MISSION

Gwen Bell for Rock Hill Supervisor

As supervisor of Rock Hill District, I am strong advocate for smart growth development that meets the needs of our communities in Stafford. Sensible and sustainable growth to achieve a stronger tax base and diversified economy that alleviates the tax burden on hard-working families and our local small businesses.

Stafford County is the perfect blend of historic and rural landscape that is well recognized as one of the growing forces in Northern Virginia. However, we must ensure that our government adapt in order to consistently rise to the challenge of providing essential public services to our citizens. Our infrastructure is in need of modernization, public water and sewer systems, improving the walkability within communities, land preservation programs that support and protect our wineries and agricultural lifestyles. For too long the Rock Hill District have been woefully underfunded despite the aggressive residential and business property tax programs in place.

We need thriving shopping and entertainment multi-centers for our family-oriented communities and neighboring military-based families. Why should our residents be caught every week in traffic grid-locks to spend their hard-earned money elsewhere.  As supervisor of the Rock Hill District, I take this responsibility seriously to attract new investments and encourage local partnerships to increase and diversify the economy of Stafford so that we can increase revenue and remain competitive to wean us from our overreliance on residential property taxes.   Stafford County is ranked consistently as one of the 5 highest-income counties in Northern Virginia according to the 2016 American Community Survey[4] prepared by the US Census Bureau. Let us begin to invest more of citizen’s money here in Stafford so that our monies are used to develop world-class public school system, second to none in Virginia.

As supervisor of the Rock Hill District, I will ensure that our neighborhood public schools are provided with all the necessary resources to ensure that every student have  equal access to the best educational programs to prepare them for our 21st century. We have phenomenal educators throughout our districts let us support them by providing for smaller classroom sizes, outstanding STEAM programs that launch our pre-K though High School children into higher strata of  learning, vocational programs that need to keep pace with technological strides. Now is the time for our government to prioritize developing a first class public school education for Stafford.

Mixed-use development with a range of affordable housing choices to retain our local workforce of first responders, law enforcement officers, teachers, and social workers. Let us make Stafford our home-at-large for us all to work, learn and play in our community.
