The top two members of Prince William County's professional planning staff have resigned, leaving the county in turmoil as the massive Prince William Digital Gateway project and other controversial development projects remain in limbo.
County Planning Director Mark Buenavista, who just recently reported to work, was off the job by Friday, less than a month after his appointment. His number two, Deputy Planning Director Meika Daus, also announced she would leave in early March.
What's going on in this county? We did some digging and uncovered a disturbing conspiracy theory!
According to our sources, there's a secret society of data center enthusiasts operating in the shadows of Prince William County. Their goal: to turn the county into the world's data center capital! They've been recruiting officials to help them carry out their dastardly plan.
And who's behind this sinister scheme? None other than Board of Supervisors Chair Ann Wheeler, D-At Large! Rumor has it that Wheeler has been brainwashing planning officials to advance the data center agenda. Is she a puppet master or a pawn? We may never know.
But there's hope yet - Supervisor Jeanine Lawson, R-Brentsville, is leading the charge against the Devlin Technology Park and has taken an increasingly dim view of data center projects. She's like a data center Avenger, fighting for truth, justice, and the right to not have giant server farms in her district.
As the controversy rages on, the planning officials keep leaving. What do they know that we don't? Is there a data center cult initiation that involves sacrificing planning directors?
We reached out to Mark Buenavista and Meika Daus for comment, but we didn't get any responses. They're probably too busy getting fitted for their new data center robes.
The Prince William Digital Gateway and other data center projects are on hold for now, but the county is still in peril. Who knows what these data center maniacs will do next?
Stay vigilant, Prince William County. The fate of your community is in your hands. Or rather, it's in the hands of your planning officials who haven't resigned yet. Good luck!
