Is it jusy Me or have any Council members been paying attention to Mrs Foulds newest scam.It seems that every statement She makes to the press has been about Council not giving Her direction.She charmed the management study people into believing this and now thats Her new platform.I say giving direction and showing Her how to be a Town Manager are two different things.She has taken Her failures and put the blame on Council.She has no integrity in the way She treats citizens,employees and now Council members.

So far the Town has paid Her a cumulated salary of over 3/4 of a million dollars plus a paid assistant.Do You feel as a tax payer that You got Your moneys worth?She has no past Town management experience.She brings no new ideas to the table and expects Council to tell Her what She needs to do.She has failed the building and zonning requirements,Public Works and Police Dept.and Council then hs to step in.Is this the actions of an experieced 100 thousand a year manager?With a full time 40 thousand a year assistant?Now She is blamming Council.

You are right on the money. Ms. Foxy Foulds is making the Council look foolish on purpose because she is in fear of her job is my opinion. She is cleverly using the Journal reporter as a pond to do her dirty deed, and Ms Farneth is playing right into her hands by not researching thoroughly. She hides things from councils, holds information until the eleventh hour, pits one council member against the other to her advantage in hopes of saving her neck. And you uninformed readers believe it. But the wiser citizens know better. Hopefully a majority of council will make the right decision about the Town Manager. She needs to go.

You are absolutely right! She is so good at sweet-talking people, she conned the consultants. Val does exactly as you say, pitting one group of Council members against another, then shirks her responsibility by claiming she needs "direction" from Council. Sadly, the conned consultants backed this up. I guess that's what we got for our $17,000 - exactly what Val wanted.

From what I hear some are trying, but others won't let them. Same old same old as before.

There may be many things to blame Val for but high salary is not one of them. That is what the Council offered, did anyone expect her to say no that is way too much, give me less. It being a norm or not is past history. Correct it or move on. They are trying to putting out campfires and the forest is burning down.

All they have to is look at the apparent illegal actions which were reported to Council a year ago.

Brubaker is the only one that doesn't know. All others have direct knowledge or were approached for a meeting and didn't care.

They are afraid to fire her because he is the first lady town manager. Excuse me acting like a town manager. She does not know what she is doing in the job and she is always seeking help from the Va. Municipal League.

The Town manager is getting paid a top salary,the price for an experenced manager and yet has had no previous experence.The same goes for police chief and other dept heads.Plus they all have assistants.Too many layers of management.

The interim police chief has less time and experience than the last 4 police chiefs yet the counsil arranged to loose them and put Seay in charge and pay him the same,if not more money. The former chiefs had extensive time in law enforcement managementas well as hands on experience in patrol and investigations. Seay has a poor performance record and lacks the trust of his subordinates. I it guess it pays toplay golf with counsil members. He is one that surely doesnt deserve the salary he is makimg.

Nice to see three people posting in so many names. Everyone on the council including the Mayor (with the exception of Seeber) has little or no experience in politics or as a councilperson. Members are asking questions about policy and procedure from the Town manager. It's not the town managers job to educate these people.
Yet council members say she is keeping things from them. It's the members responsibility to educate themselves on current events.
Many of them never even went to council meetings before they were elected.
Before you spout insults at the town manager check your own background council members. People who are upset with the Town manager are probably the ones who have asked for something the town can't offer.
Most of the people on here including the council members posting in aliases have no idea all the mandated projects that are going on in this town and how many times Foulds has saved the council and town from huge fines!
Until you guys post in your own names your fodder will be ignored by the people in this town that really care!
