Some of Chris Dumler's allies are now calling on him to step down. They say the embattled Albemarle supervisor is becoming too much of a distraction to county business.

What does that even mean? You think corruption is a recent problem? This country has actually come a long way.

Dumb comment, don't say that often. If it where true what you say this wouldn't be such an issue, but it is, so your dumb.

From Virginia State Code 15.2-802.( the law)

Vacancy of Supervisor requires special election.

" If a vacancy occurs on the board, the chief judge of the circuit court for such county shall call a special election, in the district if the vacancy is of a district supervisor, or in the county at large if the vacancy is of the chairman, to be held not fewer than 45 nor more than 90 days after the occurrence of the vacancy; however, if the vacancy occurs within 150 days prior to a general election, such special election may be held on the general election day; and if the vacancy occurs within 120 days prior to the date of a regular election for the board of supervisors, such vacancy shall be filled by appointment by the remaining members of the board within seven days of the occurrence of the vacancy, which appointment shall be for the duration of the term of office of the person whose absence from the board occasioned such vacancy. The qualification of candidates and the election shall be otherwise as at general law applying to special elections."

In case anyone hasn't noticed, Mallek is completely zany and out-of-touch with all practical matters. Nice lady; just lost in space.

There are several people in that district that have expressed interest in past that are more than qualified. I recommend either Petey Craddock or Retired Sheriff Terry Hawkins. Let's move on with this mess.

Surprised he even wants to stay. Most people with any moral fiber would have already apologized for their actions and stepped down in shame. Apparently he has no shame nor moral values.

I am glad that Mr. Rooker has finally decided to speak out against Mr. Dumler and advise him to step down. I feel that this is only political posturing at this point, but well done on Mr. Rooker's part.

Mrs. Mallek may want to consider doing the same. She ran unapposed during the last election, but it is certain that she will face oposition the next time.

Next election, get rid of Dennis Rooker. He is all about himself, not the people of this county in Virginia.
Whatever way the wind blow for him.
