Virtual Congressional Candidates Forum is April 19

The candidates cannot get out on the stump. So we will do the next best thing with a 1st Congressional District Virtual Candidates Forum at 3 p.m. on April 19. The forum will take place on Zoom. Registration information will be forthcoming.  Candidates Vangie Williams and Qasim Rashid will be participating.  Please address questions to John Suddarth, john@suddarth.net

Blue Wave Bash, April Meetings Canceled

We regret to inform you that we are postponing the Blue Wave Bash, originally scheduled for April 23. At the moment, we do not know when we will reschedule it.

With events happening as they are, we are not sure when it will be safe again to hold a large meeting. Furthermore, we are also canceling our regular April Democratic Meetings.

Normally, we meet every second Saturday at 10 a.m. at The Depot in Ashland. However, we will not be meeting until we can be certain that all of our members can safely attend.

There is no need to panic. As long as everyone practices good hygiene and social distance, we will be able to lower the curve and get through this with minimal consequences. Let us stay united in spirit. If we had a president who listened to scientists and trusted his department directors, we would likely be ahead of this outbreak. Alas, we are in the predicament that we are and the best that we can do is protect one another by washing our hands frequently with soap and warm water, keeping our distance from one another, and isolating ourselves when we are sick.

This will eventually pass. Use the time to email your elected officials or take one of the actions cited in Take Action Now. Until then, stay safe. All the best to you, your friends, and your family.

Mens Forum


Due to coronavirus precautions

Watch for future information

Be safe!


The next monthly gathering of the Hanover Democratic Committee (HDC) Men's Forum has been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Please watch this space for additional information. Be safe in the meantime.

The purpose of our monthly HDC Men's Forums is to socialize, invigorate, educate and elect Democrats to office. The Men's Forum provides an opportunity for Hanover Democrats to meet, talk politics and hear interesting speakers in our predominately Republican, but slowly turning Democratic county.

All candidates or their representatives also are welcome to come and say a few words (2-3 minutes).

Questions? Contact Don Barth at donna.don@comcast.net, call his cellphone or text 856-889-5905, or call or leave a message at his landline 804-299-3160.

Coffee Meeting

Coffee is CANCELED!

While our Hanover Democratic Women's Coffees are suspended temporarily because of the virus, we look forward to soon resuming our informal gatherings of like-minded women from all over the county.

Our Coffee Caucus is 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.

New friends are always welcome

To RSVP, or for more information, please contact Diane Neergaard at daneergaard@comcast.net or 804-304-1951.
