Gary Baise

Most people would probably tell you that their notion of the American Dream is a house sitting in the middle of a lush green lawn that is surrounded by a white picket fence.  But acquiring that little piece of paradise, and keeping it, is fraught with obstacles.  The growing number of mandatory membership association nationwide is not the only challenge property owners face.  One of the least talked about obstacles to the free use of private property is the Federal and state environmental restrictions.   
On The Commons with us this week is Gary Baise.  Gary is a practicing attorney in Washington DC and a candidate for Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.  Gary was on the forefront of the environmental movement and has seen many changes implemented over the years.  His practice today includes protecting the rights of property owners.  Please join us On The Commons.  We’ll talk about the advances made over the decades to clean our air and make our communities healthier.  We’ll talk about property rights vis a vis some of the current restrictions and we’ll find out what made a successful farmer and attorney decide to throw his hat in the ring and run for public office.  You wont want to miss this one.
