Quite Insightful

There were two big votes at Tuesday night's meeting of the Virginia Beach City Council.

First, a proposed parking swap with Bruce Thompson was authorized on a 6-5 vote. There were only two speakers in opposition: Virginia Beach Taxpayers Alliance (VBTA) Chairman John Moss and VBTA Vice Chairman Reid Greenmun.

Second, a ban of LED signs was approved on a 6-5 vote. Spearheading the ban were Virginia Beach's garden clubs.

That led one Councilman to quip afterwards, "The garden clubs have more clout than the VBTA."

Believe me I am not now nor have I ever been s supporter of the VBTA, but I'd bet it would be hard for ANY group to trump the support the Mayor gives his wife's garden club.....LOL

I'm sure Willie knows who wears the pants in his house.
