Miller, Hugo take look at Bi-County Parkway, health care for 2014

When the General Assembly reconvenes in January, it should come as no surprise that the first thing on state Del. Tim Hugo's (R-40th) agenda is finding a way to block the Bi-County Parkway. Both he and state House Majority Whip Jackson Miller (R-50th) discussed some of their legislative priorities for the 2014 session last week during separate phone interviews.

Anderson, Futrell discuss legislative priorities for 2014

While partisan differences will inevitably show up on the legislative scoreboard between state Del. Rich Anderson (R-51st) and state Del.-elect Mike Futrell (D-2nd), particularly on social issues, the two actually have plenty of overlap in terms of agenda setting for 2014. Both laid out some of their plans during separate interviews last week. In November, Prince William voters elected Anderson to serve his fourth two-year term and cast enough votes on the southeastern end of the county to propel Futrell past state Del. Mark Dudenhefer (R-2) in one of the few defeats of an incumbent across the commonwealth.

Supervisors looking at site management for playing fields

It's been over a year since Gainesville District Supervisor Pete Candland (R) held a town hall meeting about site management for athletic playing fields in western Prince William County. Yet there is still inconsistent usage policies stemming from school to school about who can access what fields and when they can do it.

Odds increase for pool at 12th high school

The chances that the 12th public high school in Prince William County will be the first to include a pool increased with the election of Loree Williams to the School Board. Now that pool proponents claim a suspected 5-3 majority of members on School Board, with the new Woodbridge District member in the majority, the pathways to defeating the pool proposal appear to be slim. While Gainesville District Supervisor Pete Candland (R) said during an interview that he likely will not be able to support the Board of County Supervisors approving a School Board budget that includes funding for the pool, one of the typical swing votes on the BOCS is lining up in the opposite camp.
