Note on registering for a Zoom meeting: why are you being asked to register (by some hosts)? Three good reasons: (1) you will immediately get an emailed reply with link to the meeting; that reply is distinct from the other messages you may be getting, making it easier to find when you backtrack through your Inbox; (2) you will get an automated email reminder on the day of the event; (3) the host will know who and about how many are coming and be able to prepare appropriately.

Greene County's Sara Ratcliffe negotiated her way through a tangle of administrative red tape and gathered more than enough petition signatures to qualify to run as the Democratic candidate against conservative Republican Rob Bell in the 58th District race this year.
Bell has held Virginia's 58th District delegate seat since 2002. The district includes all of Greene County and parts of Albemarle, Fluvanna, and Rockingham counties.
As the sole candidate to declare as a Democrat in the 58th District, Ratcliffe will face Rob Bell on November 2nd, 2021.
Many thanks to all who signed Sara's petition both in-person and electronically, and helped get her over the top!

At the Greene County Board of Supervisors meeting on April 27, County Administrator Mark Taylor announced significant progress on bringing broadband Internet to all of Greene County.
The county plans to participate in a project described in a Memorandum of Understanding between several entities, including Rappahannock Electric Cooperative. The project will begin with a feasibility study that will include Firefly Fiber Broadband, the company bringing final-mile service to customers of Central Virginia Electric Cooperative in Nelson County.
In an article in the Charlottesville Daily Progress, Allison Wrabel reported on the broadband initiative with a focus on Albemarle County.
