Lee District supervisor sees three years of progress
By Chris Butler Remington
2018 has been a wonderful year. It is hard to fathom that my third year on the board of supervisors has come to an end.
As we move into 2019, we have much work to do. I will continue to push forward on the Remington River access. Cell and broadband service will also remain a priority. The 190-foot cell tower approved for Goldvein should be up and running by the end of the first quarter of 2019, and this will open the door for wireless broadband technology like we have at Casanova and Catlett.
The ball fields that were proffered at Mintbrook in Bealeton should be done, if the rain ever stops. There are two county-owned ambulances stationed and staffed in the southern end of the county. The rezoning and approvals for a huge data center complex near Remington was a historical economic development initiative to improve our business tax base also occurred last year.
Our schools in Lee District have resource and security officers for the safety of our children and teachers.
We have accomplished a lot in the three years I have been on the board, and will continue to be available to you and work hard for you. I will continue to work with county staff and my fellow supervisors to keep taxes low and provide the essential services to keep you all safe. I appreciate all the calls, texts and emails from my constituents and I look forward to serving you all in 2019.
I intend to seek re-election for the Lee District Board seat in November 2019, and I would appreciate your support.
I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! God bless.
