The Democratic Party of Virginia State Steering and Central Committees will hold their quarterly meetings in Williamsburg on June 12 (7:30 pm, Williamsburg Hospitality House) and June 13 (10:00 am, Sadler Center, Chesapeake Room).  The committees will:

  • Elect Party Officers – Incumbent Chair Richard Cranwell, Vice Chair for Organization Jennifer McClellan, and Vice Chair for Finance Jim Turpin are the only candidates pre-filed and therefore will be reelected, keeping in place a strong team of leaders that has done a great job.  There are currently contested races for Vice Chair for Rules, Vice Chair for Outreach, Vice Chair for Technology and Communication, Secretary and Treasurer.  I join outgoing Secretary Pixie Bell in enthusiastically supporting Steve Bunn of Fairfax for Secretary.
  • Adopt Resolutions — see report of Resolutions Committee here.
  • Elect three members to the 2009-2013 Resolutions Committee.
  • Vote on the recognition of the Democratic Latino Organization of Virginia (DLOV) as a caucus.

After the meeting , there will be a Party Unity Rally featuring our Statewide Ticket at 12:00 pm at Alumni House, College of William and Mary.

All Virginia Democrats are invited to attend all events – especially the Rally!

On a personal note, I will not be seeking reelection as Vice Chair for Rules, having been elected to the DNC last year.  I have worked hard over the past eight years to craft processes that were open, fair, and clear and help build the Democratic Party.  I thank the Virginia Democrats and excellent party staff who have worked with me over that time.  I look forward to more Democratic victories in Virginia and new challenges at the DNC.
