County Dems Vote to Raise Taxes (Again)

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted 9 to 1 in favor of higher taxes on Tuesday. The new county budget will raise taxes by 3.4%, amounting to a 45% rise over 10 years. Supervisor Pat Herrity (R-Springfield) was the only “no” vote. Herrity’s alternative budget, rejected by the Democrat majority, held taxes nearly flat — while offering relief to seniors and 3% raises to county teachers.

Following Tuesday’s vote, Herrity joined WMAL’s Larry O’Connor Show to discuss the county’s fiscal condition. “This board does not seem interested in even looking at reductions,” Herrity said. “It’s all about new programs and tax increases. It might be down to where the only thing to do is to look at new members for the board. I think we are going to see the pendulum swing this November, and hopefully that will continue in two years when we have Board of Supervisors elections.”
