Army of Supporters Overflows Auditorium
Estimates of 475-500 supporters
THANK YOU for Answering the Call !!
The yellow/green sea of support yesterday was beyond our expectations! Close to 500 Rescue Reston supporters arrived at the beginning of the hearing, with about 150 staying until the end, 5 hours later. A smaller but key piece of the audience was news reporters. Why were they there? Because so many of YOU were there. They "got it" that this IS a big story, and that it's of interest to far more than just the land owners who surround the golf course itself.
What should we do now? Stay tuned. Additional battle plans being drawn . . .
All of our speakers made great points, and the BZA does record their meetings. We'll let you know when it becomes available. In the meantime, enjoy Rescue Reston's co-founder John Pinkman's message: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCP8MXmybpo
And how about our (Rescue Reston's) attorney, Randy Greehan of Greehan,Taves, Pandak & Stoner
? He was instrumental in helping find "the missing files" and his documentation was often referred to throughout the hearing. YOUR financial contributions
made this possible. Rescue Reston is a 501(c)(4).
