On Saturday, March 4, the Hunter Mill District Community Summit will take place at the Frying Pan Farm Park Visitor Center, 2709 West Ox Road, Herndon. The event, which starts at 8:30 a.m., and concludes at noon, is an opportunity to get an update on the County and Fairfax County Public School FY 2018 Budgets, as well as be an active participant in dialogue and discussions. Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins will host the summit with presentations by Chairman Sharon Bulova, Vienna Mayor Laurie DiRocco, County Executive Ed Long, and Fairfax County Schools.
The highlight event will be the Prosperity, Equity, and One Fairfax Community presentation by Sookyung Oh, D.C Area Director National Korean American Service & Education Consortium (NAKASEC). Oh’s advocacy and coalition-building work supports health reform, early childhood education and welfare (Head Start, family child care), immigration reform, and policies related to taxes, budget, pension system, health care, and immigrant communities.
Subsequently, the community will be asked to participate in a Build-A-Budget exercise, based on budget information and speaker presentation. During the exercise, residents will identify funding priorities and allocations to address need of Fairfax County by electronic “vote,” the results of which will be instantly shared.
In addition, the Department of Tax Administration staff will be available to provide one-on-one consultation to senior and disabled residents on tax relief opportunities during the Summit hours.
