Our editorial-page view on the local scene:

THUMBS UP: To Del. Patrick Hope (D-47th), for his appointment to the Virginia Health Reform Initiative Advisory Council.

The appointment is a feather in the cap of the freshman legislator, and suggests that the McDonnell administration has pegged Hope as a Democrat they can work with to craft bipartisan solutions to health-care issues that threaten the fiscal stability of the commonwealth.

That’s a positive for Arlington, and for the commonwealth as a whole.
