Re: “City Council Meeting Degenerates Into Weird, Chaotic Mess

Mr. Dorsey follows the rules and is forced to leave. Another person violates the rules and Mr. Samuels leaves.

Re: “Five for Fighting

Three questions:

An open government is essential to a democratic government. The public must have access to government information and access to the decision-making process. A study undertaken by City Hall Review evaluated the City of Richmond on 105 criteria. The study found that the City failed to meet 101 of the criteria. The Richmond Open Government Project is sponsoring a petition to “Make Richmond City Hall an open government equal to the best in Virginia.” Four candidates for City Council have signed the petition (Agelasto, Delp, Diradour, and Shewmake). Will you sign the petition and pledge to “Make Richmond City Hall an open government equal to the best in Virginia?”

The Sierra Club has a petition with about 1300 signatures asking that the City of Richmond lower the minimum monthly water/sewer service charge to no more than $15 per month. The current minimum monthly service charge for water and sewer service is $49.40 per month, which is the highest in the country. This outrageous service charge is unfair to low-income residents and to those who conserve water. As a candidate for City Council, will you endorse lowering the city’s minimum service charge to $15 per month, which is line with other localities?

In his 2011 State of the City Address, Mayor Dwight C. Jones said that “While we will take advantage of good opportunities which present themselves, we are going to grow this City by design and not by default.” The City’s fundamental land planning document is the Master Plan which is implemented through the zoning ordinance. During the current 2009-2012 term, City Council has approved over 70 special use applications which waive zoning rules for applicants on a piece-meal basis. Do you think that is good planning; is that “growing this city by design?”

Re: “About Face

I asked Style Weekly about the "screaming pro-choice advocates lunging toward lawmakers." It happened on another occasion during the week and was witnessed by their reporter.

Re: “After Mayoral Reprimand, Tyler Hits Back

I have listened to the audio recordings of the January and February meetings of the council's Health, Human Services and Education Standing Committee at which this matter was considered. At the January meeting, Mr. Tyler stated to Ms. Moseley "I want to say unequivocally, I believe you stood up here and lied." At the February meeting Ms. Moseley and her staff presented additional information. I have not heard anything from either meeting that suggests Ms. Moseley misrepresented the facts. Mr. Tyler needs to specify the fact that he thought was false.
