I once wrote a blog to ‘watch that index finger’ and keep it off the publish button until the blogger was fullysatisfied with the article.
This blogger’s rule #2 … if publishing dates, double check the dates. In the last issue one event was referred to by two different dates. So see below and consider coming to the PG Dems meeting on June 2 … the first Thursday of June to learn about the Democratic Primary, Restoration of Rights, and Phone Banking. Meeting location is the Prince George Human Services Building, 6450 Administration Drive (Bldg #12), Prince George Government Complex, 1st Floor Community Meeting Room. Building is ADA accessible, non-smoking and the wifi is top rate.
Plus, there is another late breaking event … the Voter Suppression Rally Petersburg … a mass gathering to oppose voter suppression on June 4 on Pocohontas Island, Petersburg at 4:30, sponsored by the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, local legislators, and state-wide partners.
The Prince George Dems are planning a lot of activities and events for the month of June. It is a month of politics … isn’t it grand?
The PG DEMs newsletter will be published soon and you will find more details there. Read it. Print it. Share it. Don’t receive it? Send a note to Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sharon at email@example.com and we can get you on the list.
