Re: “A Brookland Park Bank Renovation Seeks a Grant Extension, but Some Neighbors are Wary

Who is performing the checks and balances of the free monies already issued? Were they made in increments? Was the work inspected before another incremental check was issued? What was the plan for the use of the building when applying for grant money? Were multiple work estimates submitted with the original application.
Owner has stated repeatedly that the 1st floor is for commercial and top floor apartment. Shame that the Guitar Shop did not win the bid. Now, ...that was a known company, solid reputation, employees were 7-12, ... and I have little doubt they would have been up and running by now. Instead we are being served up more excuses, more plan changes and still looking for more free monies. For crying out loud he hasn't even bothered to take the boards of the windows or in any way clean the exterior. Something is just not adding up!.....that's my two cents. It's a shame or sham...same, same to me.

Re: “Stoney’s Chief Approved Controversial Severances For Departing Richmond Officials

She needs to be fired. Period. The city has dipped into money that has yet to be collected (assumably when we pay our property taxes in June). If Jones did not have the money in his budget he should not have been 'allowed' to dip into FUTURE monies under a new administration. Fire her and go after Jones for another one of his misappropriations of tax payers money.

Have to seriously wonder if this advanced money was being held aside for this payout versus hiring more Police Officers, DPU staff or improving our public schools.

Said it once and I'll say it again... Jones is a jackass...

Who is running this city!!????!!??
