There are several candidates in the race to replace Wally Covington as Brentsville District Supervisor. These include:
As this article observes, No election yet, but Brentsville campaign signs still stir controversy, no election has been scheduled yet.
But the next election for the county board won’t be held until November 2015, though Supervisor Wally Covington, the current Brentsville Magisterial District representative, is widely expected to be appointed to a district judgeship, which would trigger a special election to fill his seat.
Right now, though, there’s no state budget, no judgeship appointments and no special election. And that’s causing problems for Scott Jacobs, a Republican who recently took his campaign for Covington’s seat up a notch by posting campaign signs around Nokesville. (from here)
Nonetheless, the candidates seem eager to get started. On Saturday, Jeanine Lawson sent out an email announcing her candidacy. Here is an excerpt.
Throughout the nineteen years that I have lived in this beautiful county, I have enjoyed the opportunity to meet, listen and work with many of you to help make our community a better place to live. Many of you have seen me on the front lines improving our county, from advocating for balanced growth to lobbying for improved schools.
Leadership begins with listening. I believe you want your local government representative to be proactive, responsive, open to listening and sharing information, and to never forget they serve the public. I pledge, if I am elected to represent you as Supervisor of the Brentsville District, I will always strive to have your best interest govern my actions.
As Supervisor I will advance conservative fiscal policies with a common sense approach. Growth needs to be responsible and it’s important that we manage our future residential growth in a manner that does not continue to overcrowd our schools and roads. Also, I support protecting the Rural Crescent, revising our proffer guidelines to ensure new developments are tax neutral and infrastructure needs are met in a timely manner. As a conservative, I am committed to the taxpayer, which is why I support zero based budgeting to hold bureaucracy accountable for their spending. And last but certainly not least, I strongly believe business growth must be a top priority to bring jobs and expand the tax base.
Rest assured, Lawson is a hard worker, a great candidate, and she will be asking for you vote.
Check out the candidate’s websites. Consider that these people are our friends and neighbors. They know us and our community. If we want America’s government to start working again, we need to put focus of government back on local government.
