Jeff Shapiro will be the special guest speaker at the 10:00 a.m. meeting of the Brandermill Region Men’s Club in the Brandermill Church on May 6th. As a political reporter and columnist for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, he has covered the state Capitol and Virginia campaigns since 1980 -- first, for United Press International, a wire service, then, beginning in 1985, for Virginia Business, a monthly magazine formerly published by Media General, the T-D’s parent.
Shapiro joined the Times-Dispatch in 1987. His tenure with the newspaper parallels such important trends in Virginia as its accelerating electoral competitiveness, its decades-long struggles with financing such important services as education and transportation and the emergence of Virginia political personalities as important players in national campaigns and policy debates.
Shapiro’s column for the Sunday edition of The Times-Dispatch is carried by many of the newspaper’s sibling publications across Virginia. He also prepares a video column for the T-D’s website, timesdispatch.com that appears on Thursdays. On Friday mornings, Shapiro provides commentary on government and politics for WCVE-FM, Richmond’s public-radio station. He also appears on public broadcasting’s Virginia Currents.
Since 1991, Shapiro has been a correspondent for The Economist, the British newsmagazine, writing on southern culture and politics.
