Roanoke City Democratic Committee is unveiling our 2017 Slogan, and we’re very excited to offer you a chance to carry it around on your arm. The official Roanoke City Democratic Committee Tote Bag! Available only to RECURRING donors and available only through this link.
(We learned from NPR aka The Best! :P)
The tote bags are union made, union printed, and will have a union bug.
Roanoke City has a proven history of electing Democrats – we have Del. Sam Rasoul representing a large portion of the city in the Virginia House of Delegate, we have Sen. John Edwards representing us in the Virginia Senate. We are proud to have Democrat Sherman Lea as our Mayor, and on the Town Council, we have Vice-Mayor Anita Price and Dr. David Trinkle. In addition, we have constitutional officers Evelyn Powers as City Treasurer, and Sheriff Tim Allen, both of which have elections in November.
We also have some amazing candidates who are running for office in November, and we need to support them. Djuna Osborne – social worker and Women’s March leader running for Virginia Delegate seat in HoD 11, and Melvin Hill, running for a Commonwealth Attorney. Close by, we have Stephen McBride, running in HoD District 8.
What we don’t have is a steady stream of income, and frankly… we need it. We have yard signs to purchase and hand out, we need to be handing over cash to our Democratic candidates, we need to be holding events such as Town Halls and Rallies for our candidates. We need to be canvassing and getting supplies for canvassers at our coordinated campaign office.
And that’s why we are asking you to give the same amount per month you would spend on a cup at Sweet Donkey CoffeeHouse. We have GOT to elect more Democrats in SW Virginia, and campaigns are not cheap.
We’re pretty excited to have swag for our recurring donors. And the best part is – you can give us money even if you don’t live in Roanoke City! That’s right! Democrats up in NoVa can help get SW Virginia Democrats elected by helping fund local committees. I will happily send you a bag no matter where you live. 🙂 After all, we ALL want to get our donkeys to the polls!
