Dear Member of the Board:
Please find attached letters from Congressman Frank Wolf outlining his concerns as to the egregious behavior and practices currently being engaged in by MWAA. The concerns expressed, are in response to the systemic mismanagement and potential corruption engaged in by this organization.
With this in mind, it is clear that Loudoun County can not join into a regional partnership with this organization for the purposes of bringing Metro into Loudoun County beyond Dulles Airport. Therefore, the only sensible way moving forward, is for Loudoun County to Opt-out, allowing the project to terminate at the Airport. This will enable Loudoun to manage its involvement with MWAA and Metro, with minimal capitol outlay, while still providing for access to rail service from Dulles Airport.
Congressman Wolf has provided the off ramp needed to you as a member of the board to Opt-Out. His release of these letters is both a public policy and political lifeline, providing the cover required, to distance yourself from this poorly planned and troublesome project, while crafting a positive and sensible solution.
When you find yourself standing at the bottom of a hole, knee deep in muck, and someone lowers you a rope, climb out.
Opting -Out is a win win for Loudoun County.
