Senator-elect Jim Webb (Dem-VA) makes a PHANTASTIC choice

UPDATE: I did not read the article correctly. The staff is not finalized; Leslie Byrne has volunteered to help Senator-elect Jim Webb put his senate operation team together.

Unfortunately for me, this sentence is confusing:
WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen.-elect Jim Webb on Friday added a former congresswoman from Northern Virginia and a lawyer and Democratic Party activist from the state's far southwest to his Senate transition team.
Thanks to the Honorable Leslie Byrne for the correction, and thanks for dropping by West of Shockoe.




Leslie Byrne and Mary Lynne Tate join the transition team...

Right on, Senator-elect Jim Webb; Leslie is awesome.












WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen.-elect Jim Webb on Friday added a former congresswoman from Northern Virginia and a lawyer and Democratic Party activist from the state's far southwest to his Senate transition team.

Leslie Byrne of Falls Church and Mary Lynn Tate of Abingdon will round out a team that includes former U.S. Rep. Owen B. Pickett of Virginia Beach, Richmond lawyer and state Del. Donald McEachin, and veteran Senate staffer Tom Lehner, Webb's office said.

Byrne, who served in the House from 1993 to 19 95 and narrowly lost a race for lieutenant governor last year, was among the first prominent Democrats to endorse Webb last spring. She played a prominent role in his efforts to mobilize women voters and overcome Republican charges that some of his writings degraded women.

Tate is a prominent trial lawyer and former president of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association. She was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 2004.

Jamie: Thanks for the mention but one small correction. None of the transition team are hired. We are volunteering to help Senator Elect Webb put his senate operation together. Regards, Leslie Byrne
