In Virginia, county and city treasurers are elected to four-year terms and serve as chiefs of taxation. Victoria C. Phelps is the incumbent and is running unopposed for the office of Treasurer of Appomattox County.
Phelps, who was elected in 2019, was the only candidate certified by the Virginia Department of Elections this year, though voters can write in other candidates’ names if they choose.
Charlottesville Tomorrow designed a questionnaire based on more than 200 responses we received to a voter survey. Phelp did not provide answers.
