You hear these phrases all the time: Smart Growth; Planned Growth; Managed Growth; Infrastructure in-place-before-growth; Larger lot sizes to curtail suburban and exurban sprawl; and on, and on, and on....Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA 7) gets it. His pro-developer opponent does not.
The Democrats in Virginia's 7th Congressional District are tone death to what the people in the District are really talking about. Why? Because they are running a PRO-DEVELOPER, REAL ESTATE BROKER candidate for Congress named Anita Hartke who also happens to be a real estate broker. Hartke says folks are "frustrated by the gridlock" in Washington D.C.
Well, if Hartke is elected to Congress on the "anytime, anyplace, pro-residential growth platform," they don't know the level of gridlock she has in store for the 7th District.
Hartke has over 20 years worth of experience in promoting and selling haphazard unplanned residential growh products. If you like waiting five or six turns to get thru the traffic light; if you like having 40 kids in your child's 2nd grade classroom; if you like having your real estate assessment skyrocket to subsidize new residential growth in your county; if you like choking off your streams and creeks with untreated storm water runoff from new residential neighborhoods; if you like endless rows of strip malls stacked three or four deep; if you like governmental give away programs to finance private development projects with taxpayer money, then by all means, VOTE FOR DEMOCRAT ANITA HARTKE FOR CONGRESS....SHE IS THE DEVELOPER'S DREAM CANDIDATE AND A NIGHTMARE CANDIDATE FOR THE TYPICAL HOMEOWNER.
