Here’s where things get interesting - in the races that decide what your property taxes should be and how they’re used. Prince William County has some major challenges ahead and we really need some changes if we’re ever going to be able to address them. Here’s how you might be able to make those changes […]
As they come in…
John Guevara narrowly wins in Sully District of Fairfax
Steve Chapman (?!!??) wins in Woodbridge
Michele McQuigg Wins Clerk of the Court
Glen Hill wins Sheriff
Stewart wins BOCS Chairman
Marty Nohe wins in Coles
Ruth Anderson wins in Occoquan
If you’re hoping either one of the Republican candidates for Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors gives a damn about illegal immigration, that hope pretty much got demolished at the debate between Chris Crawford and Corey Stewart this past week. When asked about how the county should respond to Youth For Tomorrow trafficking “unaccompanied […]
Corey Stewart is all in a tizzy that he might not be able to use a primary election for his re-nomination, to the point he’s saying all sorts of utterly ridiculous things to the Washington Post, and trashing the Republicans he is asking to vote for him. You’d think this guy never faced a convention before in […]
I’ve been eagerly awaiting a response from PWC Chairman Corey Stewart regarding the revelations about his endorsed candidate’s shocking antics. Does Corey think that threatening the children of combat-wounded veterans represents his kind of politics? Is he proud to show up at events wearing Steve Chapman’s lapel sticker knowing that Chapman cheated on his pregnant wife with someone […]
In what may be the most brilliant political move in local political history, it appears that PWCGOP Chairman Bill Card somehow neglected to file the requests on behalf of incumbent local elected officials for primaries to decide who the nominees will be in those races. With the filing deadline for primary elections having passed, as […]
Everyone residing the in the Coles District should read this post. Then they should get out their checkbook, an envelope and a stamp.
During the past few months potential Republican challengers in the 2015 elections have been dropping like flies, and that continued today with an announcement by Jim Riley that he’s not going to challenge Maureen Caddigan for the Potomac District seat on the Board of Supervisors. Right amidst an unprecedented wave of voter outrage against political […]
When Scott Jacobs got the news that he was disqualified as a Republican candidate for Brentsville Supervisor because he failed to file on time as a candidate for the Republican Mass Meeting, he realistically had three options to consider. He could endorse Jeanine “for the good of the party” and recover some of the goodwill […]
I visited with Scott Jacobs today, originally to confirm that it was one of his employees pictured on Virginia Virtucon taking down one of Jeanine Lawson’s signs. Scott was still in the midst of trying to figure out what to do in the wake of his campaign essentially coming to an abrupt end after neglecting to file […]
Hey, Scott Jacobs! This is just a friendly head’s-up that I know who is in this picture committing a Class 1 Misdemeanor on behalf of your campaign, and based on just how close they are to you that it would be pretty laughable to say that you didn’t have anything at all to do with […]
Members of a political party should have the opportunity to choose whoever they think is the best candidate to run as their nominee in a general election. I can’t even imagine a circumstance that would cause anyone to disagree with such a basic premise, one that’s part of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. […]
While Hugo Chavez is dead, his tactics and ideas live on right here in Prince William County, courtesy of folks like Milt Johns and Wally Covington. Dontcha just love it when Republicans show that beyond all the rhetoric, what they really want most is to be tinpot third-world communist dictators?
The Prince William County Republican Committee has issued their call for a convention with a filing deadline of February 23rd, and an overview of the call and convention dates are in an article at PWC News Network. Don’t wait to submit your delegate form, get it in now.
Some folks might have a few more questions about […]
Bill Card won the chairmanship of the Prince William County Republican Committee today by a pretty comfortable margin. Both candidates ran excellent, upbeat races and are to be commended for their dedication to the Committee and commitment to help it succeed. There’s no indication at all that there will be any residual animosity and every sign points […]
This is one of those years when local committees reorganize themselves, and this year Lyle Beefelt, who has done an utterly outstanding job of sheparding the PWCGOP through the perils of committee politics is not running for re-election. That has left an opening for Tom Whitmore, a dedicated activist who currently serves as Vice-Chair, to […]
Incumbent Gainesville school board representative Don Richardson got trounced by Alyson Satterwhite 42-13 at tonight’s committee meeting, putting a long-awaited, thundering nail in the political coffin of a board member who angrily told parents to “grow up” when they expressed concerns about the county schools. Congratulations to Alyson Satterwhite who has been working a long time for this.
Tonight the Prince William County Republican Committee will choose which candidates for school board will receive their endorsement. One of the contested races is in Gainesville, where Alyson Satterwhite is seeking to replace incumbent Don Richardson. Both have received important endorsements, as the following videos demonstrate.
Chris Royse made his official announcement of his campaign for Woodbridge Supervisor at last night’s meeting of the Prince William County Republican Committee, and while I wasn’t set up to record video I figured that readers would be interested in seeing what he had to say even if the footage isn’t quite up to my […]
Campaigns in Prince William County are getting in gear as filing deadlines rapidly approach. Looking at the progress candidates have made (or not) gives us a good idea of just who is serious about winning, and who is not. Here’s the breakdown:
