O’Meara Announces Candidacy as the Coles District Supervisor Coles District, VA – Native Prince William County resident, Paul O’Meara, announced today that he is seeking the position of Coles District Supervisor. The local businessman has been an out-‐spoken advocate for the taxpayers of Prince William County in recent years during public transportation meetings and Board of County Supervisors Meetings. When reached for comment, Coles District Supervisor Candidate, Paul O’Meara said,
“I have grown increasingly concerned with the trajectory of spending in County government.
Given the current state of our economy and the hardships families continue to face, I fear the current Board is out-‐of-‐touch with those who have elected them. We have one of the highest tax rates in our region, while our classrooms and roads continue to be overcrowded.” Paul O’Meara has been exploring a run for several months and has spent time talking with Coles District residents.
Candidate O’Meara has found, “the following concerns are prevalent across the Coles District: overcrowded classrooms, underpaid teachers, clogged transportation corridors, a lack of living-‐wage jobs here in the county, an explosion of residential development without the necessary supporting infrastructure, and rising real estate taxes.” Asked to address some of his solutions for such a wide array of problems, Coles District Candidate, Paul O’Meara said, “I will be running on a comprehensive platform to work with the School Board to reset spending priorities, reform our development process, and reform County government while alleviating the tax burden placed on home owners.
Additionally I would invite folks to visit my website at PaulOMeara.org to learn more about my campaign”.
Paul O’Meara was born and raised in Prince William County, graduating from C.D. Hylton High School and George Mason University with a B.A. in Government and International Politics. Currently, Paul is the Vice-‐President of a family-‐owned business that was founded in Prince William County in 1973. Paul is a member of the Chamber of Commerce and a past Trustee of Sudley United Methodist Church.
