Local Sanders supporters gathered
Saturday for the opening of an office that will be their focal point for the
upper Shenandoah Valley. Funded and organized locally, the Sanders campaign has
provided signs and literature plus a bit of training, but this effort is
grassroots. The inaugural event: phone banking.
will be used to leverage virtual activities including social media. There is a
plan for weekly coordination gatherings on Tuesday evenings. The enthusiastic
turnout included many from the three contiguous local Democratic Committees. Organizers believe that this may be the first local
Sanders office that has opened in Virginia.
