Comstock Understands National Security

Candidate Geary with wife

On 9-11, I attended three ceremonies throughout Loudoun County honoring and remembering those 2,977 souls that we lost on that day of infamy. Our Congresswoman, Barbara Comstock was also there with us at ceremonies in Lovettsville, Purcellville and Leesburg. It reminded me that Barbara has been working on these issues regarding the terrorist threats we face, since that very day when a best friend of hers was on the plane that hit the Pentagon. … Continue Reading

shorthillmeeting

It’s been a little over two weeks since the Commission Permit for the proposed AT&T facility on Short Hill was overruled by the Board of Supervisors. This is just about the right time to reflect on some important conclusions and observations.

I would like to thank the many citizens who came out and got involved, Catoctin Planning Commissioner Gene Scheel for sounding the alarm and my fellow Board Members for supporting me in denying this application. … Continue Reading

Opinion: Terrorism, Debt, and China: Oh My!

July 7, 2016 Op-ed, Opinion Comments Off on Opinion: Terrorism, Debt, and China: Oh My!
blueridge2.jpg

– By Nick Reid

world can be a very dangerous place sometimes, especially for a nation state such as the United States. Although danger is always present, the number and severity of dangers facing the United States has increased drastically in the seven and a half years of President Obama’s reign. Without any further ado, it’s time to take a look at the three most dangerous threats to the United States right now:

China: Known as the People’s Republic of China (which is, by the way, neither a republic nor governed in the interests of the people), the PRC, or just China, this Asiatic power poses a critical and sophisticated threat to the United States. Despite considerable economic ties, decades of diplomatic relations, and public cooperation, China remains hostile to US interests. Much like Japan in the decades leading up to WWII, China sees itself as future lord of Asia, a destiny which the Chinese government and military see as blocked by the presence of the US military in Asia. Since the beginning of the modernization of its vast military, China has focused on developing ship-killer missiles and satellite-killer missiles, designed to cripple the US military by destroying the bulk of American communications systems and aircraft carriers early in any potential conflict. During the Obama presidency, however, China’s actions have grown more brazen than developments of these weapons, as Chinese troops restrict freedom of the seas in Asia through new island bases. Did I mention that China is also a nuclear power?

The National Debt: Now, while the other threats on this list threaten America and our interests from the outside, our ballooning national debt threatens to corrode us from the inside. During the Obama presidency, this debt has almost doubled, standing at around $19 Trillion today. And the borrowing of money to fund the ever-expanding leviathan of the Federal Government has gotten so pervasive that 46 cents of every dollar spent by the Federal Government is borrowed money. The amount of debt racked up so far is so high that soon the interest on the debt alone will become the single largest expense by the Federal Government yearly. If the debt continues to grow, then the United States economy will collapse much like the economy of debt-laden Greece.

Islamic Terrorism: It comes in many forms, including, but by no means limited to: ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Al Shabab, the Taliban, Hamas, and Hezbollah. And although different factions clash with each other from time to time about details, the ultimate goal is clear: to spread political Islam, which uses the religion of Islam as a framework for government. This involves the subjugation of women, the murder of homosexuals, the destruction of all things deemed “un-Islamic” (mainly Western forms of entertainment and education), and the destruction or conversion of non-Muslims. Although this motley assortment of religious fanatics and cold-blooded killers that seem to be characters straight from a Mad Max movie is currently weak and disorganized, Islamic terrorism presents the greatest potential to grow as a threat if left unchecked. For example, under President Obama’s (ineffectual) watch, ISIS has emerged out of relative obscurity to destroy the fragile peace the Americans had created in Iraq, becoming the most spectacularly successful (in a morbid sense of the word) Islamic terrorist group in terms of territory held. ISIS, in particular, shows how rapidly Islamic terror can spread if not countered by strong military action to stop its spread (which the Iraqis most certainly did not provide). This speed and ease of spread is why Islamic terrorism makes this list.

This is, by no means, an exhaustive list of the threats facing the United States today. However, these threats, unless checked, will only continue to grow. This election season may very well decide whether this happens or not.

Metro Money Mess Pushing West

July 6, 2016 Op-ed, Opinion 2 comments
blueridge2.jpg

– By Delegate Dave LaRock (R-33rd)

A local paper recently quoted Loudoun Board Chair Phyllis Randall as saying that in her observation “some of the concerns raised by the people who opposed Metro are coming to fruition.” Chair Randall’s statement is quite accurate. I, along with many others, vocally opposed the terms Loudoun signed on to. The yet-to-be resolved concerns which were brought to the previous board over and over again are mostly financial, but will impact future development in Loudoun.

While Loudoun’s Metro commitment is referred to by some as an investment, that is a stretch. Loudoun County committed $268 million to build our shiny new Silver Line onto the existing Metro system, which is almost completely worn out. If Metro were a privately-owned business, it would have declared bankruptcy long ago. Instead it hobbles along, becoming less safe and less popular by the day.
By opting to partner on the Metro extension into Loudoun, taxpayers became a party to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Compact. That obligates Loudoun County to pay an unspecified share of the Metro funding starting when the Silver Line becomes operational in the County. The County’s estimate when it opted into the project in 2012 was for WMATA payments to be $17 million in FY2019 growing to $36 million in FY2045, a 27-year total of $721 million.

Where will Loudoun County get all that money? For now, station-area real estate taxes, and gas tax revenue. But those revenue streams won’t scratch the surface when the big ticket items hit, such as money for ongoing operation, money for long-overdue bottom-up system rebuild, money to pay for the $2.5-billion-dollar unfunded employee pension liability, and money to build the critically needed multi-billion-dollar new tunnel under the Potomac. Like it or not, these huge liabilities came with the package.

In preparation for Metro development, Loudoun County has initiated a plan to spend heavily on roads to accommodate Metro-related development, some of that development will take place on Dulles Airport property and be exempt from proffers. It is very important to note that in Virginia, with very few exceptions, roads typically are funded by VDOT or by land developers, not with county dollars.
Departing from that trend and taking on the role of developer, on April 5th of this year, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors adopted the FY17 budget, including the FY 2017-2022 Capital Improvement Program (CIP). Capital improvements include buses, school buildings, equipment, etc. Approximately 38 percent of the CIP’s projected spending for the next six fiscal years is on transportation projects; this amounts to about $723 million. Twelve projects in the FY2017-2022 CIP are directly related to improving access to Metrorail or to non-Silver-Line WMATA capital projects, accounting for $263 million, about 36 percent of all transportation spending. Those twelve projects saw a nearly 200 percent increase in funding from the previous year’s CIP, when they were slated for only $89 million.
The twelve projects also do not include three additional Metrorail-station-area projects whose funding authorization was completed last year – another $165 million. These CIP figures also do not take into account the money the County is spending on Dulles Rail construction costs, or operations and maintenance subsidies Loudoun taxpayers will be obligated to when Metro begins service to Loudoun County.

Loudoun County is in a tight spot. Paying for the Silver Line construction by taxing the developers who are profiting from Metro development is better than taxing people who never use the Metro. But by allowing more rezoning and development in exchange for proffers, you perpetuate a cycle which always leaves taxpayers on the hook. Well-established trends in Loudoun and elsewhere reveal that rezoning and the eventual new development create demand for new services and infrastructure which proffers never fully cover. By pushing forward with massive new development to provide revenue to Loudoun and riders to Metro, as a county we are digging ourselves deeper into a financial hole.

Loudoun supervisors see cash proffers as a valuable source of revenue to address the impacts of new development, impacts which would otherwise be funded through general tax revenue. I agree that counties should be allowed to protect taxpayers by accepting proffers that are fair and allowed by law. The newly revised proffer law just passed by the General Assembly allows that. Loudoun favors having broader discretion to accept proffers in exchange for rezoning to allow higher density development.
Metro has a well-established history of unmet ridership goals and funding shortages. Elected leaders are not likely to admit a mistake like committing to partner on Metro under horrible terms; instead they tend to push forward decisions which try to fix past mistakes, in this case by seeking to stimulate proffer income and Metro ridership with new development.

The easiest, but not the best, way to make Metro in Loudoun County appear successful is to ignore the promises made four years ago in the run up to opting in, promises that new development would be non-residential and be confined to the eastern part of the County. Loudoun County taxpayers should not be the backstop for the Metro money mess nor should we allow our beautiful rural countryside to be overrun with development pushing west trying to proffer our way out of the hole.

Delegate Dave LaRock was elected in November 2013 to represent the 33rd House District, including parts of Loudoun, Clarke and Frederick Counties, and the towns of Leesburg (partial), Purcellville, Berryville, Lovettsville, Round Hill, Hamilton and Hillsboro. LaRock serves on the Transportation Committee, the Science and Technology Committee and the Education Committee. Dave and his wife, Joanne, have lived in Loudoun for 29 years, building a successful family-owned general contracting business. The LaRocks reside near Hamilton with Laura, Abby and John, the youngest of their seven children.

Paving Paradise To Put in Parking Lots?

June 1, 2016 Dear Editor, Opinion Comments Off on Paving Paradise To Put in Parking Lots?
Loudoun County Seal Color

Two issues that will affect the very character of Loudoun County, will be discussed and voted on at the June 15 Board of Supervisors Public Hearing.
In the Rural and Transition Areas of the county, when subdivisions and Rural Hamlets have been built, a certain amount of land has, by zoning regulation, been set aside as “Common Open Space.” Uses in the past have been limited to those which would keep this in agricultural or passive recreation uses, i.e. barns, trails, picnic areas or community gardens. A new zoning amendment, (ZOAM 2015-0006), is proposing 36 new uses in these open spaces, ostensibly to increase their economic viability. While many of these uses would not adversely affect the character of the area, many others allow for large scale development of breweries, wineries and recreation facilities etc., some with parking areas for up to 400 cars. Surely a closer look and much more citizen input is needed before permitting these sweeping changes! … Continue Reading

Isn’t Loudoun Better Than This?

May 10, 2016 Dear Editor, Opinion Comments Off on Isn’t Loudoun Better Than This?
blueridge2

More than forty years I have watched a rising tide of development flowing from the east across Loudoun. Once it was thought the western mountains would be spared the flood. Now it seems the forces ready to pave over Loudoun are rising ever higher. Must this deluge reach even to the mountain top and leave its ugly scar?

Our congregation has a church home in the peaceful valley between the Short Hill and Blue Ridge Mountains. Easter mornings before the sun peeks over the mountain, we gather on the Raymond Farm next door to our church. Then we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection as we watch the sun rise above the Short Hill. But AT&T’s planned data dump on Short Hill Mountain may become an eye sore we view for all Easters to come. Isn’t Loudoun better than this?
