Coffee is Brewing
ALL DEMOCRATIC WOMEN ARE INVITED
We'll be gathering at Ginny Moretz's home at 10072 Studley Farms Drive in the Studley area for an evening coffee on Tuesday, April 29 at 7 p.m.
To those who don't know, we are a growing group of Democratic women who meet monthly - sometimes during the day and sometimes at night - in homes of volunteer hostesses at different locations around the county. Our goal is to enable as many women as possible to get to know and inspire one another. We have no formal programs, membership or dues. Please join us and bring a friend!

I'm One of "Those People"
by Vivian Sullivan
I visited our delegate, Buddy Fowler on Health Care Lobby Day at the General Assembly to ask him to vote for Medicaid Expansion/Marketplace Virginia. He gave a list of reasons why he couldn't do that. They were canned talking points Right Wing Repulbicans are using to try to sabatoge the Affordable Care Act. Then, he added a caviot of his own: "My wife and I pay our bills. Why can't those people pay theirs?"

Barnette Elected to Hanover Electoral Board
As soon as Terry McAuliffe was inaugurated Virginia’s Governor, Hanover Democrats were entitled to be represented by two Democrats (instead of just one) on the Hanover Electoral Board. I was asked to submit three names to the Hanover Circuit Court, which I did: Robert Barnette, Lou Szari and Patricia Bailey. The Hon. J. Overton Harris then selected one representative. I am happy to say that our former chair, Robert Barnette, was selected by the Judge. Barnette will join Democrat Ernest Mason who has served admirably for many years. Robert is the president of the Hanover branch of the NAACP and has long fought for protecting the Voting Rights Act. Congratulations Robert, we know you will serve Hanover well. Another Democratic representative will be picked by the Judge to replace Ernest when he retires next year. - Gordon Silver, Chair
