Gov. McDonnell Town Hall meeting Wednesday evening

[Note: we had mistakenly written Tuesday as the day of the meeting in the title. The meeting is on Wednesday, Aug. 25.]

As we mentioned in an earlier post, Gov. McDonnell will be discussing his plans to solve the transportation crisis by selling ABC stores and drilling for oil off the Virginia shore at a Fairfax town hall meeting tomorrow evening. The meeting is on Wednesday, August 25 from 7:00pm-8:30pm, at the Center for Innovative Technology Auditorium, 2214 Rock Hill Road, Suite 300, Herndon. It's the upside down building at the intersection of the Dulles Toll Rd and Rt 28. Why not show up and give the governor one of your best ideas about getting people out of cars and onto bikes? We plan to ride there; the site is not served by public transit. There is bike parking located in the garage. If you would like to meet up in Herndon beforehand, let us know.

Update: You can see the powerpoint presentation that was  given at previous town hall meetings (pps format). If you have a cost-saving idea (like providing bicycles to state employees for use during the day instead of driving), submit them to the reform.virginia.gov website. See a list of proposed government reform projects.

The Washington Post published an opinion piece on selling liquor stores to pay for transportation projects, Privatizing Virginia liquor stores makes sense, and a good letter to the editor pointing out why it's not likely to work, New liquor taxes won't fly in Virginia.
