CAAR Endorses Szakos, Thomas, Dittmar

Members of the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors have endorsed candidates for local offices. The group picked three people they feel have the most familiarity with real estate issues and their positions on public policy matters. Charlottesville Democratic Vice Mayor Kristin Szakos was singled out for her efforts to facilitate a community water supply solution, and foster collaboration between the city and county. CAAR also endorsed candidates in two Albemarle Board of Supervisors’ districts. One is incumbent Republican Rodney Thomas of the Rio District. CAAR applauds his support of property rights and economic vitality, and his understanding of small business. The group also likes Democrat Jane Dittmar, who’s campaigning for the Scottsville District seat in a special election.
