Welcome to 2017! Everyone has their own concerns and fears about where our nation will go after January 20th, but here in Virginia we have a unique opportunity to outshine the incoming president and show the nation that we stand for progress. As written elsewhere, there are three special elections in Virginia on January 10th. If Democrats retain Sen. A. Donald McEachin’s seat, and pick up State Senate District 22, they will achieve a de facto majority vote there. Democratic Candidate for the 22 District — Ryant Washington — is running against two conservative opponents; this means that the traditional Republican voting bloc may split, giving him a real chance at winning!

This unique opportunity has all of us throughout the state mobilizing over the next week-and-a-half to do everything we can to help Candidate Washington win. For those in and around Northern Virginia, here are some opportunities to join that fight:

Senate District 22 canvassing trip; January 2nd 2017 **Tomorrow**

Senator Dave Marsden is arranging a canvassing trip to SD 22nd to help Ryant Washington, former Sheriff for Fluvanna County, on January 2. Leave at 9:30 AM from Fairfax Government Center.  Senator Dave Marsden sponsors lunch, then canvass:

  • Meet at the Fairfax Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax at 9:30 AM
  • Caravan to Senate District 22 (about a two hour drive)
  • Senator Marsden is treating Canvassers to Lunch at Il Castello Italian Restaurant, 47 Market St, Zion Crossroads, VA 22942
  • Canvassing, then return home
  • RSVP to 571-249-3037

Message from Sen. Marsden: “Friends, this is a tough race but it is one that we can win if we all roll up our sleeves and work together. If there is one lesson to learn from Donald Trump being elected President it is that anything can happen.”
