The Prince George Dems to elect officers:
Please attend the meeting on February 1st. Yes, that is Thursday of this coming week. The weather played havoc with our meeting efforts in January. Voting members were elected at the makeup meeting on January 11, but the notice was short so we decided to delay the election of officers until our regular meeting on February 1st.
Meeting time is at 6 pm at the Prince George Human Services Building, 6450 Administration Drive, Prince George Government Complex. The meeting is in the Community Meeting room on the 1st floor of the building. The building is ADA compliant and the meeting is open to the public.
Candidates for office to date:
Chair – Carroll Briggs
Vice-Chair – Pete Washington and Tammie Miller Jennings
Treasurer – Juanita Thorne
Note: that nominations will be taken from the floor
Ever Heard of Gerrymandering?
The image below is a depiction of the 15th Virginia Senate District, held by Republican Frank Ruff, whose districts covers most of Prince George County. When we met recently he told me that this district was created by Democrats. It was redistricted in 2011 when the Republicans controlled the process. The drive to Clarksville, where he resides, took this writer almost an hour and a half drive each way. However, Senator Ruff, met with me for over an hour, was very direct, and even paid for the coffee. Thank you, Senator Ruff.
