Next Meeting—Committee Reorganization
December 9, at 10 a.m. Regular Monthly Meeting to Follow
Don’t miss our reorganization meeting on Saturday, December 9 at 10 a.m. at Ashland Coffee & Tea, 100 N. Railroad Avenue. This is the biennial reorganization caucus, required by the State Democratic Party. The purpose of the caucus is to re-elect members of the HDC for 2018-19 term. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and close at 10 a.m. (Only those in line by 10 a.m. will be allowed to enter the Caucus.) Any Hanover Democrat wishing to participate in the Caucus and/or be a candidate for election to the Committee must complete a Caucus Participation/Membership form and mail that form to HDC, P.O. Box 22, Ashland, VA 23005 or fill out a form the day of the caucus. (If you are already a member of the HDC, you have received the membership form in the mail.) Immediately following the Caucus, a regular meeting of the newly reorganized Hanover County Democratic Committee will be held at which time the election of officers and approval of the By-Laws will take place. Nominations for officers will be accepted from the floor.
The Caucus Participation/Membership forms include an affirmation that the participant is a Democrat, does not intend to support any candidate who is opposed to a Democratic nominee, believes in the principles of the Democratic Party, and is a registered voter in Hanover County. Dues of $30.00 are assessed along with the Membership Form. There is no assessment for participation in the Caucus. (Dues will be excused for reasons of financial hardship.) For the official call to caucus, caucus rules, and newly drafted bylaws,
