A Hanover County Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission member appointed by retiring Supervisor Elton J. Wade Sr. announced his bid Saturday for the Republican nomination to take Wade’s place.
Scott Wyatt, 51, said he plans to continue Wade’s emphasis on conservative values and limited government while supporting schools and public safety. He announced his bid Saturday afternoon at Treats & Treasures Country Store at Ellyson’s Garage in Hanover’s Cold Harbor District, which is the area he is running to represent.
Wyatt, an operations manager for Verizon, became chairman of the Cold Harbor District for the Hanover GOP last year and has been a member of the party for five years. He has served on the parks commission since 2006 and was elected chairman in 2008 and 2014. He said his experience in the private sector and as a longtime community member will give him perspective to hold Hanover government accountable.
“I believe in strong, conservative values ... limited government but transparent government so we’re open to the people so people can see how their tax dollars are used,” he said. “I want to carry that same mind-set that works in the private sector.”
Wade, who announced his retirement Friday, is throwing his support behind Wyatt.
Wyatt and his wife, Terri, have lived in the district for 23 years and have two daughters who attended Hanover Public Schools.
