Mitt Romney's Visit To Fairfax, Virginia Quiet For One Restaurant
According to Andrea Pace, chef at Villa Mozart, a nearby restaurant, he only felt Romney’s presence in the traffic and lack of parking around the town.
“No one was in the restaurant today,” he said. Pace recalled that when his town had received other “big name” visitors in the past the traffic was bad, there was no parking and there were more people in his restaurant. Thursday did not fallow this precedent.
“Today at the restaurant was like any other day,” he said, “Not many people.” Villa Mozart resides about five minutes from Van Dyke Park, where Romney held his rally.
As Pace explained, when Fairfax receives visitors, there is a general buzz around town. Unlike people in his area, Pace does not like to talk about the these guests.
“Whenever someone comes to town, I’m not talking about them,” he said.
The subject of political views is a personal one to Pace, he does not know the general consensus among his town regarding the election, and he chooses not to share his with others.
