Perriello reports on year anniversary in office

Staff Report

On the one-year anniversary of the day he was sworn in as a member of Congress, Tom Perriello released an annual report summarizing the work of his first year in office.

The report includes his legislative accomplishments, a county-by-county summary, a summary of constituent services, a staff directory, and more.

“One year into my term, I am proud of the work we have done to bring serious investment to our area, saving jobs and supporting the local economy during a brutal recession,” Perriello said in a statement.

“I have worked hard to be present in the community, transparent in our funding requests, and focused as much as possible on game-changing investments rather than symbolic expenditures. I would like to thank all of my constituents who have taken the time to voice opinions, share suggestions, and be engaged. I am proud of the work we have done and results we have produced, but I am not nearly satisfied. I look forward now to what we can accomplish together in year two. Thank you for giving me the chance to serve.”
