The community was created as an lj-based watchdog site for the Virginia General Assembly (and various state/local/federal elections and issues), with a focus on the state government, politicians, and bills.

And yes, "watchdog" is a verb.

Your moderator is missmeridian, who was inspired by Democracy for Virginia and This Is Not Over, as well as the support and enthusiam of the many progressive and activist members of the Live Journal community. You can email me at missmeridian at livejournal.com.

I want to encourage Virginians out there to track these and other legislature, and post your research here. Please feel free to cross-post to/from other journals and communities.

Non-virginians are certainly welcome too! Please tell us about watchdog efforts in your state, and encourage your fellow state-ians to organize, research, and disseminate.
