Speaking of Sh*t
The Loudoun County Sanitation Authority (LCSA) has been cleaned up with the loss of Steve Snow and Eugene Delgaudio from its board (Leesburg Today story here).Â Dimitri Kesari is going to be a little lonely I think.Â John Rocca, who was deposed as Chairman by the Sultan of Sh*t himself, Steve Snow, is back on the board along with Patti Psaris, who is an environmental engineer with (surprise!) relevant experience.Â Both Rocca and Psaris received eight votes (I can only imagine who the no vote was!), while additional new board member Chuck Harris received six votes for his slot.
I guess putting Harris on this board is some sort of consolation prize, although I don’t understand for what.Â Nearly all of the Democratic supervisor candidates complained about Harris’ lack of campaigning for himself or anyone else, with him relying entirely on the Dem supervisor candidates to promote his less than inspired candidacy for Treasurer.
I guess the drive to force sewer into the Transition Area will fall by the wayside now, as it should.Â This makes even more sense with the apparent collapse of the Dulles Metro deal.Â I’ll be perfectly happy with no additional residential growth in this county for the next ten years.Â We’ve already grown beyond our carrying capacity in so many ways.Â Of course a slowdown may not be god for LCSA which has a brand spanking new treatment facility coming on line – another reason it is great to see no supervisors capable of approving land use decisions on the LCSA board.Â
LCSA is alsoÂ planning to spend $89Â millionÂ to increase connectivity to the Fairfax water system since (surprise!) we seem to have outstripped our own water producing capacity (WaPo story here).Â Really?Â Who would have thought that water isn’t infinite?Â Fairfax already supplys Loudoun with 2/3 of its water supply.Â This just great, Loudoun becomes even more dependent on Fairfax County,Â after weÂ already serve Fairfax as a bedroom community (with all the tax burden)Â forÂ its employment centers.Â Good deal for Fairfax!
