We’re live at the Augusta County mass meeting for South River supervisor candidate

By Lynn R. Mitchell

6:30: Folks are milling around for tonight’s Augusta County mass meeting to vote for a supervisor candidate from South River. A bit of drama developed over the weekend when Augusta County Republican Committee Chairman Dan Moxley and former chairman Bill Shirley held an eleventh hour executive meeting Saturday afternoon to form a nomination committee to “qualify” the two nominees.

After stacking the nomination committee with friendlies to the two chairs, they proceeded to disqualify sitting supervisor Carolyn Bragg who was appointed to the board in March after the death of Supervisor David Beyeler, and allowed their nominee, Tanya Gigliotti, to be unopposed.

Mass meeting still on despite questionable actions by Augusta County GOP chair Moxley, former chair Bill Shirley

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Former Augusta County Chairman Bill Shirley and his hand-picked underling Dan Moxley have pulled a shady deal as was predicted by those who have been victims of their shenanigans in the past.

Late Sunday night they cancelled tonight’s planned mass meeting with this notice on their newly-formed Facebook page:


In accord with the Augusta County Republican Committee Bylaws, the Candidates and Nominating committee has presented the name of one qualified candidate to the Rules and Resolutions committee.  With only one certified candidate, the mass meeting is cancelled, and Tanya Gigliotti is the Republican nominee for the South River District Board of Supervisors seat.

Who is Tanya Gigliotti? And why has Carolyn Bragg, currently the sitting supervisor, been disqualified?

1. I suspect the nominee is a friend of Dan Moxley and/or Bill Shirley.

2. Despite the effort of Misters Moxley and Shirley, tonight’s mass meeting IS STILL ON.

All South River registered voters: Be at the Government Center at 6:30 tonight to vote for your candidate. This is why good conservative Republicans run as Independents in Augusta County.
