On May 5, the Rappahannock delegation traveled to Farmville to attend the Nominating Convention. Delegation chair Ron Goodman and delegates Kit Goldfarb, Steph Ridder, Betsy Dietel, with alternates Heidi Lesinski and Cliff Miller, were joined by RCDC committee members to vote local candidate LESLIE COCKBURN the nominee! It was inspiring!

In her acceptance speech, Cockburn remembered what civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis had said to her about running for office: “You are a leader. Now go home and lead!”

“You are all leaders,” she said to the crowd. “Now go home and lead!”

And so, off we go to defeat Tom Garrett in November!
