Candidate for mayor has experience and knowledge

By Terry Nyhous

I urge all of my fellow residents of Warrenton to vote for Carter Nevill for mayor on Tuesday, May 1.

It is imperative that our next major have a clear vision of what needs to be done to boost our stature as one of the most attractive and vibrant towns in the commonwealth. As a lifelong resident, Mr. Nevill has watched Warrenton evolve over the years and knows every inch of it like the back of his hand. He has seen what worked and witnessed what did not. He has a vision of what the town can do to become more of a great place to live, shop, and play.

He is a business owner who knows what it takes to encourage economic development and fill the empty store fronts in Old Town and on Lee Street, Broadview and Shirley Avenue. He has been a key participant in the Virginia Main Street program and spearheaded the revitalization of the Experience Old Town Warrenton program.

Mr. Nevill has already proven that he is a true leader in local government. He has served as chairman of the Architectural Review Board, which oversees preservation of historic assets in the town. Throughout his tenure, he has worked tirelessly to make the review board more respectful, cooperative and friendly to residents and businesses alike.

And, Mr. Nevill has the temperament to make a great mayor. He understands that his primary task will be to work with the seven members of the town council to forge a consensus on goals and agendas. He is a gifted leader who understands that the team’s achievements always supplant individual efforts.

Finally, I urge all of my fellow Warrenton residents to vote on May 1. Town elections have always suffered from amazingly low turnouts, ranging from 30 percent to single digits. If all politics is local, we should all be focused on the elections that are the closest to our homes and matter the most to us.
