RELEASE: Delegates Webert and Wiley join Speaker Gilbert to present Commending Resolution to legendary actor Robert Duvall in Fauquier
Warrenton, VA – Delegate Michael Webert was proud to be joined in Fauquier County by Speaker of the House Todd Gilbert and resolution patron Delegate Bill Wiley to present House Joint Resolution 467 (HJR 467), a resolution of Virginia’s House and Senate commending Robert Duvall. The legendary actor is best known for his performances in titles such as Joe Kidd, The Godfather and its first sequel, M*A*S*H*, True Grit, and many more American favorites. Duvall’s acting prowess rarely went unrecognized as he received 12 award nominations with five wins over the years and in 2005 he received the National Medal of Arts.
Film has not been Duvall’s only contribution though, his commitment to the preservation of the Commonwealth has been steadfast through his support of the Wilderness Battlefield, a unit of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Battlefield Park. In 2018 he came to Virginia’s Capitol where he received The Richmonds Medal from Scenic Virginia and Thames Landscape Strategy. When presented with the award, Duvall noted that “Virginia is the last stop before Heaven,” a sentiment that Delegate Webert and his House colleagues that supported HJR 467 could not agree with more.
Such resolutions are introduced and voted upon favorably by Virginia’s House and Senate for significant achievements in or dedication to bettering the Commonwealth. A copy of the full resolution commending Mr. Duvall is available through lis.virginia.gov or by contacting Delegate Webert’s office.
Talking Parents’ Rights and Elections with Hugh Hewitt
Delegate Michael Webert joined Hugh Hewitt to discuss fixing education in Virginia, making government simpler, and returning Virginia’s budget surplus to overburdened taxpayers. You can watch the full interview below:
Elections are always important, but this year they could have serious consequences. Our Republican majority in the House of Delegates accompanied by Governor Youngkin in office is not enough with an increasingly radical Democrat held Senate.
This November, it is on us as Virginians to hold the House and take back the Virginia Senate. We sent Governor Youngkin to Richmond with the knowledge that Republicans would put parents first, make our communities safe again, and get government out of the way of families and small businesses. All of these things we can do, but not with the woke mob that’s taken over the Senate.
Year after year, Republicans get beat out in elections in early voting and voting by mail. There is no reason for us to get beat out in these methods of voting, especially when people risk something coming up on Election Day that could prevent them from voting altogether. Whether you agree with it or not, our long early voting period and on-demand mail in voting are the rules that the Northam administration left us with and there is no hope in Republicans fighting with one hand tied behind our back.
When Republicans vote, regardless of if it is by mail, early, or in-person on Election Day, we win. Make your plan to vote and have a backup plan- don’t let life get in the way of making your voice heard in November’s elections! You can vote early or join the permanent absentee voting (vote by mail) list to have a ballot mailed to you before Election Day.
