Our job right now:
1) Come together and use our voices— make signs, bring friends!
2) Force the local media to cover the TrumpCare fight—we’ll be sending a press release

This month's Albemarle County Democrats meeting will feature a visit from Lt. Gov Ralph Northam, alongside discussions about our upcoming fundraiser, caucuses, and the primary in June. We'll also be discussing opportunities to get involved throughout the summer, and on to election day.
Join us for a lively discussion and the chance to find out how you can help keep Virginia blue.
5th District Rep. Tom Garrett has been unwilling to meet with his constituents in a public forum to explain why he is continuing to march in lockstep with an increasingly unhinged Trump administration. This coming week is a congressional recess during which members of congress are traditionally expected to hold town hall meetings in their districts. Garrett has refused to schedule any such events, so we’re going to help him out by holding a town hall without him!
Please join Indivisible Charlottesville and other local grassroots organizations to ask the questions that we, as constituents, deserve answers to and to demonstrate, in no uncertain terms, that tolerance of Trump's hateful agenda is unacceptable!

HOW WOULD YOU SHAPE ALBEMARLE'S FUTURE ECONOMY?
A COMMUNITY CONVERSATION HOSTED BY COUNTY
SUPERVISORS DIANTHA MCKEEL AND BRAD SHEFFIELD
Monday, February 6 at 6:00 PM
Northside Library - 705 Rio Rd. West
Albemarle County is facing critical choices about how our approach to economic development should evolve to ensure a vibrant, sustainable economy of the future that reflects community preferences and values. As a county we are grappling with important questions... Are we taking advantage of our strong assets and unique strengths to grow an economy that supports jobs and capital
investment that sustain us as a community? Are we missing opportunities to nurture the start up and growth of desirable local businesses? What kind of business ventures can best flourish within the guidelines of our Comprehensive Plan and generate tax revenues to pay for needed community services? How do we attract and retain the workers we need to keep those businesses successful?
The community is invited to attend this discussion on Monday, February 6 at 6PM at the Northside Library to learn more about the basics of economic development, meet the County's cross functional economic development team, and join the critical conversation about where our future economy should be heading.
The meeting will begin with a short presentation, followed by community discussion moderated by Supervisors McKeel and Sheffield.
