Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Delegate in Hospital

As of yesterday I was told Delegate Harry Parrish of Manassas was in the hospital with pnemonia and is not doing very well. He will probably not be there to vote on any budget agreements unless they come much later. He was in the hospital eariler in the session and came back, so maybe he will get better again.
Our prayers go out to him and his family.

UPDATE: Del. Harry Parrish passed away this afternoon. Our prayers go out to the family.
The R-T-D has this article on his life.
He was a VT grad, a decorated Air Force pilot in WWII, and served in government for a total of 53 years (12 years on Manassas city council, 18 as mayor of Manassas and 25 in the House of Delegates).

    I hit the send button too soon. May Del. Parrish rest in peace. It would be respectful if discussion on a successor is put on hold until he is laid to rest. Thank you.
