Let’s begin today with a Patreon-fueled shout-out. Charlottesville 350 is the local chapter of a national organization that seeks to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Charlottesville 350 uses online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions to oppose new coal, oil and gas projects, and build 100% clean energy solutions that work for all. To learn more about their most active campaigns, including a petition drive to the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank, visit their Facebook page at facebook.com/cville350                                                                                                                  On today’s program:The CDC has approved booster shots for all adult AmericansThe city fills one position while another became vacant The Virginia Supreme Court appoints two Special Masters to complete the redistricting process Members of the Crozet Community Advisory Committee debrief after Supervisors adopt a master planCOVID updateAs the week ended, the percent positivity creeped up slightly to 5.8 percent as reported by the Virginia Department of Health and the seven day average rose to 1,518. Nearly a million Virginians have received a third dose or a booster shot. The seven day average for doses administered a day was 40,389 on Friday. Also on Friday, the Food and Drug Administration authorized the use of the Moderna and Pfizer booster shots for all adults, and the Centers for Disease Control followed suit later in the day. Dr. Costi Sifri is director of hospital epidemiology at the University of Virginia Health System, and he said this means anyone who completed their two-dose cycle of Pfizer and Moderna can now get a booster dose. “We’re at a point right now where that is going to start including a fair number of people,” Dr. Sifri said. “It’s clear that boosters are really beneficial in boosting up the number of antibodies.”Dr. Sifri said there are an increasing number of “breakthrough-cases” in people who were vaccinated over six months ago. Some of these cases have resulted in hospitalizations and Dr. Sifri recommended those at higher risk should schedule their booster. “I really strongly encourage those people to get a booster especially as we head into the holiday season and as we are starting to see increasing rates of COVID in the nation as well as our community,” Dr. Sifri said. Dr. Sifri said others should consider getting the third dose, especially if they want to avoid contracting COVID. “There hasn’t been much of a rush,” Dr. Sifri said. “Right now we understand that about 16 percent of people in our health district who are eligible for a booster vaccine has received one.”Dr. Reid Adams is the Chief Medical Officer at UVA Health. His recommendation is a little more sharp.“I think the time is now,” Dr. Adams said. “We have gotten to a lower rate in Virginia but it’s certainly not low enough. If you look around the country, particularly in the midwest and the upper plains, we’re really seeing a surge so ideally folks would get their booster now before that happens here.” People who want to schedule a booster dose or get vaccinated for the first time can do so at vaccinate.virginia.gov. There are plenty of appointments and shots.“We have not seen long waits for booster doses here at the medical center,” Dr. Sifri said. “Those are available. In addition there is the availability of getting booster vaccines through local pharmacies and the Blue Ridge Health District.”Since November 6, over 4,674 children between the ages of 5 and 11 have been vaccinated, or around 25 percent of the eligible population. Sage Smith disappearanceToday marks nine years since Sage Smith disappeared, having last been seen in the 500 block of West Main Street. The Charlottesville Police Department put out a release this morning stating they are still seeking the whereabouts of Erik McFadden, calling him a critical person of interest in the case. The two had been expected to meet the night of November 20, 2012, but Smith has not been heard from since. McFadden is believed to have left town rather than speak to the police. “Smith was a beloved family member and friend to many in the Charlottesville and LGBTQ+ communities,” the release reads. “Although [nne] years have passed, CPD is hopeful with the help of the media and continued public interest, we can finally solve this case and bring closure to a family and community that continues to experience anguish.” A missing persons report was filed for McFadden in June 2019 but multiple leads have not turned up any further developments. For more information, take a look at the release. Charlottesville personnel updateThe city has hired a Minority Business Development Coordinator. Ajoni Wynn-Floyd will take the position within the city’s Economic Development Department. The Minority Business Program was created in 2018 to assist qualified businesses with one-on-one business consulting, start-up assistance, and help registering to be vendors for state and local government. “The program is focused on increasing the number of minority- and woman-owned businesses that are registered vendors with the City and to encourage more City spending with such businesses,” reads the intake form on the city’s website.Wynn-Floyd has worked with the Latino Student Alliance and the Diversity Awareness Program board. Earlier this month, the city’s Tree Commission learned of the resignation of Mike Ronayne, the city’s urban forester. He served in the position for five years. The position has not yet been advertised on the Charlottesville jobs board as of Friday afternoon.  At that November 2 meeting, Tree Commission chair Brian Menard said the city must demonstrate support for urban forestry.“We need to have more resources, not just financially, but we need more resources in terms of hands that can do this work and support this work,” Menard said. “We recognize that this has not been an ordinary 18 months but even before then it was clear that there’s just a lot that’s put on one person,” Menard said. Map-drawers selectedThe Virginia Supreme Court has appointed two special masters to complete the process of redistricting maps for the General Assembly and the U.S. House of Representatives. Sean P. Trende and Bernard F. Grofman are the selected candidates. “Though each was nominated by legislative leaders of a particular political party, the Nominees… shall serve as officers of the Court in a quasi-judicial capacity,” reads the appointment order made Friday.The pair will work on a single map and have 30 days to complete their work. According to the order, Trende and Grofman must resolve differences in good-faith and are not permitted to consult with anyone except for designated staff at the Supreme Court and the Virginia Division of Legislative Services. They are directed to take into account the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and the Voting Rights Act. “In short, the Court expects to receive from its Special Masters redistricting maps that have been drafted using factors that are fully compliant with constitutional and statutory law applied in an apolitical and nonpartisan manner,” reads the order. Trende was nominated by Republicans and is a senior elections analyst with Real Clear Politics. Grofman is a political science professor at the University of California at Irvine.

For a good summary of what happened on October 20, read Allison Wrabel’s story in the October 21 Daily Progress. Or Lisa Martin’s story in the November 5 Crozet Gazette.On November 10, the Crozet CAC had the opportunity to talk about the plan. Chair Allie Pesch didn’t have anything prepared, and neither had Planning Manager Rachel Falkenstein. The Albemarle Planning Commission had recommended removing the Middle Density Residential designation from a portion of downtown Crozet, but there were four votes on the Board of Supervisors to move forward. White Hall District Supervisor Ann Mallek ended up voting with that majority on the eventual 5 to 1 vote in support of the plan’s update.“I should have done it differently,” Mallek said. “I should have made the motion I was going to make that adopted the Planning Commission’s route and if that had been voted down we would have been much more clear to the membership in the community what was going on.”  Meetings in Albemarle are still virtual due to the pandemic and Mallek said the logistics of getting that motion moved forward were difficult to accomplish over Zoom. She acknowledged that many landowners in Crozet are concerned about the increased density. Many CAC members thought their concerns were too easily dismissed.“I found a fair amount of pretty serious community input ignored at points and I feel that ever since the state abolished the ability to negotiate proffers, developers kind of trump most of the decisions,” said Brian Day.Day referred to legislation in 2016 that rendered invalid an Albemarle policy that required a cash payment from developers for every new unit authorized by a rezoning. Proffers are still legal if they are deemed reasonable and contribute to the direct impact of a development. However, the 2016 legislation ushered a cooling off point where localities were hesitant to even discuss the issue. This past week, for instance, representatives of Greystar Development said they would pay a proportional amount toward upgrades on Old Ivy Road. Michael Monaco, a new member of the CAC, said he felt public input had to be broadened in range. He said Crozet needs more housing and more entry-level jobs so young people can stay.“I think any process that is guided mostly by homeowners is going to be guided mostly by the financial interests of homeowners, consciously or not,” Monaco said. “Any attempt to counter that would be wise.” Kostas Alibertis is on his second term on the CAC. “I think the struggle and the challenge that we had here was the vision of the county versus the vision of the community and I think we’ll always have that unless there is some delineation of where those lines are, and I think that’s what led to all of this frustration,” Alibertis said. Shawn Bird said the process was hurt by a lack of in-person community engagement meetings due to the pandemic.“If you remember those meetings we had at the high school, I thought there was really strong turn out, I thought there were people energized by the process, we had a certain momentum behind it,” Bird said. “I saw new people coming out to those things and then COVID hit and we all had to jump on our computers and it just changed the whole dynamic.”During the process, the CAC took votes indicating a majority were not in favor of the middle density residential category. Those votes are not binding and are only symbolic, but Bird defended the practice as well a 2017 survey (as published in the Crozet Gazette),“I think the powers that be need to know was this issue 13 to 2, or 8 to 7, by the CCAC?” Bird said. “I think you need to quantify to some degree where the citizens fall on particular issues. In my mind, that’s what makes a survey much more powerful to some degree than anecdotal one-offs by people who have the time to jump on these cools and may have the loudest voices.”Allie Pesch said the master plan update was revision and not a rewrite. She said an analysis of the update should look at whether existing goals are being met.“We’ve wanted to increase affordable housing for a while and the solution seemed to be just to increase density and not really look at how that has or hasn’t worked in the existing plan,” Pesch said. Marc McKenney is in his first term on the CAC and he said many are concerned that Albemarle has not made the investments to support that density. “There’s been massive growth in Crozet in the past two decades,” McKenney said. “Population went from 2,200 in 2000, to 5,500 in 2010, to 9,500 or 9,200 a decade later. (TRIM) If we cannot show citizens what’s actually been delivered from an infrastructure perspective, I guarantee you there will be a complete loss in faith by citizens to the county that they have their best interest in providing sidewalks, and road repairs, and bridges.”Some of the current projects in the planning process are:$1.5 million in improvement to the Square anticipated to be completed in May 2023 (page 26 here), $21.25 million expansion of Crozet Elementary School expected to be completed in August 2022 (page 28 here)Sidewalk improvements on U.S. 250 West from Cory Farms to Cloverlawn (page 44)A revenue-sharing application was submitted to the Virginia Department of Transportation on October 1 to complete Eastern Avenue across Lickinghole Creek to Cory Farms Road (Albemarle transportation priority #8)Improvements at Crozet Avenue and U.S. 250 West are being considered for Smart Scale recommendations in 2022 (Albemarle transportation priority #21) The adoption of the Crozet Master Plan happened just before the first phase of the county’s Comprehensive Plan review got underway. A public kickoff meeting will take place in January. Supervisor Mallek urged members of the CAC to become engaged in that process to ensure that Crozet’s voice can be heard.“While people may feel discouraged about particular outcomes in our process, we all need to be keeping our eyes on this other prize going forward because from natural resource planning to historic preservation to climate change to all slews of things, that is the core book that the Board and the staff refer to and this is our chance to make sure that our local words are maintained,” Mallek said. One of the items to be discussed during the Comp Plan review will be the county’s growth management policy. Thanks to Ting for their support in helping this program be produced each day.

President Biden has promised to sign his long-awaited infrastructure legislation into law on Monday.

China and the US signed an agreement on coal, but progressives are already complaining that not enough was accomplished. And the House Investigation into the January 6th attack on the US Capitol has run into an entirely predictable roadblock, which is that the former president is invoking executive privilege.

Lessons From Tuesday's Elections: What Do The Parties Take Away From The Results?

Tuesday was a heartbreaker for Democrats. Republican Glen Youngkin is the new governor of Virginia, and Republican Jack Ciattarelli came very close to unseating Democratic Governor Phil Murphy in New Jersey. Those are states that just a year ago, Joe Biden won by ten and 17 points respectively. Throughout America, Tuesday's elections big and small seemed to point to a rejection of the president and at least some of his policies, and to troubles ahead for Democrats in next year's mid-terms. Democrats, of course, can make a course correction, although what direction they should go in is a matter of debate within the party. Meanwhile, Republicans will still have to deal with the wild card that is Donald Trump and again, there's disagreement over how much Tuesday tells us about running with, for, or against the former president.

President Biden on Thursday night at a CNN town hall in Baltimore made news as he discussed the future of the Senate filibuster, and the fate of his “Build Back Better” economic initiative. Biden has been forced to shed some progressive items in the bill to win the support of key moderates in the Senate, while at the same time trying to keep progressives on board. Key provision he has had to jettison include the long-promised tax increases on corporations and wealthy individuals. One person blocking increased taxes is Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, who has emerged as a key player in the negotiations. In Virginia, the race is getting tighter, with education emerging as a key issue. Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe continues to lead in the RealClear Average of Polls, but newcomer Glenn Youngkin is surprising a lot of people.

How Trustworthy Are American Elections? Elliot Ackerman Joins the Discussion on Restoring Faith in The Electoral Process

RealClearPolitics Takeaway

Next week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer plans to send a new voting rights bill to the Senate Floor. It is the latest attempt to “fix” the American electoral process, and it raises questions about what is exactly wrong, what can be done to improve faith in election results, and who wins and who loses from changing the way we vote. One thing we do know is that a lot of Americans don't trust election results. A Gallup poll from 2020 shows that only forty percent of Americans say they are confident in the honesty of US elections. Only one-third of Republican voters believe that the 2020 presidential election was “free and fair,” and after the 2016 contest, 28 percent of Democrats expressed skepticism that the votes had been counted accurately. So how bad is it? Are elections truly untrustworthy or is this a perception problem borne of political opportunism – where if you don't like the results, you attack the referee? RealClearPolitics co-founder and president Tom Bevan, senior elections analyst Sean Trende, and Elliot Ackerman, author of “2034: A Novel of the Next Word War,” co-written with Admiral James Stavridis, join Andrew Walworth on today's RealClearPolitics Takeaway podcast.

Biden's Declining Poll Numbers, Mitch McConnell Comes Under Fire in the GOP, and Why Are the Polls Tightening in The Virginia's Governors Race?

It was another week of deadlines and deal making on Capitol Hill, culminating in a Senate Vote on Thursday to raise the country's debt limit by $480 billion, thereby pushing the prospects of a default to December. Eleven Republicans, led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, voted with the Democrats to overcome a filibuster - a move that prompted criticism of McConnell from some of his fellow Republicans but also kept the country solvent, at least for a few more weeks. In Virginia, polls are tightening in the gubernatorial race between Democratic former Governor Terry McAuliffe and Republican newcomer Glenn Youngkin. The race is considered a test case for the 2022 midterms and beyond. What issues are resonating with voters, and will Virginia continue to trend blue? And a look at the latest polls. There is not great news for President Biden this week as his approval numbers continue to slide, and – perhaps not surprising but still noteworthy - new polling from the University of Virginia reveals just how many Americans are ready for a national divorce over politics. Tom Bevan, co-founder and president of RealClearPolitics, Carl Cannon, Washington bureau chief, and Susan Crabtree, national correspondent join Andrew Walworth on today's RealClearPolitics Takeaway podcast.

Pelosi says she's confident and calm, but she is certainly heading into a weekend of nonstop negotiations, made even more treacherous because of the need for Congress to raise the debt ceiling or face the possibility that the federal government will default on its financial obligations.

Governor Gavin Newsom prevailed in his quest to retain his office last Tuesday in the California recall election, notching a 30-point victory over the Republican-led effort to remove him from office. Pundits are feasting on the lessons from those results: what do they mean for the midterms and beyond? In Virginia, another closely watched election is now underway, as early voting in that state's gubernatorial contest starts Friday, although the results won't be known until November. And listeners of a certain age may remember the party game “Twister," where the point is to contort yourself into all sorts of pretzel shapes without falling down. Democrats on Capitol Hill are engaged in a very high stakes version of that game, as they try to keep their caucus together to pass both a reconciliation bill that includes big tax hikes, as well as an infrastructure bill that enjoys more popular support. This week, it was the green energy portion of the bill that required some fancy moves to keep the game going. Will these gyrations lead to success, or will it all comes crashing down? Tom Bevan, RealClearPolitics co-founder and president, Carl Cannon, Washington bureau chief, and Sean Trende, senior elections analyst, join Andrew Walworth to discuss these events and more on today's RealClearPolitics Takeaway podcast.

On Thursday, President Biden signed an executive order requiring COVID-19 vaccination for all federal employees. He instructed the Labor Department to develop rules that would force private businesses with more than 100 employees to make full vaccination or weekly testing compulsory. And he said he plans to mandate vaccines for those working in hospitals or other medical facilities that treat Medicare and Medicaid patients. It's a big expansion of federal power – some say it is unconstitutional – and it sets up a fight with those Republican governors who oppose mandates, some of whom have already pledged to defy the new federal rules. Also this week, the Democrats are counting down the days until September 27 – the self-imposed deadline for a vote on the president's “build back better bill “– a spending package with an unknowable price tag, festooned with all sorts of new entitlements. With a slim majority in the House and a 50/50 divide in the senate, every vote is critical. Is compromise possible, and what happens if the “strategic pause” advocated by Senator Joe Manchin lasts through the fall? And Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11. What is the meaning of this date, and how has America changed in the two decades since the fall of the twin towers, the crash at the Pentagon, and the downing of Flight 93?
