I want to share some exciting news with you, before you read it in the newspaper! Although it's something I never expected to do, I am running for the Virginia House of Delegates. It's the perfect time for a Democrat, especially a woman, to run.
As you know, John Cox is not running for a third term. The Republican candidate is Buddy Fowler - he is Cox's former legislative aid. Without a Democratic opponent, the Republicans assumed Fowler could "cake walk" into office. There is no way we, as Democrats, should let that happen. Too much is at stake.
Even the Republican leadership is afraid of the rightwing Cuccinelli Tea Party slate selected at a contentious Republican Convention over the weekend.
Working together, we can win this race. The numbers indicate that we can take this seat on November 5th.
To win, I need to quickly jumpstart my campaign with your help - right now. Your contribution today will help me reach voters all across the 55th district. In a very short amount of time, I need to get my name and message out and get people to the polls.
Can you help me pay for yard signs, a website, phone calls and much, much more?
I grew up in Ashland and have lived in Hanover for more than 50 years. I know the 55th district very well. I will represent us, The People - not big money or extremists.
Together--we will protect the reproductive rights of women. Together--we will put education and our children's future first. Together--we will focus on jobs and economic growth and prosperity. Let's go! I'm in it to win it!
