Congressman Perriello opens the Martinsville office

There's a great post over at What IS Right for Virginia regarding a cool event that happened yesterday afternoon: Congressman Tom Perriello has officially opened his Martinsville district office. Appropriately enough, his congressional office is in the same building where so many volunteers spent so many hours working to get him elected--while being told at every turn that he couldn't win.

The cool thing about this office is its location; it's in the heart of Martinsville's re-emerging Uptown district in a street-level space that had been sitting empty for years. Let's hope some more of the old storefronts start filling up again soon, and this time for good!
