Here in the central valley the Staunton, Augusta County, and Waynesboro Democrats held an educational forum last week with representatives of the two Democratic candidates: Terry O’Neill, President of NOW and Dr. David RePass, Professor Emeritus, University of Connecticut acted as campaign surrogates.
For those who are still considering how they will cast their ballots, this discussion may provide a closing argument. For others it may only reinforce their choices. Nevertheless, it was an evening where all agreed that what matters most is that a Democrat sits in the Oval Office a year from now.
Tonight the Democratic Committees of Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County are sponsoring a forum for those planning to vote in the Super Tuesday Primary on March 1st. There will be three names on the ballot, but Governor O’Malley has suspended his campaign, so this forum features representatives from the Clinton and Sanders Campaigns:
Terry O’Neill, President of The National Organization for Women (NOW), an attorney and a professor will be the speaker for the Clinton Campaign.
David E. RePass, an emeritus professor of political science at the University of Connecticut, will be the speaker for the Sanders Campaign.
The event will be held at the White Star Tavern in Staunton on Thursday, February 25th from six to eight pm. The campaign representatives will be invited to address the attendees around seven pm. After both have spoken, there will be an opportunity for questions of them.
Wishing you peace, joy, and all the best this wonderful holiday season has to offer. May this incredible time of giving and spending time with family and friends bring you happiness that lasts throughout the New Year.
