Re: “A New Ballpark for Richmond

This is a bunch of crap being tossed out there because the poor pathetic Mayor Jones still has nothing positive to claim his own from his two terms as Mayor. So the Flying Squirrels signed a Memorandum of Understanding indicating they would stay where they are until at least the end of next September, big deal! They were not planning to leave anyway.

Re: “Letter: Like the Redskins Deal, the Stone Brewing Decision Lacked Transparency

There are two other reasons for the EDA 1) I do not believe as a non-government agency, they are required to abide by the Virginia Public Procurement Act, and 2) I believe they do not have to abide by the same rules a City Agency must, with regard to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). In other words, the EDA is the perfect place for a filthy little mayor to hide dirty little backroom deals wherein a select group of people can rather easily rip off the taxpayers.

Re: “Kathy Graziano’s Aide Makes Bid to Fill Her Council Seat

Sorry Tim, but the City of Richmond needs leaders without a history of supporting the current mayor, Dwight Clinton Jones.

Re: “At Supreme Court, McDonnell Case Asks: What Is Corruption?

R Moffett - I mostly agree with you, but I think that because these laws are really aimed at politicians, the lawmakers more than likely are hesitant to write laws they can't find a loophole thru when they themselves are caught breaking them. Probably need to have citizen groups write the laws these guys are supposed to follow.

Re: “At Supreme Court, McDonnell Case Asks: What Is Corruption?

Oxford Dictionary defines "corruption" as "1.dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery"......and this describes what McDonnell did perfectly. McDonnell accepted money and gifts full knowing what was expected of him, and that in itself was dishonest, particularly if he knew he was not going to comply with the desires of Jonnie Williams.

Re: “A Break for the Ballpark?

If we are to believe all we have heard lately from the Mayor and City Council, then clearly the City of Richmond has no business being a part of these discussions because they have no money, very little bonding capacity left, and school buildings that are falling down on top of children. I think Dwight C. Jones needs to be spending his time in City Hall explaining where the CAFR Report is? It is 5 months late now.

Re: “City of Richmond Struggling to Catch Up on Overdue Medicaid Applications

The following statement is an alarming crock of crap, and a poor excuse for mismanagement. "Social Services isn’t the only city office hit by reductions this fiscal year. The city shifted $9 million in vacancy funding for city administration to schools, which officials say has hurt services". - Why were these positions vacant? Did they really not know this statement - "Virginia had an 80 percent increase in new Medicaid applications between October 2013 and September 2014, with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act". This increase was NO surprise, it was predicted long in advance, certainly enough in advance where the Agency could have, and should have, filled the vacant and funded positions.

Hint to all City Agencies - If you now have vacant positions and you do not want to lose them in the next budget cuts............FILL THEM! Are City Administrators really this stupid?
