There is real opportunity for business ..., 13 Jan 2014 [cached]
There is real opportunity for business to tap into this market," says Carson Tucker, vice chairman of the Powhatan County Board of Supervisors.
Tucker says he presented information about the age wave to the Powhatan Chamber of Commerce, pointing out some relatively simple steps businesses can take to turn seniors into loyal customers, including the provision of adequate seating or offering a drink of water during hot days â€" touches that seniors will appreciate.
With seniors comprising a growing proportion of Powhatan's overall population, it makes sense for businesses to take notice, Tucker says.

Supervisor Carson Tucker, an outspoken advocate for civility in politics and government, certainly doesn't practice it himself. n his September 16commentary in Powhatan Today, he devotes five full paragraphs to an attack on the motives and character of those citizens who have questioned the decision of the Board of Supervisors to defer the decision on the WalMart rezoning application.
Mr. Tucker is not a student of history or he would lecture citizens of the County that they should not complain about the Board's actions or inaction, but must only bring forward constructive recommendations.
When Mr. Tucker finally gets around to addressing the concerns of opposing citizens, he argues that it would have been a mistake to vote on the WalMart application this summer because more time and study were needed. his stands in sharp contrast to the position he took on the first major rezoning he faced as a supervisor. t that time, he urged hasty approval, perceiving no need for a traffic impact study or the careful review contemplated by the County's Comprehensive Plan. o put it charitably, his record on dealing with rezoning applications as a supervisor and previously as a member of the Planning Commission is one of inconsistency.
The deeper concern is that Mr. Tucker and the rest of the Board have put the County in a poor position by failing to anticipate issues raised by rezoning requests such as the WalMart application.
r. Tucker and his colleagues on the Board have a responsibility to make tough policy choices, develop broad rules and standards to implement its policies and apply those policies, rules and standards evenly. hey are not meeting that responsibility by reacting to individual rezoning applications and in effect making policy on a case-by-case basisi.
It's time for Mr. Tucker to stop hectoring citizens and provide some leadership on the Board on growth and development.
Senator John Watkins stated that FY2011 will be hard, but FY 2012 will be worse and that was acknowledged by Mr. Tucker in his prepared statement.
That will mean a lower actual real estate tax bill next year for most county homeowners than the one they received this year, said District 5 Supervisor Carson Tucker.
Tucker showed examples of four properties in varying price brackets and noted that in three out of the four cases, taxes owed under the new rate would go down.
For example, Supervisor Carson Tucker said, a home valued at $139,200 last year is now valued at $123,700. Even with the higher tax rate, the owner will pay $35.83 less in taxes, he said.
Tucker said the board hopes the extra funds will prevent the 1 percent pay cuts teachers and staff were facing.
"We implore the school board to use this $872,000 to eliminate the need for these school board proposed salary reductions," he said, adding that supervisors recognize the school board makes the final decision where the money goes.
Tucker said he would be taking a 25 percent supervisor's pay cut for the 2011 budget cycle.
