Carolyn Bragg GOP Nominee for Augusta BOS Election
AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -
After some controversy, Augusta County Supervisor Carolyn Bragg will be on the ticket for this fall's Board of Supervisors election.
Voters from the South River District elected her at a Republican Party mass meeting Monday night.
The meeting almost didn't happen. An Augusta County GOP leader announced on Facebook Sunday night that the meeting was canceled, and Bragg's opponent was declared the winner.
But the meeting went on despite the confusion.
"The legal process that was required by the Republican Party call was carried out tonight. There is no other business to be conducted and this is official, once the paperwork is filed with the registrar, then she will be on the ballot,” said Sixth District GOP Party Chair Wendell Walker.
Bragg has been serving as an interim supervisor since March. She is now officially the GOP nominee for this fall's election.
