Redistricting: OneVirginia2021

One Virginia 2021 is a bipartisan group dedicated to taking redistricting out of the hands of the party politicians.

We believe in fair, democratic elections, not elections rigged to favor Democrats, Republicans or just incumbents in general.  In order for the public to express their voice, it’s imperative that elections are competitive, and that means that neither party should be able to put their thumb on the scale at redistricting time.

Right now Virginia has several districts comprised of areas which are almost entirely unrelated:

Both parties have done this in the past, and our current map is the result of collusion among incumbents of both parties.

We encourage everyone to support sensible redistricting reform so that the public gets to regain control over their elected representatives.  Please take a moment to look at their website and consider getting involved.

Pictures from our Legislative Dinner

  We had a great time meeting Eileen Bedell, our candidate for the 7th district, hearing her priorities and sharing some fine food!  Thanks to everyone for coming out.

Meet the 2016-2018 Executive Committee

At our reorganization meeting on February 2, Sheila Clark and Sandra Smith stepped forward to offer their time and energy to the committee.  Sheila takes over from James Dallas as our Chair, who graciously found time to fill in for the end of Ken Martin’s last term.

Henry Carter continues on for one more term as our Vice-Chair, for which we are deeply grateful as he’s the keeper of all our institutional memory.

Sandra Smith has stepped forward to act as our Secretary, trying to capture some of Henry and Ken’s institutional memory.

Wayne Reeves continues as our Treasurer and color commentator.
