Open Letter to the Citizens of Gloucester County Virginia
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? How about the County Code?
"The Land of the Life Worth Living" for everyone in the county.
I am sorry I was not able to attend but I was working to clean up from the wind shear . But with most meetings I do watch them and provide feedback when appropriate. I do prefer the web broadcast so I can pause and take notes and listen again when needed.
I heard both boards say it is about the children. I do find it hard to believe when you were sitting in a several million dollar school administration building away from the children. You talked about losing Federal and Virginia Funding; could this be because you have failed to meet teaching standards?
Mr Thompson published a map showing the bypass. Mr. Hutson said sell the old Page site and kept insisting. Looking at the map this is a valuable piece of property as both boards were saying during the meeting. Mr. Records said it has good connection to Rt 614 Hickory Fork Road. Wow this is on Mr. Thompson’s map how can it be? Also the discussion was on the industrial park? Not really part of the joint boards discussion unless it was to talk about its close proximity to the old Page site and a possible development, along with commercial business development by neighbors. Could it tie into the Barron’s housing development also? One has to wonder are you trying to develop an area like Newport News City Center?
When will Target be building next to Home Depot? I will be glad to have someplace to shop besides Wal-Mart. What other retail is coming to the area?
The Kiser was correct when he said the School Board Budget is inflated.
When will you have your next joint meeting? I learned a lot. Thanks for getting together.
Bring back the rule of legal laws and responsible budgets 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.

"Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing." --Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1791
