So this post is, of training course, to thank him profusely for sending me that, as perfectly as for his ongoing support of Blue Virginia! The stage of this write-up is also to tout Richmond-based mostly Gibson Print, which describes by itself as “Union printers and industry experts in marketing and advertising, layout and media” whose intention is to “help Democrats and progressives get elected.”
As you can see from the adhering to photographs, Gibson Print does fantastic perform – and it’s all union built AND with the recycling symbol on nearly all of it. So it’s not astonishing that Pete et al have assisted a good deal of Democrats and progressives get elected – their “Wall of Fame” lists, between some others: Kenny Boddye (now a Prince William County Supervisor) Joshua Cole (now a Virginia Delegate) Laura Jane Cohen (now a member of the Fairfax County Faculty Board) Danica Roem (now a two-phrase Virginia delegate and all-around superstar) Jeremy McPike (now in his second phrase in the Virginia Condition Senate) James Walkinshaw (now on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors) Steve Descano (now the Fairfax Commonwealth’s Lawyer) Sally Hudson (now in the Virginia House of Delegates) Katie Cristol (now in her second phrase on the Arlington County Board) Hala Ayala (now in her next term in the Residence of Delegates and a applicant for Lt.
