Editor: One wonders what Orc infested part of Loudoun County Woody Kaye lives in. His fantastical analogy of Loudoun as Mordor is nothing like the Loudoun I’ve lived in for over 20 years. Perhaps Kaye should put down his book, turn off Fox News and explore all that the county has to offer, rather than brooding over a map of Middle Earth.

Editor: What is “safe” and “affordable” housing? Does the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments know? The authors of the Metropolitan Washington Regional Fair Housing Plan Draft Executive Summary dated January 2023 clearly don’t. If they did, they would have included definitions for both in this summary.

Editor: Running through recent letters and articles is an unmentioned theme: our representative system of government no longer represents the public. Instead, leaders cater to personal interests, their party, and their ideology. Take the push in Loudoun for collective bargaining. Did the public ask for this? What possible benefits could there be for us?

Loudoun County transit workers return to work, still demanding a fair contract
For the sake of Loudoun County transit riders, ATU 689 Loudoun County transit workers are returning to work today after nine weeks on strike but continue their demand that Keolis come to the table with a fair contract offer. “We care, but Keolis doesn’t. Our riders have been suffering enough, and we want to go back to work,” said Local 689 President/Business Agent Raymond Jackson. “This doesn’t mean that we’re accepting Keolis’ subpar contract offer, which our members rejected by signing a petition refusing to even vote on it.” The 9-week strike “resulted in Keolis giving us wage increases, a boost in 401(k) contributions, and a reduction in our members’ health care costs, but it’s not enough,” said Jackson. “There are many issues that need to be resolved; now that our members have agreed to go back to work, it’s time for Keolis to engage in good faith bargaining.”
