Local Pork Barrell Spending

Anyone observe local and state unnecessary spending?

We are all pinching our pennies while:

GMU president and basketball coach are given a membership at a private club (Country Club of Fairfax)

Gas guzzle buses at Burke Centre VRE station that were intended to help riders get to and from the train station from different neighborhoods due to the lack of parking are still being used (by very very few) after the new parking garage is up and running.

Anyone else. BRING IT ON.

OK...no one replied to your original (http://www.fairfaxunderground.com/forum/read/2/144510.html) post, so you felt it was necessary to try again?

You'd think he'd at least come up with some new material.
