Chris Winslow, a 35-year-old Midlothian attorney and Navy veteran, is hoping to replace outgoing Chesterfield County Supervisor A.S. “Art” Warren when Warren retires later this year.
After twenty years on the board, Clover Hill District Supervisor Warren is stepping down (see Art Warren stepping down from Chesterfield board after 20 years).
Warren did not respond to several requests for comment, but he has notified the party of his intentions according to Donald C. Williams, chairman of the Chesterfield County Republican Committee and a resident of Clover Hill.
“Art has been has been prudent and deliberate in handling his business which sets him apart from other politicians,” Winslow said Saturday. “He’s going to be tough to follow. There’s no question.”
Winslow, who serves on the county’s Committee for the Future, said Saturday that if elected he intends to focus on the job growth and economic development in the county.
“I am very grateful to have the support and endorsement of Art Warren,” he said.
Williams, who says Winslow brings a “unique set of qualifications for the office,” said the attorney still needs to go through the nomination process before becoming the party’s official candidate.
As of now, “He is the only candidate I know of.”
Chesterfield would be fortunate to have Chris Winslow on their board.
