Mr. Ronis was delighted to participate in this interview.  I guess the only thing he forgot to do was the interview.  Shame.  I would have loved to hear what he had to say.  Sorry but that is strike one for not doing what you said you would do.

Mr. Ronis is an “I will” kinda guy as his website states.  He will enhance the budget of the school system but be critical of “things” that aren’t necessary for student learning (I’m guessing whiteboards here).  He will only allow tax increases for necessary things–which are just about everything that I can tell.  He will make sure that the Silver Line has a budget.  He will make sure that bike paths stretch across Rt. 7 at Ashburn Village Blvd. and Belmont Ridge Rd (for the life of me I don’t know why.  What fool would transit those roads on a bicycle anyway).  He will work for “smart growth” (didn’t we already go thru that fiasco and drain the county coiffures needlessly?) as well as density packing the east side of the county and leaving the west untouched and pristine (so I have gone from rural to suburban and about to go urban–I think I want a say in this matter).

I hate to say it but I don’t agree with the philosophy of Mr. Ronis and it is more of the same and then some.  You make your own decision.  I have made mine with the information available.
