In our latest poll, I asked who was your first choice in the Virginia Beach City Council At-Large contest field. With a new record of 220 votes cast, Dave Redmond won with 40% of the vote. While Andrew Jackson will be my first vote, as he's the candidate who would push Virginia Beach towards where it needs to be in the future, I'm leaning towards Redmond as my second vote in that he's the best-suited towards managing today's problems.
In 2nd Place was Wally Erb at 31%. Wally pushed trying to get a light rail referendum question on this November's ballot, claiming it was simply to give the public a vote...but admits he'd campaign against it in a referendum campaign. Wally is a Libertarian who decries subsidies...but is pushing a "Tricare/Medicare Initiative" that would have the City's General Fund subsidize his doctor. Does the Erb Campaign logo have two pictures of him, one of each of his faces?
Surprisingly, James Cabiness finished 3rd at 18%. I'll take a serious look at him if Redmond disappoints.
Andrew Jackson and Rita Sweet Bellitto each got 4%, with John Moss at 2%. Bill DeSteph finished last with three votes. Was that Bill, his girlfriend, and his girlfriend's mother?
The new poll question: should the radar at Oceana be moved? Taller buildings in the Resort Area are and would obstruct it.
