I am honored and pleased to learn that the Senate Rules Committee of the Virginia General Assembly has reappointed me to the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial Commision

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Commission, a statutory and bipartisan agency of the Virginia General Assembly, was created in 1992 to honor the memory and legacy of Dr. King, and to continue his work through educational, historical and cultural programs, public policy analysis, and public discourse on contemporary issues. For many years, the Commission has been at the forefront in leading the Commonwealth in appropriate activities that are indicative of the depth of Dr. King’s intellect and the breadth of his passion and commitment to democracy, education, history, economic justice and security, fiscal responsibility, public and community service, sound public policy, faith and fundamental values, jobs, housing, public safety, health care, international relations, science and technology, human dignity for all persons, full participatory citizenship, and the marketplace of ideas.

I am excited to continue my work with this important commission and honoring the legacy of Dr. King.
