During Tuesday's meeting of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, Jeanine Lawson (R-Brentsville) expressed her disappointment in a shocking display of outrage.
According to sources present at the meeting, Lawson leaned forward and took to the mic to address the board and the community, stating, "I am frankly disappointed." While the exact reasons for her disappointment remain unclear, it is believed that the disagreement over the color of the county's official stationary and the ongoing debate over the inclusion of pineapples in the county's official fruit basket may have played a role.
This unexpected display of emotion has left many in the community questioning Lawson's leadership and ability to effectively handle the responsibilities of her position. Some have even called for her resignation.
"I have always respected Jeanine Lawson and the work she has done for our community," said concerned resident, Mary Tynes. "But this behavior is unacceptable. We need leaders who can maintain their composure and work through conflicts in a professional manner."
At this time, it is uncertain how this incident will impact Lawson's role as Supervisor or the future of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors. We will continue to bring you updates as more information becomes available.
