Endorsements: Hanover County Constitutional Offices

Hanover County is one of the safest suburban areas in the country, thanks in large part to effective law enforcement. Sheriff Stuart Cook has done an outstanding job for many years. His well earned retirement after a job well done will allow him to finally spend time with his family and pass the torch to the next Sheriff.

When I first heard that Dave Hines was planning to run for Hanover Sheriff, I will admit that I did not know him.

When we first met, the top question I had on my mind was ‘Is Hines going to make drastic changes in an effective system?’

His answer was exactly what I hoped to hear. He believes that things are going well and is not looking to make changes. Sure, there will be tweaks as time goes on, but Hines has the good sense to know not to mess with something that works.

Besides, he has had a big part in making the Hanover Police force the shining example of how to do things correctly. They have achieved a balance. You know they are there, but they are not in the way.

Dave Hines for Sheriff is unquestionably in the best interest of Hanover County, Va. Virginia Right! is happy to endorse the new Sheriff, although he has already been doing the job!

The other part of the Law Enforcement equation is the Commonwealth’s Attorney. Without a tightly coordinated effort between the police and the Commonwealth’s Attorney, public safety and security is at risk.

Trip Chalkley has decided to run for another term to serve the people of Hanover as Commonwealth’s Attorney.

Chalkley has taken the lead on a number of cases that have come across his desk. I have known Trip for several years and have watched as he has taken on cases, some mundane, others very high profile. To Chalkley, a crime is a crime. Period. He gives them all 100%. Often, a Commonwealth’s Attorney allows his desire for a high conviction rate to decide if a case is worthy of prosecution. This is not true in Chalkley’s case. He does his job, plain and simple. He will not allow politics or personal ambition to sway his actions.

Trip Chalkley has been an outstanding Commonwealth’s Attorney. Virginia Right! endorses Trip Chalkley for Commonwealth’s Attorney for Hanover County.

We can trust Dave Hines and Trip Chalkley to keep Hanover safe!

There are two additional top Constitutional Officers on the ballot in Hanover. Both, like Sheriff and Commonwealth’s Attorney are uncontested, and both have done an outstanding job in trying financial times.

Scott Harris is running for reelection as Commissioner of Revenue and Scott Miller is seeking another term as Treasurer. Both have done an excellent job for Hanover and we are pleased that they are offering their services for another term. Virginia Right! endorses both Scott Harris and Scott Miller for reelection!

A word about these endorsements.

These four candidates are running unopposed, and for good reason. They have done their jobs well and are a major reason Hanover continues to be one of the best places to live, work and play in the country. The fact that they are unopposed attests to this achievement.

The value of endorsing an incumbent who is running unopposed is of little value at the ballot box, as all will easily win reelection. But we consider these endorsements a vote of confidence based on an impeccable track record.

And a thank you for serving your community!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
