  Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling made a visit to Culpeper’s Germanna’s
     Daniel Technology Center on Friday November, 19th. He addressed
    regional business and governmental leaders at the invitation of the
  Culpeper, Orange, Madison, and Fauquier Chambers of Commerce. His
  comments were focused on the economic development initiatives at the
state level as the “Official Jobs Creation Officer” for Governor McDonnell.
   “If we work hard, do the right things, and do them wisely then we can
move our economy forward” said Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling several
     times during the luncheon. He also shared the following statistics,
confirming the comment with figures to date since beginning of McDonnell
 Administration: 1) 209 - Projects Announced 2) 13,217 – Jobs Created 3)
$2.2B – Capital Investment in the State of Virginia. The visit was important
 and the timing is very good for Culpeper. We have a great story to tell and
 having the Lieutenant Governor here to talk with our business community
                        was an excellent opportunity.
