Welcome, Ms. Garton. I hope a condition of your hiring wasn't a promise not to read the local media products. Either way, probably best for you to read the Daily Press website on your personal computer.

I hope that Ms. Gardon will let the justice system do it's job and not judge the people of Gloucester as many have. Let the accused be tried before a court of law before they are put on a cross for a slow death. It would be so much better than what is being done by the negative people here.

Are you suggesting that the county administrator has it in her grasp to thwart the justice system?

And just what is being done, pray tell, by "the negative people here?"

All aboard! Thank you Lane Ramsey for allowing the public to know Ms. Garton is precise in her job.
That is a comforting feeling now. I am sure to most people in Gloucester would agree.

Thanks for coming aboard Ms. Garton, you are well respected in Prince George County and I know the respect will be reciprocated here in Gloucester as well.

Godspeed to Lane Ramsey and Ms. Garton.

Hopefully she is delighted to be here and will serve the people not the "mafia". She needs to help this turning point not stop it.

I doubt that Buddy would vote with Altemus and Ressler anymore on ANY issue, even if it were to acknowledge that there are 24 hours in a day.

Why don't you call or email him and ask him why he voted as he did? I am on my way to do just that.

I do wish you Gloucester people with negative attitudes would just get over it. Don't you have a hobby of some kind? You are miserable in your own life so you feel like you have to drag others down to your level. If negative people ran the world we would still be in the stone age - or rapidly trying to get there. Maybe some of you should run in the next election so we can sign a recall form for you. This definitely applies to the Daily Press reporter who never has anything good to say too. Every headline is just another put down - and the negative people think he is their hero. Do you know how bad he is making Gloucester look? The system works - let it work.

Rilee should have been indicted with the rest of the clowns but the arbitrary and capricious Grand Jury chose not to because he cooperated with Hicks. If Altemus or Ressler conducted business in private then so did Rilee. This is why my friends the indictments will be dismissed and without the guilty verdicts they will not be removed from office.
