The Jefferson Council’s inaugural meeting last night was a huge success. Highlights included a video greeting from Governor Glenn Youngkin, a keynote speech by Attorney General Jason Miyares, an address by legendary University of Virginia professor Kenneth Elzinga, and presentations by Jefferson Council members. For those not fortunate enough to attend, we will post video clips and other materials from the event as we can assemble them.
Here is the clip from Governor Youngkin.
Money quote: “It is up to all of us to ensure that freedom of speech will be fostered here at the University of Virginia. The greatest threat to our democracy does not come from tyrants abroad or unprincipled politicians at home. It comes from the growing tendency to loathe rather than listen.”
