Congratulations to all Americans on Joe Biden’s victory! We also managed to send our Democratic representatives and Senator back to Washington. Under some of the most difficult circumstances in the history of American elections, you all volunteered and worked tirelessly to turn out and inform voters in record numbers. This victory belongs to every American, but in particular to every Democrat who has put their time and energy into building a blue wave that has sustained over years. We have put so much on the line, even risking our very lives in the face of a global pandemic to fight for what we believe in.
Take some time to relish this incredible victory. Take some time to savor the possibilities for repairing our damaged democracy over the next four years. And rest up so that next year you are ready to fight to keep Virginia’s legislature and statewide offices in Democratic hands.
Here’s to you, Hunter Mill Democrats!

Mac Callahan is a Field Organizer with the Virginia 2020 Coordinated Campaign. His “turf” includes Herndon and North Reston, which overlaps with both Congressional Districts 10 and 11.
Mac is currently taking time off from school as a student at Tufts University in Medford, MA. His experience with campaigns first arose during the 2018 midterms as a volunteer for Senator Angus King’s reelection bid in his hometown of Brunswick, Maine. In December of 2019, Mac moved to Des Moines ahead of the Iowa Caucuses to work for the Biden Campaign. From there, he worked as a Field Organizer in Biden’s Columbia, SC and Tampa, FL field offices for those states’ respective primaries.
After a few months organizing virtually into states on the West Coast, Mac is excited to be a part of the Coordinated Campaign and begin organizing the Herndon-Reston Area to boost Democratic turnout and keep Virginia Blue. While campaigning in the midst of a pandemic certainly is challenging, Mac is prepared to innovate and get scrappy.
Feel free to contact him by email or phone. He is more than happy to get you connected with the Coordinated Campaign.
On December 11, 2019, the Hunter Mill District Democratic Committee elected its officers for 2020-2021. The Committee elected Richard Chew, who served as Vice Chair of Finance in 2018-2019, as its new chair for the coming biennium. The Committee also re-elected Kenny Bledsoe as Secretary. The Blue View provided coverage of the reorganization.
As of December 11, we are all “new” members again, so thank you to all of the new members who came out to make your voice heard in the future of the Hunter Mill District Democratic Committee. Let’s look forward to an exciting two years of continuing success in electing Democrats!
