Weekly Update October 7 2022

Yesterday, Delegate Jackie Glass (VA-89) and I hosted the 10th Women Veterans Roundtable here in McLean, joined by Delegate Vivian Watts (VA-39) and Delegate Danica Roem (VA-13). We had a great turn out and I really appreciated the opportunity to hear directly from our women veterans about their specific needs and concerns. Thank you to all of the incredible women veterans who attended the event. It was so great to meet you! I look forward to organizing another roundtable in the future.
