The filing deadline for delegates for the 5th CD and state conventions passed at 5 PM today. Rappahannock County was allocated three delegates and one alternate, and exactly four people filed, so I am cancelling the April 23rd caucus at The Theatre at Washington.Please join me in thanking the members of our delegation for their committment to represent the Rappahannock Democrats at the conventions in May and June:

Sharon Kilpatrick (delegate) (supporting Douglass)
John Diley (delegate) (supporting Douglass)
David Oliver (delegate) (supporting Douglass)
Henry Gorfein (alternate) (undeclared)

Thanks also to Wendy Weinberg for allowing us the use of the Theatre. May these (overdue) April showers bring you May flowers. And spinach!
