letter to editor

Letter: Yes, questions do remain on housing deal

Editor: Arlington County Board members did, indeed, leave many questions unanswered in their recent discussion with Civic Federation delegates on the financing plan for the Barcroft Apartments . Case in point: Why did Arlington, Amazon and the mystery “senior lender”...

Letter: New governor showing disdain for environment

Editor: In November 2021, Virginians handed Republicans a major victory over their opposition to Critical Race Theory (CRT), which teaches that whites – but not blacks – are inherently racist. Democrat Terry McAuliffe denied that CRT was being taught...

Letter: Beyer beware; a better option has emerged

Editor: Victoria Virasingh, a Democrat who presents a fresh perspective, new ideas and concern for the overlooked and underrepresented, is running in the Democratic primary for the 8th District U.S. House of Representatives seat on June 21. Virasingh is a...

Letter: FCPS not being nimble enough on COVID response

Editor: Imagine trying to build a school with bricks but no mortar. That’s how Fairfax County Public Schools is trying to get through an overwhelming surge in COVID cases without using “virtual” instruction. In-person instruction is undeniably better than virtual...

Letter: Not all Arlingtonians satisfied with status quo

Letter: Hijacking public meetings not a protected right

Editor: I don’t disagree that feeling threatened (or disrespected) shouldn’t be used as a weapon to silence people, as stated in the Sun Gazette’s Nov. 18 editorial about school boards. However, it’s not unreasonable to expect people to sign up...

Letter: There is a chance to stop calamitous pipeline

Editor: The Virginia Water Control Board is poised to adopt a stream-bed permit drafted by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality that would enable it to complete the 300-mile Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) between Wetzel County, W.Va., and Pittsylvania...

Letter: Va. can do more to protect public from pollution

Editor: I read with disappointment that the Arlington County Board declined to declare a climate emergency , passing up an opportunity to advance the county’s health, energy and economic interests. Fortunately, the board has another immediate opportunity to act, by...
