LTP meeting this Thurs.
Candidate Forum

Dear LTP Patriots,

   I want to remind you of our meeting this Thursday and the exciting Candidate Forum we will be having. It starts at 7 pm but come on at 6:30 for coffee and cookies. Bring $20 to renew your membership!! Click on the attachment for the full announcement. See you there and bring a friend. Hope you all voted for Brian yesterday. Call me 434-277-9036 or email me with any questions.

This will be a full plate with George Caylor sharing some history with his original Flintlock rifle which he still uses to bag a dear today.  Maybe you heard him this morning on WLNI talk about all of this and our Candidate Forum.  Hope you all can come and check it out.  I think you will find this event very welcoming.

We would love to see you there.

   In His Service,

   Renée DeShane

Lynchburg 2016 Election:
Get To Know Your Candidates


If you were wondering if there is voting on Tuesday May 3rd, you would be correct.  There is a vote for our local City of Lynchburg, City Council and City Treasurer.  And if you are also wondering who we are behind…..they are the ones that are willing to say they are Republicans while all the others claim to be “Independents.”  Click on the link below and view all the candidates short video interviews from ABC 13 WSET News of who they are and how they will perform at this job. 

We are bias of course with conservative people that has also shown financial responsibility.  Let’s not spend more than what the City of Lynchburg has in its bank account.  We don’t do it in our own family finances and the City should NOT do it with our hard earned tax dollar either.  Choose wisely on Tuesday.

LTP Communications


You may know your national candidates, but do you know your local ones? We made it a little easier to get to know your local contenders before the Lynchburg 2016 election. We asked each candidate the same three questions:

  1. What is the single most important issue you’d like to address if elected, and why?

  2. What makes you qualified for this position?

  3. What mistakes have you made, and what have you learned from them?

Check out their answers in the videos below. Make your vote count on May 3rd!
