Hill, McQuigg, Stewart, Nohe, Anderson, Chapman to carry GOP banner in November

About 6500 residents from Prince William County, Manassas and Manasaas Park voted in the unusual “firehouse canvass” April 25 to select Republican candidates for November. All incumbent office holders won out over their challengers.

Republican candidates were selected Saturday by voters casting paper ballots from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at one location in each county magisterial district and at Metz Middle School, voting place for Manassas and Manassas Park city voters. The offices of sheriff and clerk of the court serve city and county residents.

Sheriff Glen Hill was the top voter getter with 5142 votes to challenger Mike Messier’s 1347 votes.

Clerk of Court Michele McQuigg pulled 4579 votes against challenger Austin B. Haynes with 1948 votes.

Corey A. Stewart, chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, received 4372 votes to 1577 votes for challenger Chris M. Crawford.

The biggest turnout of voters, more than 1660, occurred at the Coles District firehouse on VA 234, where sheriff’s deputies had to direct traffic and an auxilliary parking area was set up. Coles Supervisor Marty Nohe received 923 votes to 637 for challenger B. Paul O’Meara Jr.

Woodbridge District had the smallest number of voters, about 400. In the contest for the supervisor nomination, Stephen H. Chapman received 245 votes to Lee Price’s 146 votes.

In Occoquan District, where the incumbent supervisor is running for commonwealth’s attorney, Ruth Anderson became the Republican nominee with 843 votes to Donald E. Scoggins’ 201 votes.

Bill Card, Prince William County Republican Committee chairman, was quoted in a press release as saying, “I want to thank all of the dedicated Republicans who helped us put on our Party Canvass with about 6,500 voters.”

“My hat goes off to all of the candidates who ran but didn’t win. Mike Messier, Austin Haynes, Paul O’Meara, Chris Crawford, and Lee Price were respectful throughout the campaign and they should be proud of their effort,” Card added.

Card went on to say, “We now have a slate of candidates who will represent Republicans well in November. As the county continues to grow, Republicans look forward to putting forward substantive proposals to address the challenges that lay ahead for our community.”

The “firehouse canvass” was held when Republicans missed the deadline for filing for a primary. April 25 voting results in total may be viewed at
