Re: “Richmond Teachers, Students and Parents Rally for More Schools Funding

Did you not read my comment that already stated this fact? This has been the case for years, the city has always had a higher cost per student than just about any other area in the state.

Re: “Richmond Teachers, Students and Parents Rally for More Schools Funding

If memory serves me, Richmond City schools still have the highest cost per student in the state, abysmal test, poor performance and graduation rates and schools in some of the poorest conditions in the state. So when the RSB can manage their money, teachers and schools appropriately, then and only then will I support more money to be thrown at the schools when they have proven over the years they cannot maintain the current schools, provide a quality education and provide a substantial graduation rate for the students of the schools.

No way do I want anymore of my tax dollars to be wasted.

Re: “Sen. Kaine Tackles Gun Loophole

Kaine stretching the truth again to meet his agenda. The problem lies in the care of the mentally ill.

You also have the just totally whacked persons who only want t5o kill others and no amount of gun control will stop this unfortunately.

provide enough money to update and modernize the state records which form the database for the NICS. Make sure that those records can be instantly uploaded to the database. Require that any state taking the funds set in place safeguards to ensure those records are uploaded within 48 hours.

Re: “Peddling the Past

Why not?? The Civil war was a bad part of the history of the United States, however it is a part of our collective history and Richmond as the capital of the confederacy during the conflict was and is a major part of that history. Like it or not it is a part of the history of Richmond and the United States, so get over yourself.

The monuments while offensive to some are still a very vibrant part of what makes Richmond, Richmond. It is a painful memory for some and to others it is a big part of the history of our great country and Richmond in Particular.

An opportunity to learn from the past and to remind all to never let it happen again.

Re: “City Deal With Stone Brewing Finalized

Nice to know that yet again the city government has chosen to spend millions of the citizens tax dollars without any input from the taxpayers. I am all for economic development, but at what cost?? Look at the past debacles- 6th Street marketplace and the most recent the Redskins training facility. I am sorry, but the track record on economic development and the misuse of taxpayer dollars are not inspiring.

Re: “Joe Morrissey, in His Own Words

The best interest of the people would be for you to resign, we don't need someone who has consistently been in trouble his whole career to represent the people . We need someone honest and actually working for the better good of the people , for the people.

You have shown over the years that you cannot follow the law, you have a tendency to get into fights, you've shown your arrogance and disrespect for others. Resign now and try to make recompense to those you have harmed.

He needs to resign , he is an embarrassment to his Faith, his party, his profession and his family.
