Metro Richmond Area Young Democrats is excited to announce that seven of our members were elected to Virginia Young Democrats Executive Board positions at the 2018 Convention in Charlottesville last weekend.
We are proud of our chapter’s continued commitment to leadership on the statewide level, and we congratulate the following individuals on their elections last weekend:
- Alexsis Rodgers, President
- Eugene Chigna, Treasurer
- Jamie Nolan, National Committee Representative
- Tavarris Spinks, City/County Chair
- Adam Sachs, Central Region Vice Chair
- Ta’Quan Grant, Teen Caucus Vice Chair
- Ariana Shahidi, Education Caucus Vice Chair
Additionally, MRAYD successfully introduced a constitutional amendment at the convention to make the Virginia Young Democrats national committee position titles gender-inclusive. The positions previously called “National Committeeman” and “National Committeewoman” are now called “National Committee Representatives” and are required to be held by two individuals of different gender identities.
