    Due to public outrage, the Budget Conferees had the good sense to slice this pork from the budget. With $6,000,000 is assets, and running several businesses, this is one land conservation group that should think about tightening their own belt instead of looking for more public money. Dick Black really showed he is actually quite green.

    Thank you for sharing Leo Schwartz’s letter to Senator Black. Very well written.

    I learned of the David Crockett story when taking a class on the Constitution. If you have not, PLEASE go back to the letter and click on it. It should be sent to all of our leaders.

    Thanks and keep up the good work.

    These guys seem to be working to circumvent the law. Here is an email message regarding the topic:

    Hello All,

    Delegate Minchew and Senator Black will be offering a $200,000 budget adjustment item tomorrow to secure funding for the Waterford Foundation to cover the cost of lost revenue resulting from the cancellation of the
    fair in October 2015.  Apparently, there is a restriction in the general assembly on granting funding to nonprofits so Del. Minchew and Senator Black would like to direct this funding to Loudoun County with the intent of disbursement to the Waterford Foundation. Can you advise us as to the most appropriate county mechanism in which to accomplish this revenue transfer?  

    Thank you!   ­

    And they don’t understand why Trump is so popular?

    Senator Black and Delegate Minchew, at one time, presented themselves as pro-property rights guys. We later find out that Randy Minchew’s law partner entered an agreement to represent the PEC folks. It looks like the money trail might be there undoing. Dick Black really needs to withdraw his appropriation of our money (pork for buddies) and both men need to come clean as to where how they LIE.

    Why in the world would Dick Black be supporting the PEC-types? Please stop spending our tax dollars on your wealthy friends.
