    Put me down as a non attendee

    This “article” should be flagged as a political ad
    Did Plum pay for it ?

    • OneReally

      We know Reston Now is just one of his mouth pieces.

      • Willie Reston

        Are you saying you’d rather RN not publish anything from your district’s representative? But aren’t you always complaining about Plum “doing nothing”? You can’t have it both ways, champ.

        • OneReally

          So champ what is he really doing during this event? Charging a fee to get an update on the state of the commwealth? He can’t publish that in a newsletter? So basically he is fundraising, right?

          I would rather him do something about our:
          broken transportation system
          Out of control tolls
          Illegal immigration
          Welfare abuse
          And bringing our tax dollars back to NOVA

          What do you want “Champ” or is chump?

          • Willie Reston

            Way to completely change the topic and not address my first question at all. Bravo.

          • OneReally

            If he is going to publish political solicitations for free, then the answer is NO!

            I encourage him to publish to his weekly ads and newsletter.

    Another cut-and-paste press release without any critical thinking by Reston Now. This is a campaign fundraiser–plain and simple. If it were a legitimate “State of the Commonwealth” event, then it would be free. But it’s not; it’s a fundraiser for Plum’s 30,000thish reelection campaign. The governor doesn’t charge a fee for his campaign fundraising during the actual state of the Commonwealth speeches and this isn’t a Dem vs Republican vs Modern Whig thing, either. I would have the same reaction regardless.
    So, in short, it’s not “also designed to fundraise . . .”; it IS a fundraiser.

    • 30yearsinreston

      RestonNow should clearly state the ‘article’ is a political solicitation and make Plum pay for it

  • Tom Mccauley

    Oh, oh oh!. Me Ken! Put me down for 3-$1000 tickets.

  • OneReally

    He will be re-elected based on no one running. What is he fundraising for exactly?

    Put me down as a H3LL NO, please.

    • Mike M

      I heard he is a cash cow for the Virginia Dems in general.

    • 30yearsinreston

      To run for Speaker, he will have to boost the other candidates
      He will contribute the funds to them
      They scratch each other’s backs

  • The Constitutionalist

    Required to purchase a ticket:
    “I am a U.S. citizen or lawfully admitted permanent resident (i.e., green card holder).”

    Well that’s not exactly fair, is it? Sounds like discrimination to me.

  • Campaign finance laws aside, lets give Ken a chance to get the job done.
