Bob McDonnell For Randy Wright

On April 24 Governor Bob McDonnell is scheduled to be the Special Guest at a fundraiser for Randy Wright's reelection to the Norfolk City Council. It will be from Noon to 1 P.M. at the Bayfront Beach Club in Norfolk. The cost is $150 per person, including heavy hors d'oeuvers.

No, I'm not into promoting political fundraisers. It goes back to the Virginia Beach Taxpayers Alliance (VBTA) trying to make an ideological litmus test out of support for subsidized fixed rail transportation, plus mass transit in general. Republican Governor Bob McDonnell doing a fundraiser for Mr. Light Rail ought to have the breakfast cult spitting up their Kool-Aid. We've had Ken Stolle securing money for the Norfolk Southern Right-Of-Way, not to mention Bob Tata's bill that got the whole Virginia Beach extension process rolling. Now the McDonnell Administration is on board, with Thelma Drake as Director of the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT).

You would think the Deaniacs would get a clue. Nah, they never learn....

Don't forget to look where all the federal transportation money is going - MASS TRANSIT!
