Ventech has agreed to create 200 jobs, with an average wage of $80,000, and invest $1 million in capital investment over a three-year period, county officials said in a news release.
Corey A. Stewart, Chairman, Prince William Board of County Supervisors said: “We’re delighted to welcome Ventech to Prince William County and to our growing IT business community. The addition of 200 new jobs at an average salary of $80,000 a year is a great example of the type of jobs we are attracting in Prince William County.”
Prince William County Board of County Supervisors’ Chairman At-large, Corey Stewart (R), explained that Chris Yung now has a lasting legacy since the school will serve future generations. He noted that 75 years ago the county was only 1/10th its size but is now on the rise as a county of well-educated individuals who desire an outstanding education for their children.
Candidates for Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors will participate in a debate on October 1 at 7 p.m. and the community is invited to attend. Republican incumbent Corey A. Stewart and Democrat Richard H. “Rick” Smith III will meet for the debate on the Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College in the Howsmon Lecture Hall at 6901 Sudley Road in Manassas.
He explained that while business interests are important to the county, equally, if not more important, are the interests of the citizens. “This is a community listening to its citizens and trying to balance their interests with the interests of the county and of business,” Stewart said.
The Haymarket Town Council already passed a resolution in favor of the hybrid route but, like the one from the county, the practical effect of such a resolution is minimal. County Chairman Corey Stewart (R) seemed to acknowledge that reality near the end of the evening meeting. He directed staff to compose a letter to put the State Corporation Commission (SCC) and Dominion "on notice," claiming that the board intends to "defend county property" through the process.
“You can’t just vandalize the county by putting a big, nasty power line right in the middle of the community,” said Corey A. Stewart (R-At Large), chairman of the County Board. “You have to put it in the right place.”
The hybrid option is also supported by Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart (R), Supervisor Jeanine Lawson (R-Brentsville), state Sen. Dick Black (R-13th) and state Dels. Bob Marshall (R-13th) and Tim Hugo (R-40th).
