Supervisor, Commonwealth’s Attorney

WOODBRIDGE, VA – The Prince William County Republican Committee today announced the winners of the Party nomination election for Board of County Supervisors and Commonwealth’s Attorney.

The nomination method chosen by the Committee was a Party Canvass, also called “Firehouse Primary,” which takes the place of a government-run primary and is designed to allow Republicans to select the nominees that will appear on the ballot in November. 

“Today, Republicans came out in large numbers all across the county to nominate a diverse ticket of individuals who have been invested in our community and are dedicated to bringing positive results for the people of this County,” said Committee Chairman Bill Card.

“Our Republican ticket is unified and focused on reducing traffic congestion, bringing high-paying jobs to Prince William, and reducing classroom sizes and supporting teachers."
