Election 2011


Henrico voters will cast their ballots for a number of local and state candidates Nov. 8, although most races offer little or no competition. But voters will have choices in four county races, as well as a race for a House of Delegates seat. The Henrico Citizen invited each of the 35 candidates for county or state offices who appear on the ballot in Henrico County this year to respond to seven general questions about their views, goals and personal lives. Each was permitted a 500-word response to the questions. The answers of those who responded by the deadline provided to them appear in this section. Some responses were edited to fit the 500-word requirement.

Henricus Historical Park to host Publick Day Sept. 20

Henricus Historical Park will commemorate its anniversary during Publick Day, a signature annual event that celebrates the establishment of the second successful English settlement in the New World. In September 1611, Sir Thomas Dale, along with soldiers, tradesmen and farmers, ventured from Jamestown to create the Citie of Henricus. Leaders of Henricus developed the first English hospital, chartered the first college in North America, established tobacco as the first cash crop in Virginia, and created a place where Pocahontas lived and met John Rolfe.

Publick Day will take place Saturday, Sept. 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free and parking is $5 per vehicle. > Read more.
