Del. Plum and Sen. Howell to Host Pre-Session Town Hall Tuesday

Ahead of the 2018 Virginia General Assembly, Reston residents will have a chance to discuss important issues with state Del. Ken Plum and Sen. Janet Howell, both Democrats who represent Reston.

The elected representatives will hold their annual pre-legislative session town hall at the Jo Ann Rose Gallery in Reston Community Center at Lake Anne (1609 Washington Plaza) on Tuesday, Dec. 19 from 7:30 – 9 p.m.

Plum, 76, is in his 37th year representing the 36th district in Virginia’s House of Delegates. The retired teacher and school administrator recently told the Richmond Times-Dispatch he is eyeing the top position in the House, posing a challenge to current House Minority Leader David Toscano, a Democrat of Charlottesville.

Howell has been a state senator since 1992, prior to which she was a PTA president, community association president and chair of the State Board of Social Services.

    I would like for Plum and Howell to provide their thoughts how best to secure infrastructure funding for schools and roads from the state, given the grandiose plans to “urban-ify” Reston in the very near future.

    Fairfax County supervisors claim that the county can’t get infrastructure funding from the state until the developers start building. This seems backwards and sub-optimal. Perhaps Plum and Howell can shed some light on how the process works and their plan to ensure adequate funding from the state.

      Plum is to busy vetting statues to respond

        Statues about which he had nothing to say the first 75 years of his life.

        “Besides the BOS is incorrect. That is just a Hudgins excuse”

        I suspect as much too, but it would be nice if we could get some political quotes and advice on the record and further the public debate.

    Thanks to the parallel state nothing gets done around them Parts. Only talk talk talk

    You can voice your concerns to both of them, but its falling on deaf ears.

    Plum and Howell have the I know what’s best gene.

    This was a Democratic circle-jerk of epic proportions. No substance. No actual issues discussed. Plenty of double-speak and pandering. Total waste of time.

    But they’re happy to accept campaign donations from all attendees, so there’s that.
