We embrace the mission and message of the Democratic party that anyone, from any walk of life, should have a fair shot at the American Dream.
We believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.
Our top priority is electing Democrats who share our values and will work hard to represent all of Orange County Virginia.
Voter education, voter registration and voter protection are key to the success of any democracy. We work to protect your right to vote.
Rural and small town Virginia voters matter! And their issues matter. Orange County Democrats work to ensure those issues are addressed by our elected officials and candidates for office.
Our office in Orange is open by appointment during the winter months. Please get in touch with us by email to arrange a time to stop in (email@example.com) or attend our monthly meetings on the second Saturday of each month.
Members and friends are welcome to attend our next monthly meeting to be held at the OCDC office and via Zoom on Saturday, February 11, 2023 at 10am. Our guest speaker will be HOD District 62 candidate Sara Ratcliffe. Sara is the only announced Democrat running for this seat thus far and will provide an update on her campaign, share key info from the legislative session, and will field your questions. Please join us!
The rezoning process for the Wilderness Crossing development in Locust Grove is well underway with meetings of the Planning Commission held on January 5 and January 19 to discuss various aspects of the proposal with the developer and other involved entities. You can read a recap of the January 5 meeting from Don McCown of the Piedmont Environmental Council here. The January 19 meeting focused on the Route 3 buffer zones and green areas. PEC has a comprehensive list of their concerns with the project on their website here,
The Planning Commission will hold their next meeting on February 9 and there is a tentative date for a public hearing on February 16 (subject to change). If you can attend these meetings, please do as they need to see and hear from the public about the significant concerns for this development that have not yet been properly addressed by the developer.
