Fellow Citizens of Portsmouth:
Welcome to the relaunch of PortsmouthCityWatch.org. Intended as a public forum on issues, occurrences, and ideas in our hometown — Portsmouth, VA, USA — back in 2004, the website is emerging from a long period hibernation to resume its role in civic life. Over the final weeks of 2012, we will be getting ready for full engagement with the dawn of the new year, but, in the meantime, we will post some odds and ends of city news, opinions, and, hopefully, thoughtful responses from interested readers. Mayor Holley used to say that the road to success is always under construction; this site will share that attribute.
Please keep your eyes on us as we keep ours on city government.
With best wishes for the holiday season,
