Open Letter to the Citizens of Gloucester County Virginia
“For the Common Good. “
The Virginia Constitution was written for us to limit the government intrusion into our lives. Have you ever read the Constitution of the United States? How about the Constitution of Virginia?
Why is it that the County Jester who serves as the Board of Supervisors Public Affairs Officer, Court Jester, and County Attorney in his spare time, can send a reply to Mr. Thompson within hours when Mr Thompson presented one of the county codes as in violation of the Dillon Rule and he has not replied in over two weeks when Mr Thompson shows the County is in violation of one of the codes? He must be real busy Jestering! The violation of the animal control code Mr Thompson pointed out to the county would have any of us in court if we violated this code. See his story for details. However, the county is giving itself a by “Criminals with no regard for the law” and the rule of law. If we had an educational system in Gloucester I bet the Middle School civics class could do a better job running the county. They know not to break the rules and laws and would not let county employees run personal errands on county time in county vehicles. Maybe before the new swamp school sinks into the Muck they can teach classes of value? I heard you can make a bet in Los Vegas that the length of time we will pay for the bond will outlast the swamp school.
Based on the actions of this Board it appears they have total contempt for the Virginia Constitution, Virginia Code, and the US Constitution. We need to ensure anyone we elect to the Board is willing to follow the oath of office and believes in constitutional law. This is the same type of behavior we can expect if we reelect anyone that was a former Board member or previously on the school board.
I look forward to Mr Thompson’s next county code violation since the board is not willing or able to fix the illegal code it is nice to see someone show the kind of oath breakers we have representing us on the board. Bring back the rule of legal laws and make this "The Land of the Life Worth Living" for everyone in the county.
I am not a lawyer and cannot give legal advice. Our founding fathers used common sense and Christian scripture when establishing our founding documents.

P.S. "The good Education of Youth has been esteemed by wise Men in all Ages, as the surest Foundation of the Happiness both of private Families and of Common-wealths. Almost all Governments have therefore made it a principal Object of their Attention, to establish and endow with proper Revenues, such Seminaries of Learning, as might supply the succeeding Age with Men qualified to serve the Publick with Honour to themselves, and to their Country."--Benjamin Franklin, Proposals Relating to the Education of Youth in Pensilvania, 1749
