America Is Waking Up….... Now is the time for "We The People" to take action.

Freedom; a word that is the foundation of a republic founded by our forefathers over 230 years ago and while the United States is not the only country in the world with freedom we as Americans celebrate and cherish this privilege every day and sorrowfully a lot of people overlook the freedom that we have. Along with freedom also comes the word respect because our republic’s constitution was written on compromise and respect.
Over the years we had our battles within our country regarding tyranny, slavery, racial and civil rights and these disagreements were bloody and long, but we worked through the issues only after thousands of people died fighting for what they thought was right. Whether the tyranny of King George or the tyranny of the northern armies during the War Between the States, people died fighting for a cause, unity and respect and while minorities such as the Irish, the Asians or the Africans were not treated fairly for many years they have taken steps forward in equality.
In the past 10 – 15 years a new battle has reappeared to the front stage of our country and the world. We are fighting another war not with guns and close combat (yet) but in the political arena of county, state and federal governments. Republicans and Democrats are at odds at all levels of government spending the people’s money and making decisions that are not in the best interest of the people, the same people that these politicians are supposed to be working for and representing. People are protesting in the chambers of congress and the senate and in some cases these protests are violent and the appalling matter that disturbs me is the amount of lies being fabricated to justify the agenda of their political party. Totally sickening that we as a respected people on the world stage that our elected officials have stooped to such low levels, demonstrating how corrupt we as a nation have become and we as the people are allowing this to happen.
Today we argue about our President and while the Democrats deny his election they must recognize that he is our President. Our elected officials are charged with making decisions for the good of the people and not for the good of the vote or their political career. While due diligence must be exercised when confirming appointed positions, the people demand that the Constitution drafted and adopted by our forefathers, be followed and not used as a guideline. We the people deserve better and we the people demand that people start acting responsibly and while just saying this is not going to make it happen we the people must demand equal and fair treatment under the law and we need to make a statement to the governing body that treason, perjury and intentional defamation will not be tolerated and needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law, setting an example that these activities will no longer be tolerated by the people.
In November mid-term election are going to take place and a swing of power could take place and while I am not suggesting or endorsing any one particular party or position, but I encourage everyone reading this to research the candidates and their platforms. America is waking up to all the corruption and scandals in Washington, Richmond and Gloucester. We the People need to stand together and forget white, black and racial differences because if they divide us as a people they have conquered us as a people, we will lose our rights, freedom and respect, not only on the world stage but with each other. It is time for America to wake up the sleeping beast that we are and strengthen our country, state and county. It is time for America to wake up, are you ready?

If you can not read the above flyer, you can click on it and blow it up.

Teresa Altemus is running for the Republican nomination for the Board of Supervisors position for Gloucester Point.  She is running against present sitting Board of Supervisor Chris Hutson for this position.  Only one will get to run for the seat on the Republican ticket after Thursday.  So its critical to get out and vote for whichever candidate you want to see running for that seat and sitting on the Board of Supervisors for the next four years.

  After Thursday, anyone running for the Republican nomination are prevented from running as an independent later on as we understand it.  So that means if you want to see Teresa representing your interests on the BoS, then you need to come out and support her and vote for her on Thursday.  Please bring a photo ID.  Location is Achilles Elementary School in Guinea.  Registration is between 5:30 and 6:45 PM.  If you want to see Chris Hutson continue to represent you then you need to come out and support him.

Chris Hutson

Get out the vote!
If you fail to pick one then you have no complaint when the wrong one gets elected.

Letter To The Daily Press, Chris Hutson's Voting Record and Teresa Altemus

Dear Ms. Hubbard,
Your April 19th article on Teresa Altemus appears to be just one more in a long line of articles written by daily press reporters responsible for the Gloucester County area that are biased to say the least. It appears that you wrote the article with much enthusiasm directed at supporting Gloucester Point Supervisor Chris Hutson in his reelection efforts, the unlawful and very costly actions of the Gloucester 40 and Gloucester’s former Commonwealths Attorney, while casting a negative cloud about Mrs. Altemus; even though she and the other targeted Supervisors were all found not guilty of all charges. In fact it was not Mrs. Altemus and the other targeted Supervisors who costGloucester County hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees. It was a group of people, who were all associated with the same local civic organization (Rotary Club) that cost Gloucester Countyall of that money. Did anyone at the Daily Press ever look into why such effort was put into attempting to have Mrs. Altemus and the other targeted Supervisors removed from office? I think not. What were the Rotary folks trying to keep hidden from the People and who was directing them? Those are questions that still should be asked. It is also noteworthy that each of the individuals quoted in your article, except for John Walsh (the local Republican Committee Chair) has been discredited or rejected byGloucester voters. Perhaps it is that group which is continually looking in the rear view mirror rather than forward through the windshield.
There was absolutely nothing in your article about Mrs. Altemus’ views on anything that matters to the majority of the voters inGloucester County. There were no quotes from anyone supporting Mrs. Altemus, but there were numerous quotes from the other direction. In fact your article, in its own subtle way, tends to steer the reader away from Mrs. Altemus in favor of Mr. Hutson. What or who is the driving force behind Mr. Hutson having that privilege? It certainly cannot be a result of his track record as Supervisor for the Gloucester Point, Virginia district.
I personally contacted you via email on June 3, 2014 about Mr. Hutson’s conflict of interest in the Terrapin Cove Sewer project, but nothing was ever reported by the Daily Press. During the May 20, 2014 Board of Supervisors meeting, Mr. Hutson voted to approve the Terrapin Cove Sewer Extension project.  Part of the project entailed installing public sewer along Laurel Drive at Gloucester Point at a total project cost of $773,638.  The vote was 4 in favor of the project and 3 against it. 
The following information was obtained from the GloucesterCounty online property database and is for property on Laureldrive that is owned by Mr. Hutson’s father and mother in-laws. 
Owner Address:
PO BOX 122
RPC #: 32740
Physical Location:
Magisterial District: Gloucester Point
Tax Map #: 051C 5 C 5
Mr. Hutson should have abstained from voting on the Terrapin Cove sewer project in accordance with Commonwealth ofVirginia Conflict of Interest laws.  Without publicly disclosing his interest in the project area property, Chris Hutson not only voted for the project, he also acted as the primary public body advocate during the design, review and procurement processes. Shortly after the BOS meeting this information was brought to the attention of all of the Supervisors via an email message. After the email notification was sent it was further realized that Mr. Hutson’s father in-law has served on the Gloucester Public Utilities Advisory Committee since 2004 and was reappointed for another four year term by Mr. Hutson in 2012. 
During the June 3, 2014 BOS meeting the Terrapin Cove project was brought back to the floor for further discussion by Supervisor Ashley Chrisco, on the premise that funding was uncertain due to the Commonwealth not yet approving its budget. That in itself was a cover up. The Terrapin Cove project was not a Commonwealth funded project and the County’s ability to fund it was uncertain from the projects conception. Mr. Hutson knew this all along. The BOS voted to delay the project start up and to pull funding from it until the Commonwealth approved its budget. Then, upon the recommendation of At Large Supervisor John Meyer, the Board directed that a certified letter be sent to each property owner within the project area asking the owners for a binding commitment to hook up to the sewer system if the project moves forward. This and other steps should have been accomplished before any other money was spent to design the sewer expansion. Due to the project area resident’s lack of hookup commitment, the Board ultimately voted to terminate the project with Mr. Hutson finally abstaining from the vote.  
At issue here is not only Mr. Hutson’s excessive spending practices, but also and most importantly, the conflict of interest votes he made. Mr. Hutson went so far when caught in the deception that he blamed his wife. His comment during the July 1, 2014 board meeting was, “I’m married, my wife doesn’t tell me anything.” What is even more curious about Mr. Hutson’s claim is he used the same excuse convicted former Governor McDonald was using at the time. One cannot help but wonder what else Mr. Hutson is hiding from the People with the assistance of the Daily Press.
In your article Mr. Hutson speaks about transparency. During a public hearing on October 7, 2014, Mr. Hutson essentially stated that the only way the Board of Supervisors knows what the People and Citizens want is through comments made at Board of Supervisor meetings during citizen comment periods. What about emails to the Board or to ones district representative, or phone calls, letters and face to face communications? I can honestly say Mr. Hutson has never responded to a single email I have sent to him and I live at Gloucester Point off of Terrapin Cove Road.
In your article Mr. Hutson touts how well the current Board is doing for the People of Gloucester, yet he has voted in opposition of the other board members on numerous occasions. The most recent occasion was his vote against the recently adopted 2016 County budget. Yet your article said nothing about Mr. Hutson’s voting record or his desire to raise Gloucester’s real estate tax rate from $.65 to $.72.
My question to you is; why did you write and why did the Daily Press publish such a biased article?

Gloucester, VA Candidates For Board of Supervisor's Positions, 2013/14

Come and meet the candidates for the upcoming seats on the Gloucester County Board of Supervisors positions.  3 seats are open this season for 2014.  Those seats are York District, Petsworth District and At Large position.  The At Large supervisor's position is one where that particular supervisor represents all residents of the county and not just one specific district within the county.

  We are going to introduce each candidate from left to right.

1. Phil Bazzani, York District candidate
2. Graham Blake, York District
3. Mike Jenkins, Petsworth District
4. Grant Keller, At Large Position, Covers Entire County
5. John Meyer, At Large Position, Covers Entire County
6. Marsha Mickle, York District
7. Mr Winebarger, Petsworth District

As soon as we get a chance, we will be putting up audio from the forum so that everyone can hear the candidates positions.  We will try and get that up before the end of the week.  The central themes of the forum were very clear, taxes are going up and are out of control, a lack of new business into the area to help grow the tax base and take some of the burden off the residents, a present Board of Supervisors who are out of control and do not listen to the people they are supposed to serve.

Now it is up to you, the voter, to decide whom you think are the best candidates to represent you in both the county as well as your district.  To help that process, we have made our selection based on sound ideas, passion for wanting to do the best job they can, the right ideas and ideals and the best answers.  What we can tell you is that the decisions were very tough on building our A list and we debated our decisions for several hours based on the facts before us.

Our A list selection is as follows;

For Petsworth:  Mr Winebarger had the most passion for the position with very sound answers to tough questions.

For York District;  Marsha Mickle.  Our toughest decision.  Phil Bazzani was an extremely tough person to beat, but we felt Marsha Mickle had a little more personal passion for the position and the time to do an incredible job for her constituents.

For At Large;  Grant Keller.  Again this was an extremely tough call to make.  John Meyer was at the top of our list even coming out of the forum.  We spent over 4 hours with Grant Keller after the forum and he convinced us that he is in fact the right person for the job.  He presented us with his ideas and concerns and we felt we had to throw our support to him after an incredible job and well thought out objectives and visions that he clearly conveyed.

Now that makes our B list rather clear with one exception.  The York district has 3 people seeking to represent the constituents.  So our B choice has to go to Phil Bazzani.  Graham Blake moves to the C list.  What was sad are the jokes overheard about Mr Blake based on his age that he might not live through the 4 year term and there was speculation that he may even need naps during the 3 hour meetings.  Though he is up there in age, we thought the jokes were reckless.  He does have considerable experience he brings to the table that still needs to be taken into consideration.

On a final note for this post, we would like to thank Katie Thompson and her staff for producing this forum and a job very well done.

Gloucester, VA School Board Candidates Open Public Forum

Candidates for 2014 include from left to right, Andersen, Hook, Parker and Records.  Each are running for positions on the Gloucester county school board unopposed.  One thing we liked that Mr Andersen said was that even though he is running unopposed, a vote for him is still a vote of confidence in his abilities and he would greatly appreciate that.

  Ms Hook is a local attorney in the Gloucester area who showed she is very well versed in many areas of the school board's issues and able to articulate matters quite well.

  Ms Parker has been a concerned domestic engineer overseeing her families business with a passion to see that present and future education of the area's children are well represented.

  Mr Records is an engineer with a great deal of concern over local education and is seeking to fill a position on the school board.  We would like to see Mr Record get that opportunity.
