Last minute Changes in Thursday Capitol Rally

Due to the anticipation of a very large crowd, the location has been moved to the WEST steps of the Capitol. The best metro stop is still Capitol South. To give you an idea of the scale, 26 bus loads of people are coming from New Jersey alone.

As a result of the large crowds, they strongly encouraged people to plan on arriving early to find parking and get to the Capitol.

Remember to be respectful, professional, but firm on where you stand on health care.

Other details remain the same:

Gerry Connolly constituents, Mychelle Brickner, former Fairfax County School Board Member, will be leading the 11th District Delegation and will have a “Connolly” sign in the vicinity of the “Virginia” sign above. Bring a bring a letter or letters telling your Congressman to vote no on the Health Care Bill regardless of amendments. This bad bill cannot be repaired. If you cannot make it to DC for whatever reason, on Thursday drop a letter off at his Annandale office located at 4115 Annandale Rd # 103, Annandale, VA. In either case, make sure that the staff member notes that you came in opposition to the Health Care Bill.

· The Virginia Delegation will meet at 11:30am on the West steps of the Capitol. Look for the "Virginia" sign. The sign is a VERTICAL "political convention style" sign, it is just like what they use at conventions and has three sides so it can be seen from all sides. Marshall Smith will be holding the sign.

· Michelle Bachman will give her speech at noon on the Capitol Steps.

· Afterward, we can go visit our senators first, and then our representatives (for those who refused to meet with us behind Longworth Bldg)

· Tricia Stall has arranged for us to hopefully meet with some of our Virginia Congressman. Congressman Whitman is confirmed at 2:30 to meet with us all outside behind Longworth building, since we all wouldn't fit in his office. Behind Longworth there is a park at the corner of New Jersey St. and C Street. The park can be reached by walking down S. Capital St. or New Jersey Street. It is a grassy area with a fountain and benches and suitable for a large gathering. We will meet there at 2:30. We will wait to see who else meets with us during that time. She has invited other Representatives and Senators.
