On this rainy evening, I caught up on some back reading. Among it was the February 7 edition of the New Journal and Guide. It includes this story http://njournalg.com/LocalRaces.htm
This far out Virginia Beach's African-American Political Action Committee (AAPAC) is already gearing up for the November contests. The story notes that African-Americans make up 30% of Virginia Beach's electorate.
Think you can ignore AAPAC? Ask Margaret Eure. AAPAC endorsed and openly worked for Bob Dyer in 2004.
I'm hoping AAPAC endorses by early October. I want to try to hold the Avenging Archangel City Council endorsements until after AAPAC has endorsed, so I can push their line where possible.
