The group’s express purpose, as formerly stated on their (now attenuated) web […]

Pwned: Signer duped in City Council speaker signup lottery

Under the feeble tutelage of Mayor Michael Signer, Charlottesville City Council’s “matters by the public” has become a spectator sport. A weekly promenade of freaks, geeks, and racially hypersensitive dilettantes consumes the first portion of each Council meeting with foul language, obscene gestures, lugubrious life stories, and harsh direct criticism of their mayoral host. Lately, […]

Torched: Mayor Mike Signer’s institutional lawlessness bites back

Not long ago, Charlottesville was a city apparently under the rule of law. That perception changed in 2011 when the city’s under-qualified and overpaid City Manager, Maurice Jones, ordered his police department to stand down as socialist Occupiers overran Lee Park. Most recently, Mr. Jones’ precedent of institutional lawlessness was extended by Mayor Michael Signer, who contrary […]

Bad Bobs: Charlottesville assessor slams renegade City Councilor and conservative businessman

Like Albemarle County before it, Charlottesville has a real estate assessment problem. Past reports of rate-rigging and internal collusion have undermined the public’s confidence in the City assessor’s office and have called to question the veracity of their annual output.
