It is very tempting to call for a vote of NO Confidence directed at the BOCS from the taxpayers for allowing last week’s debacle to continue regarding the amendments attached to Pete Candland’s resolution. However, No Confidence votes seem a bit melodramatic and are pretty meaningless.
I would hope that those amendments were repealed or rescinded today before the minutes are approved. Let’s see if the Board of County Supervisors has the integrity to do so or if they are just going to allow Jenkins and Stewart to jerk them around.
What a bogus bunch of crap Angela Horan handed down. Surely you all don’t believe those “amendments” were germane?
Governor Bob O’Donnell is giving himself another black eye. This time it is for dodging the issue at UVA. Not only has McDonnell dodged the issue, it is he who appointed the leader of the ouster, Rector Helen Dragas, from a mere post on the Board of Visitors to the University Rector (chairman of the BoV).
Dragas has bungled her attempt to overthrow popular President Teresa Sullivan. 42 Department chairs have taken a stand against her behavior. The Faculty Senate has condemned her and the Board of Visitors in support of Sullivan. Student and faculty protests and demonstrations have been ongoing since the announcement of Sullivan’s ouster.
