2018 will be an extremely important year as there will be elections to replace the retiring Bob Goodlatte in the 6th Congressional District and an election to take back the Congressional seat in the 5th District. The 6th will have a primary for both the Republicans and Democrats while in the 5th, a Democratic candidate will be selected in convention. Please go visit the candidates web sites and learn about their positions. All these candidates need resources to win. Go to their websites and donate. Local individual donations make it possible for them to avoid large corporations and outside money and their undue influence on the election and our candidates.
