Honoring Veterans

Thank a Vet, Today and Everyday.  Several organizations  joined forces in Tappahannock this morning to Honor Those Who Served.  This was such an amazing, heart felt experience.  Every detail was humbing, from the patriotic songs “The Star Spangled Banner” and “America the Beautiful”, Recognition of all veterans in attendance, The Color Guard, Placement of Wreaths, Taps, and the Guest of Honor and Speaker, Colonel Scott Croxton to the prayer, poem, hand shakes, enmbraces and salutes.  We as Americans enjoy so many freedoms but as Colonel Croxton stated, without the Veterans we would not be so blessed.  Please take time...

Virginia’s Forward Progress on Transportation

Yesterday, Governor Terry McAuliffe announced that, thanks to recent reforms and a change in the Commonwealth’s approach to public-private partnerships (P3’s), Virginia will save $2.5 billion on the Transform I-66 Outside the Beltway project over initial financial estimates. That victory for taxpayers and commuters is just the latest example of the sea change that Governor McAuliffe and his transportation team have brought to how Virginia selects, finances and executes transportation projects.
