Thank you for your efforts in Fairfax County to elect Democrats. While the national outcome is less than pleasing, we had some bright spots. Our efforts kept Virginia blue for the third presidential election cycle. We stopped a purely partisan effort to add an amendment on Right to Work to our Virginia constitution. While we were unsuccessful in retaking the 10th Congressional District, our support will send a new representative to Washington DC in Congressman-elect Donald McEachin.
It was a very exciting to see so many first time young voters at the polls. They were ready and eager to do their civic duty. We must work very hard to keep our fellow young voters engaged in the process for 2017. As Hillary Clinton eloquently stated, "Please never stop believing that fighting for what's right is worth it". Our team is gearing up to protect our gubernatorial offices in 2017 and we could use your help. Keep in touch with the Fairfax Young Democrats by signing up for our emails, liking us on Facebook, and following us on Twitter. There will many opportunities to fight for our progressive values in Virginia and we need all hands on deck. Thanks for all the work on behalf of our Fairfax County Democratic candidates. It truly was exemplary work.
