Jack Trammell, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress from Virginia’s 7th District, will be in Lake of the Woods Oct. 27 to meet voters and discuss his plans to help end the partisan gridlock in Washington.
The event, which will begin at 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 27, will take place in the LOW Community Center.
Refreshments will be served and everyone, regardless of political affiliation, is welcome to attend.
Jack, who lives on a small farm in adjacent Louisa County, is a faculty member in sociology at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland.
He completed an undergraduate degree at Grove City College in western Pennsylvania, a master’s degree and Ph.D. at Virginia Commonwealth University and a special education certification program at the University of Virginia. He has been teaching at the K12 or university level for more than twenty years.
Jack has a wide variety of interests and an extensive career as a writer. He and his wife, Audrie, a special educator and artist have seven grown children, six of whom will be actively enrolled in post-secondary education this fall.
In May of 2014, Jack declared his candidacy and was subsequently nominated unanimously by the Democratic Party of the 7th District. “It was a long decision-making process for me,” he says. “I had considered running in earlier races, but the situation in the 7th and in Washington finally convinced me that change was absolutely necessary. No matter who I would be running against on the other side of the ticket, I was determined that there would be a dialogue.”
Jack believes first and foremost in serving the constituents of the 7th District of Virginia. With both an undergraduate and graduate education, he has developed a wide range of expertise that will help him to navigate important policy issues in the Seventh District. He firmly believes in hearing from his neighbors about the issues they want addressed in Washington and is committed to ensuring their voices are heard.
Voters in the Seventh District finally have a chance to elect someone who isn’t beholden to ideological extremists or monied special interests.
