Scottsville District Supervisor Chris Dumler is asking a judge to toss out the petition that’s been circulated by his critics.
Dumler has filed his request in advance of his upcoming trial in Albemarle Circuit Court. He has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor sexual battery.
County residents who want to end Dumler’s political career collected hundreds of petition signatures. His foes have mobilized at many public meetings. A judge must decide whether his legal troubles have hampered his ability to hold elected office.
