Last weekend the Albemarle Dems hosted a Sunday pre-canvass get-out-the-vote (GOTV) event at Pen Park with Sen. Mark Warner as guest speaker. The Senator was in fine form, flagging the many ways that Democratic policies over the past few years have benefitted Virginians:
- Preserving abortion and reproductive rights
- Infrastructure improvements under Biden (massive job-creating investments)
- Internet access for more people
- Efforts to address climate change and Environmental protection
- Democracy and rule of law (our election systems and Justice Dept withstood Trump’s/Republicans’ lawlessness)
All this progress (and more!) disappears if we lose our razor-thin majority in the Senate; Creigh Deeds’ seat is critical!
Roughly 90 Dems came out to hear his inspiring remarks; they asked questions, took pictures, and then went out to hit lots of doors in the canvass afterwards. Buoyed by the nice weather and provided lunch, spirits and energy were high! Thank you Albemarle Dems chair Karen Combs for organizing this great gathering.
