On 27 July, we posted this Action Alert. Here’s the news release from Fauquier County Citizens for Family Farms (2 August 2012) on today’s Fauquier County Board of Zoning Appeals:

Farmer Burned by Fauquier County


Statement of Fauquier County Citizens for Family Farms:


Fauquier County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) ruled against Paris farmer Martha Boneta in a matter that was at the center of today’s “pitchfork protest” that has been the focus of national attention.


An overflow crowd sat and stood stunned as the BZA ruled in favor of zoning administrator Kim Johnson’s Orwellian Citation that includes a pumpkin carving and a birthday party for little girls at the farm.


Fauquier County is the lawbreaker in this matter and has opened the door to massive exposure of its lawbreaking ways beyond just this one zoning matter.


This will galvanize support for the dismissal of Kim Johnson, and will draw microscopic attention on a national basis to the operations of Fauquier County.


FCCFF is already receiving many e-mails about lawbreaking by Fauquier County, and we will ensure that such lawbreaking by Fauquier County will be dealt with and so that citizens may be protected from this trespassing government.
