Gloucester County received $7,254,411 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to cover eligible county expenses to help address the impact of the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic and promote economic recovery. Congressman Wittman, who represents Gloucester County and should support measures that are of help to the residents of the county, voted against the enactment of ARPA.
As best as I can determine the Gloucester County Board of Supervisors allocated the ARPA funds for needed projects such as: county broadband expansion, school bus garage work, library renovations, the Abingdon/Gloucester Volunteer Fire Department, repair of Pumping Station Number 11; and Woodville Park renovations.
Consider the value of these funds when you vote Nov. 8, 2022.
