Meet JCC Stonehouse Board of Supervisors Candidates On Oct. 17


JAMES CITY COUNTY — Save Rural James City County will be hosting a “meet the candidates” event on Tuesday, Oct. 17 for Board of Supervisors candidates in the Stonehouse district.

The goals of the event is to give James City County (JCC) citizens an opportunity to ask questions of both Republican Barbara E Null and her opponent, Democrat Lisa L Ownby.

According to the organizers, this will not be a ‘debate’ style event as each candidate will be available at separate times; Ownby will be available for questions between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. while Null will be available from 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to stay for both candidates.

Darlene Prevish, founder of Save Rural James City County, stated that the goal is “to create more of a visible communication with our candidates as a whole.”

“Anything that happens at the local government level within the county affects the entire county, not necessarily just a district. We want to make sure all the people who are representing us at our local level align with the values we hold for ourselves,” said Prevish.

Open to the community, the informal event will take place at Prevish’s home at 211 Old Stage Road in Toano. The event will be outdoors, folding chairs are encouraged.

“All JCC citizens are invited,” stated Prevish, “The things that happen in the Stonehouse district are going to affect all the other districts so, we want it to be known in not just the rural areas but even towards the Jamestown district.”

Questions do not have to be submitted in advance. While registration/RSVP is not required, Prevish said it would be helpful for planning purposes. Visit the Faceback event page for more details.
