State Senator Mamie Locke, of Hampton and Newport News, is a Democrat and is no longer Chair of General Laws and Technology.
“There's a lot of issues I, as a Chair, can make in determining what comes before the committee. The issues may not get addressed in the same way," Locke explained.
that's right, they're not going to get addressed in the same way. too bad.
Then there's Senator Louise Lucas, of Portsmouth, who is also a Democrat. Lucas no longer heads the Local Governments Committee. She was also set to become Chair of Education and Health.
“I'm just a little disappointed it's not going to happen now. I've been in the majority and the minority and I'm in the minority again," Lucas said.
and so, the world turns. one day you've got the power, the next, you don't. deal with it.
Lastly, Democratic Senator Yvonne Miller, of Norfolk, is no longer Chair of the Transportation Committee.
“I think the Commonwealth is now reverting to the inglorious past. The past when whites dominated everything, and minorities were excluded," Miller exclaimed.
going to play the race card? really??? whatever.
