Incumbent Candidates Spend Election Eve Doing F.C. City’s Business at Council Meeting

On the literal eve of Tuesday’s Falls Church City Council election, both incumbents seeking re-election stuck to their Council duties tonight, arduously working through the line-by-line details of the City’s Capital Improvement Plan for the Fiscal Year 2011 budget, while others of the candidates were working phones, crafting e-mails and preparing to be up before the crack of dawn to work the polls from their 6 a.m. opening to 7 p.m. closing tomorrow. Vice Mayor Hal Lippman and Councilman David Snyder, both seeking re-election, showed their commitment to their work by contributing actively to lengthy discussions on the City’s priorities for its capital improvements, while a third of the eight candidates in Tuesday’s race, Barry Buschow, also held forth as an observer at the meeting.

Snyder and Lippman both spoke extensively about the need to push ahead with funding one or more public parking garages in the downtown area, and of the need to focus capital improvements on economic development goals, while not ignoring the future needs of the schools and police department.
