Re: “Interview: Mayor Levar Stoney Addresses Concerns Over Meals Tax Proposal

So Huguenot High was built in 2015. $63million. $50,000 party to celebrate the opening. $100,000 digital sign....ongoing leaking/water problems...the contractor (friend or family of decision makers?) is nowhere to be found in the discussion....kids cant use the gym. They replaced the floor instead of finding the leak/problem...

Really people? Take your head out of the sand these folks are robbing you blind....and they drive fancy cars and live in nice homes.....smart Richmond...give them more money. Hahahaha. Better yet, take it from one of the thriving industries here in town....brilliant!

Re: “Updated: Stoney Appointee Withdraws Name From Consideration After Restaurant Boycott Email

Realist is spot on. I am tired of supporting the school system (have 3 children in it..not for long!).

Go read all the audit reports on the school system (its disgusting what has been found). They ignore the recommendations. They hire friends and families. Leaders waste money and steal. They over-pay friends and family for contracting services. Its a mess. Throwing good money after bad.

How to fix it: as suggested, work on fixing the efficiency. Fix the stealing and corruption in hiring, promoting, procurement, and outsourcing.

How about a real, full audit from an external firm and force them to follow the recommendations? They would never do it. That would take away their their pot....

Sorry parents (the ones that care)...it will never change and your kids will suffer. Its nice to think it will...but it will not.

Worth repeating:

1. Schools continue to suck.
2. Invoke the "lets do this for the children" campaign and work to get taxes raised.
3. New tax revenue vanishes into the school bureaucracy
4. Go back to number 1.

Reality bites.

Re: “Weekly Food Notes: Pinball Machines, Richmond Restaurant Week + More

Are these "rules" common in bars? In my own opinion, this page just turned me off to this place.
