Congressional Candidates Face-OFf

We are excited to announce that the next monthly gathering of the HDC Men's Forum on Wednesday, January 22 at 7 p.m. at The Depot (107 S. Railroad Avenue, Ashland) will be a discussion among the candidates who have announced they are seeking the Democratic nomination for the First Congressional District.

At this point, the candidates running for the Democratic nomination are Phil Cox, Qasim Rashid, Kevin Washington and Vangie Williams. If other candidates announce between now and the forum date, they will be added to the lineup of forum speakers. Following the presentation, we will conduct an unofficial presidential candidate straw poll from among the attendees. 

The forum will be moderated by Rich Meagher, political science professor at Randolph-Macon College. Mr. Meagher was the moderator at our previous First Congressional District Forum about two years ago.

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.

Because of its scope, this month's forum is open to men and women from Hanover County and the surrounding counties in the First Congressional District. Please join us on Wednesday, January 22 at 7 p.m.
