Kaine For Virginia Launches “Salute To Service” Tour To Celebrate Week Of July 4 

Richmond, VA – On Monday July 1, Tim Kaine will kick-off a Salute to Service Tour to celebrate and thank public servants in every corner of the Commonwealth.   

Tim began his public service career when he volunteered with Jesuit missionaries in 1980-81, teaching welding and carpentry to schoolchildren in Honduras. After an 18-year career as a civil rights lawyer fighting discrimination, he has now spent 30 years serving Virginians in local, state and national elected office. July 1 marks the 30th anniversary of Tim first assuming office, representing the people of the 2nd District on the Richmond City Council. 

Kaine has stood up for Virginia public servants—military members and their families, veterans, teachers, enforcement and health care workers—at every step along the way.    He has passed important legislation to protect our troops, guard against government shutdowns, provide mental health resources for frontline health care workers and adequately fund law enforcement.    

As a member of the Armed Services Committee, he helped pass the PACT Act, the largest expansion of veterans benefits in decades. He fixed a disastrous provision of the Trump 2017 tax cuts imposing extra taxes on Gold Star families and has been a champion of efforts to bring down the unemployment rate among veterans and military spouses. 

“I honor all who serve our communities, Commonwealth and nation,” said Senator Tim Kaine. “As we celebrate our nation’s independence, I want to make sure that we honor their sacrifices and find new ways to support them going forward.” 

The tour will start in Petersburg and make stops in Charles City, Highland Springs, Amelia, Spotsylvania, Stafford, Woodbridge, Great Falls, Fairfax, Dale City, Virginia Beach, and Portsmouth.
