Commending the Peninsula
When we go to Richmond each year, we have the chance to bring news about great initiatives happening in our home districts. This session, I was pleased to share the work of the Peninsula Elder Abuse Forensic Center with my colleagues in the General Assembly, resulting in a Commending Resolution. This month I had the privilege of attending a meeting of the Upper Peninsula team, and will be meeting with the Lower Peninsula team in a few weeks. The Center brings together law enforcement, social service, medical professionals, and accountants to combat the issues of financial and other forms of abuse towards our older community members.

Port of Virginia
My friend Senator Scott Surovell and I had the pleasure of touring the Port of Virginia by boat! We were accompanied by the Virginia Maritime Association and the Virginia Pilot Association for our waterside visit to Portsmouth and the Norfolk International Terminal. This year, the General Assembly authorized funding for the Port to be deepened to 55 feet, making a highly competitive port on the eastern seaboard. It's pretty amazing to be able to see our money at work in the Commonwealth!
