Letter: Chronis will pay heed to cost-of-living issues

Posted on October 14th, 2015, InsideNOVA.com

Editor: As a young professional in Fairfax County, I have found that the cost of living is becoming prohibitive.

Property taxes for homeowners seem to be on the rise, with no ceiling in sight – which affects my rent. Tolls on the Dulles Toll Road, also increasing, are already a prohibitively expensive alternative to wasting hours sitting in traffic on our congested roadways.

Jennifer Chronis understands the financial and transportation challenges we are facing in the Dranesville District.

Her plan to make the county more business-friendly will help to alleviate the huge tax burden currently placed on property owners, passed on to those of us that pay rent. Her understanding of the need to complete the Route 7 widening through Dranesville will ease some of the congestion, which would give those of us on tight budgets an alternative to the Dulles Toll Road.

Fairfax County should remain an accessible and affordable place to live, and I plan to keep it that way by supporting Jennifer Chronis.
