The reorganization, as required by the State Party Plan every two years, will be on the agenda, with nominations for officers for the 2022-2023 cycle.

NOMINATIONS FOR NEW OFFICERS 2022-2023

As required by our bylaws, the Hanover County Democratic Committee must reorganize every two years in odd-numbered years, which includes:
1. Members are required to re-join for another two years with dues of $30 for the two-year membership. You should have received your renewal form in the mail already.
2. Elect new officers.

Stand Up For Democracy

by Larry Fellerman

As a retired high school teacher, I have been stunned by the decision of the Republican Party to embrace the critical race theory put forth by extremists who wish to destroy democracy within the United States.

Their attempt to rewrite history so that young white children don’t feel “uncomfortable” about confronting the tragic racial transgressions against minorities (race, gender, place of origin, etc.) which permeate American history, is simply an attempt to base the study of our past upon a foundation of lies.

Republican opponents of critical race theory deny that massacres of African American citizens by white mobs in Tulsa, unarmed Native Americans by white soldiers at Wounded Knee, innocent Chinese-Americans in California and thousands of other incidents throughout this nation ever really happened. Many of these same Republicans deny that the Holocaust in Europe during the 1940s really occurred. Read more
