Home Letters To The Editor Switch council from rich man's race to equalized ward system

The mayor shared his war chest with candidates he endorsed.  The money used for an expensive advertising blitz.  Thje mayor helped because they lacked plans for a new convention center hotel, an entertainment venue at the Ocean Front, and believe in the light rail.

Summing up the Godfather-lie role, the Virginian-Pilot labeled Mayor Sessoms, “A king maker because he can pump money into a race and open doors to big donors.”

This November back candidates who pledge to scrap at-large voting.
