UPDATE: NOV. 3, 9:50 P.M. – Election night was a good night to be an incumbent in Henrico County.

"I promise you all that I will continue to work, every day, to keep our community safe and secure and to keep those crime rates going down," Taylor said in a statement after the election. "I promise to keep working smart – to do everything I can to make sure criminals are behind bars, that those suffering from addiction get treatment, that juveniles have the opportunity to get on the right track and those with mental illness get the help they need."
