Supervisor Cook's Race-Bating Inaugural

FCDC Chair Scott Surovell, has come out swinging against Virginia's newly inaugurated Supervisor, Republican John Cook.

Well, Cook has spoken. He spoke at his swearing in ceremony. You can watch it here. The sheepskin has come off of the wolf.

It’s amazing how easily The Washington Post Editorial Board was so thoroughly spun. This speech was dripping with the same Republican Snake Oil that we’ve been listening to for twenty years. It is full of “you can have your cake and eat it too” promises and nice sounding sloganeering with no actual REVENUE to back it up. It is exactly what the voters rejected on November 4, 2008.

Road to Richmond (and Washington) Breakfast

Buoyant Fairfax Democrats under the leadership of Scott Surovell gathered in force at the West Springfield Country Club for their 2009 Legislative Breakfast Sunday 4 January 2009. Taking it from the top, candidates for Governor were prominent: Brian Moran, present and working the room; Terry McAuliffe (who sponsored two tables), being represented by his wife; and Creigh Deeds, sending his regards, was prudently at two other functions elsewhere in Virginia. A swarm of elected Democrats at every level showed up, as did several hopeful candidates, representatives from labor unions, and uncounted worker bees, like me. The theme of the day was a combination of gleeful satisfaction coupled with a sobering realization that now it’s time to get back to work— and, since it’s Virginia, prepare to do it all over again beginning with the special election to replace Gerry Connolly with Sharon Bulova as Chair of the Fairfax Board of Supervisors on 3 February, followed by the regular elections in November for state offices.
