Tonight we welcomed Shelly Simmonds to our weekly meeting. Shelly spoke with us about her personal experiences in Virginia politics, starting with leading the PTA at her daughter's school and most recently featuring a race for the Virginia House of Delegates decided by drawing a name from a bowl. She also spoke about the importance of registering voters and increasing turnout in future elections. We can't wait to see what the future holds for Ms. Simmonds!
We're currently in the process of collecting signatures to ensure Senator Kaine is on the ballot in the fall. Our members have been all over Central Grounds over the past week to ensure this is accomplished quickly and efficiently. Considering the Republicans that have announced their intention to run against Senator Kaine, it is absolutely vital to ensure he is in the best possible position going into the fall.
