We are most fortunate to have a native Rappahannock candidate for the position of Circuit Court Clerk on Election Day, Nov. 2. Lavonne Adkins, who grew up and was educated in Rappahannock before getting her business degree from Shenandoah University, would bring a strong business background to the Clerk’s position. In addition, Lavonne has a long association with a large number of Rappahannock organizations. The office of clerk plays an important role in both representing and serving the public. Lavonne’s warm, thoughtful style and her broad acquaintance with people and resources in Rappahannock County make her an outstanding choice for our next Circuit Court Clerk.
