3rd Annual CCO Picnic In The Park

On Wednesday evening the Council of Civic Organizations (CCO), Virginia Beach's civic league federation, held it's 3rd annual Picnic In The Park at Mount Trashmore.

While it didn't appear as well-attended as in 2009, the barbecue and cookies were demolished. A new feature: vendors purchased space to sell their wares to the public.

Congressional candidates Scott Rigell and Kenny Golden were there. Representatives came from Glenn Nye's reelection campaign.

With it also being a City Council election year, a number of candidates were there: Andrew Jackson, Dave Redmond, Rita Sweet Bellitto, and Barbara Henley. In addition, Councilman Bob Dyer stopped by.

Note what's missing above: none of the VBTA candidates appeared. They can't bring themselves to admit that the VBTA has little support among an authentic grassroots group?

Delegate Chris Stolle also attended. However, Dr. Stolle was out quickly before I could ask him a medical question.

School Board candidate (and previous CCO President) Sam Reid was going on about fundraising, yard signs, etc. We had to repeatedly remind Sam that he's running unopposed.
