Anyone Still Have A Copy?

Over on Virginia News Source, the 2008 City Council Campaign Manifesto for Virginia Beach Taxpayers Alliance (VBTA) candidates, written by Ben Krause, has become a topic of discussion again. While Ben is feigning support for better bus service as an alternative to light rail, a couple commenters have pointed out that Ben had called for an elimination of Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) service in Virginia Beach.

I never saw it myself. One person who read it no longer had a copy to forward me. Therefore, if anyone still has a copy, forward it to and I'll publish it on this blog.

While no VBTA candidate ever officially embraced the Manifesto, no candidate ever repudiated it, either.

u might have answered this b4 Henry but was there actually a time when people listened to these goons?

it's bad enough the reason Light Rail is so late getting to this region is because of them but they wanted to shoot for getting rid of service from HRT all together? give me a break

For lack of an alternative, they were the official opposition for years here in Virginia Beach.

It's now the minority organizations and the push for Inclusion. However, the old farts can't figure out their inning is up.
