NOVA Continues to Grow

The WaPo has a great article on the continuing expansion of Northern Virginia. The trend since 2000 has been the same: The growth has been quite steady, and the major growth is in Northern Virginia," said Qian Cai, the center's director for demographics and workforce. "It will be more congested in Northern Virginia." "We have never seen such explosive growth in such a short period," said Sean T. Connaughton (R), chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. "We've had 15 years' worth of growth in five years."

This is why the PWTaxpayers Alliance has changed its pledge from "inflation plus population growth" to just "inflation." They realize that the Prince William and Loudoun budgets are growing below the former and they don't have anything to whine about.

I think budget growth should be pegged to average shoe size for the five biggest-footed members of the PWTA. That would make about as much sense.

Perhaps the folks over here could sponsor a contest to find the most random number possible to be the controlling factor in budget changes. MOM might resist pegging it to Mr. Nohe's hat size.
