Hanover County Democratic Committee

Moving Hanover Forward

Setting our Sights on a November Win

The next meeting of the Hanover Democratic Committee on Saturday, August 12 at 10 a.m. will focus on "Trouble in our Own Backyard"--that is another KKK rally in Charlottesville. There has already been one greatly publicized KKK Rally in Charlottesville, but now, the group is trying to revitalize itself by bringing in Alt Right members from around the country.

Coffee is brewing!

All Democratic women are welcome.

Coffee Meeting

It's time for another evening Coffee. Stacy Sprowl  will  host this August Coffee on August 30 at 7 pm at her home in Kings Charter Subdivision, near Atlee High School.  Stacy's address is 9418 Charter Lake Drive, 23116.  We'll have time for catching up with old friends and making new ones as well as getting updates on our candidates for the upcoming elections.  And, of course, there will be plenty of refreshments. 

Men's Forum


The next meeting of the Hanover Democratic Men's Forum will be Wednesday, August 23rd at 7 p.m. at the home of Nelson Vaughan, 209 College Ave., in the heart of Ashland's college district.

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)
