    Ah, the Tax Exempt/Non LOBBYISTS are out, again,
    Propagandizing to extort Taxes for their own Self-Interests.
    Drink Up. It’s So Positively Richmond!
    It’s good to BUY, own, operated, manage and run the Peoples’
    Government, against The People, and strictly for the Rich, Corporates, Developers, Real Estate Businesses, Lawyers and Positively Richmond’s Who’s Who Elite, Democratic, SELVES.
    It is 100% pure PC and “Democratic Government Ethics”.

    A toast: PCMEEEEEE first, last and always!!!
    Yeah, WE bought Jones & Council.
    Elected to Serve The People. They SERVE OUR MONEY and
    will allow US to engorge and enrich ourselves some more.
    Tax Payers PAY, without any say. WE set it Up that Way!

    Come on down and get drunk with the Mayor and City Council. What a bunch of bumbling buffoons! This is inappropriate, and unprofessional.

      What’s your problem? City Council and the Mayor were not there. This was not organized by LoveRVA. It was a private initiative. What’s wrong with a group of people showing their support for a ballpark by supporting local businesses?

      You are awful damn self righteous.

  • Three Strikes

    Let me get this straight- The son of the CEO of Timmons Group- the engineering firm helping promote baseball in the bottom, set to take millions of tax payer dollars in design fees, hand-picked by the Mayor to be the firm behind anything that happens on Boulevard and the Bottom, the firm behind the shame traffic study for baseball in the bottom- has established a fake non-profit foundation, to promote baseball in the bottom, is accepting donations for his fake non-profit so he can buy a million dollar house for himself and his ‘tourism’ business?!?!

  • PCTransparency

    Gee, certainly expected Media to be all over this as their Advertising
    Agency Partners.
    All the greedy Lobbyist-Propagandistics licking their chops, drooling,
    and boozing it up with Their Bought Public Officials.
    Democratic “Pol-“I”-LICKING” on Public Display.
    The Transparent…Three Ring Circus…Proudly Presents….
    Democratic GIFTGATE and “Correct Party Government Ethics”
    in all their Political Art Antics SHOWS & PRODUCTIONS.
    NO Investigations.
    Corruption, Collusion, Extortion, and Debauchery
    are EXCUSED, if Democratic Rich, Corporate, Donors are Profiteering.
    HOW? WHY?
