Teresa Altemus should not be elected to the at-large Gloucester Board of Supervisors’ position. It would be a slap in the face to Gloucester County if she were to be elected.
We must not reward someone who did so much damage to the county and to many citizens during 2007-2008 and beyond while she was chairwoman of the board of supervisors. What she did was so egregious it made headlines across Virginia and beyond. She was indicted with three BOS cohorts for unlawful behavior. When the legal proceedings came to an end, she and her cohorts forced the county to pay their legal fees, well over $300,000.
I need not go into more detail about this unfortunate time, as this period is well documented, which you may find on the internet; read these. Mr. Ingles’ letter to the editor is very clear. Gloucester County citizens have a chance to make a strong statement against illicit behavior.
Take pride in our public officials. Vote for Kevin Smith.
