Compton endorses GOP incumbent Webert

Republican Delegate Michael J. Webert, who represents Rappahannock County in Richmond, has announced the endorsement of Rappahannock Sheriff Connie Compton, additional sheriffs from across the 18th District, as well as the Virginia Police Benevolent Association.

The 18th district of the Virginia House of Delegates covers all of Rappahannock, and portions of Fauquier, Warren, and Culpeper counties.

“I’m proud to have earned the support and trust of sheriffs from across the 18th District,” Webert said. “The law enforcement community is essential to keeping us, our children, and our community safe from harm. Sheriff Mosier (Fauquier), Sheriff Compton (Rappahannock), Sheriff Jenkins (Culpeper), and Sheriff McEathron (Warren) have all been a pleasure to work with over these past few years, and I look forward to continuing to build on our successes should I be re-elected on November seventh.”

Webert, a farmer, is serving his third term in the legislature. He sits on committees that include Militia, Police and Public Safety; Agriculture, Chesapeake, and Natural Resources; and Counties, Cities, and Towns. He and his wife Rebecca reside in Marshall with sons William and Ben.
