Blue Louisa: A blog Covering Central Virginia & national politics from a progressive perspective
This is a rebuttal to the letter from Ty Fabling in last week’s edition of the Central Virginian. Toni Williams’ voting record is available for public viewing in the minutes to the Board of Supervisors meetings. My Facebook post on BernieHill4Supervisor regarding Toni Williams voting record is entirely accurate and can be corroborated by those Board of Supervisor minutes. I have made verification easier for the reader by embedding those dates, within my Facebook post, for all of Toni’s votes against broadband.
Mr. Fabling’s misunderstanding of the role of the Louisa County Broadband Authority is apparent throughout his article. The Broadband Authority is composed of volunteer citizens that have been appointed to advise the Board of Supervisors on matters related to broadband within the County.
Contrary to Mr. Fabling’s claims, the Broadband Authority does not have the legal rights to enter into contracts or spend money. County leaders - NOT the Broadband Authority - administered the contract to build the broadband towers.
After the Board of Supervisors approved the tower-construction contract, the tower project became part of the Louisa County Capital Improvement Program administered by County officials.
Therefore, Mr. Fabling’s attacks on the Broadband Authority were misdirected.
Editor’s note: This letter was originally submitted to the Central Virginian for their August 8th edition, as a rebuttal to a letter the previous week from one of Toni Williams supporters and was denied because it’s not the CV’s policy to publish letters from active political candidates.
