Surprising nobody, Charlottesville City Council appointed Rev. Alvin Edwards and re-appointed Peggy Van Yahres to the school board on Thursday evening. The wildcard didn’t go to Karen Waters as some (myself included) assumed, but instead to the Legal Aid Justice Center‘s Louis Bogard. The appointments come after two nights of public interviews of the 13 candidates. The big task facing the new members will be finding a replacement for banished superintendent Scottie Griffin. This may be a particularly tricky task for the good Reverend, since he liked Scottie Griffin just fine.
Venton Blandin has the story for WCAV. They probably have some nice video, too, but WCAV requires Windows to view their video. For a station with, like, 12 viewers, they could double their ratings by letting us Mac users watch.
