Recent news has made us aware how important elections for law enforcement and other local offices can be. Longtime York Sheriff Danny Diggs is stepping down to run against Monty Mason for state senate. Ron Montgomery, acting sheriff, will join us to talk about law enforcement issues and answer our questions. This is an important race, and we'll be inviting all the candidates to talk with us. We'll also get caught up on campaign news from Herb Jones for Congress and Stacy Kern-Scheerer for Williamsburg City Council. Register for the meeting here.
Early voting continues Monday-Saturday through Nov. 5 at early voting locations in James City and York counties and the cities of Williamsburg and Poquoson. For hours and locations, please go to our voter guide here.
