State political and transportation leaders in area Thursday

By Sally Voth svoth@nvdaily.com

Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb will spend some time in the Northern Shenandoah Valley on Thursday.

Holcomb will be making stops at both Shenandoah University and at the motor carrier service station (weigh station) in Stephens City, according to a DMV news release. He will be joined by area legislators at both stops.

Holcomb will be part of a ribbon-cutting ceremony honoring the department's new partnership with Shenandoah University at 10 a.m., DMV spokeswoman Sunni Brown said Wednesday.

Sen. Jill Holtzman Vogel, R-Upperville, and delegates Joe May, R-Leesburg; Randy Minchew, R-10th; and Beverly Sherwood, R-Winchester, also will be on hand, she said.

Brown said the DMV 2 Go mobile office is making its first visit to the university this week, offering DMV services from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. The mobile unit saw steady traffic Wednesday, according to Brown.

"I think it's been a great service for the campus community," she said. "We're going to be committed to returning there at least once a semester."

Following the visit at Shenandoah University, the legislators -- minus Minchew -- and Holcomb will travel a few miles south to the weigh station, Brown said.

There, Holcomb will give the lawmakers an update and allow them to learn about operations at the station, including pit inspections, a control tower tour and an automatic license plate reader. He also will go over Interstate 81 crash numbers, Brown said.
