    A Message from our new Chairperson

     

    Friends and Fellow Fauquier County Democrats,

     

    On behalf of Vice-chair Suzanne Nadeau, Secretary Nigel Ogilvie, Treasurer Melissa Wiedenfeld, and myself, thanks to the members of the Fauquier County Democratic Committee (FCDC) for electing us as the leadership team for 2022-2023. We are excited for the opportunity to work with all of you over the coming two years.

     

    Thanks also to Whitney Petrilli, Larry Jackson, Kathy Marmet, and Colleen Taylor who are stepping down. Their hard work over the past four years for FCDC has made a tremendous difference. Membership in the FCDC has more than doubled and our members’ efforts promote strong Democratic voter turnout. Please give them a pat on the back when you see them, and tell them, “Job well done!”

     

    We are all excited to be a part of the newly-drawn 10th U.S. House District, served by Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton. We look forward to working with other voters in the 10th to keep our new U.S. House District blue this fall! FCDC will soon start an education program across the county, ensuring our constituents are aware of the new federal and state district boundaries, as the recent statewide redistricting affected not only the 10th U.S. House District, but also our districts for the Virginia House of Delegates and State Senate. You can see the new boundaries here:

    The FCDC leadership team is already working together to plan for 2022, building around five central tenets: Organize, Plan, Energize and Engage, Expand our Outreach efforts, and Think Like a Start-up Company. We need to be agile and responsive while taking a long-term approach. If you are not yet a member of the Fauquier County Dems, please consider joining us: you can find the application here: Get Involved - FCDC (fauquierdemocrats.org)

     

    We look forward to meeting the challenges of the coming year. Thanks to those who attended our Biennial Reorganization Caucus, and thanks in advance to all our fellow Fauquier Dems for your work to support our shared goals in 2022. And let’s have fun along the way!

    Max Hall
    Chairperson, FCDC
     

    Here are a few things in the bill that will help working people:

    Creation of hundreds of thousands of good-paying union jobs in the green economy.
    Removal of tax breaks for corporations offshoring jobs.
    A guarantee workers get paid family and medical leave.

     

    More than 865,000 Americans have died!!

    That's more than 1 in 384
    Don't be one or cause one

    95% were unvaccinated

    While cases are much less severe among the vaccinated

    failure to mask and take precautions has led to many cases among them.

    for COVID-19:

    The Delta outbreak is still raging and omicron has come. Almost every single one of the 100 million unvaccinated Americans who hasn't had COVID-19 yet will likely get it in the coming months, short of taking the sort of strong isolation and masking precautions that seem unlikely in the vaccine-hesitant population.

    Volunteer Opportunity

    Governor Northam is calling on more Virginians, with and without medical backgrounds, to volunteer in the fight against COVID-19. The Virginia Department of Health's Virginia Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is looking for roughly 30,000 volunteers to join them in this effort. For more information, click HERE.
     

    Safety Precautions

    The CDC and the Governor have recommended that all Virginians wear face masks if they need to go out in public. This was recommended to help mitigate the spread of this virus. For more information from the CDC about face masks, including how to make one yourself, use this link HERE.

    If you feel that you may have contracted the virus, watch for symptoms such as:
    - Shortness of breath
    - High fever
    - Persistent coughing
    Medical officials across the globe have been advising everyone to take basic precautions to lower the risk of contracting and spreading the virus, such as:
    - Washing your hands often, for at least 20 seconds each time
    - Avoiding close contact with people (staying 6 or more feet apart)
    - Avoiding contact with people who even have just slight symptoms of feeling ill
    - Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
    - Stay at home as much as possible and practice social distancing
    - Cover all of your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, or the inside of your elbow.
    - Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects daily
    Please read the full list of recommendations and news from the CDC by using the link HERE.
