January 2024 

Dear Lynchburg-area Citizens,                                                                           

 2023 was a busy one for local Dems!   With expanded social events – Dining with Dems, Pints & Politics, Picnic in the Park, Jack’s BBQ – we increased our visibility in the community and added to our membership.  We helped to coordinate strong community response to the City Council, participated in rallies organized by the Voters League to support a fair budget, and had a presence at most Council meetings.  We backed Jennifer Woofter’s campaign, which came within 538 votes within the City of Lynchburg, making Lynchburg increasingly competitive for Democrats.  And we supported the campaign of Donna St. Clair, who ran against the odds for a seat in the State Senate District 8.  We appreciate your volunteer help and support in 2023!   And we will appreciate your continued help this year in what will be the most important election of a lifetime! In 2024 Lynchburg will vote for President, U.S. Senate, the 5th District U.S. Representative, and four members of City Council.

Membership dues in the Lynchburg Democratic Committee are just $10 per calendar year.  Your dues and any additional contribution will help us support:  public monthly meetings, forums, and guest speakers; dues to the State Democratic Party; access to our voter database; voter registration;  maintaining our office for voter and campaign outreach; candidate recruitment; collecting signatures on candidate petitions; transportation to the polls; voter information; yard signs, bumper stickers, and campaign literature; sample ballots; our website and social media presence; voter protection at voting precincts; collaboration with other organizations; and providing candidates with financial support, publicity, door-to-door and phone canvassing.  The LDC office in the Galleria at 915 Main St is frequently used by campaign staff and is critically important for direct contact with voters and volunteers, distribution of campaign material, and a visible presence to provide continuity from one election to the next. 

Please make your 2024 contribution, of which the first $10 will cover annual dues.  Contributions of $100 or less in a calendar year are not made public.  We strongly encourage recurring contributions each month, which currently account for more than half our monthly expenses!  Fill out the membership form and mail it to Lynchburg Democratic Committee, PO Box 1363, Lynchburg VA 24505, or donate through ActBlue, which handles one-time or recurring contributions securely.

Many thanks for your continued support and countless volunteer hours, 

Denise Tuttle, Chair, Lynchburg Democratic Committee
