New Website Tracks Goodlatte

As Bob Stuart reported in The News Virginian, Gene Zitver of Lexington has established a new website, Goodlatte  Watch, to follow the antics of Mr. Ethics as he misrepresents us in Congress.

Zitver said he started the website because he “is just concerned people in the 6th District are not sufficiently aware of [Goodlatte’s] record, his votes and his positions.” – The News Virginian

SAW Presidential Primary Educational Forum

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.
