Elect Ryant Washington
The November presidential election may be behind us, but for Fluvanna residents a very important special election takes place on Jan. 10. A vacancy in Virginia’s 22nd Senate District was created when the incumbent Tom Garrett won a seat representing Virginia’s 5th district in the U.S. House of Representatives.
For residents of Fluvanna, there is no better candidate to fill that vacancy than our own Ryant Washington. Washington’s public service goes back to 1990 when he first began his career in law enforcement. With experience as a Virginia state trooper, Fluvanna County deputy sheriff and later as sheriff, Washington knows how to manage the challenges facing our public safety efforts.
In addition to public safety, Washington’s experience on the Fluvanna Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors helped him to understand the challenges faced by small businesses in a rural area. He is committed to making Virginia a place where current businesses want to remain and new ones are attracted.
I could easily go on, but suffice it to say, Ryant Washington, your Fluvanna County neighbor, knows more about the needs of Fluvanna and has had more experience addressing those needs than his opponent in this very important special Senate election.
