John F. "Jack" Herrity

Jack Herrity will always be "Mr. Republican" for Fairfax County. Nothing was more enjoyable than cruising down John F. "Jack" Herrity parkway and being passed by the man himself in his signature hat.

And he never stopped. He was on his way to another bid for County Chairman. He could be seen on top of every growth issue in the county, positioning himself against the developer-owned and operated Connolly. I think he could have done it.

There's a lot of talk about the doors of tomorrow that shut forever whenever a politician passes away. In the memory of Dalton, J. Sargeant Reynolds, Couric, and Obenshain supporters and fellow party members struggle to pick up the slack for the lost pillar.

I'll be the first to say it then, '07 here we come-

Let's win this one for Jack.

Just saw your posting on Jack Herrity. Given that yesterday would have been Ronald Reagan's 95th birthday, instead of saying "Let's Win One For the Gipper," we should say "Let's one for Jack."
