Keep Our Taxes Low
Low taxes attract businesses. Low taxes
attract young families. Low taxes mean those of us who work here can actually retire here.
Create Good Jobs

quality of life. Read more.....
Ensure Excellent Schools
Our public schools are the bedrock of our future citizenry and the
cornerstone of our future economy. Schools are the number one factor that prospective businesses look at when considering
relocation—we must attract excellence by promoting excellence. We must also recognize the value of schools as anchors
for local communities and traditions.
Provide Efficient Government Services
If we want quality schools, adequate public safety, and an attractive
business environment--while keeping taxes low--then we must operate all departments of county government efficiently, expand
cooperation with our two neighboring cities, and make smart decisions about our shared future.

Campbell: "We must declare Independence!"
Carey Campbell, U.S. Air
Force veteran, accountant is an Independent for Braddock Supervisor.Thank you for covering the Braddock District supervisor debate. Also appreciate your including our
Independent Campbell campaign and participation in your coverage.
Thanks to the many people who contacted the Campbell
campaign to say they think we are winning the debate on the issues, and substance with passion, heart and intelligence. Ultimately,
our system of government, transparency and voters win by seeing discussion and clear differences.
Ours is an Independent
campaign, filed as an Independent, running as Independent, and when elected will serve as an Independent. The article failed
to mention I am an Independent conservative or conservative Independent. Your reporter represented me as a candidate of a
political party. I am not.
I am the most fiscally conservative candidate in the race. Your article failed to mention
that vital fact for Connection readers. Not only videos, but other reporters noted the Campbell campaign is conservative.
Our Campbell for Braddock supervisor campaign calls for the lowest property tax rate. Our Campbell campaign is for
the largest cuts and shifts in spending. Other points would have made for a more fair and balanced article. Here they are.
Over a month ago, the Campbell campaign called for debates in all 27 Braddock District precincts. Just as in the campaign
two years ago.
I am a very serious candidate for Braddock supervisor, a U.S. Air Force veteran and accountant.
I’ve served our nation over three decades. I have served our Braddock community over 20 years — North Springfield
Civic Association board and PTA member, Braddock District council member, Fairfax Federation of Civic Associations co-chair
of budget and transportation committees, Braddock District Comprehensive Transportation Task Force. Education includes a bachelor’s
degree, magna cum laude from University of Maryland, European Division. Accounting and business studies at the University
of Kentucky, and while on active duty in the U.S. Air Force study at the University of Freiburg in Germany.
our Independent campaign two years ago, we knocked on about 40,000 doors in Braddock District. We have knocked thousands more
Braddock doors this year.
two decades I’ve gathered hundreds of thousands of petition signatures to put Independent candidates on the ballot in
Braddock District, Fairfax County and across Virginia. Decades of community work proves the seriousness of the Campbell conservative
I run as an Independent because we must get beyond the partisan bickering and deadlock. We
need a new Independent course. Independent because like the declaration of Independence, we must declare our independence.
We must be independent of old, dead, useless ideology.
We need be independent to be realistic, pragmatic, and reasonable.
Annandale Blogspot calls "Campbell forceful presence" debate winner

Annandale Blogspot describes Campbell, "forceful presence"
wins Braddock Supervisor debates.Scores of people packed the community room at Braddock Hall for the first
of 10 debates with the candidates running for supervisor of the Braddock District of Fairfax County.
The debate pitted Carey Campbell the Independent against the "borrow and spend Incumbent"
and other challenger. The biggest surprise of the evening was the forceful presence of the the Independent candidate,Carey Campbell.
Campbell, who called himself “the most fiscally conservative candidate,” repeatedly
stressed the slogan, “more trains, less traffic.” An Air Force veteran, accountant, and North Springfield civic
association leader, Campbell has run for Braddock supervisor three times and ran for chairman of the board in 2009.
Campbell proposed putting solar panels on the roofs of all public buildings to generate revenue to
build new rail systems. Rails would also attract new development, he said, which would generate more revenue.
Campbell repeatedly referred to the “borrow and spend” incumbent and criticized
him for not supporting rail. Campbell said he had heard the incumbent spewing “neo-con ideological nonsense.”
When asked how they would tackle fraud, waste, and abuse in the county budget, Campbell said he would not support creating
any new agency with limited tax dollars. "If citizens want more auditors, they must realize that costs taxpayers.
There is now free lunch. "
Carey Campbell, Independent, "Save. Don't spend!"

Campbell wins Braddock Supervisor debate
Fairfax County’s Braddock
District candidates hold first debate
By Fredrick Kunkle
for the Fairfax County Board of Supervisor’s Braddock District seat met in the first of 10 planned debates Wednesday
night, offering competing views on matters involving all of Northern Virginia’s biggest jurisdiction and neighborhood
More than 100 people overflowed a
meeting room at the Braddock District office to observe the 90-minute contest between Carey C. Campbell, the Independent,
and two other candidates.
The candidates agreed on the need to continue building a new Metro line to Dulles International Airport, sparred over
public employee pensions, and sketched differing philosophies of government while trying not to seem too partisan.
Campbell, who turned 55 on Wednesday, was easily the brashest
of the three. He referred several times to Cook as the “borrow-and-spend incumbent,” accused Cook of dishonesty,
and said he disliked attending Braddock District Council meetings because of what he described as Cook’s tendency to
spew “neocon ideological nonsense.”
“I am the most fiscally
conservative candidate here tonight,” said Campbell, an Air Force veteran and chair of the budget and transportation
committees at the Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Associations.
“We need more trains, less traffic,”
was his mantra for the evening. He also called for installing solar panels on county buildings. Campbell even rattled off
some rusty German and Spanish in response to a question about whether the candidates had the background or experience to deal
with the county’s great diversity.
“I live diversity every day,” said Campbell, who said that his wife is Peruvian. “I’ve seen all
these people door to door. I’ve knocked on the Korean American community’s [doors] -- some of the politest people
in our neighborhoods.”
The three candidates
expressed support for funding Phase II of the project building rail to Dulles International Airport and pledged to do what
it takes to shake more money out of the state so that Fairfax taxpayers alone are not shouldering too much of the burden.
