A city council con game? Yep! How will it work? The way lying politicians want it to! REMEMBER: If their lips are moving they are lying.

First, the council will approve and obligate the city to several projects that citizens don't want, but will jammed through without regard to what taxpayers want.

Numerous lies will be told about how they will be financed with 'easily available' funding.

They will say there won't be any need for a tax increase - U-N-T-I-L the projects are well underway. SUDDENLY there'll be a budget shortfall. Money will run out. Virginia Beach will be in trouble.

And then will the council say the only solution is to raise taxes? You bet! Read Municipal blogger Bob O'Connor's piece: "Where will council get all the money?"
