Just a reminder that there will be a number of town hall meetings next week here in Virginia about the discussion surrounding health care reform. Here's a list of some of them:
Monday August 24, 2009: AFSCME National RV Tour Stop and Rally--Charlottesville VA Downtown Mall: 12-2pm. Please come out and show your support!!

Tuesday August 25, 2009: Rep Jim Moran and Dr. Howard Dean Town Hall Meeting 7-9pm--South Lakes High School, Auditorium,11400 South Lakes Dr., Reston, Virginia: Doors open at 6pm--PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY!!

Thursday August 27, 2009: Rep Tom Perriello Town Hall in Albemarle County 6-8pm--Victory Hall, 401 Valley Street, Scottsville

Saturday August 29, 2009: Front Royal/Warren County Community Conversation on Health Care--1pm--Front Royal Public Library
I will definitely be at the one in Reston on Tuesday with Jim Moran and Howard Dean and will likely make it down to Front Royal on Saturday as well. I'm not to sure if I'll be able to make it to the one in Albemarle, however, as there are several other events going on that evening. I certainly hope that people in Perriello's district make it to that event and express their support for a public option though. I also won't be able to make it down to Charlotessville tomorrow as I have a meeting with some folks in downtown DC at the same time that the event is going to be held. If you do plan on going to one of these events, email me at leftofthehill@gmail.com (or leave a comment in the comment section) and let me know (and perhaps even give me an update afterwards if I can't make it).

  1. Just make sure you live in Moran's district (excerpt from TheHill.com):

    Attendance is being restricted to residents of Moran's Northern Virginia congressional district, which encompasses the City of Alexandria, Arlington County, Falls Church and parts of Fairfax County including Reston and Tysons Corner. Attendees will be asked to sign in and give their address and email address. Those not from the district will be turned away from the auditorium.
