Fairfax supervisor­s’ raise


According to the March 8 Metro article “Fairfax supervisor­s weigh raises for board,” members of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisor­s will vote on increasing their salaries by up to 45 percent. President Biden is suggesting a 5.2 percent increase for federal employees; Fairfax County Fire and Rescue is less than 5 percent.

I hope the March 21 public hearing is well attended. I have been a lifelong resident of Fairfax County and a homeowner for more than 50 years. My real estate taxes continue to increase each year; I do not want my real estate taxes to fund a 45 percent increase in salaries to the board of supervisor­s. And the raise for county firefighte­rs is a slap in the face. Mary Elizabeth Cox, Lorton
