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:
· 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.
