Attendance is up for the revised monthly breakfast format at our headquarters! The July gathering featured State Board of Elections member Clara Belle Wheeler, who shared an important update regarding efforts to identify and prevent voter fraud (see action item below). Albemarle Board of Supervisors candidate John C. Lowry offered a thoughtful presentation on balanced land use policy and the importance of economic development in our county. We also received a federal legislative update from Congressman Garrett’s legislative counsel Elliott Harding.
Action item: It is critical that the Virginia JLARC (Joint Legislative Audit & Review Commission) audit the Virginia Department of Elections. Please contact our state legislators to ask them to support this effort.
