A state update from AARP Virginia’s Bill Ballas:
Last week, a group of our most ambitious advocates from AARP’s Virginia office and the Hanover area went to bird dog former Governor Warner at an event at the Ashland Coffee and Tea in Ashland, VA. As you might expect, most of them arrived early and stayed late, engaging patrons and the former Governor in conversation about health care and financial security. Everyone rallied around the DWF banner, and they easily collected some pledge cards and distributed more than a dozen DWF t-shirts to attendees. (It seems a lot of the t-shirt recipients had already signed our pledge!) We hope that former Governor Warner will sign and return his DWF pledge soon! Until then, you can count on Virginia’s volunteers and Champions-4-Change to keep “bird dogging” the candidates.
