Senator visits retirement community, precinct


Weeks away from November’s midterm elections, Sen. Tim Kaine (D – Va.) paid a visit to senior citizens at a retirement community and voting precinct in Loudoun County on Monday.

Monday, seniors packed an auditorium at Ashby Ponds in Ashburn to quiz Kaine on topics that included healthcare, the environment, immigration, tax reform, gun violence, diplomatic relations and higher education.

“We enjoy greeting our representatives and taking them to task.” laughed Carl Hemmer, a former member of the Fairfax City Council.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s most recent data, senior citizens make up 15 percent of the commonwealth’s population.
