In con­cert, with­out con­flict

Rappahannock News - - BIZ BIO • COM­MENT -

Mike Biniek brings a will­ing­ness to lis­ten and to con­sider di­ver­gent points of view to the Board of Su­per­vi­sors. Be­hind this open­ness is strong in­tegrity and sense of pur­pose. His quiet, thought­ful, con­cil­ia­tory approach looks to find the mid­dle ground.

Years of busi­ness ex­pe­ri­ence gained in suc­cess­fully op­er­a­tion/ man­age­ment of a 200-acre farm along with the fam­ily’s B&B and highly re­garded Belle Meade School is a ma­jor as­set.

Too, in his eight years on the BOS, Mike ad­vo­cated ad­e­quate fund­ing for the public schools while keep­ing taxes low. He worked dili­gently to re­solve the con­tentious Fire and Res­cue is­sues and forge an agree­ment. His due-dili­gence approach to res­i­dents' opin­ions lead to keep­ing the build­ing of­fi­cial in house (in the county). He has sup­ported all tourism ini­tia­tives, and con­stantly seeks av­enues for cut­ting costs while en­cour­ag­ing in­come.

We need Mike as Pied­mont District County rep­re­sen­ta­tive be­cause we know from ex­pe­ri­ence that he is knowl­edge­able, ca­pa­ble and we can count on him to work in con­cert with oth­ers with­out con­flict, to get the job done. KATHY CHRISTIE Sper­ryville
