The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Springtime in Gerry Connolly's Fairfax County!

I can't believe I'm finally going to see the day:

Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Gerry Connolly (D-at large) officially submitted his resignation from the board Dec. 8 to begin his first term in the U.S. House of Representatives' 11th District.

Connolly's official last day as chairman will be Jan. 2, 2009, and his official first day as a congressman is Jan. 3. He said he picked Jan. 2 in part because he wants to be furloughed along with the rest of county staff and other board members.

I'd like to think that we Fairfaxians like to live by the age-old American maxim that it's better to send our crooks to Congress than it is to keep them around locally. I'd be wrong, of course, but it wouldn't be the first time.
