It’s no secret America needs to improve her infrastructure. It’s so obvious, it’s become a favorite talking point for President Obama to use when he talks about jacking up taxes.
Improving our lives starts in our communities. For that, we look across the moat to Arlington, Va., which voted last week on a sensible way to spend taxes.
At the Arlington County Board’s budget mark-up meeting this afternoon, the County Board approved an addition $42,000 to the police specifically for “pub crawl support.” Pub crawls in Clarendon, Courthouse and Ballston have drawn crowds close to 5,000-6,000 people, County Board Chair Jay Fisette said.
It’s 2014 and FINALLY we have government working for us!
That means proper safety at RiRas.
You know rooftop management at Whitlows will improve.
The lines to the shuffleboard table at Spider Kelly’s will become a thing of the past.
No one will become confused at the odd entrance when they walk into Clarendon Ballroom.
Most importantly, people will begin to realize that Ballroom and Clarendon Grill are two separate bars.
To combat overeager rages, local municipalities have taken to banning raging outright, like we’re living in “Footloose.”
Bravo to Arlington for treating its citizens as adults.
