Here comes the Guv

Gov. Tim Kaine is bringing his statehouse road show to Floyd next Friday (Nov. 2) complete with Senatorial wannabe Mark Warner, for a visit to the Country Store and a tour of the downtown rehab project (which the state is financing).

The Friday Night Jamboree will interrupt its usual schedule to accommodate the governor's scheduled arrival at 7 p.m. (which will probably be closer to 7:30) and the arrival will, no doubt, be accompanied with the usual pomp and bluster.

No doubt he will throw in a plug for the Democrats running for local offices. The opportunity will be too good to pass up.

  1. The Roanoke Times said that Warner was in Rocky Mount this past week at an event for Eric Ferguson. I imagine next Friday will be more of the same. I guess it is better than former Dukes of Hazzard star who played “Cooter” paying Floyd a visit. He signed autographs at a Ferguson event earlier this year. This rubbed me the wrong way and made me feel that Ferguson looks at Floyd citizens as a bunch of hillbillies. Ferguson’s polling must be showing this to be a tight race.

  2. hi Doug,
    Hope you are well.

    Can you specify which date this will be? I know that many local water quality enthusiasts would like to have a chance to ask Kaine what he plans to do regarding the conservation of critical lands & waters in this region, especially in Appalachian Virginia.

    Kaine has vowed to put a big dent in the resource problems that Virginia is having as a result of having too few buffer zones…and to say that the current real estate market in this area favors the conservation buyer is to make a bit of an understatement.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if the Governor’s party could leave a lasting impression on the area during this visit in the form of newly created parks, beaches, open-air libraries, culturally appropriate museums, and other public spaces which enrich the common good?

    anyway pardon my woolgathering…have a great day.

    -Suzy
