More Democrats criticize Kaine's budget

Rosalind Helderman

Since posting earlier today about Democratic concerns in Fairfax County with how Gov. Tim Kaine's proposed budget would affect Virginia's largest jurisdiction and other parts of Northern Virginia, we've been alerted to a couple more public statements on the issue.

Keep in mind, these are members of Kaine's own party. The real fun starts with the Republicans.

Newly elected Del. Scott Surovell has posted an analysis on his blog, The Dixie Pig, declaring the budget an "attack on the middle class."

In Fairfax City, council member Dan Drummond declared on his blog that Kaine's budget is no good for the city and wrote, "I hope it gets shot down."

Meanwhile, a somewhat more charitable posting from Democratic Del. Albert Pollard in Northern Neck. In an item entitled "To Kill a Budget," Pollard writes, "those who are leveling the criticism have yet to see the stark choices further cuts will make."

Still, Pollard writes, "I am inclined to vote against Governor Kaine's budget."
