All Democratic Women are Welcome!
The November Hanover Democratic Women's Coffee, an evening get together this month, will be on Thursday, November 29. Our hostess Ann Martin will welcome us to her Ashland home at 7 pm. Ann lives at 113 Henry Clay Road, Ashland, 23005.
All Democratic women are invited to come for great fellowship and spirited conversation with like-minded women from all over Hanover and beyond.
For those who don't know, we are a growing group of Democratic women of all ages who meet monthly, sometimes in the day and sometimes in the evening, at the homes of volunteer hostesses at different locations around the county. Our goal is to enable as many women as possible to get to know one another so that we can better work together. We have no formal memberships or dues.
For more information or to RSVP, please contact Diane Neergaard at email@example.com, or 804-304-1951.

Wednesday, November 28 at 7:00 pm
The next monthly gathering of the Hanover Democratic Men's Forum will be held on Wednesday, November 28 (this is the week after Thanksgiving) at 7:00 pm in the heart of the College District in Ashland at the home of Nelson Vaughan, 209 College Avenue, Ashland. 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 come hungry as he will be serving heavy hors-d'oeuvres.
This month's speaker will be Trevor Southerland, the Executive Director of the Virginia House Democrats and a Hanover member of the 1st Congressional District Democratic Committee, who will speak on Democratic politics. Trevor has been with the Virginia House Democratic Caucus since 2014, serving as the Finance Director for the 2015 and 2017 cycles as well as Acting Executive Director in 2016. Come to learn the intimacies of Democratic politics here in Virginia and what the results of the November election might mean to the Democrats as well the Commonwealth of Virginia.
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 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, November 28 at 7:00 pm. Don't miss this opportunity to socialize and mobilize.
RSVP to Nelson Vaughan at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the cell phone and text messages 201.826.7093; home 804.496.6217.
If you are a woman and receive this, please send to your favorite Democratic male relative, neighbor or friend.
VOTE, VOTE, VOTE
Tuesday, November 6
every vote counts!
VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
Tuesday, November 6 is the most important Midterm Election of our lives. Please go out and vote to re-elect Sen. Tim Kaine and elect Vangie Williams to Congress. Sen. Kaine is unique…he’s not a politician, but a true public servant. He’s there to make the lives of his constituents better. We need more like him in Washington. Vangie Williams is following right in his footsteps and is what we need to represent the people of the First Congressional District (all of Hanover). Please don’t miss this opportunity to elect two wonderful Democratic candidates and to put a dent into Donald Trump’s destructive agenda. Talk to your young people to make sure they vote too. See you at the polls. We need every one of you to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 6. (See Ashley Hall’s Two Cents…A Vote Is A Chess Move, Not A Valentine.)
Thank You Breakfast—Saturday, Nov. 10 at 10
Don’t miss our Thank You Breakfast on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. at Ashland Coffee & Tea. You have worked the Polls, phone banked, knocked on doors, written postcards, donated money, attended forums, and more. We want to thank all of you who have worked so hard this campaign season.
We have moved our breakfast to Ashland Coffee & Tea to serve as many as possible; Ashland Coffee & Tea will give us an extra 25 seats over our location at Ashcreek.
This will be a great way to celebrate our hard work and hopefully celebrate Democratic victories. You will have the opportunity to meet several candidates running for office from Hanover in 2019. And there will be several free drawings. Don’t miss this great time to fellowship with other Hanover Democrats. (We might be able to talk Daniel McGraw into teaching us the rest of the Dougie.) See you Saturday, Nov. 10 at 10.
We are on the verge of a first….staffing all polls, all precincts, every hour. That is a herculean task. That’s 468 shifts. Please help us fill every precinct, every hour. Please see our specific needs below:
In Henry District for the Totopotomoy Precinct at Eastern Hanover Volunteer Fire Station #3, 4428 Mechanicsville Turnpike for three shifts: from 6 to 8 a.m.; from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 5 to 7 p.m.

Forum with Vangie Williams and Rob Wittman---Vangie Won Hands Down!
More than 500 people attended the Forum between Vangie Williams and Republican Rob Wittman at Hanover High School on Thursday, October 25…more than half of the attendees were Vangie supporters. Vangie won the forum by a landslide. Even though the crowd was asked not to applaud, murmurs of disapproval echoed throughout the high school auditorium as Williams read out loud her opponent’s major contributors (special interest groups, big business lobbyists and right wing organizations.) The audience broke rank and booed when Wittman answered a question, saying he supports Corey Stewart, the darling of White Nationalists, over Sen. Tim Kaine. She nailed it on October 25; let’s get out and vote, and nail it on the polls!
