Tuesday night, from Richmond Crusade for Voters email announcement:
October 13, 2011
We were enlightened by the Candidates Forum and the Research Committee has interviewed and drilled the Candidates on various issues. Now it is time for the membership to take part in the Endorsement of Candidates.
This year, the membership asked me to invite candidates from Chesterfield and Henrico and many of their schedules allowed them to participate. The invitation was extended to them to come to our membership meeting.
All persons who have met the full voting criteria of 3 membership meetings and paid dues of $10.00 will be eligible to vote. The October membership meeting will be counted towards eligibility for the number of meetings attended. Our calendar year is January to December.
The meeting will be held at the Military Retirees’ Club, 2220 Chamberlayne Avenue at 7:00 p.m. October 18, 2011.
A reminder: Annual membership dues are $10.00. Your membership includes: a special membership card, full voting privileges and invitations to RCV, Inc. events. The Crusade is also accepting donations to support our work and all donations are greatly appreciated.
“You must attend at least three meetings and have your dues paid to be eligible for full voting privileges”
Each one, Reach one. There is power in numbers.
Sylvia C. Wood, President
