|As many of you know, VCOM’s own Jim Cannon is stepping into the political arena and running for the open seat in 63rd District of the Virginia House of Delegates. This would not only give us another motorcycle friendly legislator in Virginia, it would give us another actual rider.
Last week speaker Howell set the special election for January 6, 2015. The deadline to register to be on the ballot is Dec 3, 2014 by 5:00 PM. Because Jim is running as an independent, in order to register to be on the ballot he needs 125 signatures from registered voters that reside in the 63rd District. The 63rd District includes the City of Petersburg, the Matoaca and Ettrick areas of Chesterfield County, and a large portion of north-western Dinwiddie County.
If you live in the 63rd District and would like to help get Jim on the ballot, please contact him at (804) 314-9071. If you have friends or family who live in that district have them contact him as well. You may also email him at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you are not sure whether or not you live in the 63rd District you may go to http://whosmy.virginiageneralassembly.gov/ and enter your address.
