Dear Prince William friends, families, and neighbors,
Happy Friday and thanks to all of you who either called, emailed, or visited us this week! Spending time with PWC friends, families, and neighbors makes this a rewarding job.
VOTER ID REQUIREMENTS: As I indicated in my last update, I or someone on our team will personally drive people with physical limitations to DMV or the Office of the PWC Registrar of Voters to ensure that all have the correct ID and an unfettered opportunity to vote for their candidate(s), issue(s), and party of choice. DMV charges $10 for an ID, but the PWC Registrar of Voters provides IDs free of charge. The new requirement is that all voters must present a current photo ID or one that expired within the past year. Click here to see acceptable forms of ID.
PWC CITIZEN POLICE ACADEMY: Earlier this week, I rode with PWC Police Chief Steve Hudson and his outstanding officers to neighborhoods across the 51st House District during the 2014 National Night Out. I spent quality time with parents, kids, and families who respect and support those who serve in law enforcement. In that spirit, I invite you to enroll in the PWC Citizen Police Academy to gain greater awareness and appreciation for the PWC Police Department. This 10-week program meets Mondays from 6-9:30pm and includes classroom and hands-on activity. To apply, complete the Citizen Police Academy Application Form and the PWCPD will take it from there. Thanks to the men and women who wear the PWC Police uniform and are sworn to serve and protect the rest of us!
PWC AREA AGENCY ON AGING: In my work with seniors in our community, I recently learned about two programs. One is the VETS (Veterans Enhanced Transportation Service) Program and the other is the Seniors Financial Exploitation Awareness Program. See more about VETS here and Seniors Exploitation here.
HIGHWAY AND ROAD INFO FOR THE COMING WEEK: VDOT informs us that detours are planned at the interchange between the I-95 HOV Lanes and Franconia-Springfield Parkway, starting today and lasting for four weeks. Click here for details and a map. Other HOV closures will take place this weekend. For details, go to www.VaMegaProjects.com. Yes, these closures and detours are frustrating (I navigate I-95 several times a day), but we’re well on the way to completing the most disruptive projects in late December or early January.
