    Ah. Here we go again. A call to Political arms, again, from outside operatives to help Government govern. The Mayor, CAO, City Council, and this School Board have specific responsibilities to maintain, and keep up Public Property, buildings, parks, facilities, streets, along with all other resources and assets. They have FAILED.
    Now comes the typical party cover ups.
    Richmond Government can’t Govern without Outside Operatives: Party set up councils, commissions, committees, task forces, studies, and
    studies to study studies, etc.
    They are All fully aware that their Party Consortiums, actively running Richmond; their way, already have all the expertise needed, built in,
    set up, and all already on-board, and fully activated.
    The Party Tax Exempt/Non Profit Boards, getting tax advantages and taxes, Exclusively for Party and Party’s Special Interests Lobbyists

    The Educational “experts” believe instead of Academics raised to
    Passing Levels, sports is an answer to be foster and sponsored.
    PC is astounding in their “Ethics” and Cover Ups for failure of
    government to govern.

      BEcky Brown, you are a complete idiot. You may have something worthwhile to say but your writing style and use of caps and poor grammar make it difficult to understand you, much less take you seriously.

        Liz,,, your priorities make you appear as an adolescent drama queen. Maybe your neurotic genetics have affected the ability to comprehend what is written.
