Sounds like Randall picks people just like Obama for important posts; based on friends and paybacks instead of competency.

I say to you, Poppycock! Randall Reid-Smith is a true blue phony and his staff was not chosen to be experts of any kind.

Controversy hit in 2011 after several West Virginia Sesquicentennial of the Civil War Commission's members resigned, including commission vice-chairman Mark Snell, a professor at Shepherd University.

Snell’s resignation was followed by Shelia Coleman-Castells, president of Sangha Consulting Inc.;

West Virginia University lecturer Connie Rice;

Beth White of Dunbar, president of the Kanawha Valley Civil War Roundtable.

According to published reports, the resigning committee members complained that too many grants were going for parades, pageants, and reenactments instead of educational events focused on events leading to the creation of West Virginia.

I see the schedule of events.

When is the Tar and Feathering Re-enactment?

"commissioner" Randall Reid-Smith's Tar and Feathering is going to be the highlight of West Virginia's first 150 years.
