At the June 2, 2012 Virginia Democratic State Convention in Fairfax, we will elect two male and two female representatives to four year terms on the DNC. I am honored to run with Mame Reiley, George Wallace, Doris Crouse-Mays, a diverse group who will continue to work at the DNC to advance progressive issues, build the Democratic Party, and elect Democrats.
- Mame has served on the DNC since 1992 – she currently chairs the DNC Women’s Caucus and serves as a respected member of the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee. She has worked for the election of, and raised money for, countless Democrats, including Senator Warner and Governor Kaine. Mame is an important national voice for Democratic Women and Virginia Democrats.
- George is seeking his first term on the DNC, and has the support of leaders of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus. He has had a long career of public service in local government and was just re-elected as the leading voter getter and Vice-Mayor of Hampton, Virginia. George will bring a unique perspective as a local official to the DNC and contribute to our efforts to elect Democrats from the courthouse to the White House.
- Doris is seeking only her second term on the DNC, but she already sits on the DNC Executive Committee. She is a long time Democratic activist who was elected as the first woman president president of the Virginia AFL-CIO. She oversees Labor’s political program in Virginia, has help elect many Democrats, and works every day to advance the interests of Virginia’s working families.
