Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) will take his message on the road next month, with eight town hall meetings across the Commonwealth between now and Aug. 31.
The governor’s office announced the tour Thursday. They’re calling the meetings “Virginia Speaks: A Conversation About Jobs, Government Reform and Our Future.”
Among other things, the series will be an opportunity for McDonnell to pitch his controversial plan to privatize the state’s liquor stores directly to voters.
The schedule is after the jump. The closest town halls to Charlottesville are events in Harrisonburg and Fredericksburg.
