I had to laugh at the article in our local paper titled “Principi says let’s move on (1/25/11).” County Supervisor Frank Principi (Woodbridge – Democrat) wanted Virginians to ignore the eminently successful efforts against illegal aliens which have made our streets safer and reduced the hemorrhage of cash to support people who shouldn’t be here. Really Frank? As a liberal Democrat he would like for all of us to forget how effective Republican leadership has been over the past four years. The Prince William County Board of Supervisors courageously stood up to an unruly and vocal mob chanting “Si se puede” (Yes we can) and struck a blow against illegal immigration in our county. The “Rule of Law Resolution” has been one of the many successes made possible largely because Republicans outnumber Democrats on the County Board of Supervisors by a ratio of 3 to 1. If you want to understand what happens when that ratio is reversed and Democrats are in charge visit Detroit.
The “Rule of Law Resolution” was not only the right thing to do, but its implementation was virtually free and it saved millions. One has to wonder if Supervisor Principi bothered to read the study by the University of Virginia. Did Supervisor Principi notice the accolades by the America’s Promise Alliance, CCN, and Moody’s. Prince William County is a great place to live and residents have jobs because people like Supervisor Frank Principi are not in charge. As long as Prince William County voters support candidates who offer solutions with a proven track record of success we will remain the #1 county in Virginia, the #1 tourist destination, and we will enjoy a higher quality of life with lower taxes.
Like the famous comedian caught cheating by his wife Supervisor Principi is asking us “Are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?” The voters of Prince William County have been blessed but the reason is not unfathomable as most Democrats would have you believe. We have eight County Supervisors and six of them are Republicans. That’s why we were listed recently on the CNN/Money list as the 17th best county of 3,143 counties in America to live. We can see sir.
