You may recall a recent gubernatorial election in the state of Virginia where a virtual unknown Republican by the name of Glenn Youngkin prevailed. Basically, the pundits hailed his win as a victory for parental rights in education. 45 years ago, the same concern was expressed by Governor Reagan in a radio address to the […]

As of the typing of these words, there are 22 days until the solstice when our portion of the world will slowly begin illuminating a little more each day. This is the 333rd day of this year. What significance might there be in the number 4,444? Stick around for enough editions of Charlottesville Community Engagement, and that figure may one day show up. I’m your host Sean Tubbs, tracking the trivial and monitoring the memorable. On today’s show:Charlottesville’s Planning Commission gets a look at the preliminary capital budget for fiscal year 23University Transit Service buses return to full capacity More news about the transition team of Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin Let’s begin today with two Patreon-fueled shout-outs. The first comes a long-time supporter who wants you to know:"Today is a great day to spread good cheer: reach out to an old friend, compliment a stranger, or pause for a moment of gratitude to savor a delight."The second comes from a more recent supporter who wants you to go out and read a local news story written by a local journalist. Whether it be the Daily Progress, Charlottesville Tomorrow, C-Ville Weekly, NBC29, CBS19, WINA, or some other place I’ve not mentioned - the community depends on a network of people writing about the community. Go learn about this place today!As the week begins, the Virginia Department of Health reports a seven-day average of 1,377 new cases and the seven-day percent positivity is at 6.1 percent. On Friday, the VDH reported the first fatality of a child from Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome. In the Blue Ridge Health District, there are another 55 new cases today and a seven-day percent positivity of 5.8 percent. There have been two more fatalities reported since Wednesday. Last week, the Jefferson Madison Regional Library entered into a partnership with the Virginia Department of Health to distribute at-home COVID-19 testing kits. The pilot program offers rapid antigen tests that are guided by a virtual assistant. “The test kits must be used away from the library, via an internet-connected device with a camera (including smart phones) with digital test results available within 15 minutes,” reads a press release. “Library staff cannot assist with administering tests, and tests cannot be taken inside any JMRL location.”Today marks the first day in a year and a half that passengers on University Transit Service buses will board from the front door. UTS has ended rules that required riders to board from the middle door. Capacity restrictions have also been dropped, meaning buses will be able to fill to standing. However, masks and facial coverings are still mandatory. The University Transit Service will also restore service to stops at Garrett Hall and Monroe Hall whenever UTS is serving McCormick Road. Those stops had been dropped to help UTS manage the capacity restrictions. Visit the UTS website to learn more about specific details.To learn more about transit, consider attending the Regional Transit Partnership’s meeting on Thursday at 4 p.m. On the agenda is a look at the Regional Transit Vision plan that is in development by the Thomas Jefferson Planning District.

The Charlottesville Planning Commission got a look last week at a preliminary budget for the capital improvement program for the fiscal years 2023 through 2027. Council will vote next spring to approve the first year of spending, but decisions for future years would be for future versions of Council. (November 23 presentation) (watch the meeting)But first, what is a capital improvement program? Krissy Hammill is a Senior Budget and Management Analyst for the City of Charlottesville. “It’s basically a five-year financing plan that contains infrastructure type projects that usually cost more than $50,000,” Hammill said. “They’re generally non-recurring and non-operational and they generally have a useful life of five years or more.” Major items are usually funded by debt the city takes on in the form of bond sales. Investors front the money in exchange for a steady and guaranteed return. Like Albemarle County, Charlottesville has a AAA bond rating that is both attractive to investors and has a low interest rate. The latter results in a lower debt-service payment for the city. “We are actually part of a very small group of localities that have that rating,” Hammill said. “It is the premiere marker of a locality’s financial stability in strength.” In recent years, Council has increased the amount of spending on affordable housing initiatives, directly funding redevelopment of public housing and Friendship Court. In the past budget cycle, Council expressed a willingness to fund the configuration of City Schools. “We had a placeholder for that project at $50 million and based on Council’s direction from a meeting in October, that has now been increased from $50 million to $75 million,” Hammill said. “The funding has been moved up from FY25 to FY24. We also know that in doing this there will need to be additional revenue enhancements to pay for the additional debt service that will be required.”Revenue enhancements can be translated as “tax increase” and Hammill has previously told Council and the public that the equivalent of a 15 cent increase on the property tax rate may be required to cover the cost. There’s the possibility of the next General Assembly allowing Charlottesville voters to decide on a sales-tax increase with proceeds going toward schools. Even with that possibility, the city may not be able to make any new investments for some time. “We know that our debt capacity will be exhausted for some period of time,” Hammill said. In the current fiscal year, debt service is just under five percent of the $192.2 million General Fund Budget. That amount does not include the amount of general fund cash used for capital projects. That number will increase. “The plan put before you has debt service basically doubling from just over ten million to just over $20 million within a very short period of time, about four years,” Hammill said. A draft of the next Capital Improvement Program won’t be officially presented to Council until late February or early March. Hammill documented several other revisions to the preliminary budget. At Council’s direction, $18.25 million in city funds for the West Main Streetscape were transferred to the school reconfiguration project as well as $5 million from a parking garage on 7th and Market Street. In December 2018, a previous City Council signed an agreement with Albemarle County to provide parking as part of a multimillion project to locate a joint General District Court downtown. Subsequent Councils have opted to not build a new parking garage to honor the terms of that agreement. (read the agreement)“We don’t have any specifics right now,” said Chris Engel, the city’s economic development director. “We’re in the midst of conversation with the county about the fact that we’re not going to build a structure and what the agreement leaves them with regard to their options and trying to figure out what’s best for both parties.” Pre-construction of the courts facility is underway. Another adjustment in the city’s preliminary capital improvement program is additional funding for a comprehensive plan for the Parks and Recreation Department. “This would be to look at Parks and Rec programs,” Hammill said. “This is not the normal master plan for the parks per se master planning process, but more of a programmatic master plan.” There are also programs for drainage issues at Oakwood Cemetery and McIntire Park as well as funding to assist the removal of dead Ash trees in the city. Council has also approved a housing plan that asks for $10 million a year on affordable housing initiatives. Hammill said not all of the funding for that initiative would come from the capital improvement program budget. City Council will review the Charlottesville Affordable Housing Fund at its meeting on December 6. Another item not in the capital budget is private funding for a sidewalk on Stribling Avenue. Southern Development has offered to loan the city $2.9 million to cover the cost of the project as part of a rezoning in Fry’s Spring area. The Charlottesville Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the preliminary CIP on December 14. Finally today, the second shout-out for today specifically asked you to check out a local news story. Here’s one to begin with. Last week, Carly Haynes of CBS19 reported on the intersection of Preston Avenue and Grady Avenue in Charlottesville. Charlottesville was awarded $7.743 million in a Smart Scale project to alter the intersection. Learn more in this report from November 23rd.Special announcement of a continuing promo with Ting!

Critical race theory has transformed from a once-obscure academic concept to an issue at the forefront of America's political discourse. In the wake of Glenn Youngkin's victory in Virginia, many have viewed his opposition to critical race theory and his concerns surrounding the teaching of race in schools as a significant factor in his success in this month's election. With the 2022 midterms fast approaching, critical race theory is set to be a hot-button issue as the Republicans attempt to take back control of congress. Yascha Mounk joined Marc and Dany to discuss critical race theory, the current rhetoric on race in the United States, how the Democrat's lost the education narrative, and the stifling of free speech. Mounk is one of the world's leading experts on the crisis of liberal democracy and the rise of populism. He is a contributing writer at The Atlantic, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, and the founder of Persuasion. https://www.aei.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Final-Transcript-WTH-Ep-127-Mounk.pdf (Download the transcript here. )
Episode Notes Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin campaigned on a raft of culture war issues. But it still takes the General Assembly to pass new laws, and Virginia's State Senate still has a Democratic majority. So what powers does the Virginia governor really have? What can a governor do even without new legislation? This week, Bold Dominion sits down with a pair of UVA politics professors for a deeper look at these civics questions that are suddenly relevant to Virginia.
On this episode we speak with Will Ritter who is the Co-Founder and CEO of POOLHOUSE, which creates bold campaigns that win elections, empower brands, and move people to action. We discuss the genesis of POOHOUSE and how their approach to ad-making made the difference on election day for Glenn Youngkin in Virginia. The Business of Politics Show, hosted by Eric Wilson, is a production of Startup Caucus, an investment fund and incubator for Republican campaign technology. Visit StartupCaucus.com to learn more.
This conversation is with Danny Laub, a partner at POOLHOUSE, the Republican ad agency that created Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin's ads for his campaign. Laub talks about the Youngkin campaign and Virginia politics in general.
Welcome back to the Bill Bradley Collective, where this week your hosts take the temperature of some of the recent changes in leadership across sports and politics. To the shock of no one, the expected returns are not great! Tune in, as we take Collective flamethrowers to UConn's hiring of noted failson (but former NFL coach!!!) Jim Mora, Jr.; the Virginia gubernatorial election with a focus on victorious businessman/huckster Glenn Youngkin; fissure in New York's Democratic Party following a Buffalo mayoral election pitting moderate incumbent and GOP-favored Byron Brown versus progressive socialist India Walton who had originally defeated Brown in the party's primary; and finally Jason Kidd, a curious choice by the Dallas Mavericks as head coach for obvious on-the-court reasons but also considering Kidd's history of domestic violence coupled with the organization's recent problems regarding sexual harassment and improper workplace conduct. But it's not all bad, as we conclude with a toast to Boston mayor-elect Michelle Wu following a victory that made her the first woman and person of color to be elected mayor of the city on a hill. But first some rants, as Zak leads us off with, to put as mildly as one can, a scathing rebuke of Dave Portnoy and his merry band of twisted sycophants for their efforts to downplay graphic accounts of sexual impropriety committed by the aforementioned scumbag; Ed details the hypocrisy of the Baseball Hall of Fame in the case of member Bud Selig and how it could be that many of his meal tickets, namely Barry Bonds, continue to sit on the outside of Hall induction; and finally Andrew comments on the myth of Coach Mike Krzyzewski and the shameless self-indulgence of the athletic farewell tour.
On this week's show, Andrew Rotherham, cofounder and partner at Bellwether Education partners, joins Mike Petrilli and David Griffith to discuss Glenn Youngkin's election and what it means for education politics. He shared his thoughts about this on an interview for The 74, where he described the problem with Democrats ignoring parental concerns, in Virginia and nationally, about gifted education, Covid protocols, and how race is discussed in schools. But he also cautioned that Republicans shouldn't misread the situation and overreach. After this discussion, on the Research Minute, Adam Tyner examines a study looking at the effectiveness of credit recovery courses.Feedback welcome!Have ideas or feedback on our podcast?

For the first time in 12 years, a Republican won the governorship in Virginia. And it wasn't just any victory — to claim the seat, Glenn Youngkin had to beat Terry McAuliffe, former governor and Democratic royalty. In this special presentation of Playbook Deep Dive, Ryan Lizza digs into the narrow win with Youngkin campaign strategists Jeff Roe and Kristin Davison, and the mistakes they think McAuliffe's campaign made. Plus, senior politics editor Charlie Mahtesian on the significant places Youngkin gained the most votes. Ryan Lizza is a Playbook co-author for POLITICO.

Inflation is at its highest in nearly three decades and that has big potential costs, but how much is it really under his control? Josh Barro, Elizabeth Bruenig and Ross Douthat kick around some ideas the president could try, whether it's a good idea to try them now, and how to fix the persistent weirdness in the American economy since the pandemic. Next: already it seems Democrats are recalibrating some positions since Glenn Youngkin's win in Virginia. The panel discusses voters' skepticism for politics and politicians when it seems like they're holding the ball on their true policy views, and if Republicans have picked a sustainable position on education. Our special guest this week is Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who has a new book, “Integrity Counts,” about the now-famous phone call he received from President Trump about “finding” votes to put him ahead of Biden in Georgia. He tells the panel why he thinks the system isn't as broken as the right and left claim. Secretary Raffensperger also talks about Georgia's new voting law. Finally: devastating conspiracy theories about an already devastating tragedy in Houston; a rant about reactions to the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial, and why you should leave your very personal aspects of your life in the private sphere...not in a national publication.

It's been a rough week for Democrats. They lost a governor's race in Virginia and just barely held on in New Jersey – and even in New York City, Democrats lost city council seats to Republicans. What does this national rejection mean for the midterm elections, and how did things go so wrong for them? First, we discuss why Glenn Youngkin won in a remarkably high turnout election in Virginia, and what was behind his gains in the suburbs and in diverse, historically Democratic cities. Did Donald Trump's endorsement play into it? Was it a bad strategic move for his Democratic opponent to compare him to the former president? Also on the show: why Youngkin's more centrist than the media says he is, and how his campaign on education was about a lot more than critical race theory. The panel talks through local races across the country and what they say about the issues voters care about. Voters in Minneapolis and St. Paul voted to establish rent control, and Boston elected a progressive mayor. Are places that aren't seeing a surge in crime and unrest actually more likely to want progressive policies? What does this mixed bag of results mean for the left? Plus, your weekly infrastructure update: Congress is very, very close to passing this bill (again). There's also a new (Liz says worse) resurrection of a paid leave program. But with the scores from this week's election, how much are voters counting on Democrats and President Biden to “build back better”? Finally: Sean Trende wants you to read Ulysses and if you're incensed by “let's go, Brandon,” Liz and Josh implore you to chill out.
Eric Boehlert talking with Molly Jong-Fast about how the press, and the Dems, are needlessly freaking out as “everything has to be a churning drama” now. Plus, Lawrence Lessig says “I don't like to gloat”—but things are “a thousand times worse” than he warned that they could get a decade ago, and HEATED writer explains why the Glasgow climate summit “should've been covered like insurrection”—and why “it's super-not.” Maybe when we're all in our boats they'll start connecting the dots?If you haven't heard, every single week The New Abnormal does a special bonus episode for Beast Inside, the Daily Beast's membership program. where Sometimes we interview Senators like Cory Booker or the folks who explain our world in media like Jim Acosta or Soledad O'Brien.

As Garland calls concerned parents domestic terrorists, Virginia implements transgender bathrooms, and Loudoun County covers up a rape, parents WIN! Last night, a massive red wave crashed over the commonwealth of Virginia and Republicans swept all three state-wide elections, freeing themselves from Critical Race Theory and radical leftist ideology. Why did Glenn Youngkin take such a significant victory over McAullife? Liz breaks down the most important parts of what seems to be a pretty clear template for winning. But not too fast—there's still a lot of work to do before the next election, starting with shutting down Democrats' super shady electioneering tactics. Looking @ you, Fairfax County.

On Wednesday's Mark Levin Show, in a revolt against the American Marxists, patriotic Americans spoke up, became activists, and went to the polls. They won, and we're seeing Republican victories in races all across the country. This program was clear in its call for activism, seven months ago, to identify the American Marxists and stop the siege of their de-growth and critical race theory movements at our local school boards. Then, 55% of Hispanic voters in Virginia voted for Glenn Youngkin, yet the media keeps repeating the Democrats' lies that Republicans are racist White supremacists. This is why they acted as if Donald Trump were on the ballot because they spent years painting Trump as such. Later, this is a battle between those who love America and those who don't. Enough of the divisiveness from the irrelevant corrupt media. It's thanks to activists like Edward Durr, a trucker from NJ, who ran against the NJ Senate President spent $153 and won! Afterward, Democrats and the White House are pushing radical proposals including vaccinating small children. There is no proof to know what effect COVID vaccines will have on kids and that is a fact! The entire purpose of adults getting the vaccine was to protect them from those that may be ill, that includes the unvaccinated! If the vaccine works then there shouldn't be a problem.

Huge wins for the GOP last night, biggest of course is the massive victory of Glenn Youngkin over slimy Terry McAuliffe. Education was central in this battle, and should provide a template for the GOP going forward. NYC has a new mayor who might be a little better than De Blasio (which isn't saying much). Virginia also has a fantastic new LT Gov- Winsome Sears, the first black female in that state to hold state-wide office and a former Marine. Please subscribe to the podcast!

On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show, its election night in Virginia, New Jersey, and New York. The State of Virginia has passed a law requiring absentee votes to be processed faster so a winner should be known by late tonight or tomorrow morning. Former Governor Terry McAuliffe is looking at a lower turnout than the previous gubernatorial election which benefits the larger-than-normal turnout for Glenn Youngkin who needs 57% of the vote to clinch a win tonight. Then, attorney Marc Elias has a reputation for litigating election challenges and successfully suing to change election outcomes and regulations. In March, Elias and his firm were sanctioned for their practices. Interestingly, vote reporting is late coming out of Fairfax County, this is unusual and problematic. Later, educational bureaucrats like Randi Weingarten and the media are lying about critical race theory and are pushing for Terry McAuliffe and Phil Murphy. Some teachers have admitted that students should be taught many theories and critical race theory is among those. Recent news of a sexual assault in a Loudoun County, VA school may affect swing voters in favor of Youngkin. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Joe Manchin "anti-Black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant" for opposing Biden's Build Back Better Act.

On Monday's Mark Levin Show, under President Biden and the Democrats, the nation is unraveling. Things have gotten so bad that even Chuck Todd points out that Biden is incompetent and ineffective as his approval ratings continue to sink. Even Joe Manchin is backing away from Biden's inflation debacle. Then, Matthew Foldi from the Washington Free Beacon calls in to explain how Terry McAuliffe's campaign used Democrat staffers to masquerade as 'White supremacists" posing in front of Glenn Youngkin's campaign bus. The Democrat front-group The Lincoln project claimed responsibility for the hoax despite the level of apparent coordination from the McAuliffe campaign. Afterward, we must take heed to the admonition of Reagan; freedom isn't passed on through the bloodstream, it must be fought for. Later, Brian Kilmeade, calls in to discuss his new book " The President and the Freedom Fighter: Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Their Battle to Save America's Soul."
