Bob Marshall vs. Loudoun GOP
Delegate Bob Marshall dropped quite a bombshell at the Dulles South CPAM meeting last night, reading the Planning Commission an opinion from the AG’s office that the CPAMs could not be voted on without an official map showing VDOT generated cost estimates for needed road improvements.Â He was immediately accosted by former Loudoun BOS Chair Dale Polen-Myers and Sterling District Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio in the hallway, ranting that this was ridiculous and that they could then use this reasoning to stop the Route 50 traffic calming initiative.
Does anyone not believe that Bob Marshall is a conservative Republican?Â Apparently not by LCRC standards.Â What was Delgaudio doing at this hearing in such a prominent role outside of his district?Â Could it be the Shockey connection, who owns land in the area and are his biggest campaign supporters?
The audience of commenters was obviously stacked with developer and engineering company employees, most of whom live outside of the affected area.Â One of the first commenters was from Laurel, Maryland.Â Anyone against the CPAM is painted as a tea sippingÂ fox hunterÂ from the horse country.Â
Bob Marshall is a good man looking out for his constituents and asking for reasonable analysis of the future traffic impacts of huge scale development (which by the way increased from 28,000 units to 33,000 units almost overnight).Â The sitting Republican supervisors are pounding the last nail in their electoral coffin with this mess.
