Attention: Herndon Town Election Voters
Fairfax County Democratic Committee has released a statement regarding a "Misleading Sample Ballot Reported in the Town of Herndon".
Here is FCDC's press release:
Democratic Party Warns Voters of Misleading Sample Ballot Herndon Voters Cautioned About Unofficial Sample Ballots Indicating Inaccurate Party Support for Town Candidates FAIRFAX COUNTY – On Thursday, it came to our attention that a Political Action Committee unaffiliated with the Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC) or the Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA), calling themselves the “Herndon Democrats,” are distributing misleading sample ballots inaccurately indicating a Party endorsement in the non-partisan Town of Herndon elections. In addition, one of the marked candidates on the misleading sample ballot supported last year’s failed, Republican-backed attempt to remove democratically-elected School Board Member Elaine Tholen (D-Dranesville) from office. In response to this news, FCDC Chair Bryan Graham said, “The distribution of such sample ballots is troublesome and confusing to voters. This document purporting to be a ‘Democratic Sample Ballot’ is misrepresenting its affiliation with the Party. Such action intentionally subverts the decision of the actual Democratic Committee to not to endorse in this year’s Town elections.” At its March meeting, the FCDC decided that the local Democratic Party would not be making endorsements in the non-partisan Town of Herndon elections this year. The FCDC is the only official Democratic Party organization for Fairfax County, which includes the Town of Herndon. FCDC members are elected by the Democratic voters of Fairfax County under the auspices of the DPVA Party Plan. Voters can download the official Democratic Party sample ballot at FairfaxVotes.org/MyBallot or pick one up at any early voting or Election Day polling location. #

Delegate Kenneth R. Plum. Algonkian Supervisor Juli Briskman and NoVA Brady Chapter President Martina Leinz spoke on Gun Violence Prevention at the June DAD Breakfast.
Delegate Ken Plum's commentary: "Finding Answers to One of our Geatest Challenges"

https://myemail.constantcontact.com/Delegate-Ken-Plum-s--Finding-Answers-to-One-of-Our-Greatest-Challenges---.html?soid=1101681993512&aid=THt5SVzyRT4

"Virginia made major steps forward addressing the gun violence issue when Democrats controlled both houses of the General Assembly and the governorship. Major laws were passed, including my bill for universal background checks, granting rights to localities to ban weapons in certain places, and one of the earliest state red flag laws. When Republicans took over the House in 2022 there was an effort to roll-back this progress, but that effort was thwarted by the Democrats who continue to control the Senate by a slim margin.
My other observation is that progress on resolving this issue is not made by forceful arguments or effective lobbying. It is resolved at the ballot box by electing people of courage with the will to pass the several laws that are necessary to reduce gun violence."

Dulles Area Democrats Evening Reception for Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton
RSVP: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/07162022

Please join Dulles Area Democrats & Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn at an evening reception in honor of Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton on Saturday, July 16th from 6:00-9:00pm at the Three Creeks Winery in Loudoun County, VA.
Special Guest Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn, 56th Speaker of the Virginia House

Since her election in 2018, Jennifer has fought tirelessly to expand economic opportunity, ensure access to health care, end the opioid epidemic and protect the rights of women and marginalized communities. With redistricting, she faces a difficult reelection campaign in which Democratic values and our House majority are at stake. Our support is essential to ensure she returns to the House of Representatives where she can continue her work to protect Virginians and our Democracy.
Funds raised will benefit Congresswoman Wexton's reelection campaign.
