Greetings Compatriots

I would like to bring to your attention a public hearing to be held on Wednesday, January 31, at 7:30 AM before the House of Delegates -  Counties, Cities, and Towns Subcommittee #1. At this meeting, the Subcommittee will consider and vote on proposed legislation that would strip existing protections from War Monuments. The vote will be for or against moving these bills forward in the legislative process. We need to do everything possible to stop this legislation here and now. To that end, I have requested all of our members to contact the Delegates on that Subcommittee and respectfully voice their opposition to these particular bills and any others offered for that purpose. I should mention that I just finished calling all of these delegates and was received with courtesy and some enthusiasm.

I am repeating this call to action in this forum to emphasize the critical nature of our response. I also hope that any other citizens who may read these posts will be inspired to action. This will not be the end of this issue and we must remain vigilant.

Additional Information: House of Delegates Counties, Cities, and Towns Subcommittee #1  Second Floor, Room E 200-A, Pocahontas Building, State Capital
