FVA Podcast E02 and show notes

We'd like to thank everyone that tuned in for last week's inaugaral podcast. 

The Four Pillars of Progressive Values

The four "basic" pillars of progressive values are freedom, opportunity, responsibility, and cooperation. It seems pretty simple, but what exactly does it mean when it comes to "being a Progressive"? 

Announcing our new weekly podcast

We've been planning it for some time, and last night we finally sat down and put together our first podcast! We'd like to present the first of what we plan on being a weekly series of half hour news programs on progressive politics in Virginia. In this week's episode, we talk about why we started ForVirgina and what we hope to accomplish; why this November's elections are crucial beyond just the Presidential race, and give a bit of history of corporate cronyism in the Commonwealth with our review of coal tax subsidies in the state. 

Adventures in PAC-ing II: Campaign Finance Reports

Running a PAC isn't just all guts and glory. No, apparently it involves paperwork. Lots of paperwork. I just finished our first quarterly campaign finance report for the Virginia State Board of Elections, and man, it wasn't fun. My main gripe with the process is with the website, for which end-user experience must have been an afterthought. The workflow design must have been performed by a sadist, as most basic data entry tasks involved multiple steps through prerequisite click just to perform an entry.
