Gloucester County Board of Supervisors new start

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? How about the County Code?

"The Land of the Life Worth Living" for everyone in the county.

I watched your first meeting with much interest. Congratulations to Mr Orth and Mr Chriscoe as chair and assistant, respectively.

Mr. Orth you had all the right words reading the Code of Ethics. Are the same ones you have had in the past? Four of the board members that are returning have played fast and loose with the Code of Ethics, Code of Conduct and your Oath of Office. We are watching to see if you mean what you say. Talking the talk is easy let’s see you walk the walk.

Some of the rumors that are going around are disturbing in that they show you have not changed your ways. Prove to us they are rumors and that you intend to be a fiscal responsible Board. We have three new members that are showing they do want to be fiscally responsible. As President Reagan said “Trust but verify.” We are watching and will report on your actions.

What are you doing to get rid of the bad county code? Mr. Hutson brought up the made up law by Ted the court jester Wilmot in the December meeting for one? Why is it not on the agenda for next month? Is Ms. Garton going to be a full time county resident or are you going to continue to allow her to be part time with a full time salary? Can we afford a part time Emergency Management Coordinator? Things do not only happen during the week. I think that is why Ms. Garton makes the big bucks to be in the county not someplace else?

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.

“For the Common Good. “
