Here is the press release from Perriello's office.
December 20, 2008—Ivy, VA—Congressman-elect Tom Perriello today announced more members of his transition advisory committee, local leaders who will advise Perriello as he transitions into his new role in representing the fifth district of Virginia. The committee members have held numerous meetings with the Congressman-elect over the past few weeks, and on Thursday, the entire group met for the first time on a district-wide conference call.
"Through working with this diverse group of local leaders, and on my recent listening tour in which I covered 3,000 miles and had over 70 meetings, I am preparing to fight for the Fifth District's needs in Washington as soon as I'm sworn into office," said Congressman-elect Perriello. "Clearly, getting our economy back on track will be my number one priority, specifically in the areas of infrastructure and workforce development. With the scope of challenges facing our district, I need to be ready to hit the ground running from day one, and I feel confident with the help of this advisory committee that I will be ready."
