The RCDC thanks April Moore for running for State Senate.
It was a pleasure to help with her campaign.
40.5 percent of the county voted for April, an improvement in democratic votes.
Thanks to Greg for all the hard work.

THE DAY AFTER: REFLECTIONS AND THANKS
First, while of course I would prefer to have won and would have preferred at least for our vote totals to have been higher (I got 32%), nonetheless, I feel strongly that this campaign was a big success and entirely worth the effort that so many people put into it. No one, to my knowledge, has yet succeeded in penetrating the closed system that has so many people on the Right in its thrall.
This is a national problem and no shame to our campaign that we proved unable to be the first to solve it. And as I know from my experience as a teacher, the immediate impact on people of an educational experience is not the whole story. Seeds get planted, and sometimes, over time, they take root and grow. So our success has been, first of all, in broadcasting a powerful message into the district and beyond, regarding the most important issues facing our state and our nation. These include the need to rescue our democracy from the ongoing take-over by Big Money and the need to deal responsibly with the challenge of climate change, so we can leave our children a livable planet. And our campaign succeeded also in inspiring this community of wonderful people to come together in such a bright spirit of caring and enthusiasm for the common good and for each other. I will always feel honored by the outpouring of support I received from so many and grateful for the experience of working with you all. I don’t know yet where my path will lead from here. But of course, I am not done working for our great American ideals and for our children and grandchildren. And I know you aren’t either.
Thanks to all of you for all you do, in working for the things that truly matter.

As Senator, I want to ensure that my staff and constituent services are as accessible as possible to all Virginians. That’s why we hold “Kaine Connects” office hours across the Commonwealth so you can meet one-on-one with members of my staff, ask questions and get assistance in your hometown. Although I can’t be there in person, this is a terrific opportunity to get personalized and undivided attention from my staff.
On Wednesday, October 28, a member of my staff will host Kaine Connects office hours at the Rappahannock County Library in Washington, Virginia. My staff will be available from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM. I encourage you to RSVP by clicking here for the point of contact, but you are always welcome to stop by.
