I am not shocked, but deeply disappointed that Delegate Bourne is carrying water for Dominion on its fantasy sports arena. Why not ask to keep sales tax and fix the bathrooms and roofs in city schools. Why not spend that money on paving city roads that continue to be in a deplorable state…

VRS needs to divest from all fossil fuels and most importantly divest from Dominion right now. The evisceration of our retirement system by forcing people into defined contribution programs must be reversed. The gentlemen's praise of that move illustrates their misunderstanding of the nee…

Great piece by Michael Paul Williams. I understand Chris Hilbert's desire to have someone from Virginia Union on the Commission, but it makes no sense to insist on the person who signed an op-ed written by the developers.


Northam is completely embedded in the elite political culture that traces its roots directly to the plantation and the enslavement of Africans for the benefit of that elite. No surprise that he would refuse to sign a bill repealing the so called right to work, denying working Virginians t…

The public comment period for the Enviva air permit to expand its operations in Southampton County closes September 27. Now is the time to comment, see https://www.deq.virginia.gov/Programs/Air/EnvivaPelletsSouthampton.aspx for instructions. Ask the DEQ to send the permit to the AIR Board…

"The grandeur of Friday night coliseum sellouts is captivating." This is not the only, but perhaps the best sentence of this absurd editorial. Why would we be thrilled to be an entertainment venue for people who don't live here. Who wants the congestion and air pollution. And most importa…

The call to fix infrastructure using the Farrell boondoggle as a model of creativity must be satire, right? The centerpiece of the Navy Hill project is public financing of a huge arena that will never make money, that will bring traffic and its air pollution into the city to provide an en…

$150,000 a year is vastly more than 95% of state employees earn. It's a disgusting display of cronyism. The practice happens in both democrat and republican administration and illustrates yet again that the "Virginia Way" is the most corrupt old boy network in the country. We ne…

Can it be any more obvious that the Governor of Virginia is really a handmaiden to Dominion. He removes Air Board members who might have denied the air permit because a. the pipeline is not needed and b. the compressor station location in Buckingham is environmental racism. Dominion acts l…
