I am appalled that any elected official would speak down from the dais in such a nasty tone to a private citizen. This man, Jeff Bergman, was polite and was simply voicing his opinion. He insulted no one. He expressed his concern and his wishes for his community. He spoke as a resident and a father. For his efforts he was bellowed at, insulted and berated by our elected chairman.
NO private citizen should be afraid to speak for fear of being publically upbraided by Corey Stewart. Corey, you owe this man an apology! He was there to let the BOCS know his community’s feelings about the Catharpin Park. He was polite and respectful. He was treated rudely.
I also expect you probably don’t care more for the park site being discussed than anyone else in the county. You were an obnoxious, bloviating, blowhard drama-queen who owes Jeff Bergman, the gentleman who spoke, an apology as well as the entire Gainesville District an apology.
Learn some manners. We don’t talk to each other like that here in Prince William County. This is still the South, son.
An excerpt from Lorraine Devon Wilke writing in the Huffington Post in an opinion piece entitled: Chicken With a Side of Bigotry: Chick-fil-A’s Ungodly Business Plan:
… but it seems Chick-fil-A’s president (and son of founder S. Truett Cathy), Dan Cathy, has gotten himself into some deep chicken doo-doo for proudly and loudly declaring himself “guilty as charged!” for his support of that great Christian umbrella of homophobia, the “family values and traditional marriage” platform. Yep, he’s a believer. And not only has Mr. Cathy blathered all the usual fundamentalist talking points (i.e., “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” and “…thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”), but his company has reportedly put their big money where their bigger mouth is by donating nearly $2 million to anti-gay groups.
That’s a whole lot of intolerance.
Ok, I am pretty entertained. But what’s this article have to do with Chick-Fil-A? I like their nuggests as long as I can get about 5 packs of house sauce to go with them? What? Repeat that please….No Way!!!! Check out the video:
Ok, I still don’t see the problem. So this guy says some things not so politically correct.
Ut Oh! Local people are protesting! No! Tell me again! It seems that the Prince William Chambers of Commerce will host an event at Hylton Center with COO Dan Cathy at a business lecture in November:
Mark your calendar and register now for an insightful lunch with Chick-fil-A President & COO, Dan Cathy. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to learn the leadership secrets of a Fortune 500 executive– this will be Mr. Cathy’s only appearance in the mid-Atlantic region this year!

What ARE they thinking? Maybe the PW Chamber of Commerce needs to walk this one back. Too much exposure. Too politically incorrect. Then again, this is Prince William County.
