Presentation of the Board’s 2023 Legislative Package, Item 34.  The Board will hold a public hearing to gather feedback on the proposed 2023 General Assembly legislative package before adoption at its December 17, 2022 meeting. The Board will consider a package that outlines the County’s priorities for the 2023 Virginia General Assembly Session focused on education, human services, transportation, land use and housing, criminal justice reform, finance, public safety, the environment, and general government. The specific priorities reflect broader themes, such as making government more efficient, ensuring the state fully funds commitments to services and staffing before funding additional priorities, valuing the importance of amending code sections while not distorting intent, and economic development and recovery, that will guide the Board’s engagement approach with the General Assembly.  The Board will also hold a work session on the proposed legislative package with the Arlington General Assembly delegation on December 6, 2022 at 6:00pm.

Ranked Choice Voting in the June 2023 County Board Primary Election, Item 35.  The Board will hold a public hearing and consider a resolution on the establishment of Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) as the method of election for the Arlington County Board primary election candidates in the June 2023 election. Board Chair Cristol presented the RCV voting method at the September 20 Recessed meeting and the County Board Office received over 780 responses to an online engagement form. If the resolution is passed, the Electoral Board and Registrar’s Office will conduct additional outreach and education for candidates and the public in preparation for the June 2023 County Board Member primary election.  

Fiscal Year 2022 Budget Close-out, Item 36.  The County Manager will present the FY2022 Financial Results and budget close-out recommendations to the Board on Saturday, November 12th.  The public will have an opportunity to comment on the Manager’s recommendations before the Board takes final action at the Tuesday, November 15 Recessed Meeting.
