State Delegate and Deputy Permanent Co-chair of the Republican National Convention speaks to high cost of living locally in Northern Virginia.
Is a quarter-million dollar salary enough to support a family of four in Northern Virginia? According to Virginia Del. Barbara Comstock, someone who earns $250,000 annually has to "work hard to make ends meet because we have such a high cost of living." She added, "That's not rich in our area." Patch sat down with Comstock at the Republican National Convention in Tampa this week. A longer version of the interview was published earlier Thursday afternoon. There's no denying that real estate in McLean, Tysons Corner and Vienna is some of the most expensive in the metro region. So do you agree with Comstock?
