We’re being played, people

In the Washington Post article from yesterday about our suit:

Prior to the board’s Oct. 3 vote, York noted that a copy of Mateer’s complaint was given to Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney James E. Plowman (R) for review several months ago. Plowman in turn referred the matter to the commonwealth’s attorney’s office in Arlington County. …

I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore

I’m sick and tired of being completely stonewalled by the all-Republican board of Loudoun county after issuing FOIA demands for the records Chairman Scott York received in March from Eugene Delgaudio’s former staff aide.

Instead of providing the records as required by law, the Republicans have circled the wagons around one of their own, issued …

Stonewalled

I spent a little while yesterday looking at the actual item that the BOS passed on October 3, which reads,

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

ACTION ITEM

BOARD MEMBER INITIATIVE

AMENDMENT

# 16

SUBJECT: Investigation of possible violation of county policy governing Board of Supervisor …

Scott York demonstrates how look like you are responding, without being responsive

As I said yesterday, a close look at the Copy Teste shows that the “investigation” is disturbingly limited in scope. Accordingly, I sent this note to Scott York and Shawn Williams,

Dear Scott and Shawn;

I noticed that the investigation of Delgaudio is only looking into his treatment of staff aides as regards county policy. …

If you were wondering why Scott York was in such a rush…(or, How to Make an Investigation Part of a Cover-Up.)

On October 2, 2012, I sent this FOIA request to Scott York:

Mr. York,

This is a FOIA request, made under the applicable part of the Code of Virginia, for a copy of the complaint referred to (that is, “the complaint filed against Mr. Delgaudio”) in your public statement of October 2, 2012. The relevant …

On courage and cowardice

Over the weekend I was thinking about anonymity. I’ve written before about my own decision to blog in the open, but Scott York’s tantrum from the dais brought it up for me again a couple of weeks ago and then Loudoun Insider said something that made me sit and ponder.

One of the benefits of …

Aides Aren’t Punching Bags. Democrats Are.

With no Democrats to point fingers at on his “board united,” Scott York is resorting to attacking an out-of-office Democratic former supervisor who had no role whatsoever in the conduct the board is claiming it will now investigate.

Clearly referring to former supervisor Andrea McGimsey, York said,

“I am very concerned about the charges have …

The fix is in

The BOS voted 9-0 to hire an independent investigator to look into Delgaudio’s actions.

9-0.

That means that a) Delgaudio didn’t recuse himself on this and b) he knows that they are going to instruct the investigator not to find anything.

The stench from this Board is overwhelming.

Thank you to Baron Rosedown for calling …

The Board doesn’t want to hear from you, either.

So, yesterday, Scott York changed the agenda for today’s meeting and sent out a statement. Now, naturally I would expect that something like a discussion of the alleged misconduct of one of the members of the Board might reasonably attract some citizens who have some input they’d like to give the Board.

One would think …

Nothing he can do? (updated)

 

Scott York says that there is nothing the board of supervisors can do about (the latest) official misconduct by Eugene Delgaudio.

But that’s not true.

The board has the inherent power to use whatever legal authority it already has (budget allocations, committee assignments, appointment to regional commissions, resolutions of censure, public statements, etc.) to …
