Election Update from your CCDC Chair

The outcome of this week’s election gives us much to celebrate:

Congressman Donald McEachin won his seat 4th Congressional District, with the majority of Chesterfield County voters in the 4th finally delivering a win for him within the County.

The outstanding Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger, once the cherished representative for so many of us in Chesterfield, won her new 7th Congressional seat by the largest margin of any of her races. Although our candidate for the 1st Congressional District, Herb Jones, didn't win his race against incumbent Rob Wittman, he ran an admirable campaign, and we were truly honored to support him.

But the most exciting news was the outcome of Mark Miller’s special election for Midlothian Board of Supervisors. He ran in a district that typically would favor a republican candidate, but he won this race with a decisive margin. Congratulations to Mark!

This local victory involved not only having a strong candidate, but also the collective support and effort of so many people. Thank you to our dedicated poll workers, tent wranglers, phone bankers, canvassers, sign posters, meet and greet hosts, and contributors. Your collective efforts helped to elect Mark to this office. I also want to recognize our amazing first vice chair, Amy Towne, for designing, organizing and executing an incredibly effective plan for targeted precinct coverage this year. Local politics is the arena in which we can have an outsized influence, working together to elect capable, competent representatives who will serve our community and stand for Democratic values. We did it this November!

Looking ahead to December, Senator Ghazala Hashmi will join us for our December 6th general meeting at Manchester Middle School to share her perspective on the upcoming 2023 General Assembly session. And, I anticipate that we’ll have a visit from the new Supervisor of Midlothian District.

I feel grateful for the time, energy and presence of each and every one of you who work withsuch determination to elect well-qualified Democrats to public office. We have a big year ahead, but for the moment, let’s bask in these victories.

Larry Barnett, CCDC Chair
