2015 Arlington County Board

Member of the 2015 Arlington County Board: Jay Fisette, Libby Garvey, Chairman Mary Hynes, Vice Chairman Walter Tejada and John Vihstadt.

The rapprochement between the Arlington County government and the business community continues.

County Board members on May 19 designated May as “Business Appreciation Month in Arlington,” saluting those businesses – large and small – that play “a pivotal role” in community life.

Local businesses are “driving the new Arlington economy,” said County Board Chairman Mary Hynes, noting that there were 221,000 jobs in Arlington (roughly equal to the resident population), as well as 50 firms with annual revenue of $100 million or more.

The proclamation was presented to Arlington Chamber of Commerce president Kate Roche, who said that the county government continues to “move things in the right direction” in its interaction with the local business community.
