The events are coming so fast and furiously that it’s a challenge to keep up.
Yesterday, I was in Richmond for the Civics Education Commission, then stopped by the Governor’s Energy Conference at the Richmond Convention Center. Lots going on in the energy space, with new products and vendors looking to do business. (I saw a very good presentation on using compressed natural gas for fueling vehicles).
Glad to see that the Governor is converting our state vehicle fleet to natural gas and biodiesel products. That idea was endorsed and legislation filed by our Energy and Environment Commission way back in 2009. Better late than never.
This morning I spoke to the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce with Congressman Gerry Connolly, Delegate David Bulova, Mayor Scott Silverthorne and County Board Chair Sharon Bulova.
Which one of the above promised to keep his (her?) remarks brief, and then spoke for nearly 20 minutes? The answer may surprise you.
Finally, the worst-kept secret in Fairfax is that President Obama will be speaking at George Mason on Friday morning. Details to follow. Naturally, I have a long-scheduled court hearing set for argument at 10 a.m. A man must work.
