I Was At the Hanover BOCS Meeting Tonight BUT I was Late – I’m Sorry. Few Showed However…

I walked out of the Hanover Board of County Supervisors meeting tonight after about five minutes of a not too exciting presentation by a county department head.  I think what drove me out was the public-private partnership between Dominion and Hanover County to set up an incubator for small business – did not understand all the details but I wonder what free-market principle this supports.  But assuming this was a partnership involving taxpayers’ money I say no.  If Dominion is willing to do the incubator – let them do it.  Not a function of taxpayer money.  What the BOCS needs is a libertarian voice.  But the winner should envy the loser of a board race – they don’t have to listen to dull speeches at meetings!

It is very difficult to get to a 6 pm meeting from downtown Richmond and I recommend they change it or allow citizen’s time at say 7 pm – a needed break from presentations by county officials!

I am sorry not to be there.  I was hoping 25 or 50 folks might have been there to encourage me.  Maybe next month we’ll do better…
