Greene County Democrats invite the public to attend our Sunday evening Potluck on each 3rd Sunday of the month at the Emmanuel Christian Center.
(Location: 111 New Life Drive,
Ruckersville, VA, directly across
from Tractor Supply on Rt. 33.)
Samantha Litchford, Field Organizer, Kaine Campaign
Barbara Lambert, Chair of the Greene County Democratic Committee, called the meeting to order and introduced Samantha Litchford, Tim Kaine’s Field Organizer for our area. Barbara thanked Samantha Hansen, Jim Hupp, Peggy Rush, and Ray Rush for getting potluck supplies and setting up the church hall. John McCloskey and Colleen Green were thanked for their many months of setting up for potlucks at Grace Church. She also thanked Bill and Kathy Sypher for bringing pastries and coffee to our Tuesday coffee meetings and hosting a meeting earlier this month to discuss the Cockburn campaign. She thanked Ted Crackel for writing a letter to the GCR Editor in response to an earlier letter stating Leslie Cockburn was anti-Semitic.
Colleen Green, Vice Chair, spoke about the passing of our member Henry Molumphy in a kind remembrance. Colleen also passed out a 5th district map to demonstrate the size and scope of the district. As a follow-up to the 5th District meeting Colleen attended, yard signs will be provided at no charge; 4X6 Cockburn/Kaine signs will be $20-25 each. Members need to send to Colleen ideas on good locations to place the large signs. The Central Committee meeting reminded everyone the nation’s eyes are on VA since we elected an all Democrat Executive branch in 2017 and the largest number of Democratic state delegates. She reminded us that 5 women had won primaries and will be facing Republican House of Representative candidates in the 2018 elections. Colleen asked for a volunteer to fill the vacant Vice-Chair position to help coordinate the precinct captains, help with canvassing training and help the other elected officials.
We have been advised by Doug Miller,
our Democratic Representative from the Greene County Board of Elections, to check your Voter Registration information frequently from now until the election. He said that individuals need to check to see if their information has been tampered with. He further statedthat the State of Virginia has been working hard to make sure our voter information is secure and is paying close attention to possible meddling with registrations, but everyone should monitor their registration and report any suspected abuses. If you check your registration and notice anything suspicious, the Greene County Board of Elections can be reached by calling 434-985-5213 or by stopping by their office in the Town of Stanardsville, located at 32 Stanard Street behind the Courthouse. You can check your own voter information online by entering a few items...name, birthday, etc.!
Virginia Elections Officials Warn of Groups "Confusing Mailers" about Registration Status
The Virginia Department of Elections says it has received numerous phone calls from concerned voters who had received “confusing mail” suggesting that their voter registration status was in question.
The mailers did not come from state elections officials. They came from the Voter Participation Center, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization — unaffiliated with government — that says it seeks to register “under-represented Americans,” specifically unmarried women, people of color and millennials.”

Sign up to receive updates from the Greene County Democratic Party
Even as a small group, we have the everyday expenses of running our organization.....rental expenses for our group meetings space, printing costs, supply purchases, bumper stickers, etc. Our very BIGGEST expense, that most people don't realize, is the cost of campaign signs that are displayed in our county for any election. Our local Democratic Committee must pay for the smaller yard signs as well as the larger billboard type signs. They all are very expensive. Unlike other parties, we don't get monetary help from the state or national level. We need to make a HUGE difference in 2018 by turning out voters in big numbers on election day.
Let’s make a GIANT BLUE WAVE in Greene County!
WON'T YOU PLEASE CATCH THE GIANT BLUE WAVE WITH US!
