ALERT: SB 1487 action needed todaytake-action-buttonvjptake-action-button

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 15:47:31 +0000

If you’ve been following the saga of Norfolk Treasurer Anthony Burfoot, then you know that some serious change needs to be made to the laws in Virginia which allow him to stay in office while appealing his felony convictions. A house bill addressing the situation – automatic suspension from office upon conviction – was discussed … Continue reading (image)

On being an elector in 2016electors2016vjpelectors2016

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 17:08:27 +0000

This has been an interesting year to be a member of the Electoral College. As with everything that I do, I spent a significant amount of time researching our role. Of course, had Hillary Clinton won the election, all that research would have gone to waste 🙂 I’ve written a couple of op-eds (1, 2) … Continue reading (image)

To say I was floored by the election results last week would be an understatement. Only in the last 24 hours have I truly been able to articulate why I am so devastated by Hillary Clinton’s loss. My first reactions were simply to how this affected me personally. But as I have gotten out of … Continue reading (image)

It’s been really difficult to watch this election cycle. In all honesty, November 8 can’t get here soon enough. And that’s saying something, given how much of a political junkie I’ve been. Because I’m literally swamped all the time, I get most of my news through Twitter. Which, it seems, is where most of the … Continue reading (image)

It’s been a while since I posted anything about my columns in The Virginian-Pilot – mainly because it’s been a while since I wrote anything! I see the last post I did was in May 2015! It hasn’t been that long since I wrote anything but life kinda got busy. And then when I tried … Continue reading (image)

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 15:24:58 +0000

The shocking indictment (pdf) and surprise guilty plea of Norfolk developer Ronnie Boone virtually guarantees that Anthony Burfoot, current Norfolk Treasurer and former council member, is going to jail. Burfoot’s trial is scheduled to start on November 7. Wanna bet he pleads out before then? In exchange, of course, for identifying and giving dirt on … Continue reading (image)

September 6 has been a bittersweet day for me for a very long time. My father, about whom I’ve written in the past (like here and here) died on September 6, 1973. I remain grateful for all that Daddy taught me, even though our time on this earth was so short. One year later, on … Continue reading (image)

… to have the VP nominee from Virginia? 🙂 I was peppered with questions about our very own Tim Kaine when I was in Philly for the Democratic National Convention. Having first met him when he was mayor of Richmond (a white guy chosen by the black majority council), I was more than happy to … Continue reading (image)
