Now the group, led by Jefferson Area Tea Party chair Bill Hay and Keith Drake of the Albemarle Truth in Taxation Alliance, will bring their petition, signed on April 15, to Congressman Tom Perriello. They plan to visit his office at 4pm on Friday following speeches at the Free Speech Monument. Among their grievances: "burgeoning spending, corporate and bank bailouts, as well as nationalization of healthcare."I think it classy that Rep. Perriello is meeting face-to-face with his staunchest critics to discuss their concerns.
