This year’s primary is special!
Every 4 years, all 10 seats on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors are up for election – one Chairman at-large, and one for each of 9 county magisterial districts. There are no term limits.
This year, half the current Supervisors are retiring after years of service. These seats are seeing competitive primaries for the first time in decades! It’s an unprecedented turn over!
These 10 elected officials on the Board of Supervisors annually set homeowner property tax rates in Fairfax County. They establish the annual budget that allocates our property taxes to fund county-administered services – in the upcoming FY 2020 it is a $4.4 Billion budget of YOUR tax dollars – to fund public schools, police and fire services, health & human services, libraries, parks & recreation, transit, environmental sustainability, affordable housing, and much more. The Board also approves land use & development policies & plans – and more!
