At the Harrisonburg Democratic Committee’s Memorial Day weekend fundraiser, a “heckler” intervened at the end of Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring’s speech to call for Herring’s facilitation of a Stop Work Order for the ongoing ecological disaster in Southwest Virginia known as the Mountain Valley Pipeline.
That “heckler” was me, and I stand by my action. I’d like to call for Valley residents and Democrats, purportedly dedicated to environmental protection, to join the call for accountability.
Additionally, it’d be of great value for Harrisonburg Democrats to decide whether it’s acceptable for a chairperson to attempt to physically remove a 26th District voter from the room for speaking up. Will HDC continue to stifle dissent, or will they join in holding elected officials like Herring accountable and strengthen the party?
