Prince William Supervisor flips position on preserving the rural area, takes heat after approving 99 new homes

In the final weeks of his campaign to become the next Occoquan District Supervisor, Kenny Boddye addressed the governing board on which he would soon be elected.

"Every dollar we spend on the rural crescent, to develop it and put houses out there, is a dollar that we can't put toward schools in the eastern end [of Prince William County] where we have some of the oldest schools in the region," Boddye said on October 15, 2019.

Three weeks later, Boddye, a Democrat, unseated Ruth Anderson, a Republican, by a razor-thin margin of fewer than two points. He rode in on a blue wave that saw Democrats not only take control of county government for the first time but also grabbed power in the General Assembly in Richmond.
