County strikes agreement to replace aging billboards

Noting that the planning commission is scheduled to vote on the new sign ordinance May 21, Matoaca supervisor candidate Kevin Carroll suggested Stariha’s advertisements constitute a conflict of interest.

“To me, it just doesn’t look ethical,” Carroll said during a telephone conversation earlier this month. “The timing is very interesting. If I knew I was getting ready to vote on changes to the sign ordinance that were partially drafted by this company, I wouldn’t have done it.”

With supervisors retiring, county Republicans seek to bridge the experience gap

"Kevin Carroll thinks it’s critical for the local GOP to be proactive, cultivate leaders and have them ready to step forward when senior elected officials leave office."

“Any organization that doesn’t build for the future sets itself up for failure,” he added. “You have to bring new people in. You get new ideas – the more people you have involved, the more brains you get together, the better off you’ll be.”

As county seeks to lure new development and rein in sprawl, political upheaval looms

"The key to making “tough decisions,” Carroll says, is maintaining open lines of communication with county residents.

“As a leader, you have to meet with people and listen to them to find out what they are thinking,” he adds. “When I look at the way things are being handled, I think I can do a better job.”

Scott Miles has a year to reform the county’s criminal justice system. Is Chesterfield ready?

"Not everyone sees these policy shifts as common sense, though; some worry they could lead to a slippery slope and increased crime. Kevin Carroll, president of the county and state Fraternal Order of Police, contends Miles’ new policy directive usurps the authority of the Virginia legislature and attempts to decriminalize marijuana use in Chesterfield. “We don’t live in Colorado, D.C. or Washington state, and using marijuana is still against the law,” he says. “When we start down this road, what’s the next thing we don’t charge on?” Carroll thinks Chesterfield police officers should continue to “do their job and follow the law, regardless of what the commonwealth’s attorney does in court.” “I hope that will be the recommendation [Police Chief Jeffrey Katz] goes with,” he adds."
