The link above is the official court document showing Sentara alleging that Chesapeake City Council has unfairly voted in favor of Chesapeake Regional.
Sentara is claiming that the denial of their recent application was “arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable, and therefore, invalid.” Sentara is asking the Court to “declare that the zoning amendment requiring a conditional use permit to operate a ‘medical care facility’ ” be voided and declare that Chesapeake City Council approve the application.
The rumors of the corrupt and preferential treatment of our local government for Chesapeake Regional have been circulating for years. It appears that thanks to Sentara, the corruption is finally being exposed. No entity in Chesapeake should receive preferential treatment over another.
The question remains, how does council benefit from blocking Sentara? Why would they generate a “nonsensical” basis to deny a perfect acceptable women’s imaging facility?
Whatever the answer, it justifies in the mind of council that health care options in Chesapeake should be limited, and not all applicants get a fair opportunity. What other areas could this corruption have seeped in to?
We deserve better leadership. Politicians making binding votes for their own personal gain is dirty, corrupt, and needs to be removed from office.
