Rappahannock News - - Comment -

Nu­mer­ous can­di­dates, in­clud­ing in­cum­bents, are seek­ing to fill sev­eral Rap­pa­han­nock County govern­ment seats up for grabs this Elec­tion Day, which falls on Tues­day, Nov. 5, 2019. As the var­i­ous cam­paigns is­sue an­nounce­ments to this news­pa­per they will be pub­lished in whole or in part in this space. Ad­di­tion­ally, the Rap­pa­han­nock News will pub­lish can­di­date profiles and a voter’s guide, and also co-host with Busi­nesses of Rap­pa­han­nock a can­di­dates’ fo­rum, set for Satur­day, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. at the Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton The­atre. Cam­paign sub­mis­sions can be sent to News ed­i­tor John McCaslin at [email protected]­



Whitson’s bi­og­ra­phy, plat­form, and recent press cov­er­age are featured on the new site.

States the Har­ris Hol­low can­di­date: “My start­ing premise for en­ter­ing this race is an op­ti­mistic one: Rap­pa­han­nock County is a one-of-a-kind place and re­mark­able in many ways. At the same time, we can­not take this for granted or be com­pla­cent. We must pro­tect our county vig­i­lantly through care­ful plan­ning and good govern­ment, and be smart about adapt­ing to change and an­tic­i­pat­ing threats to what we al­ready have. I am ex­cited about the pos­si­bil­ity of serv­ing the peo­ple of Rap­pa­han­nock County and the res­i­dents of the Hamp­ton Dis­trict. I will be ready to get to work if elected.”

Whitson’s op­po­nent is Au­drey Reg­n­ery of Wash­ing­ton.


Due to an edit­ing er­ror, Com­mis­sioner of Rev­enue can­di­date Lavonne G. Adkins’ name was, quite frankly, butchered in last week’s edi­tion of the Rap­pa­han­nock News. The ed­i­tor sin­cerely re­grets the er­ror.

Adkins, who is mount­ing a chal­lenge to in­cum­bent Rev­enue Com­mis­sioner Mary A. Gra­ham, is a res­i­dent of Wash­ing­ton. — John McCaslin

Keir Whitson, who is seek­ing the Hamp­ton Dis­trict Board of Su­per­vi­sors seat be­ing va­cated by John Lesin­ski, has un­veiled his cam­paign’s web­site: www.
