Letter: UMW Young Dems thank Mark Warner for Almost Annual Pig Roast


To the Editor,

The University of Mary Washington Young Democrats would like to extend their sincere thanks to Senator Mark Warner for hosting the “Almost Annual Collis-Warner Pig Roast” on his King George, Virginia property this past Saturday. The Young Democrats of Mary Washington were not the only college political group in attendance, democratic delegations from universities across Virginia were present at this very well attended event, and political conversation was plentiful as students and campaign leaders met to discuss the issues and to eat delicious food.

This event was billed as a Pig Roast, so naturally there was plenty of pork for everyone, but, thoughtfully, there were also vegetarian options. Little details like this were the hallmark of the event, which had, in addition to great food and political conversation, lawn games, kayaking, boat rides and was decorated with hay bales like pigs. All of our expectations about this event were exceeded upon arrival, and thus we were also delighted to get the chance to meet Senator Warner himself, to shake his hand and to take a photo with him. So, it is with grateful hearts and full stomachs we address our thanks to Senator Warner for hosting such a wonderful party, and our thanks for being such an integral part of Virginia politics.
