PW likely to miss state-run primaries

While Virginia as a whole is known for lousy turnout in primary elections, Prince William County voters aren't even being given the option of participating in a state-run election this June. As of this week, none of the federal seats that include the greater Prince William County area are set to settle on their nominees in open primaries. None of the incumbents seeking re-election are being challenged by members of their own parties. At the same time, the Democratic and Republican parties are nominating their candidates at party-run functions, which is designed to limit public participation.

Democrats last two vying for party nomination in 10th district

Before U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-10th) announced in December that he would retire at the end of his current term, three Democrats faced each other for their party's nomination to take him on in the general election. Now two weeks before the filing deadline, only two Democrats are left in the open seat race featuring six Republicans. It's odd for an open seat to generate fewer challengers from the opposite party than a race featuring an entrenched Republican but that's the current state of the race for the 10th Congressional District.

PWC to hold public hearing on adoption of new voting precincts

The Prince William County Board of Supervisors will conduct a public hearing on March 11 at 2 p.m. in the Board Chambers of the McCoart Administration Building to consider adopting changes to voting precinct boundaries, associated precinct polling places, and precinct names.

Tax rate capped at $1.158

Prince William County's real-estate tax rate for the next fiscal year won't be any more than $1.158 per $100 of assessed value. That's certain. Any other talk about the fiscal 2015 budget is only conjecture. At least for now. County Executive Melissa Peacor presented a $975.9 million general fund budget to the Board of County Supervisors on Feb. 18. It proposed reducing the real-estate tax rate 6 cents to $1.126 per $100 of valuation.

Opposites attract in Haymarket council race

Two town council members are seeking re-election in the Town of Haymarket. One, first-term incumbent Steve Aitken, is a steadfast ally of Mayor David Leake who the mayor endorsed for election in 2012 when Aitken ran as one of six write-in candidates backed by Leake. That puts him on the opposite side of two-term incumbent Milt Kenworthy, who has clashed with mayor repeatedly over both public and personal matters.

Council candidates rush to file before deadline

In the run-up to the March 4 filing deadline, a slew of new candidates entered town council races in Haymarket, Occoquan and Dumfries, finally offering residents enough candidates to fill the minimum needed to run each town's legislature. Meanwhile, the mayoral races have played out steadily over the last month as it appeared there be head-to-head competition on the ballot in Dumfries, Quantico and Haymarket. For the fifth-straight election season, only one candidate will appear by name on the ballot in Occoquan, barring a last-minute entry after this publication's deadline.

Brown lays out agenda for second term

Regardless of who else may enter the Quantico mayoral election, first term Mayor Kevin Brown will have competition coming from a familiar opponent in former Mayor Iris Tharp. Brown submitted his own papers with the Prince William Office of Elections late last month, declaring in a follow-up interview that he "just really didn't want to lose the steam, lose the progress we had made (compared) to where it was" prior to the start of his term in 2012.

In Culpeper: Meet Jon Russell – candidate for town councilman

On May 6, residents will have their choice from a slate of candidates for at-large seats on town council. Jon Russell is one of them.

Prince William County to hold mock election

Big Bird, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and others will be on the ballot on Feb. 28 and March 1 when the Prince William County Office of Elections holds mock elections to test two types of voting machines being considered for use. Doug Geib, the Prince William County general registrar, said there are several reasons for the county to move to new paper-based voting systems to replace the machines in use now. “The ones that we have now are all touch-screen, and they’re coming to the end of their life. Every election there’s just a higher failure rate.”

New online system created to answer your county budget questions

Do you have questions about the Prince William County Budget and want answers? Well, Prince William County Government has created an online application just for you. A new online system, which can be accessed from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) website, allows citizens to submit questions about the County's proposed Fiscal 2015 budget, and provides a list of those questions along with questions posed by the Prince William Board of County Supervisors.
