Susan Donner has been elected as our correspondence secretary.

We had two guest speakers, Joe Elliot and Herman Ward. Mr. Elliot and Mr. Ward’s wife, Ella Ward, will be in the primary to be the Democratic challenger to Randy Forbes in the election for U.S. Congress, 4th Congressional district. Mr. Elliot is running as the “Average Joe”, a small business man and a minister who feels it’s time for a non-politician to represent Virginia. Mrs. Ward has a long history of public service including serving in Chesapeake’s educational system and as a representative of the people of Chesapeake in the city council. Two great candidates for the people of Virginia’s 4th to choose from.
