I am seeking election to a second term on the DNC (Democratic National Committee) at the DPVA State Convention on June 2, and I have been contacting folks around the state to ask for their support. Many of these are people I worked with in the Young Democrats, on local committees, on the DPVA Central Committee, in support of progressive issues, as part of protect and promote the vote activities, and/or in support of Democratic local, state, and national candidates. Others are people who will be delegates to the State Convention who I have met for the first time.
I am releasing today an initial supporters list consisting of good Democrats from every corner of the Commonwealth – from Bristol to Virginia Beach to Northern Virginia. The list includes elected officials, Democratic Committee members, and other activists. It also includes leaders in the Virginia Black Caucus, the Democratic Latino Organization of Virginia, the Asian-American Caucus, the LGBT Caucus, the Veterans and Military Families Caucus, the Young Democrats, and leaders in Labor and business.
I am very proud of my volunteer grass roots efforts over the past 25+ years to build the Democratic Party and elect its candidates, and I am proud to have the support of many good Democrats, including those on this list. You can find more information about my candidacy at the Re-Elect page.
I also want to let you know that I will be running as part of a DNC Unity Team of four DNC candidates (myself, Mame Reiley, Doris Crouse-Mays, and George E. Wallace), and I will be sharing a post about these great folks shortly.
My supporters list below is growing daily! To add your name to the list please click here.
