6. Our Congressman is absent . . .


I'm in VA-01, reportedly represented by Rob Wittman (R, VA-01), although we never see him in the district. Oh, he does slip in and out of the district when there's a fund raiser or a celebratory dinner, but, he doesn't hold town halls -- except for those useless "telephone town halls."


We have gone to five venues located in population centers around the district and reserved BIG auditoriums during the Easter recess. We have invited him to each of these -- 50 or more people from each location wrote and called his local and DC offices, inviting him to each location -- address, date, time. He has not yet responded.

Then -- we are placing ads and notices in every newspaper that serves the district, announcing these town halls -- date, time, place. Our notices say the town hall will be held whether he attends or not. We have contacted press -- print, tv, radio. One member of the resistance is paying for a couple of life-sized cardboard cutouts of Wittman that will stand in for him if he does not attend.

The young fellow who has declared his candidacy to run against Wittman in 2018 will be at all these events.

THIS IS GONNA BE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Although, the Congressman may not like it.
