RE: [HRPatriots] local groups - Peninsula Tea Party


I completely understand your frustration with organizing campaigns! Last year and earlier this year, I tried to put together several events. It’s a struggle getting people involved.


When it comes to political campaigns and the Republican Party, the chairs of the Republican Party have ample resources to organized these events.


Over the past couple of months, one of the issues I’ve been working is opposing the Hampton’s Rental House Inspection Program but I’ll include in another email.


As for organizing, our local government has adopted a collectivist mentality. They intend to use government to control society. No matter who gets elected Tuesday, the wheels are in motion at the local/regional level unless we can stop it. I understand that people wanting to get the “Big Three” elected but if we’re to remain free, we must remove politics from our economy.


What I heard at the Hampton City council meeting last week will make your ears bleed. This will not be confined to Hampton.

I echo everyone else. Been helping VA Republicans in Yorktown w/ some canvasing but last couple of weeks I've been busy with some other things. This weekend is booked to with personal issues. (All of my cars have broken down in one way or another and limited funds means I have to do the work myself.)  


I may be able to help w/ an email or letter writing thing but I haven't had time to get it organized. I added Brian to this since he is basically Chair of PTP I think, and I have sent an inquiry or two his way in the last month (email) and wondering if he heard from them and if PTP is doing anything.

Wayne is shrewd to discern that it is partially strategic for the powers that be to “overwhelm the system in order to collapse it.” Sound familiar? It should to most of you. It’s straight out of Saul Alinski’s “Rules for Radicals.”


It is the very same tactic to so burden small businesses and pre-occupying them with increased taxes and fees that they won’t have the time to fight, nor won’t have the money, either.


I did say the strategy was only “partially” strategic to this issue. The remaining motivation for increased taxation is the usual greed for the usual desire to spend more of your money. That, too, further increases their power of us all.  


Good job, Wayne.

I hear you Shirley,

Your e-mail falls upon my own sense of responsibility and even guilt.  I’m sure there are a million stories in the big city but my excuses have to do with little time and no money. 

I’m so busy dodging bullets that I can’t join the fight.  Our businesses are hurting because of the taxation and impossibility of competing with Newport News.  I.e. “entertainment tax” just went form 7.5% (already too high) to 10%.  That puts a serious burden on our already economy diminished business so they can use the money to build 4 new K-3-5 schools (essentially free daycare) that is killing my biggest tenant, a daycare that occupies 3 spaces. 

Everywhere I turn I’m staring at the bank or the government coming for money I don’t have.  I have to do all the landscaping (where I should be right now) because I can’t afford it. 

I know that part of the plan (conscious or not) is to keep us so damn overwhelmed that we can’t fight.  Unfortunately it is working all too well.  Still Sandy has been able to get out and canvas a little.  Let me know if you need a place to meet, I believe we can use LazerRush for up to about 30 folks on a Monday night when we’re closed.

Thanks for your motivational reminder.  I don’t know where you always seem to have all that positive energy.  “They will run and not grow tired,” comes to mind, perhaps we run healthier when our cause is just.

Let’s make the effort to rekindle our love for all humanity because if we let it die here, it will die everywhere.

Keep the faith,



P.S. My Sunday is full.

Hello everyone


Are these 2 groups still active? Does anyone in the Hampton Roads Patriots and Peninsula TEA Party get involved in local politics anymore? I only see emails but no calls for action. I've invited members to help with sign waves, door knocking, phone calling, etc but no one ever responds, so I'm under the impression these groups are only active via the exchange of emails and such.


If anyone does want to do something besides email and post, let me know.

If ever there was a time for people to group together and grow their numbers, it is now.

Everyone is scattered, and when the boom comes down, we'll be out of touch.

It's coming. The gun grab is next. Obama has been testing the degree of resistance he might encounter for his gun grab by first pushing us via the TSA, NSA, the shutdown and treatment of Vets. We didn't riot or even push back to any significant degree. He thinks we are all bark and no bite and is pretty much resigned to believe we will act thusly when DHS comes knocking, that we will just willingly hand over our guns.

He is scrubbing our military clean of Constitutionally grounded generals and top commanders and militarizing our police forces. We all know this.


The fact that there are no groups meeting on this side of the water anymore is very troubling. I see other groups on twitter across the country who are cohesive and continue to grow. I would hope that those of us still getting emails would be involved in this election. I know some of you are and are working hard for Cuccinelli, Jackson, and Obenshain as well as for our General Assembly candidates.


I want to do a sign wave sometime this weekend but unless we have at least a dozen of us, it won't look very good. Reply back if you are interested. Someone needs to show this area we all aren't apathetic and detached from the real world, that some of us here DO care who gets into office.



God bless~

------District 5 and Crime Watch Report November 2013*------


Report Content


- 1. Updates and Announcements

- 2. Board of Supervisors Action


1.  Announcements and Updates


a.  The General Election is November 5, 2013 to elect a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General and Members of the House of Delegates for the 91st, 93rd, and 96th districts.  The Bethel precinct poll is located at Tabb Elementary School and the Tabb precinct poll is located at Tabb High School.  The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Your assigned voting precinct can be found on your voter registration card or by going online to and selecting “Voter Registration,” which is under County Services.  In order to vote, you will be required to show an acceptable form of identification such as Virginia voter registration card, valid Virginia driver’s license, military ID, or valid student ID issued in Virginia.  Candidates for Governor are:  Terry R. McAuliffe (D), Ken T. Cuccinelli, II (R) and Robert C. Sarvis (L).  Candidates for Lieutenant Governor: Ralph S. Northam (D) and E. W. Jackson (R).  Candidates for Attorney General are Mark R.

Monty Mason (D) and Michael B. “Mike” Watson (R), and 96th District Brenda L. Pogge (R).


b.  Educational and entertaining programs are being offered at the Senior Center of York in November.  Participation is open to seniors age 55 or older.  The Center is located in the Washington Square Shopping Center at 5314  George Wash. Mem. Hwy. and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  The variety of programs include Computer and General Use, AARP Driver Safety Program, Scrapbooking & Greeting Cards, plus many others.  For more information, visit


c.  There are 29 citizen boards and commissions made up of volunteers that support our local government.  The volunteers play an important role helping our local government to identify desired services, ensure efficient use of facilities, and in improving the quality of life we currently enjoy throughout the County.  You can get more information about the boards and commissions by going online to  Once you are on the County’s homepage, scroll over to “Online Services, “ which will present you with a drop down menu.  Select “Boards/Commissions.”   If you are interested in participating on a board or commission, you will need to complete the Board Bank Application, which is highlighted in red.  The application will allowed you to list up to three different boards and commissions.  The completed application will remain on file and the County staff will contact you for updates prior to submission to the Board of Supervisors for consideration.


d.  The annual District 5 Town Meeting was held on October 16 with about 100 citizens in attendance.  Here are highlight from the meeting:


            (1)  York County’s population now stands at around 67,000, which ranks it 18th in population of the state’s 95 counties and 29th of the state’s 134 cities and counties.  York is the 6th most densely populated county.  Over 80% of the population lives in the lower-end of the County.  The County’s average density is 625 people per square mile.  District 5, the smallest district, is approximately 5 ½ square miles and has a population density of 2,700 per square mile.  At 7,500 people per square mile, the area around Yorkshire Downs is one of the state’s most densely populated census track.


            (2)  Fire and Life Rescue is provided to District 5 by the Tabb Fire Station (Station 2), which is staffed by a minimum of 4 personal.  The station has one fire engine and one medic unit.  Over the past year, Fire Station 2 responded to a total of 1,828 incidents with a response time of less than 5 minutes.  Within District 5 there were 269 fires and 517 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) incidents.  Since the implementation of EMS recovery cost in 2010, the County has received over $3.6 million in revenue from personal insurance companies. 


            (3)  Crime statistics show that the crime rate for York County is holding steady at 4,225 crimes per 100,000 population.  Hampton’s crime rate is 7,435 while Newport News’ rate is 8,436 per 100,000 population.  Relative hot spots for crime reports in York County include Tabb High School and the area around Yorkshire Downs, which is no surprise when you consider the population density, i.e. more people more crime.  As for Tabb High School, the increase in crime reports appears to be associated with student altercations and some thefts.  As for altercations, in light of recent bullying incidents, any physical contact will most likely result in a response by police.  The good old days of just getting wacked with the paddle by the coach or principal are long gone.  Parents, if your child acts up, you both get to spend some time with the police.  To see the crime report slides from the District 5 briefing, go online to and scroll over to “County Government” and when you see the drop down menu select “Board of Supervisors.”   The District 5 Town Hall Meeting is on the left side of the Board of Supervisors page.


            (4)  The Moores Creek project is finally coming to an end.  Phase IIC will address the flooding that results from an inability of water to quickly leave the lake in Woodlake Crossing during heavy rain events.  The County staff working with an engineering consultant looked at numerous options for solving the drainage issue.  Digging out the spill way from the lake seemed to be the best way to address the problem.  However, EPA wetlands mitigation requirements, which cost about $1,000 per foot of disturbed wetland, proved to be too expensive at approximately $400,000.  The solution is to lower the 10-acre lake about a foot by running two 24-inch drainage pipes underground from the lake to the Big Bethel outfall.  The project is estimated to cost about $200,000.  The project will run from early summer of 2014 to the Spring of 2015.


            (5)  Budget highlights showed that the County’s budget grew from $127.2 million in FY13 to $130.1 million in FY14.  The Supervisors increased school funding by $1.2 million, provided employees with a 2% pay raise, and had to increase health insurance by $400,000.  York County’s  tax rate of $0.715 compares favorably with James City County ($0.77), Poquoson ($0.95), Hampton ($1.24) and Newport News ($1.22).  Only Gloucester County ($0.65) and Williamsburg ($0.57) have a lower rate.  An analysis of the County’s budgeting during the Great Recession (2009 to 2013) shows that during the recession the Board of Supervisors increased funding to the schools by $5 million and increased funding for Public Safety by $2.4 million.  While the two priority areas (schools and public safety) were increased, the Supervisors reduced funding for other services by nearly $7 million.  The County’s total funding contribution to the schools in FY14 is $57.9 million.  A comparative analysis of governments in Hampton Roads shows that York County has the second fewest number of employee per 1,000 residents and the second lowest cost of government per capita.  The District 5 Town Hall meeting slides on the Board of Supervisors page at show 12 additional comparative Performance Measurements based on communities across the U.S. with populations between 25,000 to 100,000.


            (6)  Since establishing the new recycling program in May 2013 the recycle bin set out rate has increased from 49% to 67% and the average recycling has increase from 345 tons to 391 tons per month.  The average solid waste disposal decreased from 1,749 tons to 1,618 tons per month. 


            (7)  Current development plans in District 5 include several small family subdivisions, 23 single family lots in Section 3 of Woods of Mansion Roads, and the building of a strip mall near the Shady Banks Shopping Center.  I have been approached by the owner of the 23-acrea parcel across from the Tabb Library that is between the Meadowlake Farms and Woodlake Crossing neighborhoods for consideration of a multi-family subdivision.  The property is currently zoned R20, which is one house per half acre.   The developer is proffering to provide the YMCA with a large swimming pool on the property.  Other proffers by the developer that might be considered include the retention of trees and buffer between the development and the homes along Stone Lake Court in Woodlake Crossing and improvements to the HOA’s 10-acre lake.  One area of concern with increasing housing density is the subdivision’s impact on existing schools.  Over the past couple of years, the Board of Supervisors have approved multi-family and mixed used developments that have the potential of increasing school enrollment by 660 students.  Currently, County schools appears to have sufficient capacity to handle the increased enrollment.  However, there is some discussion by the School Board to consider the need for a new elementary school.


            (8)  The widening of Route 17 is well underway but unfortunately will take 3 years to complete.  The widening includes the undergrounding of utility lines and the addition of one lane in both directions.   Phase 1 begins at the overpass on Highway 134 and extends up to the bowling alley.  Phase 1 also includes a new higher elevated bridge at Harwood Mills.  Phase 2 will run from the bowling alley to the end of Washington Square Mall.  Phase 3 will end at Wolf Trap Road.  The relocation of utilities will take place in the Phase 2 and 3 zones concurrently with the road construction in the Phase 1 zone.  Various types of simultaneous work along the 3 mile project is the reason for the 35 MPH speed limit. 


            (9)  The widening of I-64 (Phase 1) from near the Jefferson Avenue exchange to the Ft Eustis exchange is funded in the State’s Six Year Transportation Plan.  This means that VDOT has the funding ($100 million)  and can begin the widening.  The current schedule calls for the addition of a single lane in both direction.  The expansion is to begin in 2017 but may be moved up to 2015.  There may be only partial funding for I-64 Phase 2, which runs from the Ft Eustis exchange to Route 199 near the Marquis Shopping Center.  However, when the General Assembly passed HB2313 last year, a new funding source for significant transportation improvements was made available.  The estimated cost for Phase 2 is $160 million.   I suspect the work on the Ft Eustis interchange must be completed before the widening of I-64 in Phase 2.  The interchange is estimate to be about $150 million.  Phase 3, which runs from Route 199 east to Route 199 west near the Lightfoot interchange is unfunded and estimated to cost about $90 million.  VDOT and the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization are studying options for the funding of Phase 2 and 3.  In summary, we should see the completion of I-64 Phase 1 in about 5 years and with the help of funding from HS2313 the possible funding of Phase 2 and 3 in our life time.


            (10) York County waterfront homeowners, particularly those along Lambs Creek, Moores Creek and the Poquoson River, have asked the Board of Supervisors to explore options for helping to keep the waterways navigable.  Years of storms and upstream development have resulted in many of the waterways becoming nearly unusable.  One option that appears doable is to establish Service Districts in which homeowners along the waterfront are assessed an additional tax that is paid into a waterway improvement and maintenance fund.  Tax revenue could be used to issue bonds that would permit near term dredging and routine maintenance.  Current state code allows local governments to establish the Service District for the purpose of dredging creeks and rivers “to maintain existing uses.”  The Board of Supervisors would have to pass an ordinance to establish a Service District, which provides an additional service not provided to the locality as a whole.  Factors involving the prioritization of the projects, inputs from the community, establishing the percentage of homeowner approvals needed to move forward on a project, determining County supplemental funding (if any), the constructability of a project and access to the water, the timing of project implementation and the County’s partnership with homeowners in other localities such as Poquoson, must be addressed before establishing a County Service District for waterfront properties.


2.  Board of Supervisors Action


a.  Sponsored an amendment to the County’s noise ordinance which would reduce the time period from 11 p.m. to 9 p.m. and distance for sounds emanating from a speaker systems and other electronic devices.  The amendment was sent to the Planning Commission for a public hearing and Commission recommendation before coming back to the Board of Supervisors for action. 


b.  Approved Resolution R13-104 to authorize the establishment of a 195 ft. telecommunication tower on 3.3 acres on Penniman Road.  Comment:  These types of towers are designed to withstand high winds.  If they do collapse, they collapse nearly straight downward.


c. Approved Resolution 13-105 to authorize outside storage for a landscaping business on Route 17.  Comment:  The business is located just south of the intersection of Hampton Highway with Route 17.  The business is in the building with the red awning.

Del. Mike Watson - Campaign 2013 - Final Week Update







Campaign 2013

October 30, 2013



Next Wednesday, you'll wake up to know who your Delegate is for the next two years.


Most recipients of my on-line newsletters and session mail know I’ve worked tirelessly to represent our district and kept the promises I made two years ago. 


You’ve seen the mailers and more are coming, so I won’t take your time here to reiterate these accomplishments.  Just know this.  If you approve of my effort to improve Virginia’s business climate, increase student training opportunities, address transportation, and expand opportunities for all our citizens, then you’ll be pleased with the initiatives I’m pushing for 2014. 


I am proud of all that I, with help from my colleagues, have been able to accomplish in two short years.  As I speak with neighbors, most tell me I’ve represented them well, even some that always vote the party line.  I think one of our citizens summed it up pretty well.  She told me, “You’re doing a really good job.  I always vote for the Democrat, but if you win, I hope you keep doing the same thing.”  I smiled, thanked her, and promised her, indeed, I would.


People ask all the time, what can I do to help?  If you’ve wondered that yourself, there is something very important that you can do.  Aside from voting for me on Tuesday, the greatest impact you can have on this election is to call your friends and neighbors to ask them to vote for me.  Just pick 5 people that you know in the 93rd District.  Jot down their names and give them a call.  After asking them to vote for me, ask them to call 5 of their friends to do the same. 


Unfortunately, too many voters focus on the party rather than the person.  In the 93rd District, that makes it much more challenging for a candidate with an 'R' behind their name.  But, if you'll let them know that the issues I try to solve transcend party lines, perhaps you’ll convince them to vote for the only candidate in this race that has always stood up for equal opportunity for all Virginia citizens.


In this update, I’ve included information about Election Day, a list of some of my endorsements, and a few facts that you can use as you talk about this election. But the best argument you can use is this, "Mike did exactly what he said he would when he ran for office."  That’s a characteristic that’s all too rare in politics these days.


When you wake up one week from today, will you ask yourself, could I have done more? 


Thank you for your time and for your support.

Absentee Ballots                

Unable to make it to the polls on Tuesday?  You still have some options but you must act quickly.  If you have already requested an absentee ballot to be mailed to your home, the completed ballot must be returned to the registrar no later than 7:00 pm on Election Day.  If you have not already requested an absentee ballot, you can still complete an application in person up to three days before the election in the office of the local registrar.  After completing the application, you will be allowed to vote absentee in-person using a voting machine in the registrar's office.  Be sure to bring your valid ID.


Election Day Request        

I am asking for your help, just 2 – 3 hours on Tuesday to work outside the polls on Election Day.  You may be surprised to know that many voters will come to vote for the next Governor and not even know who their Delegate is. If you're there with literature handy, you can help .  Many voters are grateful to have a sample ballot and literature to reference. Please consider giving just a couple hours; call Tyler at 645-5298 or email:


Signs & Bumper Magnets        

It’s not too late to get your yard sign or bumper magnet, in fact it’s the perfect time to show your support.  Please call the office or email: and we’ll deliver them to you.



You often see organizations “Endorse” or “Rate” a candidate based on criteria affecting their industry or cause, usually based on voting history, questionnaires, or interviews.  Some endorsements mean more than others, but the key is to look for trends as this will offer an idea of what the candidate is really working to achieve. 


Newspaper endorsements are based on which candidate they believe will have the greatest positive impact on their community.  I am proud to have earned the endorsement of the two print publications that cover the 93rd District, The Daily Press and The Virginia Gazette.


I have also received many endorsements from the business community.  In fact, whenever my opponent and I have been considered for business related endorsements, I've received it every time, without exception.  Some of these include:

National Federation of Independent Business - Virginia Association of Realtors - Virginia Farm Bureau - Associated Builders and Contractors of Virginia - Virginia Peninsula Assoc. of Realtors - Virginia Credit Union League - Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce BizPAC - Williamsburg Area Association of Realtors - Northern VA Technology Council TechPAC - Virginia Transportation Construction Alliance


In addition, I have received top ratings and/or endorsements from:

100% rating – Virginia FREE – 2 consecutive years, 100% rating – VA Chamber of Commerce – 2 consecutive years'A’ Rating from the National Rifle Association, ‘A’ Rating – Wildlife Foundation of Virginia


Attack Ads            

No doubt you've seen my opponent's ads accusing me of some pretty hideous votes from banning birth control, abortion, and in vitro fertilization to defunding cancer screenings. The only word to describe these attacks is ‘lies’.  I've never voted for any such bill and in some cases, did the opposite of what he claims.  Without anything positive to run on, he’s based his entire campaign on a lie.  We planned to stay positive and had done so until this, but have no choice but to respond with proof.  Visit to see just how far he'll go for personal gain while trying to destroy my reputation, then share it with your friends. Isn’t this what what voters are sick of?  This kind of campaign is what keeps good people from seeking public office and I urge you to reject it.


2014/2015 Legislative Plans               

Over the last few months, we’ve sent lots of mail to voters that talked about my first two years in office, but voters also need to know what to expect in my next term.  There are a wide range of issues that I plan to work on, too many to list here.  But to offer a glimpse of what to expect, here are a few examples:


· Industrial Certifications as SOL alternative for career bound students

· Incentives to reward and attract the best teachers

· Statewide strategy to coordinate Advanced Manufacturing education

· Help a local employer compete for major investment & 200 new jobs

· Address aesthetics issue on Rt. 60 between CW & Busch Gardens

· Continue focus on I-64 expansion and options west of Williamsburg


In addition, I will continue the success of the Business Development Caucus; to help employers succeed and grow in the Commonwealth.
