Come to Mark's Monthly Meetup TOMORROW!
Saturday, October 29th at 1:30 pm
at Los Tios
Please join us for Mark's Monthly Meetup at 1:30 pm tomorrow, Saturday October 29th at Los Tios Mexican Grill in Del Ray, located at 2615 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria.
Like all Mark's Monthly Meetups, there is no donation required. It's just a place to sit and talk and, for most of us, eat. I always want to know what's on the mind of my constituents and supporters.
I have worked personally with Hillary Rodham Clinton and know her to be brilliant, detailed, passionate, trustworthy, and truly caring. She's someone who does the right thing even when it hurts her politically.
And everyone in the Eighth Congressional District values Don Beyer: his competence, his compassion, his intelligence, and his good spirit. He's not just my bridge partner. He works very hard for us every day.
It's Easy to Vote Early
You can vote absentee if you are unable to easily vote on Election Day. See the listed excuses (listed here). If you need to apply online for an absentee ballot by mail, you can go here to do it. The deadline is Tuesday November 1st and you should do so as soon as possible so you don't have mail problems.
If you can do it, it's much better to vote absentee by going to your Registrar in-person until Saturday, November 5 and cast your vote right then and there. No need to fill out any forms before you arrive. Just go at one of these convenient times and places and VOTE HERE:
132 N Royal St, Suite 100
Monday - Thursday 8 am - 8 pm
Fridays 8am - 6 pm
Saturdays 8 am - 5 pm
If you have a photo voter ID, please bring it. But if you don't have an acceptable picture voter ID, they will issue a temporary ID right on the spot at the Registrar's office and allow you to vote then and there.
Vote NO on 1!

WHAT HAVE I BEEN UP TO?
TV and Newspapers
<-- Always check my news clips in the left-hand column above. It's probably the most interesting part of my newsletter!
I've been defending Hillary on FOX, speaking about building political bridges, defending LGBT civil rights, and protecting the environment.
Four Mile Run is the eastern boundary between Arlington and Alexandria and lies within the 45th Delegate District. A half century ago, the Army Corps of Engineers constructed a system of concrete walls which achieved its purpose of preventing floods but left this once beautiful creek and wetlands looking like an urban jungle.
Ten years ago, many hard-working good citizens of Alexandria and Arlington had a vision of returning Four Mile Runs to the wetlands it used to be, all while maintaining the necessary flood control. Ten years later, the wetlands are back!
But we're not done. There are still plans to transform the entire area into a park with a lovely bridge connecting our sister communities and bring us closer together. I've been working behind the cities to help the project go forward and have already saved Arlington and Alexandria tens of thousands of dollars.
Here I am at the groundbreaking ceremony:
