The reluctance of the House of Delegates Republican members to adopt either of the Medicaid expansion proposals before them is starting to have real world consequences: note the attached letter from the CEO of the Culpeper Hospital. The announced closure of the Pennington Gap hospital is at least partially because of the failure to expand Medicaid.
I urge you to contact Delegate Webert and Senator Obenshain and encourage them to find a way to adopt Medicaid Expansion.
Ross O’Donaghue, RCDC Chair
Webert, Michael J.
Obenshain, Mark D.

It’s time for Spring litter pickup on Rt. 211. The Rappahannock County Democrats’ designated area is between Massie’s Corner and the Rappahannock County Library. The route is divided so volunteers won’t have far to walk (all volunteers will initially meet at Massie’s Corner). The trash pickup party at the library will start at shortly after the crews hit the road. Time to be announced.
Volunteers are needed. To sign up, call Jed Duvall at 540-937-3780.
Some RCHS band members and parents will be joining us, as a fundraiser.

Rappahannock County Board of Supervisors Declines Motion to Request the Attorney General’s resignation or censure.
Many thanks to all of the Rappahannock Democrats who phoned or emailed their supervisor to urge them to not support the proposed resolution. Special thanks to all who attended the BOS meeting who articulately and cogently expressed their opposition to the proposed resolution.
Tonight’s general meeting (7:00 pm in the Library) has attracted a representative from Mark Warner’s campaign who is eager to obtain signatures for Senator Warner’s campaign petition and will give us an update on the campaign.
Chairman, Rappahannock County Democratic Committee
