I guess the recession is only
for the "little guys". See: Land grab?
As always, this is just
outrageous.....to think that there are public servants on the
take ...........is a little hard to deal with.......in hard
times......like these guys don't have enough money as it

Good story See: Land grab? . My only questions
concern the lawyer, Donald Clark. Why him?
Who is he, as it relates to
all these folks?
Or, as they say, what's in it
To me he is just another
lawyer in the Yellow Pages ( I just looked him up).

following the debate over Ferrell Parkway for the last nine
months, one thing is for sure.
See: Land grab? This
proposed lease is not about protecting the environment. It is
about protecting financial interests. Not mine or other citizens
of Va. Beach, but rather the financial interests of members of
this City Council and a select well connected few. See:
Chart of Characters
The Council says that they need to transfer the land to the Fish
Wildlife Service to protect it. Whatís wrong with the City
protecting this land? The city staff has managed it in its
pristine state for the last
20 years. Does
the Council now feel that their staff is incompetent and can no
longer be trusted to do the job?
Or is it because they are being forced to unload it to the Fish
Wildlife Service for them buying Lotus Creek.
course of this project, this Council has rebuffed the ruling of
a Circuit Court judge, recommendations from
staff, the Planning
Commission, several independent
consulting firms, fire rescue personnel, and the citizens
that live in the affected area.
Does this council know more
all these groups or is it that they donít care as long as
their financial interests are protected?
citizens in Sandbridge who feel stopping Ferrell Parkway will
help preserve Sandbridge the
way it was.
Wake up and
look around you.
since you lost the fight to block the new sewer system, there
are no more 2-bedroom
weekend homes being built, but rather multi-floor, multifamily
mega vacation homes.
may win the
battle over Ferrell Parkway, but you already lost the war on the
future of Sandbridge.
To the Fish and Wildlife Service. Shame on you. How dare you
come into our community and breed such ill will and
have pitted neighbor against neighbor, and your desire to gain
Ferrell Parkway borders on extortion. You are allowed to buy
land from willing sellers, not force them into selling by
holding a carrot in front of their face. You are a
wildlife refuge not a land planner.
How many more controversies must we endure from this Council
before something is done?
Why should we
continue to support a Council that puts its own financial
interests above the health and well being of its citizens for
generations to come.
This is not
about protecting the environment; this is about protecting their
City to pay $3M for property worth only $607,194
We need new leadership in this City.

look forward to your equal representation on this matter.
