June primary lineup in Fauquier set
There will be contested races in the June 9 primary between Republicans for Fauquier County Clerk of Courts with incumbent Gail Barb running against John Cheatwood and in one supervisor race with incumbent Cedar Run County Supervisor Lee Sherbeyn running against Rick Gerhardt.
Bob Mosier will not have a challenger in the Republican race for county sheriff now that Robert “Bobby” Tarr has dropped out. Tarr sent a two-paragraph letter to the Fauquier County Electoral Board on Tuesday saying he was withdrawing from the race after declaring his candidacy less than two weeks ago.
Independent candidates have until June 9 to file for the Nov. 3 election. Rex Hoover announced this week that he is gathering signatures on nominating petitions to run for Lee District supervisor.
Republicans not facing a primary challenge within their party are Commissioner of the Revenue Ross D'Urso, Treasurer Tanya Wilcox, Commonwealth's Attorney Jim Fisher, Center District Supervisor Chris Granger, Scott District Supervisor Holder Trumbo, newcomer Kate Warzinski running for Marshall District supervisor and newcomer Chris Butler running for Lee District supervisor.
On the Democratic Party side, Sheriff Ray Fox faces no party opposition.
Mary Leigh McDaniel is running for Marshall District supervisor as an independent. Running for seats on the Fauquier County School Board as independents are incumbents Donna Grove in the Cedar Run District and Sheryl Wolfe in the Lee District. Newcomer Suzanne Sloane is running as an independent for the Scott District school board seat.
The filing deadline for the primary was Thursday at 5 p.m.
