Message From Jeff




Greetings!

I have had an incredible weekend that I wanted to share with you.

I found myself with a few spare moments on Saturday and drove up Rt. 56 from Route 11. Passing through Vesuvius and winding up the mountain towards Nelson, I stopped for a minute alongside the road and looked at one of the most beautiful views I had ever seen. From my vantage, the mountains framed the scene perfectly and I was once again reminded at how beautiful our home is. Whether it's Madison Heights or Effinger, Middlebrook or Monroe, Brownsburg or Clifford, Glasgow or Goshen we call home, we are truly blessed.

On Sunday, I had a chance to attended church with a new dear friend at First Baptist in Buena Vista. Even though it was my first time there, I was welcomed with opened arms. I made new friends, shared my own faith with the congregants, and worshiped among people united in common beliefs and values.

Later I had the opportunity to discuss issues regarding education, transportation, and getting folks back to work with old friends and new. We discussed how we could make Virginia the leader in a new energy economy, one that is built on the ingenuity and entrepreneurship that has made our commonwealth great for over four centuries. I realized that I've been blessed with an opportunity to do something that can make a real difference in people's lives.

I have been blessed. I've been blessed to be born here to a great family. I've been blessed to have been raised on a farm and still call it home. I've been blessed to be married to the most wonderful woman in the world for nearly a decade, and I've been blessed with two incredibly perfect children. I've been blessed to help build an amazing business, and have a close relationship with my family. We've been blessed to make a difference in the lives of folks who want to care for their historic properties or want to make a difference in the environment. And I'm blessed to have some of the finest people working with us on this campaign that I've ever known.

And I am blessed to be running for Delegate and I hope I will be blessed with the chance to make Virginia a better place. I know, with your help, we can win.

We are facing a crucial deadline on Tuesday night at Midnight. We have set a goal of raising $5,000 before then and I need your help to do it. CONTRIBUTE NOW to help us reach our goal. Whether you can give 5 bucks or 500, I am blessed to have your support.

Your help is appreciated.

Best,

Five Oaks







If You're Looking for The Town of Five Oaks



Amherst County was formed in 1761, from parts of Albemarle County. The county was named for Sir Jeffrey Amherst, known as the "Conqueror of Canada". Jeffrey Amherst was named Governor of Virginia, although he never came to the colony. Native Americans were the first humans to populate the area. They hunted and fished mainly along the countless rivers and streams in the county. With the establishment of the Virginia Colony in 1607, English emigrants arrived in North America. By the late 1600s English explorers and traders traveled up the James River to this area. Early trading posts formed between 1710 and 1720. By 1730, many new families moved into the land currently known as Amherst County drawn by the desire for land and the good tobacco-growing soil.

In 1761, Amherst County was formed from the southern half of Albemarle County. The original county seat had been in Cabelsville, now Colleen in what would later become Nelson County. The county was named for Sir Jeffrey Amherst who commanded the British forces that successfully secured Canada from the French. In 1806 the county assumed its present proportions when Nelson County was formed from its northern half. At that point, the county seat was moved to the village of Five Oaks, later renamed Amherst.

In the early days, the major crop raised in Amherst County was tobacco.   Apple orchards were part of mixed farming that replaced tobacco, especially in the late 19th century. Timber, mining and milling were also important industries. The introduction of the railroad in the late 19th century greatly influenced the county's growth.

                                                                                                                                                    ACVDN
The county contains many good examples of 18th, 19th and early 20th century rural and small town architecture. The downtown area of Amherst is a classic example of early 20th century commercial architecture, notice this soon as changes are taking place.


According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 479 square miles (1,240 km²), of which, 475 square miles (1,231 km²) of it is land and 4 square miles (9 km²) of it (0.75%) is water.


So there you go, Five Oaks has faded into history and in her place stands the town of Amherst.

Greetings!




I wanted to share a bit of personal news with you this week. Just over two years ago, I was standing outside my businesses' warehouse, talking with an old friend from Lexington when I was told that my wife, Laura, was on the phone for me; I casually picked up. Less than 8 hours later, I found myself the proud father of Jackson Campbell Price, a perfect baby boy.




I wonder, in 2019, when my son is 12, what will Virginia look like? Will Jackson be sitting in an overcrowded classroom with an overworked and underpaid teacher? Will the General Assembly finally come up with solutions to our transportation crisis, or will we be traveling on overstressed roads and bridges that are at least 10 years or more due for repair or replacement?




Will we still be playing partisan politics with redistricting and allowing mapmakers to draw safe districts for incumbents, or will we have a democratic and fair system in place? Will the area my family has called home for 200 years be the benefactor of a new energy economy with good paying jobs for working-class Virginians?




For me, my candidacy is personal. It's about taking care of the Commonwealth that has been so good to my family and my business, while helping us to reach our full potential for the future. If elected, I'm going to work tirelessly to make sure all Virginians, as well as my friends and neighbors, have access to the best opportunities available. That is a promise I do not take lightly.




My daughter, Olivia, will start school soon and Jackson isn't far behind. I will not rest until I know I have worked my hardest to provide them with the best education possible, taught by the best teachers in the nation. I want to ensure that they have opportunities here at home once they graduate, so they don't feel they must go out of our state to have a good paying job and satisfying career. I know we must support our small business owners, by allowing them to succeed on a global level. I will pledge to find solutions without raising taxes on hard working Virginians.



I love our commonwealth and it is my passion to make it the best it can be.




I have 70,000 reasons for running; two of them are named Olivia and Jackson.




With your help, I will have the honor to represent the 24th District in the House of Delegates.




Sincerely,





Jeff Price
Candidate Virginia's House of Delegates

Jeff and Laura




Jeff Price was born and raised in Central Virginia, and with the exception of a few years, has lived in Amherst County his whole life. He grew up knowing the meaning of hard work.

From the age of six, every summer and Saturday morning was spent with his father, a small businessman and bricklayer, on his jobsites. As he got older, he moved on to carrying block and mortar before leaving Amherst to go to school at Virginia Tech. Jeff came back after 2 years at Tech to go back to work in the family business, and through the efforts of his father and the "next generation," a decent small business, Virginia Lime Works, was born. Over the past 10 years, Virginia Lime Works has grown to be a worldwide leader in the field of Historic Preservation, and they are now branching out into new innovative ways of healthier, ecologically friendly building construction. Jeff is a recognized instructor, speaking and lecturing throughout the United States on traditional masonry construction. Over the past few years he has organized international workshops and has spoken on behalf of tradesperson awareness, education, and enhancement in both the US and in Europe.

Jeff is actively involved in the church where he was baptized and raised, Bethany United Methodist in Monroe. He is the youngest member of the Rotary Club of Amherst, a civic organization with the motto of Service before Self. He is also the President of the Board of Directors of Endstation Theatre Company, a local theatre company that promotes bringing both classic and new, original, locally based productions to Central Virginia.

Jeff and his wife Laura have been married since 2000, are the very proud parents of two wonderful children, Olivia (4 in January) and Jackson (2 in June).

Laura Walters Price may be known as Laura to her friends, Mrs. Price to her students, or Jeff's wife in the preservation community, but the name she is most honored to be called is Momma to Olivia and Jackson.

Laura's roots to Virginia are a little further south than the 24th district.

Her mother grew up in the small southwest Virginia town of Appalachia where Laura spent many weekends and the family continues to gather for the holidays. Laura grew up in Johnson City, TN and moved to Amherst when she became a student at Sweet Briar College. It was there that she met Jeff and they have been together ever since.

Laura holds a bachelors degree from Sweet Briar and a Masters degree in Education from Lynchburg College. She is also a member of the Amherst and Virginia Education Associations. She is currently in her 8th year of teaching for Amherst County Public Schools and teaches Special Education at Central Elementary on Route 60.

This is also the first time I can address you officially. With the conclusion of our call to caucus I officially became the Democratic Candidate for the 24th District on May 30th.

Our Headquarters will be opening up soon and we've got a new number for folks in the western half of the District: (540) 319-4028. Our regular newsletter will be coming soon. We've got a great team for victory come November and I think we've got the best team for moving the Commonwealth forward.

I am honored to be your Democratic Candidate for the 24th District House of Delegates seat.

Thank you,


Jeff, Laura, Olivia and Jackson

Veterans

                                                                               Amherst County Virginia Democratic News



Creigh Deeds believes that we must honor our veterans with action and not just words. That’s why he has been standing up for our veterans for 18 years in the legislature. We can never repay our service men and women for their sacrifices, but we can honor them with the quality health care and benefits they have earned.


As Governor, Creigh will fight for veterans by:


Cutting red-tape: After fighting our wars abroad, the last thing we should do is force our veterans to fight bureaucracy here at home. It’s unacceptable that veterans must wait one year on average for their benefit claim to be processed. As Governor, Creigh will streamline the process by funding TurboVet, an online filing system, so that our service men and women can receive the benefits they have earned.



Health care for veterans: As Governor, Creigh will work with President Obama and the entire Virginia congressional delegation to fight for quality health care for our veterans. He will also support Virginia’s Wounded Warrior program to provide treatment for veterans suffering from post traumatic stress




Supporting our military families: An entire family sacrifices when a loved one is deployed. The Military Families Relief Fund helps the families of deployed Guardsmen and Reservists make ends meet. Creigh will fight to make these disbursements tax-free to help offset the financial burden on our military families.



Tax relief for disabled veterans: Earlier this year, Creigh supported legislation to provide tax relief for disabled veterans across Virginia. As Governor, he will fight to ensure that this becomes law.

Natural Resources




Preserving Virginia’s Natural Beauty
ACVDN
"I've spent my life protecting our environment and preserving our precious natural resources. We have a duty to ensure that future generations can enjoy clean air, clean water, and the beauty of Virginia's outdoors." -Senator R Creigh Deeds

From his experiences at Douthat State Park-where he was a summer ranger in his youth-to his fight to clean up the Kim-Stan Landfill, Senator Deeds has been a leader in preserving the environment. He believes that we all have a responsibility to be good stewards of our natural resources and that we need to address the fundamental moral issue of our generation: the pollution of our air and water and destruction of our climate.

Senator Deeds' environmental priorities are clear: preserve our environment, provide incentives for home and business owners who conserve energy, and invest in a greener future. Virginia can lead the way to an energy independent America, but only if our next Governor has the experience and vision to deliver results.

In 1999, when Virginia ranked last in the nation in per capita expenditures for natural resources, Senator Deeds led the way in preserving Virginia for future generations. That year Deeds wrote and passed Virginia's land preservation tax credit program-one of the most progressive environmental protection laws in the country. Since its passage, more than 100,000 acres have been preserved.

The land preservation tax credit program continues to help preserve Virginia's natural beauty. The program has even helped Governor Kaine towards his goal of preserving 400,000 acres by 2010.

The Democratic Party is committed to keeping our nation safe and expanding opportunity for every American. That commitment is reflected in an agenda that emphasizes the strong economic growth, affordable health care for all Americans, retirement security, open, honest and accountable government, and securing our nation while protecting our civil rights and liberties.



Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is the 44th and current President of the United States.   He is the first African American to hold the office.   Obama previously served as a United States Senator from Illinois, from January 2005 until he resigned after his election to the presidency in November 2008.
                                                                                                                                        ACVDN
A native of Honolulu, Hawaii, Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was the president of the Harvard Law Review.   He was a community organizer in Chicago before earning his law degree.   He worked as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004.

Obama served three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004.    Following an unsuccessful bid against a Democratic incumbent for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, he ran for United States Senate in 2004.    Several events brought him to national attention during the campaign, including his victory in the March 2004 Democratic primary and his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004.    He won election to the U.S. Senate in November 2004.    His presidential campaign began in February 2007, and after a close campaign in the 2008 Democratic Party presidential primaries against Hillary Rodham Clinton, he won his party's nomination.    In the 2008 general election, he defeated Republican nominee John McCain and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009.

As president, Obama signed economic stimulus legislation in the form of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in February 2009 and the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 in December 2010.      Other domestic policy initiatives include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010.    In foreign policy, Obama gradually withdrew combat troops from Iraq, increased troop levels in Afghanistan, and signed an arms control treaty with Russia.    


In October 2009, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

The real life soap opra drags on and on. At every opportunity the supervisors inform us that they want to get the real story out. The story keeps growing and taking new turns as it is retold and now resembles in no way the original explaination. What on earth is behind this strange lack of confidence vote and elimination of Rodney Taylors job? The web is surely tangled and we the citizens are decieved. Such a shame since all we want is for our county officials to work in harmony and in the best interest of the county in an open and transperant manner. As the story now goes it includes private lawyers and I suspect soon a creative writing team to beef up the plot. Please Guys, Stand Up and do the Right Thing and do it Now, without further delay.

FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA


When people ask Michelle Obama to describe herself, she doesn't hesitate. First and foremost, she is Malia and Sasha's mom.


But before she was a mother — or a wife, lawyer, or public servant — she was Fraser and Marian Robinson's daughter.

The Robinsons lived in a brick bungalow on the South Side of Chicago. Fraser was a pump operator for the Chicago Water Department, and despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at a young age, he hardly ever missed a day of work. Marian stayed home to raise Michelle and her brother, Craig, skillfully managing a busy household filled with love, laughter, and important life lessons.


A product of Chicago public schools, Michelle studied sociology and African-American studies at Princeton University. After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1988, she joined the Chicago law firm Sidley & Austin, where she later met the man who would become the love of her life.


After a few years, Michelle decided her true calling lay in encouraging people to serve their communities and their neighbors. She served as assistant commissioner of planning and development in Chicago's City Hall before becoming the founding executive director of the Chicago chapter of Public Allies, an AmeriCorps program that prepares youth for public service.

In 1996, Michelle joined the University of Chicago with a vision of bringing campus and community together. As associate dean of student services, she developed the university's first community service program, and under her leadership as vice president of community and external affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center, volunteerism skyrocketed.


As First Lady, Michelle Obama looks forward to continuing her work on the issues close to her heart — supporting military families, helping working women balance career and family, and encouraging national service.


Michelle and Barack Obama have two daughters: Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7. Like their mother, the girls were born on the South Side of Chicago.

Jody Moses Wagner


Jody Moses Wagner (born August 1955 in Canton, Ohio) is an American politician from Virginia Beach, Virginia. A Democrat, she served as state treasurer of Virginia January 2002–January 2006 and Secretary of Finance January 2006–August 2008. She was an unsuccessful candidate for United States House of Representatives in Virginia's 2nd congressional district in 2000. She is the nominee for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia in the 2009 election.

Wagner received a B.A. in economics from Northwestern University in 1977, and a J.D. from Vanderbilt University in 1980. She was admitted to the bar in Tennessee in 1980 and in Virginia in 1984. Prior to joining state government, she worked for about 18 years at the Norfolk law firm Kaufman & Canoles, specializing in securities and banking law. She has been a board member of the Norfolk Foundation and the Sorenson Institute for Political Leadership. She is a former president of the Jewish Family Services of Tidewater and former board member of the Eastern Virginia Medical School.

In September 2005 Wagner and her husband, Dr. Alan Wagner, an ophthalmologist, began a side business making gourmet popcorn.

In 2000 Wagner was the Democratic nominee in Virginia's 2nd congressional district following the retirement of Democratic Representative Owen B. Pickett. She lost the race to Republican Ed Schrock, a state senator, despite roughly matching Schrock in fundraising and showing unexpected strength in a Republican-leaning district.

In January 2002, Governor Mark Warner appointed Wagner Treasurer of Virginia, an office within the Secretariat of Finance. During her tenure, she was elected President of the National Association of State Treasurers.

In January 2006 incoming Governor Tim Kaine appointed Wagner Secretary of Finance. She was succeeded as state treasurer by deputy state treasurer Braxton Powell.

Wagner resigned as Secretary of Finance effective August 8, 2008, and was succeeded in that post by state budget director Richard D. Brown. A week later, on August 15, she announced her candidacy for lieutenant governor in the 2009 election. She won the June 9, 2009 primary.

Robert Creigh Deeds


                                                                                                                ACVDN

Robert Creigh Deeds (Creigh, pronounced /ˈkriː/; born January 4, 1958) is an American politician, and is currently the Democratic nominee for Governor of Virginia. He was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates from 1992–2001 and has served in the Senate of Virginia since December 2001. Deeds was the 2005 Democratic nominee for Attorney General of Virginia, losing to Republican Bob McDonnell by 323 votes.

Deeds was born on January 4, 1958 in Richmond, Virginia. His family, however, moved early in Deeds' life to Bath County. Deeds' middle name is pronounced "Cree".


After graduating from high school, Deeds enrolled in Concord College, graduating in 1980. Next, Deeds entered the Wake Forest University School of Law from which he received his JD in 1984. In 1987, only three years after finishing law school, Deeds was elected Commonwealth's Attorney of Bath County after defeating the incumbent with more than 65% of the vote, beginning a long political career.

Deeds won election to the Virginia House of Delegates 1991 by defeating incumbent Emmett Hanger in a 57%-41% victory. This started a nine-year career in the Virginia House of Delegates.


In the House of Delegates, Deeds introduced several legislative proposals, including introducing Megan's Law to the Virginia General Assembly, which was passed in 1998. Other legislative accomplishments promoted by Deeds include environmental protection and anti-drug laws.

Deeds won election to the Senate of Virginia in 2001 after the death of Emily Couric due to pancreatic cancer. After Deeds' victory, he embarked on a spree of legislative accomplishments.


During Deeds' Senate tenure, legislation that Deeds proposed includes:
SB150 - Requires that direct recording electronic devices be equipped to produce a contemporaneous paper record of each vote that can be verified by the voter and used in recounts. (2006)SB891 - Requires the board of visitors of each public two-year and four-year institution of higher education to provide reduced in-state tuition rates for the children of faculty and staff members employed by the institution, effective for the 2008-2009 academic year. (2007) Not enacted, rolled into SB982 and left in the Senate Finance Committee. SB34 - Increases the mandatory retirement age for judges from age 70 to age 75. (2008)

SB669 - Permits ABC agents to check the national criminal database when conducting background checks on prospective licensees. (2008)

Deeds was also a proponent of a Senate resolution to close a Virginia "gun show loophole," making public appearances to generate support for the measure.

To date, the only election Creigh Deeds has ever lost was to his 2005 Attorney General opponent Bob McDonnell.

Deeds presents himself as a moderate Virginia Democrat.

In 2005, Deeds and John Edwards—a Virginia state senator from Roanoke—each announced that they planned to run for Attorney General of Virginia in the Democratic primary. Edwards later decided not to run, leaving Deeds as the Democratic nominee for the office. As such, Deeds was left to face Republican Bob McDonnell in the November general election.

In the campaign, Deeds presented himself as a moderate Democrat, supporting gun rights, strong punishment for criminals, and the death penalty. Senator Deeds is pro-choice, although he has professed opposition to partial birth abortions. Deeds' stance on gun rights earned him the endorsement of the NRA. However, the McDonnell campaign outspent Deeds by almost three million dollars (McDonnell spent $5,962,067 to Deeds' $3,103,585).

The initial result of the vote was 49.96%-49.95%, with Deeds behind by fewer than 350 votes. Due to the closeness of the race's outcome, Deeds announced that he would ask for a recount. Judge Theodore Markow of Richmond set the recount for December 20, 2005, a date so close to the inauguration that invitations to the event were mailed without a name for the Attorney General to be inaugurated. The recount reaffirmed the earlier outcome, and McDonnell became Attorney General.

Deeds announced his intention to seek the Democratic nomination for governor on December 13, 2007. At the end of a close three-way race against former DNC chair Terry McAuliffe and former State Delegate Brian Moran, Deeds surged to a landslide win, taking just under 50% of the vote in the June 09, 2009 Democratic Primary.

Here's a message from Jeff Price.

Greetings!


I just wanted to send a quick e-mail to let you all know that after an intense primary season, we officially have nominees for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General.


R. Creigh Deeds, "the Barefoot Boy from Bath", a long time public servant who has put the needs of Virginia first and foremost his entire career, who has had the pleasure of serving parts of the 24th in the past as Delegate and continues to serve parts of the 24th as State Senator, is our party's nominee for Governor.


Jody Wagner, small businesswoman, former State Treasurer under Governor Warner, and former Secretary of Finance under Governor Kaine is our party's nominee for Lieutenant Governor.


Steve Shannon, who has represented the 35th District (Fairfax) in the House of Delegates for the past five years and co-founded with his wife Abby the AMBER alert system in 2001 in the DC Metropolitan Area, is our party's nominee for Attorney General.


This is also the first time I can address you officially. With the conclusion of our call to caucus I officially became the Democratic Candidate for the 24th District on May 30th.


Our Headquarters will be opening up soon and we've got a new number for folks in the western half of the District: (540) 319-4028.

We've got a great team for victory come November and I think we've got the best team for moving the Commonwealth forward.
