Lifelong resident of Dickenson County Virginia in far Southwest Virginia who has been active in the GOP since my early teens. My family has a long history of being involved in conservative politics. Members of my immediate and extended family have served as Dickenson County Commissioner of Revenue (myself having also served in that office and on the Clintwood Town Council), Board of Supervisors, Commonwealth Attorney, School Board and Circuit Court Judge.
Happily married for 36 years to my wife Pat who is a physician. Two children, one daughter and one son.
I have genuine concerns for the future of my country and my party and that is one reason I decided to join this site. Networking with others who share the same concerns will give me at least some comfort in knowing I'm doing a very small part to address the fears and concerns I have. If nothing else maybe I'll find someone to at least cry along with me in some good local Moonshine!

Ralph, I saw you post about the Abingdon tea party. I am the organizer(not a very good one) of the tea party. After the fiasco with the town, it has now been settled and we will be having the tea party on April 15th at 6:30 pm. It will be at the Farmers market pavilion off of Cummings Street. If you are coming in from Rte 19, when you get to the intersection of Rte 19 and Rte 11 in Abingdon, turn left onto Rte 11(Main Street). Stay on Main street. When you get to the post office(it will be on your right) turn right towards the old train station depot that is now the Washington County Historical Society and stay on this road. It will curve to the left and take you right to the farmers market pavilion. Parking will be on your left. I hope you can attend. If you have any other questions feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you think you are going to attend, would you let me know just so we can get an idea of crowd size. Hope to see you there.
Welcome aboard, Ralph! Thanks for joining the fight to return Virginia to her conservative roots. Check out the site and join in. If you bring all of your family and friends along, it will be the other side shedding tears!
