Best post about housing this year

This is the best post on housing that I have seen in 2008.

There is a Board of Supervisors budget hearing tomorrow at the Fairfax Government Center where property values, taxes, and public services will be discussed. This article, while in Loudoun, touches everyone in the area right now. Fairfax County has to realize that they have a responsibility to their constiuents to maintain public services at least at 2007 funding levels during this downturn. Hopefully, Chairman Connolly and the Board will recognize that an increase in the property tax rate of four to five cents is necessary.
