At our Monthly Potluck on May 20th, Barbara Lambert accepted the call to be nominated as the new Chair for the Greene County Democratic Committee. She was voted in unanimously at the meeting and a hearty round of applause was given by members present, thanking her for being willing to step up to help our Committee. Barbara thanked the crowd for their vote of confidence in her.
Also elected at the meeting were Mark Heinicke to serve as Precinct Captain of the Swift Run District, and Cathy Sypher and Lynn Larkins to serve as Co-Precinct Captains for the Ruckersville District. Samantha Hansen and Peggy Rush agreed to head up the Potluck Committee and provide set-ups for each potluck. Their husbands, Jim Hansen and Ray Rush will be helping in this effort.
We would also like to THANK Bob Dwoskin for all of his time and efforts while serving as Precinct Captain of the Swift Run District. Happy Travels to Bob and Sue!
We owe all of these good DEMS a big THANKS for being willing to fill these important jobs!

(Date To Be Determined)
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.)
Our first meeting at the Emmanuel Christian Center in Ruckersville VA went very smoothly and was well attended by approximately 40 Democrats. We thank Bishop Jackson, Mary Lee Langley (church secretary) and the Emmanuel Christian Center for their detailed attention to providing for our every need and for the use of their nice kitchen and meeting space. We also thank Gil and Lorraine Zentgraf for their diligent work in checking out the kitchen facilities in advance for a seamless move from Grace Episcopal Church and for making preparations for the meal and providing their delicious dishes to complement dishes brought by members.
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!
