Hanover County Democratic Committee

Moving Hanover Forward

Just Vote!

By Sandra Howard 

Chair, Black Caucus if the Hanover Democratic Committee 

Young people losing their lives before they begin, living at the hands of our armed officials.  Our  commander in chief is more concerned about spending our taxpayers dollars on investigating to find a culprit talking about him while migrant  children have lost their parents, probably never to see them again, and we still have not seen the taxes of the highest official in our nation, the someone that has been entrusted to guide and protect our nation, our lives and the lives of our future generations.  This America stands on the edge of deep cliffs that could engulf us at any moment because we have a Congress and Senate, majority leaders, who just do not care and have become a silent "legislature".   This is just an ant's cuff of our problems in our America today.  

People say their vote doesn't count and we stay home on election day or grumble about our leadership. Races are won by a handful of people because of lack of participation.  A race in Virginia last year was won by one (1) vote.  Where do you need to be on "election day"?   I know where I will be and I pray you will be:  At your precinct casting your ballot, protecting your God-given rights and your only hope for a better tomorrow for all of us. That oval mark makes a difference to your health care, your future voting rights, the air we breathe like human beings and our commitment to the care and protection of our children.  Just turn on your tv or radio and look at what we have in our White House, our Congress and our Senate. JUST VOTE, your vote does count. Don't just listen to me, do your homework, check out my facts. The vote!

We are Americans!

The next meeting of the Hanover Democratic Committee on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. at Ashland Coffee & Tea will take an in-depth look at proposed changes to the House District map and specifically at what it will do to Hanover's 55th and 97th House Districts. Liz White, the Deputy Director of the One Virginia 2021, will discuss the current proposal and its impact on 

Hanover districts especially the 55th House District. How Hanover is positioned during redistricting is a crucial issue. White is the Deputy Director of OneVirginia2021 and has been with the organization since 2015. She has a BA from the College of William and Mary and is helping OneVirginia2021 grow its supporter base.  Don't miss this important meeting at Ashland Coffee & Tea, on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. As always, the coffee is on us.

 Mens Forum


The next monthly gathering of the Hanover Democratic Men's Forum will be held on WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 24 at 7:00 pm at the home of BILL FLEMING, 11054 BROOKHOLLOW DR, GLEN ALLEN.   These Democratic Men's Forums provide an opportunity for Hanover Democratic men to meet, socialize, talk politics and hear interesting speakers.  The host and Chair of these Democratic Men's Forums, Nelson Vaughan, says hors d'oevres will be served. 

This month's speaker will be TONI RADLER, chair of the Hanover Democratic Committee (HDC) who will speak on the upcoming election and what everyone can do to guarantee Democratic victories.  This will be our last Men's Forum before the November midterm elections which will be the most important election of our lifetime.

The purpose of these monthly Men's Forums is to socialize, invigorate, educate and elect Democrats and is a great opportunity to get to know like-minded Democratic men in a way that you just can't in other venues in this predominantly Republican (but turning blue) county.  The monthly Saturday morning committee meetings are great but you don't have the opportunity to talk and to get to know one another on a more social level.  It also gives those who can't attend the Saturday morning meetings a chance to get involved.  So please join us on WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 24 at 7:00 pm.  Don't miss this opportunity to socialize and mobilize.

(Route 1305), in about 0.3 miles Bill's home (black mailbox with his house number 11054 on it) will on the left.   The address for SatNav/GPS users is 11054 Brookhollow Dr., Glen Allen,
