At our January Full Committee meeting we welcomed Laura Shea from Clark Precinct as a member of the Full Committee and also got to meet the UVA Dems’ new President Vincent Kloes (firstname.lastname@example.org); we’re looking forward to working with both of them!
Two significant changes to announce, much to our regret:
- This month Anne Hemenway announced her resignation from the Charlottesville Electoral Board. Anne has served with great distinction for eight years, tirelessly working with her Democratic and Republican colleagues alike to keep our electoral system working efficiently and fairly for all. We owe Anne a huge vote of thanks for this dedicated service. Jim Nix, who has finished his own 3-year term, will serve out the last year of Anne’s term, after which we’ll need to nominate a new Democratic member to serve on the Board.
- Dashad Cooper announced his resignation as our Co-Chair in order to pursue elected office in the House of Delegates. We thank Dashad for his excellent service keeping things running smoothly, including handling most of the diplomatic outreach work needed to expand our party.
