As the Richmond Patriots post all of Cantor's town hall meetings, you know that the 'Advisory Council Meetings' are held 3 times a year, and the Republican Roundup is held every October. Leader Cantor has been holding these events since he was elected to Congress. To get a reminder about these events, all you have to do is sign up at

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports that about 200 protestors held signs saying 'I Need A Job to Pay My Bill' and 'Whose Side Are You On?' yesterday, outside of Cantor's town hall at the Koger Center in Richmond.

Some people were provided transportation to the site, according to Virginia Organizing, a left-leaning grass-roots organization that coordinated the event with other groups, including the Service Employees International Union. The central group from Virginia Organizing is located in Charlottesville, Virginia.
