What This Special Election is All About
The recent departure of Councilwoman Rita Sweet Bellitto created an open seat on Virginia Beach City Council.
While there was some controversy regarding the temporary appointment of an interim Councilman, the process went forward and we congratulate Prescott Sherrod.
This special election will allow the voters of Virginia Beach the opportunity to determine who will permanently fill this At-Large Council seat.
It is for this reason we urge every eligible voter to come out on November 8th and cast your ballot in what could become a very important election to the future of our city.
Virginia Beach residents deserve a voice on City Council that believes fiscal responsibility and the rule of law go hand-in-hand. Just as Dennis Free has distinguished himself as a law enforcement official, he will continue to serve and provide distinguished leadership to the Citizens of Virginia Beach as your next City Councilman.
