It seems as though we are never out of election season here in Norfolk. When Ralph Northam was elected Lieutenant Governor last week his seat in the Virginia Senate was opened up. A special election will be held but has not yet been scheduled.
The Democratic Party will be holding a caucus this Saturday, November 16, between 10am and 2pm at Granby High School. Supporters need only show up, vote, and leave. The Democratic candidates are: Paula Miller, Andria McClellan, and Lynwood Lewis.
While all three of the Democratic candidates are smart, capable, and would do well in Richmond, Paula Miller would do best for Wards Corner. Paula has been involved in the effort to revitalize Wards Corner for years. I have met with her on many occasions where we would exchange ideas and discuss progress with our revitalization efforts. Not only does Paula live a few miles from Wards Corner, but she often shops here as well. I am supporting Paula Miller and I encourage you to show up this Saturday at Granby High and support her as well.
On the Republican side, there will be a canvass held from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 21st, 2013 at the Masonic Temple. The Republican candidates are: John Coggeshall, Wayne Coleman, and Richard Ottinger.
