What little I can find in the news doesn't talk about the City at all, mostly just how it may or may not impact PWC. I'd like to care about what's going in with local Republicans, but there's precious little word out there for the public to see."
David, this is what this is all about: There was to be a primary for all of the republican candidates for office this time around. PWC has several supervisors who face a challenge from their own party as does the Clerk of the Court and the Sheriff. The Chair of the PWC GOP neglected to file the proper paperwork for a "normal" primary (no, I don't know why or if there is some devious plot but others seem to think this is the case) so we'll have a "Firehouse Primary" at Metz from 10:00-3:00 this Saturday. I've volunteered to work from 1:00-3:00 so if you vote during that time you'll have the dubious honor of seeing me. 🙂
The residents of the City of Manassas who fancy themselves republicans will be able to vote for the Clerk of the Court and Sheriff. County residents will be able to vote for their supervisor as well as Clerk and Sheriff. Pretty sure that anyone that wants to vote will need to sign a pledge stating you're a republican (or something close to that).
For my part, I've endorsed Austin Haynes for Clerk and Glen Hill for Sheriff. Both good dudes.
Hope that helps
