want, two major new roads will be going through Gainesville opening up more of the Rural Crescent to development. I leave it to the reader to imagine the nightmare that will result.

    Riley - the writers of the NVTA site used the wrong preposition. They should have said “for” construction of new homes, etc. They’re also claiming in the same sentence loss of the best corridors “to” commercial development, but the emphasis should be on residential. Regional planning studies and programs (such as COG) emphasizes residential over commercial development in Prince William County and other currently rural areas. We’re clearly on their agenda to remain the DC Metro area’s bedroom while most of the job growth takes place elsewhere.

    OK Riley, I’ve pondered this again and your interpretation of the wording might be correct. However, if that is the case this statement is very deceitful. Recall that the Prince William County Parkway was first sold to us as a “limited access” roadway. Does anyone driving it now consider that to be the case?

    I stand by my conclusion that the only reason for building one or two major roadways through the rural areas in PWC and Loudoun, via Gainesville is to open up more real estate for development.

    Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

    I can tell you what Colgan can take credit for. He did absolutely NOTHING about illegal immigration even though he said he would. So I will give him credit for sitting on his rear end and doing NOTHING.

    He better not parade in Westgate. He’ll get eggs instead of confetti.

    PWC has plenty of schools. The overcrowding is likely caused by our ‘visitors’. Besides we don’t need to pay for more teachers or building here. My taxes are high enough.

    Hey the developes like the illegals especially when Prince William County gives illegals a Business licscence to sub contract via a class C !!!!!! Check the facts. That is how illegals are ” employed in the houseing industry” in our county. Chipoltle is nothing compared what went on here in the boom of 2005!

    Except for electricians to do subcontracting who must carry a class B business liscence AND have ONE million dollars bond insurace who The F#@% do you think does the concrete, drywall, rough framing, roofing, sideing, window install?????? All independate contractors who have class c or b business liscense!!! The ” employeyes of these companies are independant sub contractors themselves!!! Virginias labor laws allow this>

    Greg check it.

    Do you really want to save Manassas from like it was in 2005, get people to tell the BOCS that it is in there best interest to hav ALL contractors verified In PWCS and you will see the the U-hauls a running here.

    If any body has any disclaimer on this this factual matter let them speak there piece > PERIOD.

    I am a native of PWC whom Wally recently screwed over. As soon as Wally’s challenger is announced publicly I plan on providing my financial support to this person, along with my huge network of friends and family. Hopefully, after November Wally will have more time to focus on his law practice.

    It is gonna be an exciting year!

    So now Covington is claiming he didn’t even know about one of the proposed school sites (yeah, like something impacting development escapes his attention) and blaming the School Board. Richardson is blaming the Covington for shooting down land swaps and pinning blame on the BOCS. The finger-pointing and blame game has reached epic proportions.

    So who is going to step up and actually do something to resolve this? Who is going to fight for a new school site and stop playing the blame game? Probably whoever feels most threatened in being held to account for their past self-serving actions!

    Actually, Prince William Parkway is very much a “limited access” road, in the places where it was such when built. Obviously it isn’t down south where it went through developed areas, but there are no individual entrances through the entire center section, nor have new roads been added to new development in that section.

    Frankly, I think it’s surprising that it made it so long without being developed.
