Delegate Kathy Byron (R-Campbell) introduced HJ 715 to amend our state constitution. If ratified, the amendment would ensure that tax dollars are not used to fund abortions in Virginia. The proposed amendment states:
“No taxes or other revenues of the Commonwealth may be used to pay for abortions, provided that nothing herein shall prevent the use of such funds to preserve the life of the mother.”
The Eastern District Court selected a series of legally indefensible redistricting modules that attempts to give Democrats an advantage at every turn. The modules selected by the Court target senior Republicans, myself included, without a substantive basis in the law

FCRC will hold an “unofficial” meeting during 7:30 – 8:45 PM on Wednesday, January 23, at the James Madison High School Auditorium, 2500 James Madison Drive, Vienna, VA 22181.
(See the map at the end of the article for where to park and enter the school.)
Meeting check-in will start at 6:45 PM. Light snacks and beverages will be served but NOT dinner.
The meeting is a make-up for the official meeting scheduled for January 15 that was canceled because of school closing.
The meeting is “unofficial” because the near-term date for the meeting does not allow sufficient time for the 10-day meeting call required by FCRC’s Plan of Organization. As an “unofficial” meeting, FCRC will postpone any votes that might arise to the regularly scheduled February meeting. Requirements for meeting attendance will also be waived.
The reasons for holding the “unofficial” meeting are to: 1) provide information about the upcoming special election in the 86th Delegate District; 2) update FCRC members about plans for developing the party and supporting 2019 Republican candidates; and 3) gain the benefit of the presentation on communist / socialist influence on education originally scheduled for the meeting that was canceled.
Meeting Presentation: ACAT Exposes Communist / Socialist Influence on Education. The Anticommunism Action Team (ACAT) will review how communist/socialist ideology and tactics have adversely influenced American education.
The Anticommunism Action Team is an independent, unaffiliated grassroots group of concerned citizens. Its mission is “to discredit communist ideology and counter communist influence here and abroad.”
Led by Chris Wright, a lawyer and liberty activist, the group offers experienced speakers, news updates, opinion articles, videos, an informative website, and even a college course—all focused on exposing “the false allure of communism.”

As you know if you watched his address on Tuesday night, the President made a compelling case for building a barrier on our southern border. We currently have 2000 migrants crossing that border illegally every day and, if caught, demanding asylum, often on specious grounds.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, in 2014, 63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported using at least one welfare program as compared to 35 percent of native-headed households. Compared to native households, non-citizen households have much higher use of food programs (45 percent vs. 21 percent for natives) and Medicaid (50 percent vs. 23 percent for natives). In addition, murders, extortion, and human trafficking (i.e., slavery) committed by such gangs as MS-13 are both brutal and widespread.
Clearly, something must be done, but the new radical Democrat Party led by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want no part of fixing the problem.
Mr. Trump’s request for $5.7 billion to build a part of the barrier represents 0.13% of the overall budget of over $4 Trillion. Therefore, it’s not about the money,
A group of voters in Mason District have filed a petition seeking the removal of Fairfax County School Board member Sandra Evans. The petition garnered 1307 signatures, representing more than 10% of the voters in Mason District. The petition seeks Evans’ removal from the School Board:
For neglect of duty, misuse of office, or incompetence in the performance of duties when that neglect of duty, misuse of office, or incompetence in the performance of duties has a material adverse effect upon the conduct of the office” per Virginia Code Section 24.2-332.
The petition states Ms. Evans ignored the FCPS survey of students and community that soundly rejected (56% No, 35% Yes, 8% NA) a name change for J.E.B. Stuart H.S. In addition, Ms. Evans would not even consider “Stuart” as a proposed new name but moved to rename the school “Justice High School,” disregarding the voters’ second and third place choices, as well.
Ms. Evans announced yesterday that she will not run for reelection to the School Board seat she currently occupies in next year’s County-wide elections. The Fairfax County Republican Committee supports both the petition
For Immediate Release
Fairfax County Republican Committee objects to Fairfax County Board’s fiscal irresponsibility
Board refusal to support Republican-led comprehensive pension reform lessens County’s ability to provide services to its citizens
FAIRFAX, VA, Dec 6, 2018 – The Fairfax County Republican Committee (FCRC) applauds the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors’ passage of one pension reform at Tuesday night’s Board meeting but denounces the Board’s refusal to support all of the proposed reforms championed by Republican supervisors Pat Herrity and John Cook.
The Board voted unanimously to eliminate the pre-Social Security supplement for new employees, offering them the option of offsetting that removal by advancing future retirement income.
However, the Board failed to raise the retirement age from 55, thus leaving unsustainable pension costs in place. This takes money from County services and puts taxpayers at risk for future tax hikes. Supervisors Cook, Smyth, and Herrity voted to raise the age to 60.
The Board also voted to maintain the “rule of 85” (age plus years of service) by a vote of 7-3 with Supervisors Cook, Smyth, and Herrity voting against this policy. The Board voted 5-5 (tie votes fail) to increase the salary averaging period to 5 years from 3, with Supervisors Smyth, Cook, Herrity, Gross, and Chairman Bulova voting in favor of the change. Finally, the Board voted to eliminate the additional retirement allowance, which increases the retirement annuity by 3%, by a vote of 6-4. Supervisors Smyth, Foust, Herrity, Cook, Gross and Chairman Bulova voted in favor of the modification. The changes approved will go into effect for employees hired after July 1, 2019 and will not impact current employees.
“FCRC appreciates the relentless work by Republican Supervisors Herrity and Cook to overhaul Fairfax County government’s unsustainable program but is very disappointed the full Board of Supervisors did so little to rein in this budget busting retirement program,” said Tim Hannigan, FCRC chairman. “The Board of Supervisors’ fiscal irresponsibility continues to adversely affect taxpayers and services, and deserves serious attention by county residents.”
