Dear xxxx:

Today's Virginian-Pilot included a helpful editorial on the support cap issue: http://hamptonroads.com/print/519013

Please read and distribute this editorial.

VEA is sponsoring a rally on this issue on August 19th, at the Bell Tower in Capitol Square, at 1 p.m. Some of you may have received messages from others stating that the time of the rally is 1:30. That is not correct. The time is 1 p.m.

Thank you, Robley Jones VEA GR

Morons.

That’s the same day Kaine is announcing the revenue forecasts and that the “shortfall” will be somewhere between $700 million and $1.5 billion.

Good luck with yer rally...

How come governors never announce cost-cutting measures like laying off everyone in the school district with the term “deputy assistant” in their job title?

Color me in as “not there”

I wouldn’t join the VEA if it were free and offered to me on a golden platter

Well, quite seriously because he wouldn’t have that authority at the local level. He could cut the funding to a certain point (beyond 15% he needs General Assembly approval) but he couldn’t control local decisions.

But, he’s said he’d offer his plans to cut the budget by Labor Day. There ~will~ be layoffs.
