Another Woman With Delusions Of Power
Farmers in Fauquier County are planning to bring their pitchforks to an Aug. 2 hearing before the Board of Zoning Appeals to protest the arbitrary treatment of one of their own. On April 30, Zoning Administrator Kimberley Johnson sent Martha Boneta an official cease-and-desist notice for selling farm products and hosting a birthday party for her best friend's 10-year-old daughter on her 70-acre Paris, Va., farm without a special administrative permit.
Johnson threatened to fine Boneta $5,000 per violation if she did not stop the alleged unlawful activities within 30 days. In doing so, Boneta's fellow farmers say, Johnson stepped far beyond her authority. They're supporting her appeal before the BZA because they rightly fear that left unchecked, this infringement on one farmer's freedom to make a living will spread to other agricultural enterprises like a dangerous pest.
$5,000 fine per violation. Insane.
Read the whole article, it's not long, but it shows what can happen when some broad with a hunger for power and control gets up and running like this Kimberly Johnson. They do not give a whit about the rules. They do not give a damn who they hurt. Their only goal is control and power over others. A good place to find these types is in city and county administrative positions, where they feel invincible.
Another place is apartment complexes that have female managers. They can be vicious. I suspect a few of them even get sexual satisfaction from such abuses of power.
I'll just bet you've run into one or two.
Fauquier County definitely needs a new Zoning Administrator.
