In Virginia, Commissioners of the Revenue are elected for four-year terms and serve as chiefs of taxation. Sara R. Henderson is the incumbent currently serving, and is the only certified candidate for the office of Commissioner of the Revenue for Appomattox County.
Henderson has served as Commissioner of the Revenue since 2011, when she won the position in an unopposed election. She ran unopposed again in 2015 and 2019. If elected, this will be her fourth term.
Henderson is the only candidate certified by the Virginia Department of Elections, though voters can write in other candidates’ names if they choose.
Henderson did not return a questionnaire sent by Charlottesville Tomorrow with questions regarding her office and candidacy.
