Caddigan Meeting Dumfries Officials to Talk Road Widening, Ethanol Facility


DUMFRIES, Va. — Dumfries Town officials will meet Tuesday with their county supervisor, Maureen Caddigan.

The periodic meeting is set to take place at 6 p.m. at Williams Ordinary on U.S. 1 in Dumfries. Town officials are expected to discuss issues like an ethanol facility to be built on Cockpit Point Road, roadway improvements to the intersection of U.S. 1 and Va. 234 ahead of the Potomac Shores neighborhood that is to bring some 3,000 new homes to eastern Prince William County, and update on a new county library at Montclair, and an update on Fuller Heights Park near the entrance to Quantico Marine Corps Base.

Town Manager Daniel Taber said he coordinated with Caddigan’s office to set the meeting time, date, and location. In years past, Caddigan has brought Prince William Deputy County Executive Susan Roltsch to these meetings to help field questions from Dumfries officials and staff.

But just as it does in Washington, small town politics also comes with its fair share of bickering. This will be the first meeting of town officials and Caddigan since she sent a letter to Dumfries Mayor Jerry Foreman stating she would not meet with him privately to discuss matters facing the town, and that she didn’t trust him.

That letter was prompted by a statement made by Foreman accusing Caddigan of not visiting Town Hall to discuss issues facing the town, but of often coming to the town for special events.

In addition to her Potomac Magisterial District and Dumfries, Caddigan also represents the Town of Quantico.
