Wait till the public safety personnel get to Fairfax, Va.
First they have to sell their home or homes here. Slow turn over and extra low value. I hope they checked out the median real estate prices there. Along with the taxes which will be coming out of their hopefully higher wages.
Fairfax County is double the population of Lee County.
That county already cut its personnel in 2010 and 2011 budget, unlike Cape Coral, Fl. which carried the extra baggage through 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010,
and 2011. Five long years too many.
Well I never was one to keep some one from bettering themselves with a different company, in this case local government.
So I and others wish you all the best of luck and wish you had decided to make the change much sooner!
