The deadline to register to vote in the June 13th primary is TODAY, May 22. But “registration” doesn’t just include those voting for the first time.

In just under a month, Virginia voters will head to the polls to select party nominees for various offices. As has been the case in recent years, when you go to the polls, you’ll have to choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot. You can’t vote in both primaries. I mentioned the names of the … Continue reading June 13th primary candidates (image)

Fri, 12 May 2017 17:33:52 +0000

That’s what the last few months have felt like. It has been overwhelming. The sh!tshow that is the state of our national politics accounts for much of it. It is impossible to ignore the daily hourly minute-by-minute avalanche of stuff coming out of Washington. Yes, Donald Trump has been a disaster, but so has the … Continue reading Like drinking from a firehose (image)

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 ALERT: SB 1487 action needed today (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 On being an elector in 2016 (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 The times, they are a-changin’ (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 The state of the race (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 Catching up (image)

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 Burfoot is toast (image)
