Re: “In Richmond's Blue Mayoral Race, Only Five Candidates Are Running as Democrats

Charlie Diradour is a well-liked member of the Richmond City Democratic Committee and has been for many years. The reason he isn't mentioned in the list above is that he is running for City Council, not Mayor, and this article is about the mayoral race.

Re: “Preview: Wegmans in Midlothian

Here's the thing that Richmonders are about to discover about Wegmans: Richmonders are used to a segmented grocery sector, with gourmet stores (Whole Foods, Ellwood Thompsons), premium stores (Kroger, Martins), and bargain stores (Food Lion). A Wegmans is like all three of these kinds of stores under one huge roof. You can get everything from the most luxury of luxury good to the most generic of generic items, and everything in between, all in one place, with wonderful customer service. I think they will be a big hit with Richmond-area shoppers.

Well then Packfan, move to the counties. I'd suggest Hanover.

Re: “Opinion: How Redskins Football Pushed Richmond's Schools to the Breaking Point

Also Packfan, I will say that I have already alluded to the problem and how to solve it. Richmond has about 20,000 students and about 30,000 school seats. We have way too many spaces and most of them are in crumbling buildings that we pay to patch up over and over and over and over . . . ad infinitum.

We spend so much money because year after year we waste that money half-assing renovations on buildings that should have been abandoned.

We need to "right-size" our school system by closing some schools and build a only a few new ones. If you read the school board's current plan, they would like to build two new middle schools and close the four existing ones. Fewer schools also means fewer duplicated administrative positions: two principals instead of four, see?
