Democrat Jeff McKay Caught Driving Recklessly in County Vehicle: Report

“It’s Clearly Not Acceptable,” Says Pat Herrity

“Fairfax County residents have written to county supervisors complaining about how a county employee is using a county vehicle outside of business hours,” WJLA’s Nick Minock reported on Tuesday. “People didn’t know until 7News’ reporting that the county vehicle belongs to one of the most powerful elected government officials in Fairfax County — county chairman Jeff McKay.”

Springfield Supervisor Pat Herrity — currently the lone Republican on the county board — slammed McKay for his personal use of a county vehicle. “It’s clearly not acceptable,” Herrity said on Wednesday. “I don’t think any of our residents are going to find it acceptable. This isn’t good for the county. Our elected officials should be better than that in their use of public assets and in their behavior in public assets. It would concern me if any county employees were taking their county vehicles for personal use and in violation of county policy. And, as with any county employee, it should be looked into and dealt with appropriately.”

On Wednesday, Minock reported that McKay has failed to respond to “repeated requests” for comment on his personal use of a county vehicle. “In March, 7News also uncovered taxpayers are footing the bill for McKay’s car insurance, tolls, gasoline, oil changes, car washes, and more. And McKay doesn’t have to pay an annual car tax even though he sets the car tax rate for everyone else in the county,” Minock noted.
