Time To Revolt

By Greg L | 7 August 2012 | Prince William County | 20 Comments

Supervisor Candland’s proposal to enact ethics reforms regarding conflicts of interest died at tonight’s meeting of the Board of Supervisors for lack of a second, even after the proposal was modified to resolve any far-fetched alleged issues with Virginia’s Dillon Rule.  As for the grab-bag of additional government spending in the carryover budget, I haven’t gotten word but given this collection of irresponsible, corrupt, unrepentant, and thoroughly useless excuses for elected officials I have little doubt it passed by at least a 5-2 margin.

It is now time to start collecting signatures on recall petitions to remove these cretins from office.  Maureen Caddigan, I believe you’re up first.

UPDATE: Virtucon and Sheriff of Nottingham are equally pissed here. Here’s a particularly interesting snippet from Virtucon’s excellent report:

And we were watching. Or at least attempting to watch. So many residents tried to watch the proceedings online that the county’s entire website crashed. However, the meeting broke for a dinner with the county Service Authority and they had yet to get to Candland’s resolution. The dinner was held outside of the Board chambers where the broadcasting equipment is located and it was determined that the rest of the meeting would take place at the secondary location following the conclusion of the dinner. THIS ENABLED THE BOCS TO SHOOT DOWN THE CANDLAND RESOLUTION OUT OF SIGHT OF THE CITIZENRY. No one could see this streamed online. No one could watch this on their local cable access channel.

Yeah, you worthless fools.  Just go and try to hide from us.  It’s not going to work.

    These IDIOTS don’t seem to realize that when they inspire a full-out revolt among the previously faithful, there are lots of very angry people out there with plenty of stories to tell.

    For example, one sitting supervisor had a campaign volunteer tasked with the job of screening political donations they were begging from the Muslim community to try to flag donations from persons connected with terrorist organizations. Not only did they fully understand they were fundraising within a community connected with radical Islam, but brought in a volunteer who was connected to it sufficiently to be able to discern which persons engaged in terrorist financing that hadn’t yet gotten the attention of the FBI and could become a political liability in the near future. Instead of urging this volunteer to share their knowledge with the FBI and support our national security, all they wanted to do was make sure any political donations wouldn’t become problems in that one election.

    There’s a TON more of explosive stuff like this out there. This could end up being a really interesting year.

    I will never vote for any of these crooks again. Pete Candland is THE ONLY one with any morals and decency. I hope they ALL get thrown out.

    Did they break the sunshine laws by moving the meeting without notice? Rob?

    Conflict of interest resolution dies without vote


    This says it all:

    “Potomac Supervisor Maureen S. Caddigan joked she’s been involved with so many community groups that she would have to disclose on a vote nearly every meeting.”

    Greg, I’m with you 100%, but how do we overcome the massive developer financing these people get? Any threat to a submissive BOCS and the developers will pour however much is needed into PWC for media and anything else to ensure their rubber stamps stay in place at the McCoart Building.

    So one of the guys, Corey Stewart, wants to be lt Gov? How about this for a bumper sticker “Silence is Golden”. Or “Elect me and I will slam the door in your face”. I suppose it would have been better for Corey had he voted for this resolution. Did he? But even if he did, he clearly lacks the leadership to carry the day with these clowns.

    When will they learn that if the public wants anything, its honesty and accountability. Hopeless.

    I was there, but i had to utilize skills i learned in the Army’s Ranger school to find them.

    These folks are scared. Very scared. Scared to disclose their personal interests on the issues on which they vote, scared that past issues on which they voted will come back to haunt them, scared that the new guy might upset their cart of rotten apples.

    I do not believe they violated any laws with their Escape and Evasion tactics. Scared people make mistakes. Hiding from the public was one of them.

    Some members attempted to justify refusal to second Candland’s motion by saying they felt bullied by vitriolic bloggers. To quote a wise man, “If you can’t stand the heat,…”

    Some members decried the dampening effect this issue has had on their own and their family members’ involvement with the community. Too bad. If you cannot understand a taxpayer’s problem with you funneling our money to your wife’s favorite charity, you do not have an appreciation of your constituents’ concerns and probably should not be holding public office.

    One member mumbled incomprehensibly about the Governor appointing him to Boards and the Dillon Rule. His lack of proficiency with the English language should be enough to disqualify him from office.

    Nohe really doesn’t know why he’s against disclosure. Something about calling it a conflict. Call it a toaster, Marty. Will you vote for it if we call it a toaster?

    I really don’t blame these folks, though. We (the citizens) have allowed them to treat our $oney like their own personal bank acconts for so long they’re bound to recoil at an attempt to shine some light on its disposition. Reminded me of the way a cur growls when you take away a bone you’ve given it.

    JTF, this isn’t even about developers. Even developers want elected leaders they can trust and who are not surrounded by the appearance of impropriety (whether real or imagined.) That’s just plain good for business. The slush fund issue and now the conflict of interest resolution wouldn’t have any impact upon developers at all. Development will always be a separate issue that will split different ways in different parts of the county. (That doesn’t even get into the commercial vs. residential development argument.)

    Let me be the first to say Candland has officially joined the esteemed Bob Marshall School of Higher Principles as someone who has values and convictions and is not willing to compromise them even for the sake of the “Party.” As a result, like Bob he will be henceforth “persona non grata” and get no further party support because having principles has upset the apple cart.

    Their nonsupport of Marshall hasn’t had much of an impact given that he was first elected in 1991. (I did lit drops for him back then, so I remember that well.)

    Riley, that is due to his very strong grassroots organization (people like you). I see this as more of a Badge of Honor than a hindrance.

    This is what we need at McCort at the next BOCS meeting.

    Marshall is a likable guy whose “issues” turn off way too many people. Candland is an OK guy who is pushing issues that reverberate positively across the political spectrum.

    Anonymous, I’m focusing on the similar character of the two individuals. I venture to say if Candland has been in office as long as Marshall he will have taken a stand or two that is bound to be unpopular with some. He just doesn’t have the tenure yet.

    Good for you guys for being pissed. Virginia politics at the state and local level has been opaque too long. While this episode is sad, it’s good to see that the people on this blog are getting sick and damn tired of business as usual. Maybe something good will come from this sordid tale. For example, as Anon 9:47 wrote, “throw the bums out.”. That seems like a good start to me.

    If the BOCS don’t investigate Peacor’s remarks about Candland, and fire her if she said it, the BOCS have to realize the message they are sending to Candland, and all his supporters, is that Candland deserved to be abused, talked down to and dismissed. That it doesn’t matter whether she said it. By extension that will be what the BOCS are telling the citizens. That they are a-holes and liars for daring to question the budget and its creator, Peacor. Nice, very nice

    Well time to start organizing and getting the petitions. The Tea Party and other liberty folks are up for a fight and are highly motivated to do the hard work.

    We can actually turn this into a national test case.
