The 400th year of the House of Burgesses has concluded. This has been a busy, but productive session. Several bills that I sponsored or co-sponsored passed and are on their way to the governor to be signed. As always, a couple of my bills did not pass and I’ll try again next year. I will mail or post session highlights from this session soon. Stay tuned.
During the final days of session, the young people, who have served as pages, take over the chamber to present their own resolution. This is their opportunity to give their humorous thoughts on the session. They also thanked everyone who made this opportunity so special.
Last Friday, we were honored with a visit from members of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Love was certainly in the air this Valentines day. Thank you to everyone who sent in beautiful flowers, heartwarming cards, and overall an abundance of love! Hampton is full of sweethearts.
On February 18th, I got a visit from the Girls Scouts of USA. It was great to learn about the leadership opportunities that the organization provides for young ladies in the Hampton Roads area.
I was honored to present A Moment in Black History: "The Negro Motorist Green Book" published by Victor H. Green. This book was the survival guide for black travelers.

Thank you to those who completed the 2019 Survey for the 92nd House district. I am looking forward to reading each of them.
The halls are clear. The lobbyists are gone. Boxes line the halls. It must be time to go home.
Once again, we have completed another successful session. As always it is a pleasure to serve you in the 92nd House District. Thank you.
