Friday afternoon at the convention center there was a Ceremony to mark Virginia Beach's designation as the first green destination in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Speakers were Governor Tim Kaine, Mayor Meyera Oberndorf, and Delegate Joe Bouchard.
The 20 minute ceremony focused on the Presentation of a plaque to the City with HJ 6078, Delegate Bouchard's Resolution from the Transportation Special Session. http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?083+sum+HJ6078
Virginia Beach has now opened a portal to try to draw eco-friendly tourists http://www.virginiabeachgreen.com/
A couple interesting sidebars today. One was that when someone came in wearing a Sessoms for Mayor t-shirt, there was a highly negative reaction in the rear of the room. That was from Resort Area business people, whose businesses Sessoms directed tens of millions of dollars to as Vice Mayor.
The other sidebar? Come back late Monday evening, as it should be ready to go by then.
