Voter Action: Politics 2022
The Voter Action issues group focuses on the political life of our county. Members meet monthly, help plan political events and work on campaigns that reflect the values of 50 Ways Rockbridge members. We have organized postcard-sending events, blanketed the area with information about candidates, registered voters and sought ballot signatures for candidates.

Watch and listen as Incumbents David Sigler and Chuck Smith and first-time candidates Nicholas Betts and Collette Barry-Rec answer a slate of pre-set questions.
“This is a rare opportunity for Lexington voters to hear from all the candidates directly,” said 50 Ways organizer Chris Gavaler. “And we’ve scheduled it right before the start of early voting, so folks will be ready to go to the polls with first-hand knowledge.”

How to get involved in public life:

Lexington, Buena Vista and Rockbridge County and its towns have a wide variety of boards and commissions, some in common, that rely on citizen members. All have elected positions that come open on a routine basis.

Below are examples of positions that are currently open or will become open this year:
