Maybe that is the issue in Richmond, but not in Tidewater


Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, etc. are all essentially counties that absorbed the powers of the cities originally inside of them so they could resist annexation by Norfolk. So Tidewater's issues are that the various counties-in-city-clothing don't get along. It was all about preventing Norfolk from growing any more and dominating the region economically and politically for reasons everyone understood at the time. There is now way too much water under the bridge for Norfolk and the other 'cities' to get along. It was originally about fighting school integration but now any type of regional integration is seen as a threat given Norfolk's ongoing fiscal problems.
