I was amazed but also very pleased to see the support for Del. Bell announced yesterday in an email. Here is the entire list on the website!
Check out the Hanover list – six elected officials from our county coming out for BELL!
Delegate Christopher Peace
Honorable Trip Chalkley, Commonwealth’s Attorney
Sheriff Dave Hines
Honorable Wayne Hazzard, County Supervisor
Former Delegate Frank Hargrove
Honorable Sean Davis, County Supervisor
I am VERY pleased to see my former delegate, a hero of mine, Del. Frank Hargrove, on the list. Also it is significant that BOTH the sheriff and the Commonwealth’s Attorney have come out for Del. Bell, too. Finally, Del. Peace (proud to call my delegate) and two supervisors I strongly support, Wayne Hazzard and My own supervisor, Sean Davis, are Bell supporters.
Other significant names on the list are:
Former Delegate Bill Janis of Henrico
Congressman Robert Hurt
Albemarle Supervisor (and very helpful in getting ICLEI booted from Albemarle) Ken Boyd
House Courts of Justice Chairman David Albo
Delegate (and Dr.) John O’Bannon, M.D.
Senator Tom Garrett (It may have been Del. Bell’s support in Fluvanna that helped Tom win the primary!)
Delegate Richard Anderson from PWC. (I know Del. Anderson slightly and he is a super representative)
Delegate Terry Kilgore from western Virginia
And Martha Boneta, the Fauquier farmer who was threatened with a fine for a birthday party!
There are a lot of people I do not know so please pardon some omissions! Please note there are several Commonwealth’s Attorneys on the list (Orange, Madison and Chesapeake) and several sheriffs(Orange, Greene, Chesterfield, and Albemarle) too. Many delegates, too!
So, don’t believe that every party leader and office holder are for the other guy! If you live in a county or city where you have a GOP sheriff or Commonwealth’s Attorney, ask them – politely – to endorse Del. Rob Bell for Attorney General.
AND (not mentioned yet in the ad – I am not important like these are) a certain blogger in Hanover! I’m a delegate (at the convention) for Bell!
