Lowell Fulk to consider House run

Rockingham County Democratic Committee

Fulk Resigning as County Chair

Cites possible candidacy for the House of Delegates as reason

To a crowd of more than 70 people, Lowell Fulk confirmed Saturday (Dec. 18) he will step down as chairman of the Rockingham County Democratic Committee effective Jan. 27, 2005. The announcement came at the RCDC's annual Christmas Banquet.

Fulk told the group he was extremely proud of the committee's growth and accomplishments over the past year and that he knew RCDC would continue its dedicated work.

The Christmas banquet is one of several changes Fulk has initiated during his tenure as county chair. He has also increased participation at monthly meetings and helped draw a record crowd to the annual City-County fundraising dinner at the JMU College Center on Labor Day weekend.

Fulk told the committee he would resign "to explore a candidacy for the House of Delegates 26th District." Later he added that "I look forward to debating Glenn Weatherholtz on the real issues that face our Valley."

Fulk is the most serious threat Weatherholtz has faced in a reelection bid. Fulk came within a few points of upsetting Weatherholtz in 2003, carrying the city of Harrisonburg and the town of Broadway in the process.

Fulk told the crowd the RCDC Executive Committee recommends that RCDC District 1 Chair Tim Reamer, of Broadway, be selected chairman and asked all involved with the RCDC to come to the January meeting to support Reamer.

Media and the public are encouraged to attend the Jan. 27 meeting at the Board of Supervisors room at the Rockingham County Administrative Complex, 20 East Gay St., Harrisonburg. The meeting will be held at 7 pm.
