Our biennial reorganization caucus will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2012 at the Washington Town Hall. This caucus is for Democrats only. However, we welcome (and need) the support of non-Democrats who share our values and/or support our candidates. If you are in that category, stay on this list and you’ll see opportunities to help out with events or activities in 2012.
Please let me know if you’re interested in being on the executive committee or one of the standing committees.There are lots of things we can do together this year to help elect Barack Obama and Tim Kaine, turn a Republican House of Representatives seat to Democrat, and lay the foundation for the 2013 state elections. –Steve Beatty, chair
