Fairfax Supervisors Back Cuccinelli’s War on EPA

A central act in AG Ken Cuccinelli's schtick is blaming the EPA for everything bad in the world: high electricity prices, climate change conspiracies, the heartbreak of psoriasis -- you name it.  It's who he is.  

But why would the Democratic-controlled Fairfax County Board of Supervisors aid and abet him in this act -- at a time when he is running to become the #1 Tea Party Governor in America?  

You better ask them.  The Board and Cuccinelli just won a lawsuit against EPA on the issue of protecting aquatic life in a local creek.

Not surprisingly, Cuccinelli characterized the case by employing his favorite rhetorical technique -- LYING:

"EPA was literally treating water itself - the very substance the Clean Water Act was created to protect - as a pollutant."

Really?  Well, here's my challenge to Kookinelli and his supporters: please read through the hundreds of pages of EPA's regulatory decision on this matter -- and show me where they declare water to be a pollutant.  

Sharon Bulova, Janet Oleszek and Megan McLaughlin: A Great Combo for...


Any further questions? If so, there are two more images you should see on the "flip." :)

Video: Tim Kaine, Sharon Bulova, Dave Marsden Make the Case for...

Here's some video from yesterday afternoon's highly successful event for Janet Oleszek. First, here's Tim Kaine explaining why having a former School Board member on the County (or city) Board is highly beneficial. According to Kaine, education is the "single largest line item" in the Fairfax County budget, and having someone who knows that budget inside and out can be very helpful. Also, Kaine says that the relationship between the School Board and County Board is almost always a tense one, but that this tension gets "mitigated and lessened...if you put a talented School Board member on the [County] Board." Finally, Kaine predicted that this could be an extremely close election in an "off-off year," which means that "the marginal impact you make...is greater this year than in any other election." Which is why we need Democrats to get out there and help Janet Oleszek (and others) win this election!

Next, turn to the "flip" for Fairfax County Board Chair Sharon Bulova praising Janet Oleszek and urging her election to the Board of Supervisors, so that "education stays the #1 priority in Fairfax County." In addition, Bulova argues that Janet Oleszek has been a leader in maintaining the high quality of life that makes Fairfax attractive to corporations and to people thinking about doing business and/or living there. According to Bulova, "[Janet Oleszek] understands schools, she understands the budget, she understands making the priorities that we need to invest in the most important thing that we have here in Fairfax County, so we need Janet Oleszek [on the Board]."
