Is Fluvanna County Sheriff Ryant Washington resigning to take a new job with Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s administration?
That question has been asked throughout Fluvanna Monday (April 14) on Facebook and in emails about Washington - Fluvanna’s long-time, popular sheriff.
Washington, in a brief telephone interview with the Fluvanna Review, said he “can’t confirm or deny” the rumors, but referred questions to the governor’s office.
Brian Coy, the governor’s press secretary, refused to comment on Washington’s status.
Coy said the governor’s personnel appointments will be announced this week.
Prior to his election as sheriff in 1999, Washington served as a Fluvanna County deputy and as a Virginia state trooper.

It was opening day at the Fluvanna Farmers Market on April 3. Once again the people of Fluvanna can buy truly locally grown fresh produce where the person they meet is the person who grew it. 
We are pretty strict about that. Co- manager Jutta Glasscock visits farms to be sure, if they say they grew it, they did!  We are unique among markets and CSA’s – where sometimes produce is purchased regionally for resale.

Shaun Kenney, who was named executive director of the Republican Party of Virginia on April 1, has taken on a tough job.
Republicans don’t hold a single state-wide office, Virginia’s two U.S. senators are Democrats, and the Virginia senate is under Democratic control.
The Republican Party is pinning its hopes on Kenney – the party’s former communications director – to turn their fortunes around. Kenney is also the former chairman of the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors.
