New Chair Cheryl Zando Welcomes Henrico Democrats
I am honored to have been elected to serve as Chair of the Henrico County Democrats for the next two years. As you know, our work in Virginia is never done. Even though we just recently inaugurated Governor Terry McAuliffe, Lt. Governor Ralph Northam, and Attorney General Mark Herring, we have already begun to work to ensure that Henrico votes to re-elect Senator Mark Warner and Congressman Bobby Scott and defeat Majority Leader Eric Cantor. We are also looking to 2015 when all of our local officials and General Assembly representatives are up for re-election.
Through the generosity of Stephanie Wingate, we also have an incredible opportunity to grow the capacity of our committee. Be it through outreach, increased community engagement, or building our Magisterial District Teams, Henrico Democrats will go into 2014 prepared to develop strategies that will help us win not only these next two years but for many years to come.
At our January Meeting, the newly elected officers and I presented a “State of the Committee” and outlined our vision for the coming year. We also invite you to join us in a Strategy Session later in the month.
As we discuss our future, I challenge you to think about how you’d like to be more involved — What activities are you passionate about? What skills can we put to use? What leadership roles might you take on?
I look forward to leading HCDC, and I encourage you to recommit to strengthening our committee, building our base, and engaging Democrats across Henrico. Together we will keep Henrico blue!
Thank you for all you do,
