One out of three ain't bad

One of Mayor Rummage's campaign promises slated to come to fruition this summer; Santa Maria will be paved. That was his bright moment in last week's Town Council session.
Despite the Mayor’s failed attempts to approve a resolution that would assist RAP (Related Apartment Preservation) in procuring a $4,200,000.00 bond from the Harrisonburg Redevelopment and Housing Authority last month and Thursday's failed attempt to start the ball rolling towards collecting a 25 cent fee for entrance to Riverboat if they acquire slots, the Mayor's victory in the approval of Resolution #03-09 to match funds for the paving of Santa Maria Avenue gave him a one out of three victory for the meeting.
Larry Roberson, Westmoreland Board of Supervisors member announced, “The State sold all of its bonds for their big improvement and we now have the $100.000 for paving Santa Maria. The county has given $50,000 plus and your coming up to vote for your $50.000.00,”  said Roberson, makes the project viable.
The resolution received a unanimous vote to pass.
For his losses, Mayor Rummage faced opposition from Council on his attempt to set in motion at the state level, a bill that would eventually result in an entrance fee of .25 cents per patron entering any establishment where gaming is held just in case Riverboat eventually is permitted to have slot machines. He took a public brow beating from Council member Steve Kennedy for his letter in the January 7 issue of the Westmoreland News regarding Council's position on the RAP proposal.
Kennedy stood at the public podium saying, “I like to face the people I’m talking to.”
Kennedy continued, “After reading your letter to the editor in this week's Westmoreland News, I was both amazed and disgusted! Amazed that you had the audacity to write such a scathing piece, and disgusted by the false impression it left. To imply that this Council did anything less than honorable without consideration to the citizens of this town, was both erroneous and without merit.
"This council works hard to serve the citizens of this town. And for you to imply otherwise leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I hope the citizens of this town know that we make hard decisions… that are sometimes not popular but are always thought out and with the town’s best interest at heart. For you to attempt to chastise this Council in a public forum because they did not agree with you… this person [referring to the Mayor] was both unprofessional and a discredit to the members of this Council. Thank you Sir!”
To which Rummage replied, “I didn’t insinuate anything. I stated facts. Thank you.”
Paving on Santa Maria Avenue is slated to be finished this summer. This is one of Mayor Rummage's campaign promises.
