Town Hall Meeting this Saturday
It's been a week since the Virginia General Assembly adjourned its regular session on March 10.
Although we left Richmond, we are still in a "special session" to complete the biennial budget and to approve several judges whose terms will expire.
I will not need to be back at the State Capitol until there is a deal between the House of Delegates and the Senate budget-writers, which could be anytime between now and June 30.
The legislature does need to reconvene on Wednesday, April 18, to act on any amendments or vetoes sent down by the Governor. I am hopeful that the budget could be ready by then so that we can complete the work of this year's session at that time.
In the meantime, I wanted to provide an opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about some of the bills that passed the legislature this year and to ask any questions about state laws and policies.
Please join me at my first post-session public town hall meeting this Saturday, March 24, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., at the Vienna Town Hall Chambers located at 127 Center St., South, Vienna, VA 22180.
This meeting is open to any member of the public and the press. If you are a constituent, this is also your chance to bring any concerns or problems you may be facing with our government.
No RSVP is necessary to attend, but please let my assistant Julia Kim know if you can join us, to help us prepare for the meeting. Julia is at (703) 350-3911 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest in my work as your Delegate, and please feel free to share this information with your neighbors and members of any local organizations with which you may belong.
I hope to see you on Saturday!
During this legislative session, a group of Oakton High School athletes, including the girls swim and dive state champions, visited the Capitol to meet with Delegate Mark Keam.
