Barbara Null for Stonehouse Supervisor
Stonehouse District Planning Commission Member
to seek Republican nomination to succeed Sue Sadler
Barbara Null, who represents Stonehouse District on the James City County Planning Commission, today announced her candidacy to represent the Stonehouse District on the James City County Board of Supervisors. She is seeking the Republican nomination to succeed Supervisor Sue Sadler, who has announced her retirement and is endorsing Null.
“Having represented my neighbors in Stonehouse on the James City County Planning Commission for the past three years, I know the tremendous influence those serving in local government can have on our county,” said Null. “Those who serve on the Board of Supervisors, as well as citizen panels like the Planning Commission, have the ability to shape the future of our beautiful county, affecting the quality of life for all of us. And, ideally, their decisions rely on citizen input.
“The entire Planning Commission, with input from the residents of the county, worked tirelessly on the Comprehensive Plan for 2045. Our goal was to protect our county’s rural character, and the Comp Plan does that. Our citizens spoke and this is the Plan they wanted.
As Supervisor, I will continue to be a voice for the citizens of Stonehouse District. I will stand up to protect their property rights and keep our taxes low. I promise to take every decision seriously and ask for citizen input to help make my decisions. I will work for you, not the larger overreaching government. As a fiscal conservative, I will vote for protecting the rights of the citizens and will stand up against tax increases and demand fiscal responsibility of our county.
“Our county is one of the most beautiful and, certainly, most historic in the Commonwealth and the nation. My aim is to keep it that way. I will work to keep it a great place to live, preserving its beauty for the future while maintaining its affordability for the present. And, I will always be available, accessible, and responsive to my neighbors in Stonehouse, actively seeking their input and suggestions to ensure our county remains a great place to live and work for generations to come.”
