Manassas Park City Councilmember Vonna Privett resigned on Monday, a result of the conviction for child pornography of a family friend who had been staying with Ms. Privett at the time. A replacement will be appointed to fill the seat, and a special election for this seat is expected in November 2007. The Manassas Journal-Messenger has the story here.
There is so much to lament about this incident, and I wish Ms. Privett did not feel compelled to end her record of public service because of this. The predators that lurk within our society cause far too much damage to too many good people, but at least this one was caught and will serve time for his crimes.
