Governor Terry McAuliffe
RICHMOND – Governor McAuliffe today announced that, following a thorough legal review of the case, he will commute the death sentence of Ivan Teleguz to life imprisonment without parole. Teleguz’s request for a pardon will be denied. Teleguz was convicted in the murder-for-hire of Stephanie Yvonne Sipe in July 2001. He was scheduled to be executed on April 25.
Announcing his decision at the Virginia State Capitol today, Governor McAuliffe delivered the following statement (as prepared):
Good afternoon, and thank you for joining us. I am joined today by my Secretary of Public Safety, Brian Moran, and my Counsel, Carlos Hopkins, both of whom have devoted countles
The banner coming soon to Cove and Ranch.
At our meeting Monday, July 9th, we discussed moving the banner that is now on the pavilion to another spot. Good news – John Kahn, the owner of the lots on the corner of Cove and Ranch gave his permission to put the banner there. It will diagonally face towards Peters Creek and be placed at the high point of the lot. Now we just need to get a “man’s man” to figure out the best method to hang it. If this sounds like a “butter up” to get volunteers then I confess.
We are continuing our petition and will bring numbers again to our National Night Out picnic Tuesday, August 7th, 6:30 PM, at the Countryside Pavilion. There will be no regular monthly meeting in August. National Night out on August 7th will serve for informal discussion and information sharing. Look for more information on National Night Out in emails coming soon.
Listen to WFIR on Monday and …KEEP THE FAITH as Rev. Carl Tinsley advised us Monday night after the Virginia Baptist Association banquet. For those who did not attend our meeting Monday evening – the banquet let out the same time we concluded our meeting. We were quite a sight in our yellow SAVE T-Shirts in contrast to the formal attire of the banquet attendees. However, we received almost a full page of enthusiastic signatures including Rev. Tinsley who promptly “demanded” a T-Shirt. Yes, Rev. Tinsley, we will KEEP THE FAITH!
PS: The Planning Commission will vote on the name change Thursday, July 19th. Then a vote by Council members will have to wait until the August 6th, 2:00 PM, Council meeting.
