Message from the Chairman
Now—in the summer of 2021—Democrats in Page County are focused on the November 2 General Elections. The goal is to continue building on the many achievements of the Northam Administration and Democratic Virginia Legislature over the past few years—expanding healthcare for Virginians, measures to prevent gun violence, passing the Equal Rights Amendment, reducing red tape for small business, greater voter rights, police reform, a massive effort to upgrade internet services throughout the Commonwealth and more.
Page County Democrats recently sponsored three successful Candidate Forums, showcasing the impressive roster of candidates who competed in Primary Elections for the offices of Attorney General, Lieutenant Governor and Governor. And now we’re gearing up to support our party’s nominees: Terry McAuliffe for Governor, Delegate Hala Ayala for Lt. Governor and incumbent Mark Herring for re-election as Attorney General. We also support Emily Scott, who is running against Republican incumbent Todd Gilbert for Virginia’s 15 th District Delegate seat.
One major upcoming event is the Prime Rib Dinner, scheduled for September 11, 2021, at the VFW here in Luray. After the long Covid ordeal, that will serve as a much-needed get-together for Democratic and Independent voters, a chance to meet and hear from our candidates and a fund-raiser to support their campaigns.
But the present moment and upcoming elections are not our only focus. Our ongoing communications program provides the facts and truth about Democratic positions on a wide range of local and national issues. See our posts and videos on Facebook.com/PageCountyDems.
And year in and year out, local Democrats—in coordination with state and federal counterparts—work to improve daily life for citizens here in Page County and for all Americans. That means better job opportunities, technical training and pay; improved quality and affordability of healthcare, mental health services and education (from pre-K through community and four-year college); upgrading to rural broadband; preserving our forests, water and air; and racial justice.
You can make a difference in our community. Please join our efforts.
