We’re No. 47! (in ethics)

The exciting news that Virginia came in 47th among the 50 states in a recent survey of ethical standards in local government has special meaning for us here in Loudoun: We can all be proud that our new all-Republican Board of Supervisors did more than its part in acquiring for Virginia this distinction by refusing to adopt the ethics policy of its predecessors, by refusing to declare conflicts of interest, and by refusing to require supervisors to recuse themselves from voting on zoning or other issues that directly benefit campaign contributors.

The new slogan for Loudoun: “We’re Number 47!”
