Help Keep Rappahannock Clean – Spring Trash Pick-up 2017

Spring 2017 Trash Pick-Up and Party is Saturday, April 29, starting at 8:00 a.m. at the Rappahannock County Library. The Rappahannock County Democrats’ designated area is between Massie’s Corner and the Rappahannock County Library.

Refreshments will be served when crews get back to the library between 9:30 and 10 a.m.

If you can’t walk the route there are plenty of other things to do. Volunteers are needed for taxiing crews and supplies and for serving the refreshments, as well as for picking up trash along the road. If you haven’t been to a trash pick-up event, you’re missing out! It’s safe, fun and rewarding.

Please participate and show the community that Democrats in Rappahannock County care! Call Jed Duvall at 540-522-9912 to sign up.

Letter from Jane Dittmar and an op-ed (analysis on 2016 campaign in the 5th district)

Dear Rappahannock County Democrats,

Happy New Year! I want to thank you once more for investing in my 2016 campaign. Despite the outcome, your contribution helped us inspire nearly 150,000 people to support our values and vote for representation that promised to be responsive and respectful of all people.

As we begin the New Year, I feel renewed and eager to continue our efforts to ensure a vibrant future for our children and our Commonwealth. 2017 is important for Virginia as we work to rebuild a Democratic majority in the state legislature and strive to elect another Democratic governor.

I strongly appeal to you to join me in supporting the efforts of David Toscano, the Democratic Leader in the House of Delegates with whom I will be working, as he seeks to elect a slate of qualified candidates to the General Assembly and efforts to elect a Democratic Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General.

On, on in 2017!

Jane Dittmar

P.S. Please find below an op-ed that offers an analysis of the 2016 campaign in the 5th District.
