Welcome to our first live/in-person Men’s Forum in over a year, thanks to COVID. Come and actually see, converse, mingle and socialize with your HDC friends again, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 23 at Dale Mann’s home. The address is 12778 Mount Hermon Road, Ashland. Hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Now that the primary is over, the real work begins to make sure the Republicans don’t take back our government and turn back the great progress we have made recently. We must elect our Democratic governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and delegate (senators are not running in this off-year election). Even if your candidate didn’t win; the selected candidates, the Democrats and our Democracy need your full support. The Republicans learned that electing the president starts with local politics, so please come to our live Men’s Forum at 7 p.m. on June 23, and meet and learn how you can help elect Rachel Levy, the Democratic candidate for the House of Delegates for the 55th District.

Rachel Levy is a public school teacher, parent, education expert, civil rights activist and long-time member of the HDC who already serves the people of the 55th District and now wants to serve them in the House of Delegates. She is running because the people of the 55th District deserve competent, independent-minded and service-oriented leadership. She believes in strong public schools, that healthcare is a human right, that we must protect our environment and conserve our natural resources, and that our criminal justice system must be fair and humane. She looks forward to being the speaker at the Men’s Forum in June.

Our monthly Men’s Forum, usually scheduled for the 4th Wednesday of the month, provides a candid way for Hanover’s Democratic community to stay informed, invigorated and connected, with opportunities to talk politics with expert speakers in our slowly bluing county. We are grateful for your continued support.

Most of us have been vaccinated; anyone who has not been vaccinated, please wear a mask.
