Vienna councilman Dellinger afraid of trail users

Dan Dellinger is a Vienna Town Council member who is running for re-election. At a recent debate he stated that he is opposed to trails between Tysons Corner and Vienna neighborhoods. While people will be able to walk to Metro, “unfortunately what it’s going to do is bring the other undesirables into our neighborhood”. The above quote is from a video clip from a local news site. Mr Dellinger is featured toward the end of the clip.

Most people want to be able to bike and walk to Tysons. Since the only parking available at the four Tysons Metro stations is for bicycles, driving there is not an option. One way to ensure that gridlock in Northern Virginia continues is to propagate the current conditions that prevent people from easily walking and biking between neighborhoods.

Why not attend the candidate forum next Wed., April 29, from 7:30-9:00 p.m. at the Vienna Community Center and ask Councilman Dellinger why he’s so afraid of people who want to use trails to get around Northern Virginia. You could also ask him how to identify so-called undesirables. How many of the trail users who pass through Vienna every day on the W&OD Trail are undesirables?
