Why in the hell is someone permitted to be a city supervisor when he plead guilty for a sex crime. What is wrong with the rest of the Albermarle Board? Doesn't anyone see this situation as a problem? We won't give teachers a true raise but we let a sex offendor draw a county salary?

Just imagine the outrage if Dumler were a Republican. We'd be hearing all about the "War on Women."

To the others on the Board of Supervisors: Watch out if, while debating an issue, Dumler states he'll "stand behind you".

This man pled guilty to sexually battering a woman. He should be tossed out on his ear. Total disgrace.

I love the reporter's warped sense of the need to balance when she says the response has been mixed, with some saying Dumler should stay. The response looks like it has been at least 80/20 for him to go (perhaps more); "mixed" is a gross understatement.
Also, it is good to see the first salvo shot from the BOS for him to get his rear end off of the Board. Boyd's comment gives you a good clue as to where the BOS is with this issue.

Get well Ron Jeremy!

According to the "Daily Progress," the voters of Scottsville District can initiate a recall trial if 10 percent of qualified voters (based on turnout in the last election) sign a petition requesting it; according to the Progress, this would be a minimum of 372 qualified signatures. The petition is submitted to the Court, and a trial date is set. Interested parties in Scottsville District can look up the exact procedure.
Will you ever hear about this on NBC affiliate WVIR (after all, it's a Democrat involved)?

Get him out! How can he do any good on the board when he's out doing the things he pleads guilty to?

This is a slap in the face of the Scottsville district and the Albemarle board of Supervisors to allow Dumler to continue as a Representative. Its not a Republican/Democrat issue it is just plain ignorance to keep him in his seat. If it was just an average Joe, he would be in jail and stripped of his rights and most likely be convicted as a felon.
Just get rid of him and move on to issues that need attention and get an interim person for Dumler's seat.

If he was an average Joe he never would've been charged in the first place. Worse than what he did happens every single weekend in the frats and dorms, and when was the last time you saw a UVA student charged with rape or sexual battery or whatever. While I think he should resign as well, he was only charged because he's a public figure. You might not like it, but that's the truth.

One person is convicted for Indescent Exposure and must be on the Sex Offender Registry for life, Dumler pleaded quilty and does not have to register?

Explain to me how the system works? If you have money for a lawyer you are saved by the bell! Justice is not served on all.

An honorable man who truly regretted what he did, would resign for the good of the county.

Dumler, should apologize to the people of Albemarle, & resign for the public good. He should serve his punishment & if he decides in the future to run, the people of Albemarle will decide his fate. As Thoms Jefferson said: "When a man assumes a public trust,
he should consider himself as public property."
