ACTA Candidate Questionnaire Featured in Sun-Gazette
We appreciate the Arlington Sun-Gazette thinking highly enough of the questions and responses by the Arlington County Board candidates which appears in the October issue of the The ACTA Watchdog newsletter to write two stories. They provide good preparation for the November 6 elections.
- One article focused entirely on the question of the so-called Revenue Sharing Agreement in which the School Board gets nearly half of all county tax revenues.
- The second article focused on the use of “green rods” – a mechanism used by County Board members Ferguson and Zimmerman when they were new on the Board in a effort to weed-out programs of lower priority.
Non-members can obtain either an Adobe copy of the ACTA newsletter or a paper copy. For an Adobe copy, send your e-mail to the editor: timwise <@> verizon.net. If you prefer a paper copy, provide the editor your mailing address. An Adobe copy of the newsletter will be posted to the website next week after ACTA members have received their copies.
UPDATE (10/24/07): The ACTA Watchdog is now available online; see righthand column.
