Sen. John Warner and Congs. Jim Moran and Tom Davis will hold a Town Hall Meeting today at the Arlington Campus to discuss the impact of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) recommendations for Northern Virginia. The meeting will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the School of Law Atrium.
The recommendations released last month include the dislocation of nearly 23,000 employees from leased office space in Northern Virginia and the infusion of 18,000 employees to Ft. Belvoir.
Moran is leading the charge with area delegation members to protect the region’s economic, workforce, and transportation interests.
Joe R. Reeder, former under secretary of the Army and currently cochair of the Virginia Commission on Military Bases, will be the featured guest speaker. Arlington County Board Chairman Jay Fisette and other Arlington officials will also attend.
