During the speeches that he and others gave at the event, we also got a glimpse into how that desire to give back has also lead to him being a more effective legislator during his time in office. Just some of the examples he gave are the fight surrounding the tank farm legislation and some of the friction that has arisen over the years between my alma mater, GMU, and the Fairfax community as the university has continued to expand.
