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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll publish it on this blog.
While no VBTA candidate ever officially embraced the Manifesto, no candidate ever repudiated it, either.
