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 […]
Here’s a quick arithmetic question for you: does two equal zero?
Apparently, The Prince William County School system thinks it does.
Despite all the assurances that Republicans made that they’d stop President Obama’s ridiculously detrimental amnesty for illegal aliens and that they’d stop the horrible impacts that ObamaCare is delivering on us, they’ve done nothing but allow these programs to continue while the federal budget inches ever-closer to bankruptcy. Despite all the assurances Republicans made to […]
It isn’t every day I get reports of campaign operatives giving dark warnings to people about how the candidate they’re not supporting is going to get utterly demolished by negative opposition research, but who then immediately turn around and say that the candidate they are supporting is going to offer them a patronage job after […]
Corey Stewart is all in a tizzy that he might not be able to use a primary election for his re-nomination, to the point he’s saying all sorts of utterly ridiculous things to the Washington Post, and trashing the Republicans he is asking to vote for him. You’d think this guy never faced a convention before in […]
I’ve been eagerly awaiting a response from PWC Chairman Corey Stewart regarding the revelations about his endorsed candidate’s shocking antics. Does Corey think that threatening the children of combat-wounded veterans represents his kind of politics? Is he proud to show up at events wearing Steve Chapman’s lapel sticker knowing that Chapman cheated on his pregnant wife with someone […]
If you ever had any doubt about the veracity of the story about Woodbridge Supervisor candidate Steve Chapman cheating on his wife in order to have an affair with someone else’s wife, this should remove every last bit of it. Not many campaigns in my memory ever seem to involve something called an “Affidavit of […]
Answer below the fold…
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, […]
I especially appreciate the lyrics about being a high school dropout, since this was a question during his last campaign that involved a considerable amount of discussion.
If you ever wanted to run for office and have PWC Chairman Corey Stewart be the first one in the room to put on your lapel sticker as an endorsement, here’s a list of the things you might want to consider doing in order to win that coveted prize:
There are people who do incredibly stupid things. Then there are people that do incredibly stupid things and immediately decide to run for public office, apparently figuring that nobody would ever bother to follow the still-warm trail of breadcrumbs back to their stupidity. Fortunately there are other people out there who as a public service […]
In what may be the most brilliant political move in local political history, it appears that PWCGOP Chairman Bill Card somehow neglected to file the requests on behalf of incumbent local elected officials for primaries to decide who the nominees will be in those races. With the filing deadline for primary elections having passed, as […]
As PWCS puts out their list of important programs that might face cuts in order to balance Dr. Walt’s ridiculously $17 million unbalanced budget, some folks out there probably aren’t going to overlook a few of the utterly ridiculous “strategic programs” that we’re in danger of having to cut. Like these two:
Budget Award Application
Government Finance […]
Seriously, this guy is running for office and posting this on facebook?
Heaven help us all.
