<quoted text>You have proof of all these things and have not gone to the Attorney General? I mean you must have proof to put it right out there as fact, right? An affair, nepotism and some shady dealings you can't get to the bottom of? Why are you blogging about it? Don't you think the police department and city attorney would like to know what information you are privy to that they missed. Anyone reading what you wrote knows the names of the cop and councilman you are talking about. I can not imagine that anyone would level those charges without proof. Lets face it, all of us who write here can be traced if there is just cause and I can't imagine anyone would risk legal action if they did not have proof of such serious charges. Here's tip for you, address city council in person and bring all of the documentation and proof you have. I know the police department and city attorney would be eager to learn anything you could teach them. They will certianly be embarassed when you share all of your information with them and they realize they have sat silent while so many laws were broken. Maybe in time for the next council meeting you can find out what that cop has done now "that no one will talk about". So as the saying goes "get your ducks in a row" and present all of your proof and documentation to the city council at the next meeting. I know they will welcome someone with the wealth of information that you obviously have.You would be doing the city a great service by exposing the nepotism that you say is still on-going. So, if you have the courage of your convictions (and proof) stand up at the podium, give your name and address and fire away. I will be sure to tune in.
Actually there is a police report on file regarding this incident and this incident did go to court. Former police officer is now a fire fighter, She does have have her facts correct.

So then when people comment here, should that be considered a "Post Mortem?"

Our government needs to listen to what the public wants and needs and not try to destroy history or land used for the watermen and the public. We should have people who care for the communities. Everybody doesn't want or can afford an upscale house for half a million dollars. Everybody can't afford a condo that's $100,000.
We will trade anyway.

why hasn't the DP done a follow up article? Postings here have alleged misuse of city money, fraud, improper hiring, favoritism, cover ups.... And what happened to the last parks and rec director, before Mr. Burgess gave the job to his friend?

He was apparently having an inappropriate relationship with a department head. That is a little beyond an "error in judgment". He was a very nice guy and did a lot for the city of Poquoson, but some things are just not acceptable.

Look.... I am very close to Mr. Burgess and all I have to say is do any of you have anything better to do then blog online to make yourselves feel better about your own imperfections? Work for any job/agency/government for 30 years and tell me that you don't have a breaking point where you are ready to say you've had enough! no scandal, no relationship with employee's, no cover ups and quite frankly all of you who think thats the case make me sick. Is a person never able to move on to better themselves professionally? Shame on each one of you for posting opinions on things you know nothing about. I hope your life is one day in the public eye 24/7 so people can say hurtful lies about you on the internet as well.

She definitely does.. He's a firefighter because he lied under oath in court and the commonwealth would never use or take another case of his. But since he father in law in on city council, he got moved to the fire department, instead of fired, like a lying , Crooked cop should be
