Five governors and a reporter

Five Virginia governors gathered together Thursday, and it couldn't have been in their favorite place -- a roomful of journalists. What brought them together? A celebration for the dean of the capital press corps. Reporter Tyler Whitley was honored for 50 years at the Richmond Times-Dispatch and Richmond News Leader at a champagne reception attended by Gov. Bob McDonnell and former governors Jim Gilmore, Doug Wilder, Gerry Baliles and Linwood Hilton. "If it's true that reporters write the first draft of history, then Tyler has written a lot of history,'' Baliles said. When Whitley began as an obituary writer for the now-defunct afternoon News Leader the Beatles were just getting off the ground, JFK was president and the governor of Virginia? I'm sure you all remember -- a man named James Lindsay Almond. Whitley has covered nine governors, 14 national political conventions and four redistrictings. He's been to 10 countries...

The Chairman of the Board of Equality Virginia, the state's gay rights group, is taking issue with one of Gov. Bob McDonnell's appointees to the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors. McDonnell Thursday appointed John Rocovich, chairman of a Roanoke lawfirm, to the university's governing board. Rocovich had previously served on the board under Gov. Jim Gilmore (R), during a time when the board repealed the school's policy barring discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. That issue has returned to the forefront in recent months, after Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) wrote a letter to each public university, asking them to rescind such policies. The universities have responded by reaffirming those policies, and McDonnell issued Executive Directive No. 1, prohibiting discrimination in the state workforce. Mark Board, chair of the Board of Equality Virginia, said the following about Rocovich's appointment in a statement: Equality Virginia is disappointed that the Governor...
