Goochland County Election Announcement

The entire Board of Supervisors and all three Republican County-wide office holders declare for re-election.

Goochland County Court House, VA – Jan. 31, 2015 – All five members of the Goochland County Board of Supervisors and the Goochland County Treasurer, the Goochland County Commonwealth Attorney, and the Monacan Soil & Water Conservation District Director will announce their re-election intentions Saturday, January 31st at 11:00 AM at the historic Goochland Court House. A reception will immediately follow.

Candidates for the Board of Supervisors are Susan Lascolette, Manuel Alvarez, Ned Creasey, Bob Minnick and Ken Peterson. The County Treasurer is Pamela Johnson and the Commonwealth Attorney is Claiborne Stokes. Jonathan Lyle is Director Monacan Soil & Water Conservation District.

A “clean sweep” in 2011 by all of these officeholders was a surprising upset of established incumbents by novice candidates. Only one of these officeholders currently seeking re-election had previously run for or held public office. This is their first re-election campaign.

Although these candidates come from disparate backgrounds – bond manager, risk manager, IT manager, medical supplies sales, construction manager, U.S. Department of Justice contractor, attorney and small business owner, they have found common ground in serving the citizens of Goochland County. Working with the community, the School Board, business interests and regional partners has been a focus of these officeholders.

They can all point to objective, measurable successes from their first terms in office and they are announcing together their plans to run for re-election to show unity and strength of purpose.

This team of representatives will be joined by the 7th District Congressman Dave Brat and the Goochland County Commonwealth legislative representatives – Senator Tom Garrett, Delegate Lee Ware, and Delegate Peter Farrell.

    Wait…..has Goochland already set their nominating process and had their pre-filing deadline pass? If not, I find it a bit troubling that their Republican Chair would be involved in this. It’s always awkward to be hands off with incumbents until they’re officially re-nominated, but it’s crucial to the integrity of the process. If we want the right to challenge incumbents we don’t like, we have to acknowledge the rights of others to do so, no matter how much we love them.

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