First we have an editorial calling out council for acting on The Palace so quickly:
Perhaps Kenny Bullock is qualified to serve as a manager for his restaurant, The Palace on Plume Street.
But the people of Norfolk don’t know that, because the City Council approved his request to serve as manager of the club without a single word of public discussion.
In other words, business as usual in our fine city.
Even bigger was this story on the separation of school superintendent Richard Bentley. As quoted from the termination contract:
“The board agrees that the termination is an ‘involuntary separation not for cause,’ for internal, VRS and contract purposes. For public relations purposes it will simply be characterized as a separation ‘by mutual agreement.’ “
In other words, they lied.
At some point, the citizens of Norfolk are going to wake up and realize that those elected to represent us aren’t dealing fairly with us. I hope it is sooner rather than later.
