Supervisor Benjamin Pitts confirms no attendance for bloggers forum
At least one of the bloggers on tonight’s forum for the Spotsylvania supervisor candidates is unhappy with Supervisor Benjamin Pitts’ decision to exit the forum because of a "prior engagement."
In an e-mail today, Eric Martin, a Republican who operates a local blog on political issues, blasted Pitts for making his decision to opt out so late in the process.Martin is on the panel, along with Fredericksburg City Councilman Matt Kelly.
"He could have said no from the start, and had one other said the same, we would have cancelled it altogether!"
Pitts did not elaborate on what the prior engangement is, but he did say he could not get out of it. What does this mean for Chris Yakabouski, his opponent?
