The deadline for filing set at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 2, 2013 having passed, and the number of persons filing for Delegate or Alternate to the Ninth Congressional District Convention being five and only five persons sufficient to meet our delegate allotment, the caucus is cancelled and those five who have filed are declared Delegates and Alternates, pursuant to the rules stated in the Call to Caucus.
Thank you to folks who filed, and to all of our Bristol Democrats who were holding the date on the calendar in case a caucus was needed.
Since we will all be free on May 6th at 7:00, here is where we should be:
Monday, May 6, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. – Since the Caucus is cancelled! – Come out and support Bristol Tennessee Democrats at the Forum! Bristol TN-VA Association of Realtors will host a forum for Bristol TN City Council candidates at the Slater Community Center, 325 McDowell St., Bristol, TN. The forum will feature a segment allowing opponents to question each other. It is open to the public, and of interest to all residents of Bristol.
Border Bash tonight on State Street! 5:30 to around 8:00 the BVDC will be there! Come down and say hello!
The remainder of our calendar remains in effect as sent previously, but the two items below have highlighted updates:
Wednesday, May 8, 2013, at 11:30 a.m. – Terry McAuliffe will be in Bristol! Corner of Moore and Cumberland streets in Bristol, at the Birthplace of Country Music. Come to meet and greet the next Governor of Virginia! The campaign website is at http://terrymcauliffe.com/ .
And very important:
Saturday, May 25, 2013 – Ninth District Convention to be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 25 2013, at the Southwest Virginia 4-H Educational Center, Ratliff Hall Meeting Facility, 25236 Hillman Highway Abingdon, VA 24210. Registration starts at 9:00 a.m. The timing of this convention prior to the primary on June 11th gives an opportunity for the primary candidates to come to the region and meet people from across the district. Please plan to attend if at all possible. I hope that our candidates running in the primary for nomination to Lt. Governor and Attorney General will be there, and the MC of the Convention will be Charniele Herring, the new Democratic Party of Virginia Chair!
Thank you – come see us at Border Bash, and be downtown at Moore and Cumberland on Wednesday to see Terry McAuliffe!
