Rapp Dems Urgently Need a District-wide Representative‏

The Rappahannock County Democratic Committee has been ably represented for years by Hank Gorfein at the District Level. Hank has told us that he needs to concentrate on his more important duties for the foreseeable future, so we are seeking a replacement for the next six months to perform those duties which Hank has handled so well.

We are looking for a committed Democrat who has an interest in local, district and state party politics. Duties include attending District and State meetings (about one a quarter), monitoring activities that bear upon county committee activities, learning and interpreting state party directives as they apply to local committees and helping vet and select nominees to compete for state and federal offices.

Contact me, at secretary(at)rappdems.org or contact Ross O’Donoghue at 540 987-8019.
