Gloucester, VA Waste Fraud and Abuse Petition For County Government

We have recently created a petition that we have sent to the Board of Supervisors and are publishing it here for everyone to see.  You can help by sending a copy of this petition to the Board of Supervisors.  All you have to do is copy the petition below into an email and send it to the email address listed below.  Be sure to add your name to the bottom of the petition.

  It's that simple.  This can save all of us taxpayers a good deal of money if properly put into place.

We The People:

Gloucester County, Virginia
Board of Supervisors

This is a petition to request that you consider the hiring of a Waste Fraud and Abuse specialist to investigate areas of such throughout county government as well as school board government.  It is believed that a person hired to do so can cover both sides of county government.  The reasons for such are as follows.

§ 15.2-2511.2. Duties of local government auditors.

A. As used in this section:

"Abuse" means the excessive or improper use of something, or the employment of something in a manner contrary to the natural or legal rules for its use; the intentional destruction, diversion, manipulation, misapplication, maltreatment, or misuse of resources owned or operated by the locality; or extravagant or excessive use so as to abuse one's position or authority.

"Fraud" means the intentional deception perpetrated by an individual or individuals, or an organization or organizations, either internal or external to local government, that could result in a tangible or intangible benefit to themselves, others, or the locality or could cause detriment to others or the locality. Fraud includes a false representation of a matter of fact, whether by words or by conduct, by false or misleading statements, or by concealment of that which should have been disclosed, which deceives and is intended to deceive.

"Waste" means the intentional or unintentional, thoughtless or careless expenditure, consumption, mismanagement, use, or squandering of resources owned or operated by the locality to the detriment or potential detriment of the locality. Waste also includes incurring unnecessary costs because of inefficient or ineffective practices, systems, or controls.

B. Any fraud, waste, and abuse auditor appointed by the local governing body of any county, city, or town having a population of at least 10,000, or any town constituting a separate school division regardless of its population, who by charter, ordinance, or statute has responsibility for conducting an investigation of any officer, department or program of such body, shall be responsible for administering a telephone hotline, and a website, if cost-effective, through which employees and residents of the locality may report anonymously any incidence of fraud, waste, or abuse committed by any such officer, or within any such department or program, of that body. Such auditor may inform employees of the locality of the hotline and website, if any, and the conditions of anonymity, through the conspicuous posting of announcements in the locality's personnel newsletters, articles in local newspapers issued daily or regularly at average intervals, hotline posters on local employee bulletin boards, periodic messages on local employee payroll check stubs, or other reasonable efforts.

Such auditor shall determine the authenticity of every allegation received on the hotline or website and ensure that investigation and resolution activities are undertaken in response to any such authentic allegation in the most cost-effective and confidential manner available; provided, however, that the officer shall assign responsibility for investigation and resolution to other investigative and law-enforcement personnel where such responsibility is prescribed by general law and where appropriate to avoid duplicating or replacing existing investigation and resolution functions.
(2006, c. 597.)

It is believed that such an auditor can and will save the county taxpayers a substantial sum of money.

Very Truly;

Now just put your name and send to

Statement of Governor Bob McDonnell on Tax Credit for the Rehabilitation of Historic Schools

RICHMOND – Governor Bob McDonnell today issued the following statement regarding the need to update the IRS code to allow the federal Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit, passed on a bipartisan basis in 1986, to apply to local school modernization projects.  The governor’s statement follows a meeting this afternoon with Paul Goldman, former chairman of the Democratic Party of Virginia, and long-time proponent of “fixing the glitch”, as he calls it, due to the unintended negative consequences which have long been documented. 

“I enjoyed meeting with Mr. Goldman and his team this afternoon to discuss a potential school construction initiative that can have the practical impact of being a major “instruction initiative” at the same time. It is harder to ensure that a child gets the very best possible 21st century education when he or she attends a school originally built 50 years ago. Unfortunately, when President Reagan and lawmakers passed legislation to encourage renovation of the nation's declining infrastructure, they didn't fully appreciate all the implications in the new language in the federal tax code. The problem we face is called the “prior use rule” and it applies in a limited number of circumstances, such as when a tax-exempt local school board wants to modernize an aged K-12 facility for continued use. Since the post-modernization use remains the same as the pre-modernization use - a local K-12 facility - it falls under the “prior use rule.” This rule says private investors, willing to take on all the risks of modernizing the school to the requirements of the school board, cannot earn the so-called “historic” tax credits. But if the same investors use the same amount of money to modernize the same building into a new use, then they earn the “historic” credits.

“This distinction makes no economic sense, and it serves no useful public policy given the nation's pressing need for modern schools. I have previously joined Senator Mark Warner, Senator Tim Kaine, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and many others in publicly supporting eliminating the “prior use rule” block to historic credit financing for qualifying school facilities. We all agree: we are handcuffing the private sector while our school buildings continue to age. As Senator Kaine wrote while serving as Governor, this issue has ultimately raised the costs of many vital education projects to the point that they are unaffordable. Indeed, the practical effect is to force localities to pay 30-40% more than would be the case if this policy were eliminated. If localities could utilize these tax credits, they would save dramatically on local construction costs. Those savings would then be available to go into the classroom for instruction, without raising local taxes. 

“In 2009, I first voiced my support of former-Governor George Allen and Paul Goldman’s efforts to make this change to the federal tax code.  Senator Kaine demonstrated how the use of the tax credit for the improvement of a school, Maggie Walker High School in Richmond, could produce tremendous savings for taxpayers, while providing students with a world-class learning facility. Eliminating the “prior use rule” would unleash the private sector to not only help modernize schools across the Commonwealth, but such projects would create tens of thousands of jobs, and enable hundreds of thousands of students to get a better education, besides all the financial benefits previously discussed.

“While it will take the Congress and the President to enact this fix, states and localities are the ones ultimately responsible for educating our children. Washington policy makers need to address this as part of their tax reform and job creation agendas. In that regard, I am pleased to see this often overlooked issue gaining prominence in the campaign for Governor this year with Mr. Cuccinelli and Mr. McAuliffe in support. I hope they both will continue to propose ways by which we can improve education infrastructure in the Commonwealth. Those states that out compete us on education today will have the skilled population necessary to attract the job-creating private sector businesses of tomorrow. We can’t fall behind in the ongoing effort to ensure that our economy continues to grow. That starts with ensuring every student gets a world-class education.

“I look forward to working with leaders on both sides of the aisle in Virginia and in Washington to get this long overdue fix passed into law, and to continue to improve our significant reforms to public education in our Commonwealth.”

Governor McDonnell Announces State Rainy Day Fund to Exceed $1 Billion at Close of FY 2016

Virginia General Assembly

Balance Will be 3rd Largest in Virginia History
Fund Will Have Grown 350% from Close of Fiscal Year 2010 to End of Fiscal Year 2016
Recovery of Fund Puts Commonwealth in Strong Financial Position

RICHMOND- Three days before he delivers his fourth and final annual ‘end of the fiscal year’ address to the members of the money committees of the General Assembly, Governor Bob McDonnell announced that a portion of his remarks will highlight the news that Virginia’s Rainy Day Fund is on pace to exceed $1 billion by the close of Fiscal Year (FY) 2016. The projection represents a dramatic upswing in the balance sheet of the Commonwealth’s emergency cash reserve, which stood at only $295.2 million at the conclusion of FY 2010, midway through the governor’s first year in office. The growth in the Rainy Day Fund, made possible through conservative budgeting in Richmond and ongoing private sector job-creation across the Commonwealth, helps to restore the state’s financial health and places Virginia in a strong position for both future economic growth as well as the navigation of any potential future financial downturns.

            Based on the size of the overall budget surplus, the McDonnell Administration’s fourth in as many years, the Constitution prescribes an additional $313.9 million will be deposited to the Rainy Day Fund in FY’s 2015 and 2016. The governor will include that amount in the new budget he will propose this December. The amount is based on actual collections of general fund revenues in fiscal year 2013 and the official budget estimate for general fund revenues in FY 2014. The governor has previously announced that the Commonwealth concluded FY 2013 with a revenue surplus of over $261 million. This is the first time a single gubernatorial administration has posted four consecutive revenue surpluses since the Allen Administration in the mid-1990’s. On Monday the governor will announce the second half of Virginia’s final surplus amount: savings within state government generated through the administration’s conservative fiscal policies. Taken together the revenue surplus and savings surplus will provide the total surplus amount for the Commonwealth for FY 2013.

            Speaking about the rapid, positive turnaround in the financial health of the state’s Rainy Day Fund, the governor remarked, “We all know these are uncertain fiscal times. In the states, that uncertainty is only heightened by the failure of the federal government to provide budgetary certainty and make the long-term decisions necessary for proper planning moving forward. With that in mind, it is crucial that we have the liquidity necessary to weather any potential disruptions and downturns in the years ahead. That’s the role of Virginia’s Rainy Day Fund, which was wisely created by the General Assembly after Governor Doug Wilder devised the smart idea of a “Revenue Reserve.” This Fund provides the Commonwealth with a financial safety-net of sorts. It is also watched closely by the bond rating firms that are so important to our financial standing in the global markets.”

            The governor continued, “With today’s announcement, I am pleased to note that a significant portion of the revenue surplus for this year, as has been the case previously in our administration as well, will not be spent.  Rather, it will be saved and deposited to the Rainy Day Fund allowing that Fund to grow to nearly $688 million by the end of FY 2014 and cross $1 billion by the end of FY 2016. That is the result of our four consecutive budget surpluses, which have provided the means by which we have been able to replenish Virginia’s nest egg. In our first year in office, the Fund was only $295 million. By the end of 2016 it will have grown by 350%. It will reach the third-highest amount in its history, and the highest amount since the end of FY 2007, just prior to the economic downturn. The work to restore the Rainy Day Fund is yet another bipartisan accomplishment in Richmond. We’ve budgeted conservatively, saved taxpayer dollars and properly planned for the years ahead. These steps have put the Commonwealth in a much stronger financial position than we saw just three years ago. I thank the members of the General Assembly for their work with us in achieving this important step forward for Virginia’s fiscal future.”

RICHMOND, Virginia (Reuters) - Democrat Terry McAuliffe is up 6 percentage points over Republican rival Ken Cuccinelli among voters likely to cast ballots in the Virginia gubernatorial election in November, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

McAuliffe, a businessman and the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, holds a 48 percent to 42 percent lead over Cuccinelli, Virginia's attorney general.

"It seems obvious that Governor Bob McDonnell's political troubles are hurting fellow Republican Cuccinelli. Guilt by association may not be fair but it sure is politically powerful," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

McDonnell, once mentioned as a GOP presidential contender in 2016, is under investigation by state and federal authorities.

They are looking into more than $150,000 in gifts and loans reportedly given to McDonnell and his family by Jonnie Williams, the CEO of Star Scientific Inc, a dietary supplement company that was seeking to do business with the state.

McDonnell, who is limited to one term, has made a public apology for the embarrassment that his actions, and those of his family, have caused the state. He also has said he has repaid the loans and has returned the tangible gifts that he and his family received from Star Scientific's CEO.

Larry Sabato, director of the Center of Politics at the University of Virginia, said the Quinnipiac poll was significant because it is the first poll to survey members of the public who are likely to vote.

"But it's August," Sabato said. "We are going to have some defining events in the fall, including the feds' decision on whether or not to indict Governor McDonnell."

He said the key to the election is voter turnout.

If Democrats can bring out voters in large numbers in an off-year election, McAuliffe likely will win, according to Sabato.

"If we have another extremely low 40 percent turnout like 2009, Cuccinelli will likely win," he said, reflecting the sentiments of other political commentators familiar with Virginia's voting patterns.

Brown of the Quinnipiac Poll said the Virginia campaign has been "light on issues and big on personalities, and it is in the area of personal characteristics that McAuliffe has a small edge."

The Quinnipiac University poll was conducted August 14 to 19 and surveyed 1,129 likely voters. The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.

One thing we know about polls, they are easily fixed and mean nothing.  We can rig a poll to say anything we want it to say and you would be hard pressed to say the poll was not fair.  It's to early to call this one but we will tell you who the winner is going to be before the election comes.  Early indications say it's going to be Ken Cuccinelli.  We are basing that on what we are seeing from the top.  Follow the money.  Cuccinelli is getting more cash.  Learn to read the real signals.  The real fixers are not yet speaking so you can't call it until they do.

One thing we do not play here is the party ticket game.  We could care less if you are a democrat or a republican or even a libertarian, or better, yet, we do not care that you are a die hard socialist or communist.  It means nothing to us either way.  What we care about are leaders who will support the Constitution and Bill of Rights of both the Federal Government as well as the Commonwealth of Virginia.  And no, that is not tea party.  That is just common sense.

Report Finds “Probably Carcinogenic” Chemicals in All Municipal Water Samples Tested

Česky: Pitná voda - kohoutek Español: Agua potable

By Dr. Mercola
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has once again released a report that should grab your attention. After analyzing water samples from 201 municipal water systems from 43 states, EWG found chemicals considered “probable human carcinogens” in every single water system they tested.
The watchdog organization wants the government to clean up the sources of public drinking water, thereby reducing the need for chemical treatment.1
The report “Water Treatment Contaminants: Toxic Trash in Drinking Water” was sparked by concerns about water contamination in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, which spilled tens of millions of gallons of sewage into waterways along the East Coast.
But the results of their analysis clearly indicate a far more widespread and concerning problem that superstorms merely inflame.
The problem is that chlorine and other water treatment chemicals, in addition to being somewhat toxic in and of themselves, react with ordinary organic particles in the water ( manure from livestock, dead animals, fallen leaves, etc.) to create hundreds of extremely toxic byproducts, which aren’t monitored or regulated at all.
These toxic byproducts have been labeled “disinfection byproducts,” or “DBPs,” and there are 600 we know about and probably hundreds more that we don’t, says EWG’s senior scientist Renee Sharp.2
Most people are not aware that DBPs are actually 1,000 times more toxic than chlorine. Just like with ionizing radiation and mercury, any exposure at all in concerning and potentially toxic; there is no safe level.

The Byproducts of Chlorination May Be Deadly

Chlorine is the only disinfectant that has been extensively studied, but now many water treatment plants are using another disinfectant called chloramine, the health effects of which are largely unknown. Chloramine is a combination of chlorine and ammonia.3 More than one in five Americans are drinking tap water treated with chloramine.
Chloramine stays in the water system longer than chlorine and is difficult to remove—it can’t be removed by boiling, distilling, or by standing uncovered. Its vapors can accumulate in indoor air and concentrate in an enclosed area, such as your shower stall, bathroom, kitchen, or apartment.
Chloramines combine with organic matter in water supplies to create iodoacids and nitrosamines, which are extremely toxic. According to David Sedlak of UC Berkeley:4
“Nitrosamines are the compounds that people warned you about when they told you shouldn’t be eating those nitrite-cured hot dogs... They’re about a thousand times more carcinogenic than the disinfection byproducts that we’d been worried about with regular old chlorine.”
There are three principal types of chlorination byproducts, known to produce dangerous health effects:
  • Trihalomethanes (THMs): Found to cause cancer in laboratory animals, and trigger the production of free radicals in your body; chloroform is an example of a trihalomethane; THMs are associated with bladder cancer, gestational and developmental problems
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): Lead to central nervous system depression and drowsinessand can irritate your skin and mucous membranes
  • Haloacetic Acids (HAAs): May cause liver disease in test animals at very high levels, and is a class B2 probable human carcinogen associated with neurological problems, growth retardation, low birth weight, and sperm toxicity

Why I Recommend Filtering Your Tub and Shower Water...

Scientists now suspect trihalomethanes in your tap water may be responsible for thousands of cases of bladder cancer each year, based on mounting evidence from multiple studies. But the risk to pregnant women and their unborn babies is also very concerning. Trihalomethanes are associated with numerous developmental and reproductive abnormalities, including stillbirth, miscarriage, low birth weight, and neural tube defects. The neural tube refers to the anatomical structure that develops into your baby’s brain and spinal cord.
Just the simple act of showering in treated water, in which you have absorption through both your skin and lungs, may pose a significant health risk to you—and to your unborn child, if you are pregnant. Numerous studies have shown that showering and bathing are important routes of exposure for trihalomethanes and may actually represent MORE of your total exposure than the water you drink.
According to EWG:
“The EPA standard for trihalomethanes is based on preventing bladder cancer, but the agency has noted that these chemicals may present reproductive and developmental risks as well. A spike that lasts three months exposes a pregnant woman and her fetus to excessive trihalomethane for an entire trimester, a critical window of development. Scientific research has shown that such intensive exposure can have serious consequences for the child.”
Analysts have found that trihalomethane levels in public water systems vary throughout the year, depending on factors such as farming cycles. But the EPA regulates the chemicals based on an annual average, which means that spikes in the byproducts may go undetected.

EPA-Regulated Chemicals are Just a Drop in the Bucket

As concerning as trihalomethanes are, they are just the tip of the iceberg—there are hundreds of other chemicals finding their way into your water supply. The EPA regulates only nine pollutants generated by chlorine or chloramine treatment—four trihalomethanes and five haloacetic acids. These nine regulated chemicals represent less than two percent of the more than 600 unwanted chemicals created by the interaction of water treatment disinfectants and pollutants in source water.
The legal limits for the nine regulated chemicals are not what either the agency or many independent scientists believe is truly safe. Rather, the regulations represent political compromises that take into account the costs and feasibility of treatment.
When you add up the total chemicals contaminating public drinking water, the number is beyond staggering. According to William Marks, author of Water Voices from Around the World, there are more than 116,000 human-made chemicals now detected in public water systems!
In much of the country, farming is a major source of organic pollution in drinking water and a contributor to water treatment contamination. However, with the exception of large confined animal feeding operations, farm businesses are exempt from the pollution control requirements of the federal Clean Water Act. Few states have the authority to compel farms to adopt practices that would reduce agricultural pollution reaching rivers, lakes and bays.
Shockingly, raising concerns about the quality of your local drinking water without verifiable evidence of your claims may now be considered “an act of terrorism” according to Sherwin Smith, deputy director of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC). As recently reported by
“According to Smith, you better make sure your claims can be verified by the water department employees before submitting them. In the video recording, which was posted following the outrage from citizens over the entire event, Smith is heard saying: 'But you need to make sure that when you make water quality complaints you have a basis, because federally, if there’s no water quality issues, that can be considered under Homeland Security an act of terrorism.'”

Other Chemicals You Can’t See or Taste

Besides DBPs, American drinking water has also been found to contain a host of toxic chemicals, many of which are hormonally active in humans. Some of the most common chemical contaminants include:
  • MTBE (Methyl-tert-butyl Ether): A chemical added to fuel to raise octane number; a potential human carcinogen at high doses
  • Atrazine: According to the documentary FLOW, this US herbicide, banned in the European Union, is the most common water contaminant in the US. Atrazine is an endocrine disruptor known to feminize animals, and is linked with numerous reproductive problems, breast and prostate cancer, and impaired immune function in humans
  • Pharmaceutical Drugs: A 2008 report found a multitude of drugs in the drinking water of at least 51 million Americans, including pain relievers, cancer drugs, antidepressants, oral contraceptives, blood pressure and cholesterol drugs
  • Glyphosate (Roundup): This toxic herbicide is carcinogenic in minute amounts and is linked to more than 20 adverse health effects, including cancer, birth defects and infertility; unfortunately, glyphosate is turning up in the bloodstreams of people all over the world
  • Hexavalent Chromium (Chromium-6): Otherwise known as the “Erin Brockovich chemical,” hexavalent chromium is classified as another “probable carcinogen;” EWG found it in the drinking water of 89 percent of the cities sampled

Don’t Be Duped by Bottled Water!

Consumers are frequently mislead into thinking bottled water is safer than tap water, but sometimes it’s even MORE contaminated, as bottled water is less regulated than tap water. Studies reveal that about 40 percent of bottled water is actually tap water, possibly with no additional filtering. When testing bottled water, EWG discovered 38 contaminants in 10 brands, including DBPs, nitrates, caffeine, arsenic, Tylenol, bacteria and industrial chemicals.
Disposable plastic water bottles are massively polluting our planet. According to the Container Recycling Institute, in the US alone more than 67 million plastic water bottles are discarded each day, adding to an enormous plastic garbage patch swirling around in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Bottled water is a serious environmental hazard.

What is the BEST Water You Can Drink?

The finest sources of water in the world are gravity-fed mountain springs, accessed directly from where they emerge from the earth. This water is naturally filtered and structured by the earth itself, and even contains beneficial living organisms, like certain types of algae.
If you're up to the task, you can collect your own spring water to meet your drinking water needs. There is a Find a Spring website that helps you locate the spring nearest you. The website also allows you to add a spring that is not currently in the database. If you don't live near a mountain, don't despair, as just about any spring is better than all other available options.
Typically, natural springs are monitored for contaminants by local municipalities and, best of all, most of these springs are FREE! You can easily store 10 five-gallon jugs in most cars, which can be purchased online. Glass is best, but it is heavy, so you want to use three-gallon glass jars instead. Just remember to wrap glass bottles with some blankets or towels so they don't bang against each other in your car, and break.

Recommendations for In-Home Water Filtration

If collecting natural spring water is not an option, you can filter your water at home. The best solution is to install a whole housewater filtration system. This not only protects your body (inside and out), but also your appliances. I recommend systems that use at least 60 pounds of filter media and are capable of generating eight or more gallons per minute, which makes it possible to handle multiple water applications simultaneously (showers, laundry, and kitchen). This size serves up to a 3,200 square foot home. Of course, if your home is larger, you may need more than one house filtration system. I also recommend looking for a whole house water filter that has three separate stages of contaminant removal:
  • Stage one removes sediment
  • Stage two removes chlorine and heavy metals
  • Stage three removes hormones, drug residues, chemicals, pesticides, and herbicides with a heavy-duty carbon filter
In terms of the carbon filter, choose granular carbon, not a solid block of carbon. Granular carbon allows for better water flow, better water pressure and improved filtration overall. Also look for NSF certification, which ensures your water filter is meeting national standards. NSF certification is not granted before a product can prove it removes everything it claims to remove. It's also good to make sure all particles under 0.8 microns are being filtered out of the water. A lower number is actually better, but I recommend 0.8 microns because that covers most bacteria, viruses and VOCs.
If you can’t afford a whole-house filtering system, then at least filter your shower water, since that’s going to be your most significant source of contamination, for the reasons already discussed.

Final Thoughts

Given the information in the EWG’s latest water report, chances are close to 100 percent that your tap water contains carcinogenic pollutants. In addition to the chemical disinfectants themselves, tap water contains disinfection byproducts that, in some cases, are 1,000 times as toxic as the contaminants they are designed to remove. These contaminants have been associated with bladder cancer, birth defects, miscarriage, and a number of other very serious health problems.
Showering or bathing in contaminated tap water poses even more of a risk to your health than drinking it, so it isn’t enough to simply filter the water you drink. Optimally, you may opt to install in a whole home water filtration system. If you test your water, you’ll want to do it more than once, as DBPs can fluctuate throughout the year, depending on factors such as farming cycles.  Link back to Mercola website where there is video on this topic as well.
