Sorry, Spike

The Washington Post has endorsed incumbent Cathy Hudgins for the Hunter Mill district seat on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. Apparently with Herndon's day laborer center closed and problems with illegal immigration therefore completely solved forever, they didn't see the need for one-trick-pony third-party candidates jumping into the fray. The Post also gets bonus points for snark for calling Spike a "customer-service representative." Well played, Post. Well played.

As for the Fairfax County School Board, the Post also endorsed incumbent Stuart Gibson for the Hunter Mill seat. In a pointed comment about the hay challengers have tried to make out of the current redistricting battle, they credited him for being "forthright in saying students need to be moved to under-enrolled South Lakes High School, a brave stance given some community sentiments."

We wouldn't exactly call that a profile in courage, but as political stances go, it's a damn sight better than "If I thought things in Reston was bad, I wouldn't live here."
