Democratic Caucus for 18th District Cancelled

UPDATE 8/15/11:

Good news! We have a Democratic Party candidate for the 18th House of Delegates district. Bob Zwick is a long-time member of the Fauquier County Democratic Committee and also serves on the 10th CD committee. He owns Dondoric Farm near The Plains and Marshall. I’m inviting him to our September meeting, and will email more details about his campaign later. The filing deadline passed on Friday, and Bob was the only person to apply, so he is our nominee. The caucus originally scheduled forĀ 8/16/11 is cancelled.
