The Urbanna Town Council voted unanimously Monday to appoint Bob Calves as town treasurer for the salary of $1 a year. The salary is a formality.

The town code requires the treasurer to receive and disburse money as directed by the town council.

The code also requires checks to be signed by the mayor or chairman of the finance and administration committee and countersigned by the town treasurer.

The town has been without a treasurer since former town administrator and treasurer Lewis Filling Jr. resigned both positions in March, 2011 after he was indicted for embezzling $50,371 from the Central Middlesex Volunteer Rescue Squad of Urbanna during the five years he was its treasurer.

On February 15, Filling was sentenced to 25 years in prison with all but 3.5 years suspended.

Calves, 70, regularly attends and participates as a town citizen in town council and planning committee meetings.

Calves attended MIT and founded a firm that provided trade advertising, technical writing and marketing support to businesses manufacturing data/radio equipment.

This man is an unhinged maniac. He cannot control his temper. He has an agenda and will use his office to persecute local businesses that do not comply with his whims. He is a real know-it-all, and a know-nothing at the same time. He will interpret the town's code to his benefit and at great cost the rest of us. He is vindictive to an extent that would best be described as obsessive. Nothing good will come of his holding this office!

Beware this man!

Shocked has is 100% correct, selecting this man is
just one more examples of the basic incompetence of those in Urbanna, who just seem to make blunder after blunder.

The old town deserves so much more that the continues crap that is caused by mismanagement,
Calves will prove to all the Urbanna observers this fact, just like allowing the recent 6 gun toting fraud Lewis Fillings and his buddy Abbott, his enabler, to function as a cop, while his thefts were happening.

The man from Northern Virginia is a loudmouth, want to be, and he will bite the hand that feeds
him, so wait and watch for more Urbanna destruction.
