April Moore, the Democratic candidate who is running for Virginia State Senate against Mark Obenshain in the 26th District, is coming to Rappahannock County on Friday, May 17, 2019 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Come meet her and talk about the issues that matter to you!
Little Eldon Farm, 70 Little Eldon Lane, Woodville VA
April Moore gets that Virginians need affordable healthcare and control over that happens to their bodies. Mark Obenshain voted to block Medicaid to 400,000 poor Virginians, destroy the Affordable Care Act, and deny a woman’s right to choose what happens to her pregnancy.
Meg Heubeck, Director of
Educational Outreach at the UVA Center for Politics will present a workshop on:
People Who Disagree With You
Tuesday, 23 April, 2019, from 7 to 9 PM
Rappahannock County Library, 4 Library Rd, Washington VA 22747
In this age of polarization, it is important to be able to
talk with spouses, neighbors, and acquaintances about issues where you may not
agree. This workshop will provide the tools to have those discussions. These
skills are often not intuitive, but they can be learned. The result will be
more civil discussions of issues important to us all and more informed
decisions. Note: this workshop is not about issues. It is about acquiring the
tools to discuss those issues.
The workshop is free,
non-political and open to everyone. Send me an email to say you’re coming, so I
know how many cookies to make.
events in Richmond have left our heads spinning. In one week, the top three
elected officials, the Democratic Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General,
were under attack for shocking moral failures that jeopardize their positions,
the state of the Commonwealth and the whole Democratic agenda. Information came
fast and furious, and so did reactions from leaders across the Commonwealth and
the country, who demanded their resignations.
The RCDC decided to take a more deliberate approach. At our February 9 general
meeting, we held a discussion, weighed the issues and took a vote. It helped to
clear our thinking. The result was an open letter to the Governor to encourage
a positive way forward toward redemption for racial equity for all Virginians.
We encourage Governor Ralph Northam to take the lead.
