Week 6 – Reporting from Richmond!

posted February 20th, 2015

Dear Friends & Neighbors,

Best regards from Richmond! We have now finished the sixth week of the 2015 General Assembly Session. The time spent in committees is getting shorter, but each day’s floor session is getting longer! This year’s session is scheduled to end on February 28th.

Monday was Presidents Day, and a holiday for many. But here at the General Assembly, we pressed on with our usual full schedule. Even though we worked, we did take note of the importance of the day. Virginia is the mother of presidents, with eight United States presidents having been born in the Commonwealth, starting with George Washington!

On Tuesday, Richmond was covered under at least six inches of snow. But even though the Executive branch was closed, as well as many schools and local governments, the House and Senate continued to move forward with the people’s business. Tuesday was the deadline for all finance and revenue bills to be attended to, which created a long floor session as the House and Senate sent messages back and forth to each other, ironing out the details. We managed to finish this important work before the deadline. …

Here are a few resources for your records:

  • Call 9-1-1 in a true emergency
  • For current road conditions: call 5-1-1 or visit 511Virginia.org
  • Report road problems: 1-800-FOR-ROADS (367-7623)
  • For statewide info: www.VAemergency.gov
  • 2-1-1 Virginia is serving as the public inquiry number for Virginia residents
  • #77 on a cell phone to report a traffic crash or traffic emergency
  • Loudoun County Sheriff non-emergency number: 703-777-1021
  • Prince William County Police non-emergency number: 703-792-6500
  • Loudoun Water: 571-291-7878

  • NOVEC: 1-888-335-0500
  • PEPCO: 1-877-PEPCO-62 (737-2662)

Some Safety Tips:

  • Visit www.ReadyVirginia.gov.
  • Use flashlights for emergency lighting instead of candles.
  • Unplug electrical equipment until a steady power supply returns.
  • Practice proper generator and surface heater safety.
  • Leave one light turned on so you know when power is restored.
  • Eliminate unnecessary travel, especially by car. Traffic signals will stop working during an outage, creating traffic congestion. If you come upon a non-working traffic signal, treat each traffic light as a four-way stop, with the driver on the right having the right-of-way. Proceed with caution only when traffic permits and enter intersections only when it is safe to do so, using your turn signals to let other motorists know your intentions.
  • If traffic lights are on flash, treat a flashing red as a stop (treat it like a stop sign). For flashing yellow, proceed with caution.

As always, you can stay up to date by checking out my Facebook (www.Facebook.com/DelegateDavidRamadan) and on Twitter (www.Twitter.com/DavidIRamadan).

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of service to you. My staff and I can be reached via email: info@DavidRamadan.com.

87th District Day in Richmond –You Are Invited!!!

 On President’s Day, this Monday February 16th, I will be hosting an 87th District Day in Richmond at the General Assembly Building (GAB) for the citizens of our District. Please bring your families, friends, and neighbors to visit Mr. Jefferson’s Capitol; the seat of our Virginia Government is full of history for you to experience.

 In addition to the FREE morning reception (9:30am-11:30am in room 7West of the GAB), I have arranged a special tour of the Capitol for you starting at noon.

Everyone is invited to sit in on the House proceedings as legislation is discussed and voted on.

 This is a great opportunity to bring the children (who will be out of school that day) to experience your state government in action!

 As an added bonus that day, Pastor Charlie Whitlow of Community Church in Ashburn will be giving the Invocation for the House of Delegates!

 If you would like to attend, or get more information, please RSVP online. Or contact Katrina Foard in my office at Katrina@DavidRamadan.com.
