Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin has nominated Andrew Wheeler, former head of the EPA under Donald Trump, to be Virginia Secretary of Natural Resources. This nomination has the environmental community up in arms and Democrats seeking to reject this appointment.

Rep. Donald McEachin has called on the legislature to reject this nominee, saying in a letter, “At the Environmental Protection Agency, Mr. Wheeler sought to minimize the impacts of pollution in the rulemaking process, undo the Clean Power Plan to limit carbon pollution from our energy generation sector, weaken federal vehicle fuel standards, restrict the use of science in the rulemaking process and in protecting public health, and hinder the restoration of Chesapeake Bay by weakening Clean Water Act protections and proposing funding cuts to EPA’s Chesapeake Bay Program of 90 percent.”

Democrats are preparing to fight this nomination. If you are concerned, you are urged to contact our State Senator, Bryce E. Reeves, to encourage him to vote against this appointment.  Contact Reeves at P.O. Box 7021, Fredericksburg, VA 22404, or District Phone (540) 645-8440, or Capitol Phone (804) 698-7517, or Email district17@senate.virginia.gov.

Orange County Democratic Committee Headquarters

111 Chapman Street, Orange

Saturday, December 11, 2021 10:00 am

The Orange County Democratic Committee (OCDC) will reorganize on Saturday, December 11 in accordance with the Democratic Party of Virginia Party Plan. Reorganization of a local Democratic Committee is a two-part process which takes place every other year.  These are the re-establishment of membership and the election of officers.

Since the Orange County Democratic Committee accepts all applicants who profess to be Democrats and are registered to vote in Orange County, a caucus to elect members is not required.  Orange County voters who wish to join the committee, support the principles of the Democratic Party, and participate in the election of officers should file for membership.   In order to participate in the election of officers, Orange County Democrats must file for committee membership before 10:15 am on Saturday, December 11, 2021.
