Obit for Local Civic Figure — “Burt Bostwick was a man who believed the Arlington County government could simultaneously provide ample services while keeping spending in check. Active in a host of roles through the years with the Arlington County Civic Federation, Bostwick was a voice that acknowledged there could be benefits to an expansive local government, but that it needed to be achieved without breaking the bank – or the backs of local taxpayers. Bostwick died Nov. 23 after a yearlong battle with cancer. He was 81 years old.” [Sun Gazette]
