Doug Taggart Thanks Supporters, Pledges Positive Campaign
DUMFRIES, Virginia – Doug Taggart won the May 4th Firehouse Primary to become the Republican nominee for this November’s election to represent the Potomac District on the Prince William County Board of Supervisors. The Republican nominee delivered the following remarks:
“I would like to thank all of those who voted Saturday in the Prince William County Firehouse Primary, and especially those who placed their confidence in me to be the Republican candidate to represent the Potomac District on the Prince William County Board of Supervisors.”
“I would also like to thank my GOP challenger, Davon Gray for the campaign that he led in the pursuit of gaining voter confidence for him to be the November candidate.”
“Back in January Davon and I agreed that regardless of the outcome of the May 4th primary we would work together to support the winner headed to November, and I thank him for this commitment.”
“In my judgment, poisonous national politics have no place in local elections in Prince William County. I intend to run a positive campaign focused on economic development, transportation challenges, schools, public safety and other issues that are important to families, individuals,
and businesses in our region.”
“I look forward to sharing my ideas, learning from residents, and having the opportunity to earn your vote in November.”
