Introduction to the Blogosphere

I suppose there is no time like the present to introduce myself to the blogosphere.

My name is Jeff Price, and I'm running for the 24th District seat in the House of Delegates. This district encompasses the majority of Amherst County, all of Rockbridge County, four precincts in Southern Augusta County, and the cities of Buena Vista and Lexington.

We are living in serious times and it is going to take people dedicated to rolling up their sleeves and making some tough decisions on how Virginia moves forward. This is what I hope to bring to the table.

I'm not a politician. I work in our small family business, Virginia Lime Works, which has become a leader in the fields of historic preservation and ecologically friendly building construction. We have a reputation worldwide for advocating the promotion of working class craftspeople and the continued education and sustainability of traditional trades. I have walked down the streets with homeowners whose lives where forever changed when an EF-5 tornado struck Greensburg Kansas. I have sat with 3rd generation New Orleans plasterers whose homes were destroyed by Katrina and dreams were shattered by the ineptitude of the government in the aftermath. I have had dinner in the South of France with an older French couple who came to tears describing their joy when their liberty was restored by American Servicemen in 1945. But at the end of the day, I'm just a working guy whose father is a bricklayer and grew up on the family farm. For over 150 years my family has been involved in the history and rural heritage of Amherst County. My wife teaches elementary special education for Amherst County Public Schools and we have two children, Olivia & Jackson.
