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.
APOLOGIES TO ADKINS
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.
