Rep. Perriello has decided to open a fourth district office in Martinsville today, the first congressional office located in the city during "modern times." Current Vice-Mayor Kimble Reynolds will be his Martinsville/Southside area representative. Given the large economic problems in the Martinsville community this a good choice, and Reynolds' knowledge of the community is a huge asset. Jim White likes the moves also.
Perriello will be the featured guest speaker this year during the Independence Day celebration at Monticello, naturally on July 4th. Pres. Bush was given that honor last year.
The National Catholic Reporter has a great article on Tom highlighting his previous Catholic activism. (h/t @robertpjones)
