A Republican real estate agent seeking to unseat Incumbent District 1 Supervisor Walt Zaremba was not able to come away with a win Tuesday during York County’s primary for the Board of Supervisors.

Zaremba defeated Rebekah Sandridge in the District 1 Republican race with 62.06 percent of the votes. He is uncontested in the Nov. 3 general election.

Sandridge, who took a stand against what she calls “excessive regulations” in the York County code, could not be reached for comment Tuesday night. Zaremba also could not be reached for comment.

Zaremba, an estate planning attorney by trade, won by 241 votes, according to the Virginia State Board of Elections. He received a total of 620 votes from District 1 citizens, while Sandridge received 379 votes.

Zaremba, who has represented constituents in the Magruder and Waller Mill areas of the county for 20 years, said in his campaign announcement he wanted to continue to “improve on the incredible quality of life” in York County and touted his many years of experience on the board as a reason to vote for him.

A total of 999 voters living in District 1 cast ballots in the primary.
