GUEST OPINION

COME IN THREES

Three issues have been causing turmoil for a year: unemployment, schools, and vaccines. Governor Northam closed down the state with power not seen since Colonial times, successfully driving folks into frenzies often asking for our help.

UNEMPLOYMENT

Closing businesses and schools has done damage to small local businesses, and some will never recover. Forced closures left many businesses with no choice but to lay-off employees.

As the ranks of unemployed overwhelmed the system, there was no back-up plan to help families. When folks couldn’t get help from the Virginia Employment Commission, many called legislators. Each of us tried to help but usually to no avail. Occasionally, we had success but usually we received no more information.
