The Shutdown In Virginia

VA Delegate Michael Webert has yet to say a word about the Government Shutdown and it’s impact on District #18. Silence, deafening silence.

How can we interpret this behavior? Webert’s Shutdown Silence means he is fully behind Trump’s “let them eat cake” philosophy of running the government and he has no care for his community or constituents, no ability to empathize and help. We deserve better than this.

As of today, listed below are all the resources I could find in District 18 for furloughed employees. If you know of any more please leave them in the comments. THANK YOU to all our local businesses stepping up to help.
