Constitution Day

Open Letter to the Citizens of Gloucester County Virginia

September 17, 2013 is the 226th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution.  What a perfect time to tell our Supervisors it is time to restore our constitutional government (US and Virginia) to the County of Gloucester.  When this is restored we will have "The Land of the Life Worth Living"

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?

Mr. Thompson has shown in recent stories that the County Manager and Attorney are responsible for the day to day running our County Government.  He has also shown they are either unable or unwilling to do their jobs.  What has been done to make county employees obey county and state code and stop using the vehicles for personal use? What has been done to remove illegal code from the County Code? Sounds like both of these people can be fired with cause.  Maybe they should reimburse the county for the expenses they have incurred for the County for their activities that are questionable?  If these two people find following Virginia Constitution and code as well as County Code we are better off without them costing us more money.  The Board of Supervisors deserves competent advisors and administrators upholding County Code and ensuring the employees know and follow these rules.  To still find County vehicles parked at local restaurants and illegal code on the County Code is not acceptable.  If Mr. Thompson has to do Ted the county jesters job then the county should hire Mr. Thompson as a consultant since he is not a lawyer and reduce Ted’s pay to cover actual work being done.

Tell your Board representatives no more ”criminals with no regard for the law,” illegal code, and county employees not willing to follow the law need to be fired for cause with no severance pay or retirement. We deserve "The Land of the Life Worth Living" but until the board is told we will not put up with their behavior that violates their oath of office we will not have "The Land of the Life Worth Living" only the few that are friends of the ruling class with have these things.  This is not for the Common Good.

I am not a lawyer and cannot give legal advice.  Our founding fathers used common sense and Christian scripture when establishing our founding documents. 

“For the Common Good. “

Alexander James Jay

P.S.  This was shared with me on Sunday afternoon and it fits with our Commonwealth “For the Common Good”.  “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.” ― John Wesley
