South Fairfax County seeks board seat

By Washington Post editors

Leaders in southern Fairfax County are pushing to have another seat added to the county's Board of Supervisors, the Washington Examiner reports.

The South Fairfax Chamber of Commerce wants the county to create a new district in the Lorton area, now in the Mount Vernon District. Chamber President Tim Rizer said that many of the county's districts have grown too large, reducing supervisors' ability to address residents' concerns.

Fairfax County last added a seat during the 1990 redistricting. There are now nine members representing individual districts and a 10th member elected at large.

As a resident of "South Fairfax," this idea strikes me as a complete waste of money.
