Congratulations to Neal Osborne, who was sworn in on Monday July 2nd as Bristol Virginia City Council Member! We are proud of Neal and of his successful campaign, and want to thank all of the folks who came out to vote for him. Check out the photo on the Bristol Virginia website!
The June Primary: We are happy to have Anthony Flaccavento as our candidate for Congress in November. That election is November 6th, so mark your calendar now. We need representation for the 9th District in Congress, and we need to elect Democrats. Anthony is traveling around the district, and holding town halls and meet-and-greet opportunities for you. He has provided an excellent calendar of events, so find an event near you. Anthony needs your financial support, your participation, and your vote to defeat a well-funded incumbent in November. Bristol VA and local folks on this newsletter, please attend Anthony’s Town Hall, Abingdon event on Monday, July 16th, 2018, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Dogwood Room at the Community Center of Abingdon. We look forward to a Bristol event to be scheduled soon. Some of you already have yard signs out in Bristol — let us know if you need one!
Regular Calendar for July 2018:

All Democrats registered to vote in Bristol Virginia are welcome, and you are invited to attend even if you are not a member of the committee. (Note: this meeting is regularly scheduled on the second Monday of the month, so you can set a recurring calendar reminder!)
