He has prosecutorial experience from Danville. Mr. Hurd has challenge Ward in previous elections because he wants to make Middlesex a safe community.

I hope that you are correct, but I see there are some concerns of his ability. I also notice that this election Hurd ran unopposed and lost previous elections.

He has a few big cases to try soon, I hope to view this guy in action and see for myself before Judging him.

Looking at him more closely I see he is also on the board of The Urbanna Oyster Foundation, I would like to suggest that he should consider promoting some safety changes for the next Festival to come.

We are lucky to have another good commonwealth attorney. Full time position should make our county much safer. Mr. Hurd does get involved with the community. He is a good civic leader.

How can you make such a judgement call as that? What has he proven in his 3 months job performance and 4 years in training? Another good commonwealth attorney? If you were to see Hurd in action, the word "confused" would come to mind. Hopefully, while he is getting his job-in-training, nothing else serious will happen in this county. I think the "Officials" have more than they can and probably want to handle.

Interesting post, I Think the problem is they don't know how to handle all these issues or they are just to damn lazy. I hope what ever it is you are refering to, comes out of the wood works, I'm very curious to see whats next. I'll be watching. It seems Middlesex is getting the attention they asked for. Remember the complaints about the daily Press? Well there you have it!

I think this guy doesn't have what it takes. In court he looks very out of place, He doesn't seem to be organized a bit. For example, at one court hearing, he had to go out to his car to get a file needed to be able to try a defendant. The judge laughed and shook his head after Hurd left the court room.

I think the CA should act professional and be prepared at all times. This guy seems to be wishy washy.

I'm not sure if I would say he doesn't have what it takes. I see he has been in law for some time now. Maybe theres more to the story! I see he is having some issues on the other blogs too, you think this has something to do with it? maybe he feels nervous, who knows, but he is obligated to do a proper job. If you have complaints you need to make, then you should contact the Virginia State bar. I think that is the agency that handles the complaints. the link for this is posted below.

Hurd, you really impress me with your lack of being prepared for your cases in court. How did you expect to convict that Mexican and you didn't even know his age? The Judge didn't like it de he? Sent it out of the courtroom more than once, lol. I think you need to step down and give the job back to Jimmy or to someone that does his homework.
