Happy New Year!
This is always an exciting time of year – a new calendar and a return trip to Richmond for another year of General Assembly. This year is extra special for me, as my dear friends Senator Ralph Northam and Senator Mark Herring became Lt. Governor Northam and Attorney General Herring. I also was honored to be part of the Senate Escort Committee for the inauguration of our 72nd governor, Terry McAuliffe.
This is also a budget year and after 23 years in the General Assembly, first as a Delegate and now in my 13th year as a senator, the one thing I know for sure is the long session years where we work on a biennial budget are always exciting. With an energetic new governor promising “common ground” and a spirit of bipartisanship, this will be exciting indeed.
Once again, I am carrying several bills to benefit our veterans and military, improve our communities and the lives of those neighbors who are differently abled and moving from training centers to group homes. I am carrying budget amendments for the Special Olympics, Virginia Wounded Warriors Project and Historic Dumfries, Inc, among others.
I will be hosting two town hall meetings this winter: January 25th at the Mount Vernon Government Center from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and February 1st at the Kingstowne Thompson Center from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. I look forward to meeting my constituents at those town halls and giving an update on the legislative session.
As always I am honored to represent the 36th senatorial district of Virginia and look forward to working hard for my constituents. Anyone with an issue or concern should contact my office in Richmond at [email protected] or by phone: 804-698-7536.
