One thing that really hasn’t been made clear is why a local Commissioner of Revenue needed to lobby the state legislature.
There have been vague mumblings and hints of “additional funding for the office,” but I’ve seen no clear statement of “We needed this,” unless “this” was to get out of Norfolk, which doesn’t seem very plausible to me.
Richmond is a nice town; so is Norfolk. Neither is hardly Wildwood as a resort spot.
Inquiring minds are perplexed.
Addendum, the Next Day:
Today’s local rag reports that the Mayor of Norfolk has a theory: Because it was there.
