What's with Gasburg, VA under my name? I'm not from Gasburg! I always had Kenbridge show up under my name. Or maybe it was Lunenburg...
Oh well...

Guest you know yourself these are towns where everyone knows the other. Most of the people are related, so it will be hard to replace some of the officers that should just retire. But if things keep going the way they are some of the small towns will be taken over by the county. That may or may not be a good thing.
I think in Burkeville that the mayor honestly feels he is doing what is best for the town. It is hard to do, he does have a good heart and you know sometimes we all have to learn to forgive each other. I personally would not want the job as mayor or council. You can not please everyone.
Yes, I do know that most people know everyone or are connected in some way. It's not good in my opinion. Not very much to take over in Crewe. I agree with you about not wanting to be mayor or on town council. On either job people would say that you wouldn't be doing right. It is freedom of speech though.

One of my gripes about Mayor Crittenden was campaign promises he made and did not keep. For example, he said that he would hire a grantwriter and did not. It wouldn't have been necessary to bring in a full-time employee to do that, there are free-lance grantwriters.
Blackstone is practically knee-deep in grant money to make improvements to their town. Why not Crewe?
This guy, Lee Simmons, who has announced his candidacy for Mayor. Anyone have feedback on him? Would he be a good Mayor for Crewe? I don't have an opinion because I know nothing about him...would like to though.
I would say the reason Crewe doesn't have grant money is because they didn't apply for it. As I've said Crewe doesn't want change at all. It almost appears like Crewe wants to make things as bad as they can. On Simmons, all I know is that he is young and has a good mind which Crewe needs. Not an old mind.

You have to know what you are doing in order to get grants. Burkeville could use grants as well. Crewe will sooner or later this year be compelled to comply with Federal guidelines. I know that to be a fact. I personally liked Mayor Crittenden, however the council has a part in hiring grant writers. Don't forget that.

I thought Burkeville applied for grant money? Crewe has to apply for grant money and get someone that is good at writing for the grant writer. The council can be down right stupid when it comes to business.

Burkeville's has to have a council member apply for a grant. They will have on one grant proposed until April to do so. If not then they will have to apply as the grant is mandantory. Same for Crewe. No excuses will be accepted. That is from the Federal Government.

I guess you are right some people resist change and make a big deal out of what they are supposed to do. It should not be that hard.

I would also like to see the cops changed as well.

Cops changed ? The cops we have now dont do anything any ways and thats not there falt they are told to do nothing. Now think about it. If they would have to be self supported write as many tickets as there monthly pay . Now if you get payed $ 2,000 dollars a month you would have to write that many tickets and then the money would be right.

Where do al come from? First of all Mayor Crittenden is a Politician. Yes he says he loves this Town,was born and raised here,was a Commanding Officer in the AF and held other jobs after retrement.His age, nor anyone elses age has nothing to do with how things are run and done. and what you hope to do. It's the citizens of this Town of Crewe who are in a rutt. Nobody wants to honestly stand in front of the Mayor and Council and state their thoughts and or opinion. So maybe there are no opinions and/or are only disgust in private.As long as you and everyone else in this town let the Mayor, Council, Town Manager, and all the other Departments do what they want to do without having to answer to you the Citizens and Tax Payer, they will keep doing as before..NOTHING will ever change until someone steps up and asks the right questions and does some checking and balancing.

Cops are supposed to enforce the law. The cops here just sit on their butt. Always arresting the wrong people.

It just shows that people don't have the guts to stand up and say what they think on matters. I agree with you though.

Well take a look at Blackstone the town manager had a restaurant owner arrested over the meals tax. She will end up winning in the long run. That man is an employee of the town, what friggin police powers does he have? However I think with what they have to work with in the towns, they try to do the best they can.
As far as I know most people like Hank and it was proven they liked Joe Morrisette in Burkeville. I will say this about both of them they did not embarrass the town by having a manager arrest a business owner. Shame on you Blackstone.

People do stand up for things here but if they dont like what you say about it. Then look they make your life real hard to live here.

There is a good bit of truth to that. Some people can't handle the truth.

I'm sure you heard of the "click it or Ticket" program. Our Crewe PD gets a Grant about 3-4 times yearly. It pays the Cops $20.00+/hourly to write traffic tickets on the days or hours they are off. In other words, in their spare time while off duty. So why would they knock themselfs out, while on duty?

I live in Burkeville, but yes. In my opinion Lee Simmons would make a GREAT Mayor!He's young, a go-getter, comes from a good family, and seems to be a stand up guy!!!!

Interesting observation but then folks whose friends get arrested or who actully get arrested themselves always think the wrong people are getting arrested. That has been my observation.
