Congratulations to Trixie Averill ... new 6th District Chairman

Trixie Averill stood in 2007 against anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan in Charlottesville. Trixie, a military mom whose son Sgt. Marcus Averill was deployed 3 times to Iraq and once to Afghanistan, rallied with others in support of America's troops.

In a landslide election, Trixie Averill won the 6th District Chairman position Saturday in Lynchburg. Congratulations, Trixie!

I'm live-blogging the SWACers gathered at Jason's house reliving the convention and sharing with three who were not able to attend. It's a gathering of Yankee Phil, Augusta Conservative, Augusta Water Cooler, Barb, Kurt, Kelly, and David ... observations of the day are being relived and shared.

A collective "Congratulations, Trixie," from the SWAC Crew!

UPDATE: I published this post at 9:30 Saturday night and at 11:00 my cell phone rang. It was Trixie calling to say she had read the post and knew we were all together so I put her on speaker phone and everyone talked and relived the convention and congratulated her for her win. We'll take the rest of the weekend off ... and then roll up our sleeves and get going because there's work to be done.
