The Two Chiefs

 

DemBiz is proud to host an interactive evening of politics and policy questions and answers with Mike Harney and Mike Henry, the Chiefs of Staff for Virginia’s two Democratic U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.  DemBiz Vice-Chair Larry Roberts will be the moderator.  

This event will take place on Wednesday, April 26 at the Metro-accessible National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Building, 4301 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington.
