less than two weeks

This election is happening, it’s less than two weeks away, and right now it isn’t looking good for Democrats.     Friend,   This election is happening, it’s less than two weeks away, and right now it isn’t looking good for Democrats. That’s why throughout the en…

Richmond GOTV

I have less than 24 hours to raise another $3,795 to cover costs for our Richmond GOTV effort. It is absolutely critical that we bring in every penny we can today – so we can achieve the absolute highest Democratic voter turnout possible. This election is less than three weeks away. …

showing up for Terry

With early voting well underway, the fact our Governor’s race is currently considered a toss-up is horrifying. At the end of the day, we will only win if we show up. That’s why I’m going to be at these events for Terry, and you should be too if you can.     Frie…

Terry needs us

The new Emerson Poll released yesterday showed that the Virginia Governor’s race is currently a toss-up between Terry McAuliffe and Glenn Youngkin. This is horrifying. If we hand the keys to our Governor’s Mansion to a Radicalized Right-wing Trump Republican, the future of our commonwealth will…

$155 million dollars for RVA

We have to decide as a city how best to allocate the $155 million Richmond is receiving in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars – so I’m reaching out today to ask for your feedback. I’ve drafted my proposed spending plan, and now I’d like to hear from the people of Richmond. If you would lik…

Progress is rarely something visible to the naked eye. Throughout history we’ve made incremental change through policy, advocacy, and perseverance. Each nudge of the needle feeling victorious yet void of a sense of completion. In the divisive aftermath of George Floyd’s death, I began the remov…

I tend to spend Labor Day thinking about my dad. He worked tirelessly throughout his life to provide for my brother and me, and for that I’m forever grateful. He led by example. He took pride in his work as a custodian and taught me the importance of hard work. I’m sure if he were still around …

I have less than 48 hours to raise $3,895, and right now I need your help. Republicans are pouring resources into 2021 Virginia races because they think they can win. We can’t let them. Keeping a blue majority and a Democratic Governor is absolutely critical to Virginia’s future. The progress w…

Here’s the deal. We now have less than a month until early voting starts in Virginia. That means these next few weeks will be absolutely critical in funding Democrats’ GOTV and voter outreach efforts. These next few weeks will decide whether Virginia stays blue.     …

Right now our country seems to be living in two separate realities. One is based in science, compromise, and reason – and the other one isn’t. As the Delta variant continues to spread like wildfire, we need to do everything in our power to convince the ‘other’ reality that the vaccine is safe, …

a quarter of a billion dollars

Having a quarter of a billion dollars doesn’t make you qualified to be Governor of Virginia – but the GOP disagrees. Donald Trump says that Glenn Youngkin will ‘truly make Virginia great again.’ And right now I’m worried that the national support Youngkin is receiving could result in red wins,…
