Re: “Library of Virginia Layoffs Will Hinder Open Government, Preservation of Historical Record

How about taking the corporate welfare money and investing it in librarians. These job losses hurt the local economy and they hurt services provided to the public. Trim your own budget governor!

Re: “LETTER: Pipeline Will Provide Wise Alternative

The truth is that the pipeline will carry fracked gas. That is reason enough to oppose its construction. The public health and social costs of fracking are now well documented. Dominion has been and continues to be the greatest impediment to development of renewable energy in Virginia. It owns the governor and the General Assembly and writes rules the way it wants them written. Its influence in Virginia politics is legion and hopefully about to unravel. Getting the gas to the export market is what this is all about. It is not in our interest nor will it benefit our state to be the transport station for dirty fossil fuel. It might benefit shareholders, but given the falling prices for gas and oil, maybe it wouldn't even benefit them.

Re: “Mayor Says His Stadium Proposal Is 'Not Dead'

The Shockoe deal stinks. The street grid cannot hold all of the traffic and the increase in daily traffic as a result of such dense residential development. No more subsidies to developers, period.

Re: “Ballpark Plan Unravels

No public money or bonds should go into a stadium. If private developers cannot be found, let the team go.

Re: “Ripple Effect

The Pear Street Project developer makes no bones about it. David White will be selling the views afforded by the 13 story building. He knows that it violates the letter and spirit of the downtown plan, but what the heck, has City Council ever turned down a developer? We need a new city council, one that is responsive to the needs of the city and makes decisions based on the simple idea that development should improve the quality of life for the people who live here. Selling our riverfront so the .006% of the city population can have spectacular views is just plain dumb. We have Downtown and Riverfront Plans that came out of a participatory process. When developers erect monuments to themselves urban design is not in their view.
