Zimmerman Ignored Planning, Population Data to Fund Pet Projects

Hi Yupette,

Did you know that Arlington County has a full time demographer on County Staff? Did you know that that County's Planning Staff collects a lot of data regarding the effects of increased population and construction on transportation?

Why does "Guru of Gridlock" Chris Zimmerman ignore demographic data that indicate the County's population grew 30,000 over the past 10 years? Why does Zimmerman ignore the construction data that indicate Zimmerman and the County Board approved the construction of 30,000 new parking spaces in Arlington over the past decade?

What are these people, anyway? Elected officials who are supposed to respond to our needs or a bunch of Elitists who respond to the wants of special interests?
