Hanover County Democratic Committee

Moving Hanover Forward

Coffee is brewing!

All Democratic women are welcome.

Coffee Meeting

Our June Hanover Democratic Women's Coffee will be on Wednesday night, June 21, at 7 p.m. at the home of Jen Chambers in Ashland. Jen lives at  901 S. Center Street, Ashland 23005.

Like-minded women from all around Hanover will have fun making new friends and bonding with others on this first night of summer. There will be serious talk, too, as we look forward to helping elect our Democratic candidates for state government in November. And, of course, there will be tempting refreshments.

Do come  -- and bring a friend.

Men's Forum to meet in june

The fourth monthly gathering of Hanover Democratic Men's Forum will be held on Tuesday, June 27th, at 7 p.m. at the home of Dale Mann, 12778 Mt. Hermon Road, Ashland. Please note that this month instead of the usual 4th Wednesday of the month, the Forum will be held one day early. Patterned after the HDC's very popular women's monthly coffees, these Democratic Men's Forums will provide an opportunity for Hanover Democratic men to meet, socialize, talk politics and hear interesting speakers.

Please Take This Survey

In response to the disastrous outcome of the 2017 election, a group of our members and supporters began sending out weekly e-mails to prompt Hanover Democrats to take action to counter measures undertaken by the Trump administration. The Affordable Care Act, the immigration ban, voting rights, drastic EPA cutbacks, cabinet appointments, the administration's Russian connections and more have been subjects of these weekly emails which have affectionately come to be known as TANs. You see them in your e-mail the first part of each week. The TANs are posted on the HDC website and on Facebook. Now we want to know what you think as TAN wraps up its fourth month of publication.

Please take a minute and send an e-mail to info@hvadems.com to answer the following questions. (Your answers are anonymous.) Please feel free to give open-ended comments.

 * How often do you use TAN action items?

 * Are the TAN items helpful in your advocacy decisions?

 * Are you being as active as you thought you might be after the election?

 * Can TAN better meet your needs?

 * Is there a need for TAN going forward?

 Your feedback will help us as we determine our actions for the coming months.

Del. Fowler, You Got It All Wrong!

From Brian Cannon

Many of you have recently gotten an e-mail from Del. Buddy Fowler, your member of the House of Delegates, concerning our request that he support a more equitable process of redistricting. I want to thank you for petitioning him and while we are grateful he wrote a response, much of his response is either factually incorrect or misses the point. You deserve better information than that. And so I have written in responses to correct the Delegate's misinformation and also to equip you— and those who care about reform— with the right information and talking points to handle these common misconceptions. My responses are in blue.

Please feel free to email or call me if you have questions.  (804.240.9933; brian.cannon@onevirginia2021.org)
