Slush Funds

It’s the second time in a week I’ve posted something here, which is highly unusual for me, but something big is happening this Tuesday.

First, this is primarily for residents of Prince William County, but others may nevertheless be interested in what’s been going on here.

I have often expressed disdain for the “discretionary” (I like to call them “slush”) funds provided to members of our County Board of Supervisors, but recent information has surfaced that sheds a whole new light on what some of our locally elected officials have been doing with those funds.

And, I’m disappointed to report, that it appears that some members have been using these taxpayer dollars for personal benefit — as they vote to raise our taxes here.

I would strongly encourage you to visit sheriffofnottinghampwc.blogspot.com to learn more, check the facts, and come to your own conclusions about what is going on.

The worst offenders need to be held accountable. However, with respect to stopping this from happening in the future, there will be a vote this Tuesday by the Board itself to put an end to their slush funds.

I’d encourage you to email or phone your Supervisor to let them know how you feel about this issue and how you expect them to vote on Tuesday. You can get contact info for each Supervisor at the county website.

Thanks for your time and consideration, and for being a partner in our efforts to make our community, Commonwealth, and country a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

-JMF.
