The Executive Committee of the Charlottesville Democrats met on Thursday, February 28 to discuss the issues surrounding Chris Dumler. After much discussion, the Executive Committee has prepared the following statement:
As Democrats of Charlottesville, we stand for the fair treatment of all, abhor all forms of sexual exploitation and strongly support the Violence Against Women Act. We find it inappropriate for someone who has pleaded guilty to a charge of sexual battery to hold the office of supervisor in our neighboring county. The citizens of Charlottesville and other neighboring communities have a need for Albemarle’s government to function effectively in this closely-knit region. As fellow Democrats we urge Mr. Dumler to heed the counsel of elected officials and community leaders and resign.
