A MESSAGE FROM SARA:
Sara Ratcliffe and her husband, Joe, have lived in Greene County for five years after having spent 25 years in the Washington metro area. A native of the Midwest, Sara comes from folk who grew up in small towns and rural areas very much like much of the 58th. Raised mainly by a single mom, she moved east for university. After graduating GWU in 1994 with a bachelor's degree in US domestic policy, Sara began her professional career in progressive policy and politics working on Capitol Hill and for several prominent national advocacy-centered organizations on tobacco control, preventive health, health access equity, civil rights including religious liberty and reproductive freedom. Along with her professional positions she also served on campaigns from City Council to State Legislature to President in various positions over a span of 20 years. Her commitment to public service and progressive policy, along with her deep belief in serving her community, brings her to ask for your support in her bid for Delegate in the 58th district.
Next steps for the campaign are to line up some help on brand development (logos and look), website development, social media and other digital channels. If you or anyone in your committees are interested to help or have ideas of folks who might be, send them my way! Thank you, thank you and please reach out if you have any questions or need anything further from me.
More to come; with gratitude, -Sara

Greene Co. Democrats Reminder: Remember Why Republican Rob Bell needs to be removed from office in our 58th District. These are only a few of the reasons....
We must unseat conservative Republican Rob Bell, who has been the delegate for our district since 2002. He serves on the Health, Welfare, and Institutions Committee, among others. Remember: this is the guy who sponsored legislation that a woman wanting to end a pregnancy must have a (unnecessary) vaginal-probe ultra-scan before the procedure. And he’s on the Health Committee! Bell supported the voter ID law, and is against felons having the vote. He is a fervent “2nd amendment” guy with an “A” score from the NRA. He supports home-schooling, tax credits for religious school attendance, traditional marriage only, etc.
Bell previously ran unopposed until challenged in 2019 by Greene County’s own Elizabeth Alcorn and in 2017 by Kellen Squire. They each made inroads in this Republican-leaning district and the dynamics here continue to be discouraging for Democrats. But you never know! Let's support Sara Ratcliffe in every way we can!
