Metro Richmond Area Young Democrats (MRAYD) today presented a resolution to Senator Tim Kaine, commending him for his service to our Commonwealth and the country.

“Senator Kaine made us incredibly proud campaigning across the nation and becoming known as ‘America’s Dad,’ and this resolution is an expression of our gratitude,” MRAYD President Alexsis Rodgers said. “According to exit polls, Secretary Clinton and Senator Kaine won young Virginia voters by 34 points, demonstrating young people’s endorsement of the values Democrats fight for every day. Now more than ever we need Senator Kaine’s bold advocacy for immigrants, women, young people and all Virginians.”

“I want to thank the Metro Richmond Area Young Democrats for this award and for their hard work in support of policies that will move our country forward,” Senator Kaine said. “I’ll keep fighting in the Senate to help Virginians get ahead and put a stop to President Trump’s policies that would harm our communities.”

The resolution presented today was passed at the Virginia Young Democrats (VAYD) 2017 Convention in Harrisonburg on Saturday, March 18, 2017. Immediate Past President of VAYD Jamie Nolan and members of MRAYD’s 2017 convention delegation presented the resolution to Senator Kaine on behalf of the statewide organization.
