I've lived in Virginia my entire life. So let's talk about stupid arguments, look around the state. Administrator's and attorneys rarely change just because a new election. This isn't the national or even the state politics where parties rule and politicos are placed into position of power by the ruling party. Local elections are the closest thing to what our founding fathers wanted...the people make the decisions and electing leaders who carry out the majorities desires.
Based on the outcry of the people against the actions of your old board, I'd say they didn't do the will of the people. And I know many people, who supported both TA and Ressler until they did what they did and were demanding their resignations after Jan 2/3, 2008. They even wanted Whitley to go because they felt he had been there too long, but they wre very angry on how it was done.
And even at the national level, they don't do midnight firings and guarded watches as people clean out their desks. Nothing of the sort. Talk about stupid, you're statements make no sense.
the only time there isn't a change, is because the same ole group stays incharge. Please back up such a stupid statement with facts

What a self serving liar you are. The people acted because of lies put out by a lying reporter who calls himself a christian. He's an evil devil, just like satan, who wraps lies in 'almost truths' to sway the public. In the end, he'll be the ass in court paying for his crimes.

Bill, you are blinded by hatred and by your loyalty to the foul 4. I suggest you go to a good therapist and do some talk therapy. You need help with your refusal in seeing the truth. And they way you are going after Matt Sabo is going to get you in hot water. You need to back off.

Matt Sabo? I'm sorry, I don't see anywhere where the name matt sabo is used. I see where the person you label as bill calls someone matt, but never 'matt sabo'. It would be very hard to make the connection between exactly which matt is referrred to. Very difficult. And just what hot water are you talking about? I'd be real careful if I were you. There are many 'bills' in this county that carry concealed weapons and are not afraid to use it for defense. Not afraid at all. Not afraid, at all. I could arrange a meeting if you want?

Mike Nicely retired when Stanaway lost. Doss is the chief deputy. At least the last time I checked.

To what end will I be served by doing this? I'm a citizen of the county, nothing more. Just someone who has been a citizen for over twenty years and have watched the local politics the entire time. So what do I gain? Well, I do gain an honest board that doesn't represent a small group of supporters. One which is you.

Sounds like what, Whitley and Stuck did, they resigned, but wanted to keep their jobs. Guess you wanted Whitley to stick around to show his replacement the job? One that could sign for the new board, another to tell him where? Oh that's right, it goes against the state constitution, for County Governments, but why let that stand in the way. Well why didn't the 4 let the Old Board, pick Whitley's replacement, because, it's a command change that's why.

but but the people that voted, that voted for them didn't want, them to make changes. Why did they feel they needed to start making changes, on the first day of business, because that's what happens when, elected officials, take Office. Well then why did so many get upset, because they are stupid, and were lead to believe it was wrong, from the opposing side. Just like Bush fired 12 attorneys, but Clinton fired 38, but the Democrats, took Bush admin. to cour.t

What scares me most behind this is that no matter what side of the board, is elected, the same small, group is still, going to be in charge, and they, are not elected Officials.

How many people in Gloucester own over 100 acres, how many own over 300, how many own over 500, how many own over 1000, 2000? How would a house on 1/2 acre, selling for over $400,000.00 effect them? What side of the board protects, the larger land owners? Which side of the board has political connections? How much in taxes would a 1000 acres pay, in York County, VS Gloucester. New Kent, James City? What would it take for the Board to protect, the common man?

If somebody was to run for the BOS, and said they would reduce the property taxes on 95% of all property owners, which side, of the BOS, would they be on? What would have happen if Hicks had came out, and said everything was legal, and you voted them in, this is what happens, when you change direction.

Go ahead and make stuff up. You're no better than bill. All I was saying it that the foul four didn't have to fire Whitley and Stuck the way they did...Ordering them off county property and threaten to have them arrested if they returned before 8 AM. And at 8 AM they had one hour to clean out their desks, seize their computers, all under the watchfull eye of a deputy and Altemus (and Ressler watching Stuck).

If they had told both Whitley and Stuck, they were moving in another direction and they were going to end his tenure on Thursday (Jan. 3rd), give him time to cleanout their desks, allow them the time to say goodbye to their staffs. None of this would have happened.

You still don't get it. It wasn't the firing, but the way it was carried out that infuriated people.

But you're just an extention of the spin doctors of those foul four.

Again you want to mix partisan politics with local elections. Two different things. The change people wanted was a board that worked together. But what the people got was an egomanical tyrant who wanted to show not Whitley and Stuck, she was in charge, but the staff and the other supervisors.
