VBTA Endorses Light Rail

In a move that took all of Hampton Roads by surprise, on April 1 the Virginia Beach Taxpayers Alliance (VBTA) endorsed light rail for Virginia Beach, as part of a regional light rail network.

VBTA Chairman John Moss explained, "Over the past several months we've been working with anti-taxers throughout the region: the Portsmouth Taxpayers Alliance, Norfolk Tea Party 2, Tricia Stall's Senate campaign, etc. Many NTP2 members are pro-light rail, given the group's ties to Randy Wright. Wanting to do something positive and constructive for a change, we've decided to advocate for light rail."

VBTA Communications Director Robert Dean went on, "Light rail is such common sense that even I eventually figured it out. Workable solutions for our community should come before dogmatic ideology."

Finally, VBTA Transportation Chairman Reid Greenmun added, "It's about time that I cared about something other than rich White folks in Sandbridge. My political agenda should be about the needs of people other than the one I see in the mirror."

The VBTA is sending a letter to the Virginia Beach City Council asking them to proceed with light rail without a referendum.

My original post was going to be about the annual convention of the Committee for Messnerism-Greenmunism. However, I only had one fresh angle, though it might have introduced Messnerism-Greenmunism to a wider audience.

This one hit me in the shower on Monday morning.

I've learned through my contacts at Victoria Blvd that night service in Virginia Beach will begin today. The last 36 will leave Pembroke at 10:10 PM heading to TCC. This comes from the top
