Welcome to the Arlington District 1 Blog.

This site has been set up to discuss the issues pertinent to the North District of Arlington and items before the City Council.  I will be able to monitor your comments and publish those of subjective content.  I look forward to posting information and keeping my constituents informed as best I can.



  1. Site looks great Charlie! I'm glad you have started a website to keep people up to speed on your endeavors in D1.

  4. Nice! Agree with all of the above.

  5. Well a lot of you have asked for a place to go where you can see what is happening in our community. This is what my neighbor and I have come up with. Since I can't even log in properly he has drug me by the nose into the computer age.
    At the city council we are currently going over the budget, because it has to be approved before the fiscal year that starts 1 Oct. Ergo the town hall meeting tonight and the one last week. Essentially, your house value went down last year 1%, so your property taxes will be a little less. Unfortunately for business owners their values went up by 2 1/2%, so their taxes will rise a little. The big news is that sales tax has been remarkable. For the first time in Arlington history we will go over the $50 million range. As a matter of fact we are looking at $52 million in sales this year. So the budget has a 3% raise built into it for all city employees. I don't believe that they have had a raise in 5 years so it is well deserved in my opinion.
    I am glad that you like the site and we will soon be able to post here and it will go to facebook automatically. Stay tuned.

  6. This is a fantastic way to communicate with the folks whom you represent! Thank you.
