Unified Republicans Nominate Tony Buffington for Blue Ridge Supervisor

May 5, 2019

His nomination by acclamation of the 232 delegates from Blue Ridge District followed a motion by Florian Hauswiesner, who challenged for the nomination. A total of 269 registered delegates attended the convention at Stone Bridge High School.

Today marked a striking example of Republican unity as we prepare to expand our 6 to 3 majority on the Board of Supervisors this November.

The LCRC is proud to highlight the nominees for local office. The nominees range from fresh faces to experienced leaders in the community. Led by John Whitbeck, our outstanding candidate for Chairman of the Board who is setting new records for volunteer support and fundraising, the other Republican nominees for local office include the following:

  • Commissioner of the Revenue - Robert "Bob" Wertz, Jr.

  • Commonwealth Attorney - Nicole Wittman

  • Sheriff - Mike Chapman

  • Treasurer - Roger Zurn

  • Chairman Board of Supervisors - John Whitbeck

  • Algonkian District Supervisor - Suzanne Volpe

  • Ashburn District Supervisor - Rich McMunn

  • Blue Ridge District Supervisor - Tony Buffington

  • Broad Run District Supervisor - Jim Bonfils

  • Catoctin District Supervisor - Caleb Kershner

  • Dulles District Supervisor - Matt Letourneau

Many deserve our thanks for a seamless convention, starting with Ralph Buona who served as chairman. Ralph will be stepping down from the Board of Supervisors at the end of this year after eight years of extraordinary leadership and service, most recently as Vice Chairman.

Thanks also to the other volunteers who organized the convention and served on its committees. Special thanks to the following:

  • Secretary - Sharon Sadler

  • Parliamentarian - Devin Watkins

  • Sergeant at Arms - Kirk McNickle

  • Arrangements Committee Chair - Jeanette Fox

  • Credentials Committee Chair - Creal French

  • Nominations Committee Chair - Mark Sell

  • Tellers Committee Chair - Kristen Kalina

  • Rules Committee Chair - Cathy McNickle

As your outgoing LCRC Chairman this year, I am blessed to know that we have so many exemplary candidates running for local offices in Loudoun and a party organization that stands ready to help them in every way possible.

On to victory in November!
