Why is Virtual Adjacency important for La Plata?
I am sure you will find (Jay Hellman’s Virtual Adjacency work) very helpful
as we look ahead to economically and environmentally efficient ways to reinvent government.
— US Congressman Steny Hoyer (D-MD)
in a letter to Vice President Al Gore, July 1996
I write today to urge you to embrace telework as a workplace priority for both the public and private sectors to improve continuity of operations in the event that a disaster – whether natural or man-made – strikes our country. . . Telecommuting has proven benefits, not only for continuity of operations, but also energy savings, air quality,employee productivity, and employee cost savings. In short, telework is a winner all around. As the nation’s largest employer, the federal government should be the model for telework for every level of government as well as the private sector.
— US Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA)
in a letter to President George W Bush, September 2005
