Stealing the idea straight from my friend, Waldo, here are a few links that caught my eye today:
- Documents reveal efforts to control Goochland’s ex-treasurer. “As a constitutionally elected county officer, Grubbs answered to voters, not auditors, and was virtually untouchable — barring criminal conduct.” And the General Assembly, so far, refuses to correct this.
- HRT was ill-prepared to take on light rail, new chief says. Ya think? My tipoff: the cost overruns.
- First eagle egg hatches at Norfolk Botanical Garden. Despite the fact this is just outside my back door, I rarely get a chance to see the babies. Something to do with tax season 😦
- Va. House delegation protects itself. Color me surprised – NOT! The fight for fair redistricting – with the elimination of incumbent protection – has been lost for this cycle. But the fight for the next redistricting – in 2021 – should begin now. We might just be successful.
