Virginia legislators form “Redskins Pride Caucus”

FAIRFAX, Va.– Today, State Senator Chap Petersen (D-Fairfax City), Delegate Jackson Miller (R-Manassas) and Delegate David Ramadan (R-Loudoun) announced the formation of the “Redskins Pride Caucus,” a bipartisan group of Virginia state legislators representing professional football fans in the Commonwealth.

The RPC also announced its founding principles which are —

#1-  Providing a voice for Redskins fans and season tickets holders.

#2-  Supporting the Redskins franchise, a Virginia-based business that generates hundreds of millions of dollars in taxable revenue for schools, roads, public safety and other important public services in the Commonwealth.

#3-  Opposing the inappropriate involvement of the United States Congress in issues surrounding the Redskins franchise and its supporters.

#4-  Supporting commercial freedom in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the rights of businesses to their own brands and intellectual property.

Senator Petersen, Delegate Miller and Delegate Ramadan will join other legislators today, before the House of Delegates convenes, at 3:30 p.m. in the Media Room of the General Assembly Building to hold a press conference announcing the formation of the Redskins Pride Caucus.   All are welcome to attend.
