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?
Speaking for the taxpayers in Gloucester County; we want the Board of Supervisors to answer these questions. Why are we paying full time salaries for part time staff?
Why are we paying for a County Attorney that you have made into a Court Jester? Granted he is entertaining and quite a site but that is a lot of money to spend for 2 hours of entertainment a month and you did not let him perform during the last Board of Supervisors meeting. I was disappointed. Although Brenda was not a bad stand in as County Jester in the last meeting and if you keep getting her to answer for the County Attorney in the meetings in a month or two we will vote for her as our favorite Jester, she still needs a little more practice. Can she juggle or get a better script about a subject she knows something about?
Also, we are paying for a full time County Administrator and you are not allowing her to do this? Or does she want to be the County Attorney or County Jester we are not sure which based on her performance at the last meeting? Is she qualified to be our County Attorney? She still needs work to take over as County Jester, in my opinion. Maybe we should let her run the County and get the employees back on the job and out of the fast food establishments unless they are picking up food for her and The "Kiser".
Speaking of The "Kiser", you pay for him even if the School Board made this selection. His final solution for our youth in the design and placement of the new swamp school does not appear to have the education, safety, and interest of our youth as the primary goal in this new school? We have several members of the Board that claim to have interest in our schools and youth, it does not appear this is the case to some tax payers. It appears that you have developed a final solution that is more fitting as the end of our youth rather than the education of our youth. You have forgotten the most important part of the new swamp school; you need to have a huge bronze plaque with The "Kiser’s" likeness, his name, along with the name of all the school board, and board of supervisors that are responsible for this facility. Do not place it too close to the school we do not want it to sink into the swamp with the school. We want to remember all of the people responsible for bring us this swamp school.
Based on the continued actions or inaction's of this Board it appears you have a total contempt for the tax payers, Virginia Constitution, Virginia Code, the US Constitution and oath of office.
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.
