We have a BIG weekend ahead of us. We are launching a statewide "Doors for Deeds" competition this weekend. We are tasked with knocking on 30,000 doors statewide for the Democratic ticket. We want to show to the campaign that Loudoun can really come through. This means a lot!I know how hard it can be to take that first step into volunteering and activism. Knocking on doors seems so aggressive and uncomfortable to many, but it is how elections are won. Think about it this way, how aggressive and annoying would you be if your teacher was giving your kids a bad deal? Or a hospital was denying service to your mother or spouse? These are the issues at hand. School funding and curriculum, health care, these issues are the reason we fight for Democrats. And when we win, it makes a difference.

Here in Virginia, the most reactionary Republican ticket in history wants to turn back the progress of the past eight years. Led by a man who only recently came to terms with the concept of women in the workforce, they will pursue an agenda that will defund our schools, reduce services and push a socially conservative vision for our commonwealth. Stopping that is worth a couple hours of footwork in your neighborhood.
And the good news? Our candidates are worth supporting. Creigh Deeds knows what it means to struggle and succeed, and he has a passion for making sure every Virginian has the opportunities he had. Jody Wagner knows what it means to fix a fiscal mess, and make sure that the things that are important in Virginia, have the money necessary to see them done. And Steve Shannon has made his entire career protecting our kids from predators and criminals.
The fight is here. The time is now. Come out this weekend.
