Weekly Update
The past week has been very exciting for our team as we rolled out several new offices including our Headquarters on Dale Avenue in Charlottesville, VA.

It was humbling to pack the house in both Danville and Charlottesville with local residents who are excited to get involved in such a pivotal election year. We were also grateful to the many different media outlets who took the time to come by and see the new offices.

Why We Need Tom Garrett in Congress: Op-Ed by Virginia Delegate Michael Webert

"Integrity is a characteristic that defines Senator Tom Garrett and this trait ensures that he would be a principled and independent voice for limited government. How do I know this? In the Virginia General Assembly, when Senator Tommy Norment sought to consolidate power, as both the chair of the Senate Finance Committee and Majority Leader, Senator Tom Garrett stood up to his own party's leadership.
