Lawson runs again in Brentsville District

Jeanine M. Lawson isn't waiting for the third time. She's hoping the second time's the charm. Lawson, who challenged Prince William County Supervisor Wally Covington three years ago, again seeks the Brentsville District seat. The details are different this time, though. Lawson, a 44-year-old community activist, lost the GOP nomination to Covington by 157 votes in an August 2011 primary. This year, however, she seeks the Republican nod to replace Covington, who is expected to be named a General District court judge. She faces real-estate broker Scott A. Jacobs, who also wants to run for the Brentsville slot with the party label. The winner most likely will square off with Democrat Donald B. Shaw II of Gainesville in a special election. Problem is, it's unclear when that contest will be held.

Ramadan awarded for military spouse legislation

Shaw seeks Brentsville seat

Donald B. Shaw II may have gone to high school with Ashley Judd back in Kentucky, but he's aiming for a longer political run than the starlet had last year. Judd flirted with the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, but then decided not to make a run against Republican Mitch McConnell. Shaw, on the other hand, is running – for the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. He's a Democrat, too. But he's not sure who he'll face.

Rollins Ford Park hearing is June 3

A public hearing regarding utility easements at Rollins Ford Park is set for June 3, not May 20 as originally published. The Prince William Board of County Supervisors has planned a public hearing for June 3 to consider the Contract of Sale to Convey Utility Easement – Rollins Ford Park. The 'Times' erroneously published a public hearing notice stating the meeting would be May 20. The meeting will actually be held on June 3. The public notices and advertising for the public hearing have been changed and the supporting documents will be made available to the public for the June 3 meeting. The “Times” regrets the error.

County sets tax rate, adopts budget

The Prince William Board of County Supervisors adopted the budget and tax rate for the coming year on April 29.
