9th Congressional District Democratic Party Candidates

Our March 17 meeting was successful with 18 people attending. We heard from 9th Congressional District candidates.

Jim Worth spoke first....

Then, Anthony Flaccavento...

Both candidates answered some tough questions on foreign policy, veteran affairs, energy, economic development, social security as well as campaign strategies.Everyone seemed excited about the two candidates.

Next, the Giles County Democratic Party will have a caucus on April 21 to elect delegates to the 9th Congressional District Convention to be held on May 19. It's important because the delegates at the Convention will select the candidate for the 9th Congressional District. Look for details in the April 11 issue of the Virginian Leader.
