|“One of the cornerstones of a democracy is that representatives hear from constituents at town hall meetings,” said Abbey Mansfield, a spokesperson for the group and a VA-10 resident. “But, Representative Comstock has never held a single town hall while serving VA-10. So on all days — but especially today as we celebrate America’s birthday and our great democracy — we are out here to demand that Rep. Comstock do her job and to make sure our neighbors know her record.”
In years past, Comstock’s campaign team has been largely unopposed at the Leesburg parade. This year, however, Dump Comstock members were out in force, handing out their own lawn signs, buttons and bumper stickers. Balloons bearing the “Dump Comstock” logo were even made available to parents with small children.
