Audio: PW County Supervisor Argues When You Build Apartments, “you’re not getting Joe Republican"


Pete Candland: "and you wonder why the eastern end of the county has not just gone Democrat [sic], it's gone solidly blue"

But usually, they are careful not to “say the quiet part out loud” on this topic – namely, that Republicans don’t want, uh, certain types of housing…the types that attract, er, you-know-who. Which is why the following audio, of Prince William County Supervisor Pete Candland (R-Gainesville) is so striking.


“These Republicans are slitting their own throats approving these apartments…when you put these apartments in, you’re not getting Joe Republican moving in to these apartments….and you wonder why the eastern end of the county has not just gone Democrat [sic], it’s gone solidly blue…It’s my hope we can take a little bit of a right turn at least…”[Professor Emeritus] Stephen Fuller [of GMU] came in and said…if you want to get high-value jobs here in Prince William County, you need to build high-value homes. You’re not going to get high-value jobs by building apartments and condos.”


Pete Candland says "continue to build apts on Eastern End and $600,000 homes on Western end I'm fine with that"

Hmm...so is the Rural line Exclusionary ?
