Our previous poll question was on the chances of Rita Sweet Bellitto, just appointed to a vacancy on the Virginia Beach City Council, of winning a full term this November. 71% think she has a good chance, 10% Fair, 12% Poor, and 6% think She's Toast.
I'll be honest with you: I've never voted for Rita before. In her three previous runs for office, City Council in 2002 and School Board in 2004 & 2008, I have yet to cast a ballot for her. Also, just being named to City Council will require her to stand up a campaign team and raise money on a compact schedule. Possible, but problematic.
The new question is on today's rollout of a figure for Norfolk's light rail Starter Line: how much credibility do you give it?
