Birds Of A Feather, I Suppose

By Greg L | 8 March 2015 | Prince William County | 9 Comments

Potomac District Supervisor Maureen Caddigan can’t be bothered to actually support Republican candidates in Prince William County, but she can be bothered to participate on the host committee for a fundraiser for Bill Howell that’s being organized by a convicted felon.  If you’re tired of this never-ending embarrassment from her and live in that district, would you please consider running against her this cycle?

Caddigan has yet to be seen out on the campaign trail for a Republican candidate in the county, but she regularly endorses Democrats running against Republicans.  Perhaps having her break her well-established pattern in order to support one of the biggest forces pushing for tax hikes in 2004, 2007 and then the largest tax hike in Virginia history in 2013 shouldn’t surprise many, but to make this painfully clear during an election season is rather brash.  Is she that confident that no one cares about her outrageous behavior and will happily vote for her?

If so, I suppose that headlining an event sponsored by Paul Milde is at least another demonstration of consistent behavior - even if that consistency is dramatically troubling.  Milde is a convicted drug dealer who also plead guilty to attempted burglary, and who as the immediate past president of the VRE board helped to hike commuter fares.  As chairman of the regional landfill board, he implemented new user fees on landfill use and worked with Democrat Tim Kaine on a scheme to get the Commonwealth to buy Crow’s Nest Peninsula at a cost to Stafford County taxpayers of $16 million.  Add on a long string of judgments, liens and unpaid taxes and you get a perfect example of precisely who you don’t want to have in political power.

In other words, Milde is precisely the kind of politician you’d expect to be aligned with Bill Howell and Maureen Caddigan.

I’m hoping that the contribution to Howell’s campaign effort isn’t coming at the expense of county taxpayers, which was the case when county taxpayers were funding her re-election efforts in 2012.  Back then she was plastering “Supervisor Maureen Caddigan” anywhere they could engrave it — on a brick at the Marine Corps Museum, on a plaque at the Hylton Center, and on stones at county libraries — all at taxpayer expense.  Of course we haven’t seen her campaign reimburse county taxpayers for those campaign expenditures, nor have we seen amendments on her campaign finance reports disclosing these expenditures as the law requires.

It’s hard to figure out what’s more troubling, that Caddigan can’t seem to actually support Republicans in the same county in which she resides, or whether Bill Howell is so desperate that he absolutely needs criminals to serve on the host committee for his fundraisers.

Either way, some housecleaning is seriously in order.

    I’m no supporter of Paul Milde per se, but you are conveniently eliding the felony drug dealing conviction was in 1986 (when he was 18) and the burglary misdemeanor conviction was in 1995 (when he was 27).

    Does it really matter what age this occurred? Something’s you can excuse but these convictions you can’t.

    There’s no “right” answer to that. And anyone that tells you otherwise has difficulty accepting anyone’s opinion but their own.

    Let’s see…arrested and convicted for a felony at 18 and 9 years later another conviction? Not someone I’d want in office.

    I do not know Paul Milde.
    However, from the article below, it appears his life went through a positive transformation.

    “I wish we had more people who could point back to a point 20 years earlier and how it turned their life around.”

    “…say his rehabilitation shows character.”

    But then you can see how far an apple falls from its tree. Perhaps it’s learned behavior - http://potomaclocal.com/2012/11/29/charges-filed-in-beating-case/

    We need to get rid of all the RINOs Maureen Caddigan, Glendell Hill, Martin Nohe and Corey Stewart this election. We have a chance. Now lets get it done.

    You better hang on to your RINO’s. You’re losing too many elections with those “true conservatives”. How about just putting up somone who can appeal to those of us who have no use for liberals or whatever the far right is calling itself these days.

    How about putting up candidates that have the “peoples” interest in mind instead of “special” interests?
