A Message From Our Chair
I have two exciting announcements! Please read and heed --
First, our redesigned website is live, and it sizzles! Please check vbdemocrats.org today for an up-to-date calendar, profiles on all our November candidates, and news posts about key issues. Our thanks go to Carol Maurice, Bill Banis, Mark Vang, Lindsey Terry, and all who’ve had a hand in creating a masterpiece.
Second, and vitally important, The Planning Committee has found a way for us as VB Dems to be open, welcoming, and collaborative with all grass roots organizations and individuals whose ideals we share while maintaining a structure that fulfills our responsibilities under state law and the DPVA Party Plan. I think they’ve gotten the balance exactly right -- voting rights will remain with those of us who commit to full membership, but participation and influence can be extended to a much wider population.
Important: All members only will receive a separate email from us today with the bylaws.
We’ll have a vote on the changes at our VBDC Business Meeting on Sept. 11; we need ⅔ of the full members in attendance to adopt them. Please come ready to discuss and debate!
Dave Belote | Chair
