The Woodbridge-Potomac Communities Civic Association hosted a beer and wine reception last week, to connect residents, county officials, and the business community.
“When I took office about eight, nine years ago, there wasn’t any civic association…and when we made that decision to go forward and form one, as a non-profit organization, as a voice for the community, I think we started out with maybe three, maybe four individuals. And today, looking forward, we have several hundred private citizens, and business owners, and church leaders that are a part of the association,” said Supervisor Frank Principi.
During the reception, several members from various government agencies including the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Prince William County Department of Economic Development, and the Prince William County Planning Department spoke about the role of their organization, and how they’re able to serve the community.
“I cannot say enough about the need for the community to come together for purposes, simply of gaining a better understanding of what’s going on in our community – to be able to network between businesses and private citizens, and just as importantly, to be able to advocate on issues in front of the Board of County Supervisors,” said Principi.
