A barely-noticed article on the WJLA website about Prince William County being a “sanctuary jurisdiction” for illegal aliens has ended up uncovering an outrageous abuse of authority by Prince William County CXO Melissa Peacor and Police Chief Stephan Hudson. The 2007 “Rule of Law Resolution” that defined county policy on the issue, a policy publicly […]
BREAKING… YES IT IS TRUE!
WJLA is reporting that Prince William County does not cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and will not comply with criminal or civil immigration detainers. After months of public debate and citizen input, such a change, if true, would represent a dramatic shift in policy done behind closed doors and with no […]
Here’s where things get interesting - in the races that decide what your property taxes should be and how they’re used. Prince William County has some major challenges ahead and we really need some changes if we’re ever going to be able to address them. Here’s how you might be able to make those changes […]
These are the races that are bombarding you with radio and TV ads, stuffing your mailboxes with fliers, and generally doing more to confuse you about the facts with their campaigns than enlightening you on anything. Don’t worry, I’ll sort out this mess for you without subjecting you to sheer partisanship and even if you […]
For the second installment in this series, let’s take a look at the often-underappreciated elections happening in Prince William, ones that have a far larger impact on our lives than some of the legislative races that we like to talk about more often. Those that hold the Sheriff, Clerk of the Court and Commonwealth’s Attorney […]
With so many races on the ballot it might be a little hard to keep track of the candidates for School Board in Prince William County, but given how the Board is in charge of a budget greater than what the Board of County Supervisors spend, it’s arguably among the more import votes you can […]
So much for the Democrat narrative that Republicans are the one’s waging a “war on women”…
In honor of Speaker John Boehner announcing he will retire from Congress, it seems to be a good time to remind people about the motivations of some of those who helped encourage Boehner to make this decision.

As we are graced this weekend with yet another local story of a violent crime perpetrated by illegal alien MS-13 gang members, I can only hope that the questions it raises (once again) are useful as we try to figure out which one of the Republican presidential candidates speaks for citizens, and how many of […]
So the Ashley Madison data hits the interwebs and what do we find? Of course we find a few of our glorious elected officials in Prince William County establishing paid accounts on a website for people trying to cheat on their spouses! It’s actually quite a relief to find so few of them on the list, but […]
When the Prince William Board of County Supervisors met in closed session during their last meeting to discuss what the board’s official response would be to Melissa Peacor instigating a criminal investigation of a private citizen for criticizing her, it failed to identify, as it is required under law, what provision of Virginia law authorized […]
Where does Mrs. Gilkerson, principal of Glenkirk Elementary, reside?
Where do her children attend school?
How does that happen? Does the school administration intend to tell the people who are paying their salaries what their senior employees are doing, and how they will address those questions?
As they come in…
John Guevara narrowly wins in Sully District of Fairfax
Steve Chapman (?!!??) wins in Woodbridge
Michele McQuigg Wins Clerk of the Court
Glen Hill wins Sheriff
Stewart wins BOCS Chairman
Marty Nohe wins in Coles
Ruth Anderson wins in Occoquan
For many of you out there, no political race excites so little of your attention as the Clerk of the Court. Many of you don’t interact with it; heck, many don’t even have a solid idea even of what it does. Despite the understandable ignorance of many, it’s a pretty important job that has the […]
A lot of us were surprised when Marty Nohe was the first to announce that the Ferlazzo school site would indeed be used for a neighborhood elementary school instead of being secretly re-purposed as an opportunity to relocate the Porter Traditional School. For most of us, all we knew of Nohe’s involvement was that he […]
By now everyone should figure out that they’ll likely be voting in a different place than their usual polling location, and that a Republican-run “firehouse primary” has rules that are a little different than a state-run government process. Now all you need to do, if you’re a Republican (yes, it’s a process to determine the […]
If you’re hoping either one of the Republican candidates for Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors gives a damn about illegal immigration, that hope pretty much got demolished at the debate between Chris Crawford and Corey Stewart this past week. When asked about how the county should respond to Youth For Tomorrow trafficking “unaccompanied […]

On March 4th the Prince William County School Board signed off on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Youth for Tomorrow (YFT) and PWCS whereby YFT would fund a central office position entitled “Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist”. The position is posted on the YFT website (as a Student Assistant Specialist) and […]
Yes, the idea of a Bi-County Parkway seems to be rapidly dying, but it’s not done yet. To complete this, we need to get the Board of County Supervisors to remove the project from the County’s comprehensive plan. Supervisor Candland plans to introduce a motion to do just that at the next board […]
Delegate Tim Hugo will have a press conference on Wednesday about the Bi-County Parkway. Having heard nothing about this project for months, I was pretty intrigued. When I asked his staff what this could be about, all I could get about this was “If you oppose the BCP tomorrow will be a good day.”
Now I’m […]
