The recent Republican convention for Occoquan Supervisor which nominated Mike May had 368 delegates. When the Democrats had their caucus for BOCS Chairman and nominated Sharon Pandak, only 257 Democrats attended from the entire county.
Do the Democrats just have a problem getting folks to participate in their nominating activities, or are there just not many active Democrats out there to begin with? Maybe that’s the real reason why Jeff Dion cancelled his phonebanking this evening rather than the “technical difficulties” he cited. It’s kinda difficult to run a campaign without volunteers, and it doesn’t seem like the Democrats have a lot of them in Occoquan when they need to bring Brian Pace of Equality Prince William and Mr. Bouchillon from Centreville in to staff events.
