22nd District Info

Good morning fellow Democrats,

As of yet, Kathy Byron is unopposed for the 22nd Virginia House of Delegates seat.  We’d like to change that by coming up with a viable Democratic candidate and we hope you can help.

Prospective candidates must file a Declaration of Candidacy form (attached,) which must be received by the Lynchburg Democratic Committee, P.O. Box 1363, Lynchburg, VA 24505 by 5:00 pm. on May 10, 2017. (Postmark does not apply.) There is a $500 filing fee payable to the Lynchburg Democratic Committee.

An assembled caucus will be held on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at Moneta Public Library Meeting Room, 13641 Moneta Road, Moneta, VA 24121 for the purpose of selecting a Democratic candidate for the 22nd Virginia House of Delegates seat from those who have filed. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m.  The caucus has the prerogative of cancelling the caucus if only one candidate files.

Please see Caucus rules and Call to Caucus, which are attached, and are posted on-line.

I’m sure you all agree that we don’t want to give Kathy Byron a free ride.  Let’s find a good candidate!

Should you have questions, please contact me at eashwell@hughes.net.
