And Kristin Szakos wants ANOTHER term as a spendthrift councilor. Throw money at a problem and hope it goes away.

Her "perfect storm" issues include an American economy on a four-year death spiral thanks to the President she and hubby Joe (Organizing for America) Szakos slobber over.

Charlottesville City has fleeced Albemarle County for decades thanks to that bogus revenue-sharing deal, and it STILL overspends. It will not institute a more fiscally responsible method of budgeting and spending, whines it doesn't have enough money for schools...yet runs annual multi-million dollar surpluses at the end of each year that get doled out as political pork.

You get the government you elect, Charlottesville.

Things are bound to get better once the marijuana penalty is reduced and our local luminaries can feel safer..........
