5 Friday Fauquier factoids: Women wearing badges

A riparian buffer, planted with John Marshall Soil and Water Conservation District support, and Deputy Emmie Dean of the Patrol Division, one of 12 sworn deputies in the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office.

Sworn female deputies work for the Fauquier’s sheriff’s office, which has 178 employees. That total also includes 42 female civilians.

With a police department of 33 employees, the Town of Warrenton has two female officers and three female administrative staff members.

The state police’s “Area 12,” which encompasses Fauquier and Rappahannock counties, has no female troopers among its19 employees. Only one female — a secretary serves — the Warrenton-based office.


Total attendance at the Warrenton Aquatics and Recreational Facility in May.

The WARF has 1,457 members and sold 3,487 one-day passes last month.

Through May, the facility had generated $1.193 million in fiscal 2019, down slightly from last year.

Year-to-date operating expenses stood at $1.275 million, also down from last year.

$2.1 million

State money Fauquier’s John Marshall Soil & Water Conservation District will receive this year to fund agricultural “best management” practices to protect local streams and rivers.

Fauquier last year received $840,000 for those purposes.

Best practices include cultivation of certain crops to control soil erosion, installation of fences to block cattle from entering streams, livestock watering systems, hardened stream crossings, riparian buffer plantings and construction of pits to contain livestock waste.

To learn more about the program and grant opportunities, call 540-347-3120, extension 3.


Fauquier residents registered to vote in the Tuesday, June 11, primary. In local races, voters will select Republican nominees for sheriff and the commissioner of revenue.

First-term incumbent Bob Mosier and political newcomer Chris Cochrane will vie for the sheriff’s nomination.

First-time candidates Eric Maybach and Carl Wiberg will compete for the commissioner of revenue’s nomination. They hope to succeed Ross D’Urso, who will retire Dec. 31, after 24 years in office. The winner will face independent Angela Smith in the Nov. 5 general election.

Voters on Tuesday also will help select Democratic nominees for two district seats to the Virginia House of Delegates.

Laura Galante, who lives near Marshall, and Tristan Shields of Culpeper will compete for the 18th District seat nomination. The winner will face eight-year incumbent Republican Del. Michael Webert, who lives near Marshall, in the November general election. The district includes all of Rappahannock and portions of Culpeper, Fauquier and Warren counties. 

Kecia Evans of Stafford County and Jessica Foster, who lives near Remington, hope to secure the nomination to represent the 88th District, which includes three Fauquier precincts — Lois, Morrisville and Remington — and parts of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania and Stafford counties. The winner will face Republican Del. Mark Cole of Fredericksburg, who has held the seat since 2002.


Funds raised for the American Cancer Society during the annual Fauquier County Relay for Life.

The event took place Saturday, June 1, on the track at Fauquier High School.

The Warrenton Presbyterian Church Youth team led the fundraising effort with $14,651.

Seffrin earned total compensation of $856,442 as CEO of the American Cancer Society last year, in addition to $77,859 as president of the ACS Cancer Action Network, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate. Apr 2, 2015"

I do not support the ACS as long as the CEO's receive this kind of compensation that should be going to the people that HAVE cancer.
