The Democratic Party of Virginia is holding its quarterly State Steering and State Central Committee meetings on February 18-19, 2011, in Richmond, in connection with our annual Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner (featuring Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley) and other party events. See schedule in prior post and go to the DPVA website for updates and tickets to the fundraising events. The J-J Dinner is the DPVA’s primary annual fundraiser and we can’t do the organization we need to do without money, so please join us. In addition to the official events, this is a great opportunity to meet Democrats from across the Commonwealth and catch up with old friends.
One of the main business activities will be consideration of resolutions, similar to those we adopted four and eight years ago, to allocate Virginia’s delegation to the Democratic National Convention by a presidential primary, with the delegates to be chosen at a State Convention. See below. The 2008 primary saw nearly 1 million Virginia Democrats participate, and we should continue to support this open and democratic process.
