Monroe Park Advisory Council- Sittin’ Pretty, Pretty Classist…

3 Jan
The Monroe Park Advisory Council is the organization which created the plan for the renovations of Monroe Park. They are also very unrepresentative of the people who use the park. They also fail to represent the diversity of Richmond- or come at all close. I have found one concrete way to show how different the lives of many of the MPAC members are from other people in the City. Doing some background research I discovered the following which goes at least a little ways towards pointing towards the obvious class prejudice present in the Monroe Park Advisory Council. I did property searches on the City of Richmond website to see who owned property and how much it was worth. There is of course the possibility that I have the totally wrong individuals, although I have done my best to research honestly. The people I was not sure about are listed at the bottom. 

For full disclosure and to save the haters some time, here is the same information on myself:

The Wingnut has a total real estate value of 127,000. Worth a lot more to me though! (And owning ANY property at all, regardless of its value still denotes a good amount of privilege)

Owner: KARN MORIAH MARGARET

Mailing Address: 2005 BARTON AVE, RICHMOND, VA 23222

The Esteemed Councilman coming in at a relatively modest 264,000 value on his property:
Owner: SAMUELS CHARLES R & KRISTA M

Mailing Address: 203 N MULBERRY ST, RICHMOND, VA 23220

And now for the MPAC members:

Next Time Alice Massie tries to pull the poor teacher card….her house is assessed at over 1.1 million dollars. Those Monument Avenue addresses sure are pricey- but you’d have to pay me to live that close to statues of dead confederate assholes:

Owner: MASSIE WILLIAM MCKINNON JR AND ALICE MCGUIRE MASSIE

Mailing Address: 1643 MONUMENT AVE, RICHMOND, VA 2322000000

Cop Corruption in Dancehall Ordinance

21 Dec

For a good laugh I recommend you check out the new Dance Hall Ordinance pushed through Richmond City Council by none other than Charles I’m A Total Fuckwad Samuels.

There are a lot of details to this particular ordinance that strike even the least legal of people as unconstitutional.

Not to mention the way that the ordinance REQUIRES the hiring of police. Geez, wonder who lobbied to get that part in the ordinance- couldn’t have been the Richmond Police Department? COuldn’t have been members of the Public Safety committee who helped push this law through…

Fuck any law that increases funding for police.
