The Circuit Court appointed Prince George Democratic Committee member, Sharon Goertz, to the Prince George Electoral Board. She was sworn in by Circuit Court Clerk Bishop Knott on February 19th in front of a number of the PG Dems.
Every locality in Virginia has a 3 member Electoral Board. The majority on each Board must be members of the newly elected Governor’s political party. With the election of Democrat Terry McAuliffe, the Republican representative, Brenda Kreider, rolled off of the Board. The Prince George Virginia Democratic Committee then nominated three members to be considered by the court for appointment to the Electoral Board. Traditionally, the first name on the submitted list is considered the preferred candidate by the Committee.
Sharon has served for a number of years as an election official at the polls on election day and has assisted the Committee and a number of Democratic campaigns with data work. She joins Prince George Democrat Lillian King Boyd, currently the Secretary of the Prince George Electoral Board.
Congratulations to Sharon!
Don’t forget the next meeting of the Prince George Democrats, March 6, 5:30 p.m., Prince George County Administration Building, 66o2 Courts Drive, Prince George, 2nd Floor.
