This week’s virtual Membership Meeting (members, prospective members and guests welcome!) will feature special guest speaker Anthony Flaccavento, farmer, rural development consultant, and former Democratic congressional candidate from Virginia’s 9th District, who will give us a short presentation and discussion on “Understanding and Overcoming the Rural-Urban Divide”. This is a critical issue here in Loudoun and all over Virginia. Visit our Calendar page for the Zoom link – it is in the Meeting Event on Thursday, August 5, at 7:00 PM (networking at 6:30).
The Rural-Urban Divide Guidebook, developed by Flaccavento, may be of interest and can help to prepare for this presentation and discussion.
Congratulations to our Democratic Statewide Candidates!
Congratulations to our Democratic Candidates for the House of Delegates!
Welcome to the Loudoun County Democratic Committee
We are a proud group of individuals who believe the values and policies of the Democratic Party are the key pathways to ensuring every individual has a chance to achieve the American Dream. We believe our neighbors should have a right to affordable healthcare. We believe that a world-class, public education should be available to every child. We believe that no individual should be judged on their race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Last, we believe in a government and economy that works for everyone and provides a social safety net for the less fortunate.
Over the past few years, our committee has assisted in the victories of Democratic candidates at the federal, state, and local levels of government. In Loudoun County, we have three Democratic state senators, seven Democratic House of Delegate representatives, and majority control of the county’s Board of Supervisors and School Board.
In 2020, we helped Joe Biden win Virginia and re-elected Sen. Mark Warner and Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton. We also re-elected Mayor Kelly Burk in the town of Leesburg and made sure she brought two new colleagues with her, Ara Bagdasarian and Zach Cummings.
Loudoun County has come a long way, and we are proud of our new Democratic representatives. But there is much work to be done. We believe America’s greatest strength is best stated by our country’s motto: E Pluribus Unum. Out of many, one. Our country’s and the Democratic Party’s greatest strength is our diversity. We welcome diverse perspectives on issues that we all will confront.
