experience With our county rapidly growing and changing, our current Board of Supervisors has proven time and time again that it is out of touch with the realities that you and I face each day. Through my experience growing up in a middle-class family and working on Capitol Hill creating public policy, I under
Working with stakeholders to guarantee that we are building communities that include adequate schools, adequate green space, and diverse standard of living options where our residents can work, shop, and enjoy entertainment is key to balancing growth. This may be done by creating mixed use development and incentive programs.
We must work with our state and congressional delegations to guarantee that state and federal dollars for substance abuse and wellness programs are flowing through Prince William County. This will allow us to create programs to address such issues and make PWC a model in how to handle these issues, particularly the opioids crisis.
Roughly, the school board is funded at about 57% of the revenue sharing agreement but we must determine if the areas of funding for schools in certain areas are sufficient. With regards to infrastructure, it is not enough to build new schools but we must guarantee that we are allocating funding to modernize current schools.
In Prince William, we must look at our budget and determine how much of those funds already come to the Eastern end of the county. Rather than assuming we should alter our taxation measures, we should determine if the Eastern end of the County receives its fair share of the current revenue.
immediate need is increasing the number of communities served by our local bus system. We must also increase the level of efficiency for how our bus system operates so residents can get in and around PWC by bus within a reasonable time. If we increase our transit efficiency, our residents may consider bus options which will decrease congestion.
