Gary Aiken, Mason District Supervisor candidate, debated Penny Gross, Mason District Supervisor 24-year incumbent, on Thursday.
The debate, sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Fairfax, asked the candidates to respond to questions about their plans for mass transit, top improvements for Mason District in the next four years, their definition of fully-funded public schools, plans to ensure the best teachers continue to work in Fairfax County, plans to balance affordable housing, how to protect established neighborhoods from commercialization, how they would select citizen representatives to serve on committees, their position on redevelopment of the INOVA Campus and its impact on traffic and environment, and their biggest issue in bringing services to the community.
In her closing remarks, 24-year incumbent Penny Gross said she wanted to continue to be supervisor for four more years. In his closing remarks, candidate Gary Aiken said if it hasn’t happened in 24-years, it’s not going to happen in another four.
We have a choice…to continue with the same lack of progress and higher taxes in Mason District or to take a chance for change under the new leadership of Gary Aiken, a proven leader with the energy, experience, commitment and know-how to gets things done!
