Congressmsn Perriello’s staff has been contacted to let them know that we would be at his Charlottesville office Friday afternoon to state our concerns about the pending health care legislation. I spoke with his scheduler Jay Tansey about the Congressman’s availability for that afternoon, I was told that there was a good chance that Mr. Perriello might make it to Charlottesville depending on his voting schedule that day. I emailed details to the office this past Monday and am still waiting for a confirmation. With all the grief the Congressman was given over his cap and trade I wonder if he will really show up for our “town hall meeting”. Jay Tansey is new to his staff and when I spoke with him about meeting with the Congressman he may have been unaware of who we were, so I am thinking that after he spoke with Mr. Perriello his Friday schedule may “tightened” up a bit. Whether he is there or not we will show up to make a strong statement advising him to vote against government run health care.
This gathering will be a great warm up for our Health Care Forum that is being held at Lane Auditorium this coming Monday night the 2oth at 7 PM. More detailed information can be found lower down on this page. I look forward to seeing many of you on both Friday and Monday.
