This is what I've been saying for quite some time. If Democratic Party of Virginia doesn't make itself stronger and more able to competently execute on relevant goals, then it will find itself (and the smaller, weaker local committees) shut out entirely. This will in turn cause a further imbalance in statewide and local political control (i.e. Dems control statewides and Republicans dominate House of Delegates). We need strong, centralized leadership from the DNC and the state parties.

I want to give a special thanks to Jim Southworth For Democratic Party of Virginia, Vice Chair For Technology. Jim ran a great campaign, and we had a good exchange of ideas over the last month.
