The New York Times peeps our recent Mayor/City Council/School Board issues in Famous Mayor Under Fire in Virginia, and, apparently unable to find a Wilder supporter in office, quotes the Mayor’s 7th District Roundtable representative (and former 7th District School Board Representative) Reggie Malone backing the mayor.
From the article:
“The school board is playing the victim when in fact they’re not,” said Reginald Malone, who retired from the board in 2004 to run for City Council. Mr. Wilder supported Mr. Malone in his unsuccessful run.
“Mr. Wilder gave them plenty of time to move,” Mr. Malone said. “Instead, they went behind his back to City Council for help. The mayor got two-timed. If this had been 10 or 20 years ago, nobody would’ve been able to do Mr. Wilder this way. I support him fervently, whether he’s right or wrong.”
