In Stafford County Wendy Maurer has announced her intentions to seek the Republican nomination for the Board of Supervisors to represent the Rock Hill District. Last week, current Supervisor Cord Sterling announced he would not be seeking re-election to the seat. It was widely speculated that Maurer would become a candidate and heir apparent to the Rock Hill district on the Stafford Board of Supervisors.
No other candidates have yet come forward to seek the Republican nomination. There have been no Democrats rumbling their intention to seek the seat. A frequent visitor and speaker at public meetings in Stafford County known for colorful speeches during public comment time at a number of boards and commissions appears to planned to make a run at it. Paul Waldowski who often dresses in costume, t-shirts with clever quotes and hats with messages announced at a recent School Board meeting that he will be running in the Rock Hill district this year. Over the last several months he has set his sites on 2019 to run in as many as three districts simultaneously (legal or not). With the vacancy created by Sterling’s departure Waldowski’s plans to seek public office have accelerated.
Maurer currently sits on the Economic Development Authority in Stafford County. She is a small business owner and has served on a number of boards and commissions in the county over the last 13 years. Maurer and her husband have three children that attend Stafford County public schools.
Maurer should be a strong candidate for the Republican nomination, and considering the Rock Hill district is a solid Republican district the general election should already be set to likely Republican.
