Dear Prince William friends, families, and neighbors,
I’m in Richmond today for my monthly meeting of the Virginia State Crime Commission and want to update you before I drive home to Prince William County.
ELECTIONS & ID CARDS: Starting with the Nov. 4 election, we must all use a government-issued ID card to vote (click here for a listing of approved IDs). If you or a member of your family are mobility challenged and don’t have an approved ID, please call or email me and it will be a privilege to personally drive you to and from the PWC Office of Elections for an easy 10-minute visit to obtain a free voter ID card. I want ALL of our neighbors to vote for their party, issues, and candidates of choice in this election. Click here to see my video explanation.
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT: On the Nov. 4 ballot, you’ll see a constitutional amendment that permits localities, if they desire, to give property tax relief to surviving spouses of military members who are “Killed in Action” (KIA) and who continue to occupy their homes and haven’t remarried. Click here for a full explanation.
PWC CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION TRAINING: During the 2015 session of the General Assembly, I will carry a bill to better regulate unlicensed daycare in homes that have resulted in 60 child deaths over the last 10 years. I urge you to attend one of these child abuse training classes in PWC:
- East PWC: Nov. 1 (9:30-noon) or Nov. 6 (6:30-8pm), both at Minnieland Corporate Center
- West PWC: Dec. 8 (7-9pm) or Dec. 13 (9:30-noon), both at Minnieland Wellington, 10249 Hendley Road, Manassas, VA
FUTURE DELEGATE PROGRAM: Each January and February, I host a different PWC student at the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond for an entire day as part of our regular legislative session. It’s for students in grades 7-12, and each “Future Delegate” and his/her family spend the whole day with me at my committee meetings, House floor sessions, press conferences, and meetings with the Governor and other senior officials. We’ll soon schedule a public meeting at which I’ll brief families on the program, answer questions, and hand out applications. More to come!
I-95 EXPRESS LANES: VDOT has announced the early opening of the new I-95 Express Lanes and the end of never-ending construction on these arteries. Several months ago, I purchased an EZ-Pass Flex and have found it to be effortless on the I-495 Express Lanes. There will surely be growing pains, so please click here to stay up to date on the I-95 Express Lanes.
