We Gotta Get Virginia
Charley Conrad, Vice Chair for Elections
On a personal note: It was a great honor to be invited to the Gay Pride Celebration at the White House on Friday June 15th. I got up front and was able to talk with the President. I told the President that I was a Neighborhood Team Leader over in Arlington. The President looked me right in the eye and said “thank you for that” turned back to me and said “we got to get Virginia” and I said “we gonna get Virginia”. It was quite a marvelous moment for me personally.
WE GOTTA GET VIRGINIA !!!
KEEP YOUR PRIDE SHOWING FROM JUNE TO NOVEMBER
June is our Month and things are happening all the time. This is our opportunity to show up and be part of the big solution that will elect our President to another four year term. And Tim Kaine to the U S Senate.
Do your part go to barackobama.com or kaineforva.com and sign up and get involved on a regular basis.
One hour a week is incredibly helpful. The more you can do the more we shine as a constituency group.
If you volunteer please be sure to keep your commitments. As a volunteer coordinator nothing is more frustrating than “no shows”. We make time slots available for folks. If you cannot keep a commitment please call or email the volunteer coordinator.
Let’s Close Out Pride Month in a BIG WAY:
