Bagby, Dunnavant, Everhart, Barshinger claim primary wins

Recount needed in Republican Commonwealth's Attorney race
POSTED: June 9, 10:05 P.M./ UPDATED: June 10, 8:06 A.M. – Jeff Everhart defeated Tony Pham by 32 votes to win the Republican nomination for the Henrico Commonwealth's Attorney seat tonight in one of the closest local races in recent history. A total of 17,963 votes were cast in the race; Shannon Dillon finished a distant third with 19 percent of the vote.

A recount will take place to decide the race. Because Everhart's margin of victory – 40.69 percent to 40.51 percent – was less than 1 percent, Pham is eligible to request a recount through the Henrico Circuit Court, which he has indicated he will do.

In other races, Siobhan Dunnavant won the hotly contested four-way Republican primary for the 12th District Virginia Senate seat, earning 38 percent of the vote to hold off former Virginia Delegate Bill Janis (30 percent), Republican strategist Vince Haley (22 percent) and attorney Ed Whitlock (9 percent).

Farming has a rich history in Henrico, but an uncertain future

As the summer begins, corn, wheat, soybeans, herbs and fruit are growing throughout Henrico County.

Despite surrounding three sides of Richmond and being the fifth most populous county in the state, Henrico is still home to 117 farms and 12,891 acres of farmland. County residents and leaders have been debating the role of farms in Henrico for the past 50 years. While few will dispute the beauty of historic Tree Hill Farm or Varina Farm, there is a wide spectrum of opinions as to what role farms should play in the future of the county.

Nowhere else in the county is farmland as expansive as in the eastern district of Varina.
