Thomas Dowell was a candidate for Charlottesville City Council in 1976 who ran a law-and-order-focused candidacy.
Dowell blamed a lack of order on "the college educated professionals who take a soft stand on crime and blame anti-social acts on social conditions and environmental factors, etc," citing the Downtown Mall as a waste of money compared to public safety spending.
