Taxes To Be Slashed In Six Months!

By Loudoun Insider

Well, I think it’s pretty obvious that there will be a strongly Republican dominated Board of Supervisors in Loudoun County after the upcoming local elections in November.  The new Board will take their seats after the first of the year, which is about six months away.  Since all of them are preaching cutting taxes and reducing spending, I am sure we will see a near immediate plan of action put into place to slash the school budget, layoff county employees, and generally stop spending as much money as possible in all aspects of government. 

Right?  I mean I am actually in favor of much of that, so I am really not complaining.  But the problem nearly always is that the electioneering rhetoric of candidates almost always gets flushed down the drain as soon as they take office and want to push their own agendas.  And the group getting poised to take office is full of people with their own agendas and lots of friends and associates to provide favors to.  Something tells me, as is usual in politics, that little will change with the new Board, other than the special people getting the special favors.  I thnk the rest of us everyday citizens will continue to get screwed day in and day out.  Then we’ll start all over again in 2015 when the Loudoun pendulum swings the other way.  Yipee.

    Very true. There will be some cosmetic changes but the machinery of government and special interests will keep chugging along. Watch out for Buona, he’ll be the worst.

    Where are all the LCRC sheeple telling me I’m all wrong and they will absolutely go through with all of their promises???

    Where is the campaign material saying “If elected I will slash the school budget”? If this is what they intend to do, you would think they would have the backbone to say it.

    Not many of them have many specifics out there yet, but this is the gist of what they’re saying to people. Again, I am all for it, but somehow I doubt they will end up doing so. The last Republican led BOS did absolutely nothing to reign in Hatrick.
