A precinct-by-precinct look at the Warren races
FRONT ROYAL – Not all winners in Warren County’s local races received support from their neighbors.
Thomas H. Sayre won election to the Shenandoah District seat on the Board of Supervisors. Sayre, a former town councilman for Front Royal, fended off Ralph A. Rinaldi and Dee A. Schools.
But unofficial results provided by the Virginia Department of Elections showed that Sayre did not carry his own voting precinct. Rinaldi carried the West Shenandoah precinct that covers the town. By the same token, Rinaldi did not carry the East Shenandoah precinct in which both he and Schools vote. Rinaldi and Schools live in the Shenandoah Farms Sanitary District.
North River District Supervisor Daniel J. Murray Jr. won his bid for re-election and a second term. Murray defeated a challenge by former Front Royal Town Councilman N. Shae Parker.
Unofficial results show that Parker handily carried the North River voting precinct where he lives. However, Murray carried his voting precinct of Riverton by an even wider margin. Murray also received the most votes by absentee ballot.
In the race for clerk of the circuit court, Front Royal Town Councilman Daryl L. Funk carried all voting precincts except for Happy Creek, West Shenandoah and South River. Funk votes in the Fork Town precinct. Funk’s challenger, Rhonda S. North, town clerk for Middleburg, carried the Happy Creek precinct, where she votes as well as West Shenandoah and South River.
