This endorsement decision – Kenny Boddye for the next Chair of the Occoquan (PW County) Democrats – can’t get any easier or clearer. If you don’t know Kenny, in short he’s a force of nature, one of the most committed and effective Democratic grassroots activists I’ve encountered in recent years. He’s also a passionate progressive, environmentalist, and one of the friendliest people I’ve met in politics (and no, the “in politics” part is not a backhanded compliment). 😉 As an example of what I’m talking about, Kenny lost a Democratic primary this past June but, far from taking his ball and going home, he worked even harder, if anything, to elect his former rival — as well as Virginia Democrats up and down the ticket. That’s not necessarily common in politics, but it’s refreshing and inspiring to see!
With that, I strongly endorse Kenny Boddye for Chair of the Occoquan Democrats and encourage everyone else to support him as well. The election is on December 14 at the Occoquan Dems Reorganization Meeting (7:30 pm at 5 County Complex Ct, Woodbridge, VA). Go Kenny!
