Mount Vernon, Va.-- Delegate Paul Krizek (D-Mt Vernon) announced a deal today to establish Sherwood Hall Library as a regular Mobile DMV location. Every third Monday of the month, Sherwood Hall Library will alternate hosting a DMV office inside the building and mobile van.
This Friday we take time to honor our veterans and their families. After World War I came to a close on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, November 11th became an important day of observance. It was first called “Armistice Day” to commemorate the signing of the Armistice with Germany ending the war. It was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.
Mount Vernon-Lee Chamber of Commerce and Inova Mount Vernon Hospital partnered to co-sponsor Community Day and the hospital’s 40th anniversary celebration on Saturday, Sept. 24.
This is the fourth year the chamber sponsored a Community Day to recognize and celebrate local businesses, non-profits and Mount Vernon and Lee residents. Since Mount Vernon Hospital was planning to celebrate its 40th anniversary, the chamber decided to join celebrating Community Day simultaneously with Mount Vernon hospital.
The Internet is a tremendous catalyst for economic growth and provides for easy access to information. It is already an essential tool that we would find impossible to live without. As we become more dependent upon this interconnectivity, we are increasingly more vulnerable. Virginia’s leaders on both sides of the aisle recognize the critical importance of a strong cybersecurity policy.

These tragedies occur faster than I can write about them. As a father of a teenage daughter, I planned to write about the importance of teaching our children that no means no, because one-in-five women will be sexually assaulted in her life. That figure is likely underreported due to the stigma we still attach to victims of sexual assault, rather than attach a stigma to the men who commit sexual assault.
Del. Paul Krizek (D-44) recently visited the Department of Motor Vehicles’ Lorton Customer Service Center to learn more about the agency’s operations and spend time with constituents. Joined by DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb, Krizek greeted employees at the office located in the Gunston Plaza Shopping Center.
This week, I want to take a break from writing about policy and make a short important announcement regarding a dire need in the Mount Vernon-Lee area. United Community Ministries (UCM), which operates a food pantry for residents in need, is having trouble filling its shelves due to overwhelming demand. The good news is that there are many ways we can help to meet this demand.
Sunday, May 1 is May Day, where we recognize the accomplishments of organized labor. On this day the precursor to the AFL-CIO proclaimed, “Eight hours shall constitute a legal day’s labor from and after May 1, 1886.”
While an eight-hour workday is typical for many people today, before the 1880s, it was common to work 10 to 16 hours a day in unsafe conditions. In retaliation, the Pinkerton Agency and business owners erupted in violent protest, slaughtering many workers in Chicago in what we know as the Haymarket Affair.
