I am going to keep the E-FORUM going for a while at least, but this is my last one as mayor.

I just finished my last City Council meeting, a special meeting to certify the election results in District 2, which passed on a 5-1 vote with Bates Absent and me voting NO. I voted no because the canvass adopted with the motion was in violation of both state law and the Richmond Municipal Code because it did not list all votes by precinct.

The County Elections Division provided a corrected count to me about an hour ago, but in his haste to get this done, the incompetent and corrupt city attorney did not substitute it for the one included in the on-line agenda packet, so the City Council adopted an illegal canvass.

While the new Council gets sworn in tonight, I’m going out to have a nice dinner with Shirley.
