Fairfax Candidate Relocates Tysons

Bill Turque

Fairfax County Supervisor Joan M. DuBois (R-Dranesville) did a bit of inexplicable redistricting at the McLean Citizens Association debate Tuesday night when she placed Tysons Corner in the Hunter Mill District. DuBois, locked in what is regarded as a tight race against Democrat John Foust, was trying to make the point that Dranesville often has little control over development activity in Tysons because none of it is in the district. The she added and that she sometimes has a difficult time "getting the attention" of Hunter Mill Supervisor Catherine Hudgins (D) on Tysons issues. This would no doubt be true, since nearly all of the mammoth office and commercial center is in Providence District, represented by Linda Q. Smyth (D).

DuBois blanched when informed of the mistake afterward.

"Sorry about that," she said.

We HAVE to crack down on illegal immigration. I've lived here for 15 years and what a decline in my quality of life.

Poor illegal Hispanics lining the roads and 7-11's looking for work like prostitutes. They can't afford to live here so they crowd into houses - with 10 cars on the street and front lawn. Huge amounts of trash.

Along Columbia Pike (near the bike path that I ride) it used to be beautiful. Now there's trash and poor illegal Hispanics passed out along the bike path, hanging in the streets. Look at the Fairfax County Police releases. You'll find weekly incidents right there around Bailey's Crossroads of Hispanics attacking, battering, and raping people. This was NOT happening a few years ago.

It's just a BIG mess. They come here because getting paid $250/week and living 20 to a house is much better than life at home. Free school for their kids. Food stamps (for their American born children). Great infrastructure.

The problem is that if you're one of the unlucky ones living in or near where the new "poverty zones" have been established (and spreading), life is like Tijuana.

What do you expect - we've got third world people on third world wages now living among us. It's expanding and will continue to expand. Life here is better - even if you don't have a job.

Fairfax needs to address this problem. I've considered moving out primarily because I'm getting tired of the 3rd world-like conditions spreading - AND not knowing when it will end or how bad it will get.
