UPDATED: Nov. 6 at 4:30- Change in results for Sheriff’s race, ballot numbers and results of the bond questions. 

Big wins for Amy Ashworth, Commonwealth Attorney, and Ann Wheeler, Chairman of the Board of County Supervisors, this election!

The sheriff’s race could be a toss up between Sheriff Glen Hill and Democrat Joshua Hill.

The Board of County Supervisors turns blue except for three seats: Jeanine Lawson (Brentsville) and Pete Candland (Gainesville) and newly elected Yesli Vega in the Coles District.

The board will also become more racially diverse.

Commonwealth Attorney (Manassas City, Manassas Park, Prince William)

Amy Ashworth (D) 58% 47,310 to Michael May 41.9% 34,164

Ashworth had a strong victory over former Occoquan Supervisor Mike May. She worked for the Commonwealth Attorney as a prosecutor.

 

UPDATED: Sheriff (Manassas City, Manassas Park, Prince William)

Joshua King (D) 45.08% 36,712 Glen Hill (R-incumbent) 44.61% 36,664 –  – Rhonda Dickson (I) 10.43% 8,545

With more precincts reporting, it looks like Joshua King could be the new sheriff.

 

BOARD OF COUNTY SUPERVISORS, PRINCE WILLIAM 

Chairman: Ann Wheeler (D) 55.%,  John Gray (R) 35. %, Muneer Baig 5%, Donald Scoggins 4.48%,

Strong win for Ann Wheeler in the four-way Chairman’s race. Gray, a surprise winner of the Republican primary, was hurt by the discovery of inflammatory political Tweets.

 

Brentsville: Jeanine Lawson (R-incumbent) 54.89% 8,097 to “Maggie” Hansford (D) 44.86% 6,744

Republican Jeanine Lawson held her seat in Brentsville. Hansford, a Prince William County School teacher, received a good turnout in the traditionally Republican-leaning district.
