Architect of Attack on Cavilier Rifle and Pistol Club Defeated in Hanover

Republican challenger Wayne Hazzard defeated longtime incumbent John Gordon for the South Anna District Board of Supervisor's seat in Hanover County.  Gordon led the charge to shut down Cavalier Rifle and Pistol Club in Montpelier several years ago. Wayne Hazzard is a member of the NRA, and a solid, conservative, pro-gun rights candidate. Hazzard lost to Gordon in the Republican Primary in 1999.  Gordon left the party this year to run as an independent to avoid the cost of a primary campaign.

Members of the Board of Supervisors get to appoint planning commission members for their district and  Gordon's appointment to the commission played a huge role in Hanover's battle against Cavalier.  In the end, Cavalier was able to continue operation but under restrictions with which other ranges in similar areas do not have to contend.

Congratulations to Wayne on his victory.
