More Metro Mismanagement As McDonnell Moans
I listened to Governor McDonnell bitch and moan about MWAA on the Mark Plotkin show on WTOP yesterday. As pointed out in this disgusting Washington Examiner article about special insider deals and this even more infuriating Washington Post editorial focusing on a $200,000 payment to a guy who DIDN’T get the CEO job, MWAA is a freaking disaster. So instead of driving a harder deal home and demanding reform first, McDonnell and the rest of the Virginia and Loudoun Republican leadership led the charge to sign on the dotted line with these DC-centric bureaucrats without any certainty of real reform.
Sorry, Bob, I don’t buy into your outrage. You don’t sign on to deals with people like this with no surety of reform and then get to whine about it later. And adding two more Virginia MWAA Board members while giving Maryland and DC one more each does nothing to change the balance of power. All that does is expand government, something I thought Republicans were against.
On a side note, I added Unsuck DC Metro to the blogroll. Make it a regular stop on your news rounds to learn more about where your tax dollars are going. What a joke. Thanks 9-0 Loudoun Republican Board of Supervisors.
