Prince George & Politics

Prince George is  a suburbanizing county in South Central Virginia … about 37,000 residents.  Politics here run deep as in  many places, but here there is a quiet, genteel veneer covering the rivalry and the dirty tricks.

This year is an election year for the Board of Supervisors (BOS) and in Prince George all 5 seats are subject to the election.  We don’t have staggered terms.  It is conceivable, though not likely, that we could begin 2012 with a totally new BOS or possibly and likely that the 5 incumbents will be reelected.

The Prince George Board of Supervisors is composed of five white males,   all of whom profess to be “independents” and three of whom have a coalition so that the three Musketeers essentially have a voting bloc.

Will all five return again this year?  Will the three return this year?
