In her 4/24/18 Bulova Byline email, County Chairman Sharon Bulova’s statements on the proposed FY2019 real estate tax increase are misleading. Her proposed FY2019 rate of $1.15 per $100 of assessed value omits the stormwater rate. When the stormwater rate is included the proposed FY2019 rate is actually $1.1825.
She states that new budget includes a 2-cent increase in the real estate tax rate but this omits the additional tax increase due to the 2.2% increase in average residential assessments. The effective rate increase when assessments and the additional stormwater rate increase (1/4 cent) are included is 4.7 cents, not 2 cents.
The typical Fairfax County homeowner’s real estate tax bill will increase by $258, a 4.2% increase, while Loudoun County cut its real estate tax rate by 4 cents.

From The Bull Elephant, by Andrew Nicholson, Chairman of the 10th Congressional Republican Committee:
“On Tuesday night the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee unanimously passed the following resolution on the Budget and Medicaid Expansion:
Whereas, the debate over Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion in Virginia’s budget is causing unneeded uncertainty, controversy, and delays to the approval of a budget, and
Whereas, the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee opposes a shutdown of the Commonwealth of Virginia government; now, therefore be it,
Resolved, the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee supports the immediate passage of a state budget without Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion; and
Resolved, that the Chairman of the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee shall cause copies of this resolution to be disseminated to all Republican members of the General Assembly, and to the media.
Jeff Dove has made history in Virginia’s 11th Congressional District.
Dove, Republican Congressional Candidate for VA-11, officially clinched the Republican nomination. Jeff Dove will now be able to spend his time and resources on defeating career insider Rep. Gerry Connolly.
Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam vetoed a bill that would’ve banned localities from adopting so-called sanctuary city measures, which shields illegal aliens from deportation if they report crimes. That was the selling pitch, by the way. What it has become is a safe space for people who shouldn’t be here, coupled with local authorities inhibiting the enforcement of federal immigration laws.
Governor Northam vetoed seven bills on Monday that had passed the House and Senate on party-line votes. Two of the bills that Northam vetoed would have prevented voter fraud and improved voter integrity in Virginia. As a result, Virginia citizens will be forced to put up with a risk of voter fraud in future elections, in spite of the Virginia legislature’s efforts to restore voter integrity.
From The Bull Elephant, March 17, 2018:
Tim Hannigan is the new Chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee after 670 delegates voted. In the raw vote count he won 70% to 30%, in the weighted vote he won 60% to 40%, a blowout, (similar to what happened to UVA last night). After the vote tally candidate Mike Ginsberg graciously asked the delegates to elect Tim Hannigan to the chairmanship by acclamation which the delegates were happy to do.
