I suppose this means that Prince William County is re-thinking their membership in the Virginia Association of Counties that lobbied Richmond using taxpayer dollars to oppose eminent domain reforms. Or perhaps Prince William County won’t be hiring their own lobbyists using taxpayer funds to agitate against personal property rights in Richmond in case VACO’s efforts aren’t sufficiently crushing the rights of the taxpayer:
we “can also take new measures to retake Virginia’s place as the #1 state to do business, expand choice in education, invest in our infrastructure, protect our private property rights from eminent domain, and protect our individual liberties from being assaulted by the federal government.” — Corey Stewart (emphasis added)
At any rate, I welcome this new initiative from the Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. I fully expect legislation at the county level that will implement this dramatic new policy will be initiated at the next meeting of the board on September 18th. It’s so refreshing to see Chairman Corey Stewart finally gasp just how offensive this behavior from our supposedly representative government has been.
Or perhaps I simply misunderstood the significance of this statement and this is nothing more than meaningless and disingenuous campaign blather. I really hope I’m not wrong here.
