Arlington's 47th District in the House of Delegates is facing a heated Democratic primary race, but candidate Miles Grant (The Green Miles) is also using his campaign to help pass the Employee Free Choice Act. This Saturday at his Campaign HQ, Miles will host grassroots volunteers to meet with an SEIU organizer to discuss and write letters about this legislation to Senator Webb and Senator Warner. We will be writing letters to Senator Webb to cosponsor the Employee Free Choice Act and to Senator Warner to support it. Also these letters will be of the old fashioned variety, pen and paper. I want to encourage all Viriginians to write letters to our sentaors to pass this important act:

Senator Webb
248 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Senator Warner
B40C Dirksen Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Miles Grant believes that progressives have to fight for good legislation at every level of government. It is not enough for a progressive delegate just to vote the right way, he or she must be a vigilant activist. So if you live in Arlington, please join us this Saturday, March 28, 1pm at Miles Campaign HQ, at 4001 N. 5th St. #1, Arlington, VA. After we finish our letters, then we are going to go door to door for Miles's campaign.

I'm very happy to see this

EFCA is extremely important as we absolutely must pass this legislation in order to stand up for workers' rights. It will be a tough battle as big business is putting a lot of pressure on our elected officials -- especially Sen. Mark Warner -- and it's therefore extremely important for Virginians to let our senators know we support making it easier for workers to have union representation.

I'm also very pleased to see that Miles is working a grassroots styled campaign event on this issue as I believe it shows that he's willing to make a strong effort to stand up for progressive values. If he's willing to do this at a relatively early stage in the election, I think he'll be a strong voice in the general assembly.
