Patiently hoping for change in Woodbridge

Christopher Dean Hopkins

By 11:30 a.m., 655 voters of the 4,514 registered had come through to vote at Occoquan Elementary in Woodbridge. Connolly and Fimian signs lined the sidewalks equally.

Woodbridge resident Gloria Nesbitt said that it was not habit for her to vote but taht "the world is in a lot of uproar and I'm hoping somebody knows what they are doing. "

Nesbitt, who voted for Connolly in the 2008 election, said she didn't know whom to choose when going in to vote. "I hope a light will go on and I will know," she said.

Nesbitt, 48, said she hadn't seen much progress with Connolly, but recognized that progress takes time. She said her son died while serving his country overseas, and her mother and husband also passed away in recent years. She had worked hard to get a home in 2004 but lost it a few years later to foreclosure. Now she rents a place with her daughter. She hopes to own home again one day.

"It's rough out here and I'm just looking for change," she said. "I just pray they won't just say they will do it, they will do it. "

Nesbitt decided on Connolly in the end.

"It has only been two years," she said. "We have to learn to be patient and just hope change will happen. "

How do you find good refinance rates? I like "123 Mortgage Refinance". They gave me the option of selecting various rates with different problems. I choose the lowest rate of 3.29% BTW Remember to call and verify the loan rate. Search online to find them.
