I have heard from a reliable source that Prince William Commonwealth Attorney Paul Ebert intends to resign from office after the election and retire as soon as he’s served longer than Fairfax Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert Horan, which would make him the longest-serving Commonwealth’s Attorney in Virginia history if he serves an additional one year and one day beyond this current term. His intent would then be to position his deputy to succeed him, in the same manner that the Clerk Of The Court position was engineered to be handed off to chosen successors for decades before David Mabie was elected.
Is this the sort of thing that Prince William County needs, another designated succession plan to ensure that a Constitutional Office is kept within the hands of a select group of insiders who choose our elected representatives behind closed doors? I think not.
Ham Sandwich would not do such a thing. He’s not capable of such shenanigans. Write in Ham Sandwich for Prince William Commonwealth’s Attorney on November 6th. He can do the job just as well as the current one, and won’t try to engineer undemocratic transfers of power to insiders within the Commonwealth’s Attorney Office.
