Virginia: Former Gloucester Supervisor who prompted changes to recall laws, looking to regain seat

The recall fight, which started after the Board fired the County Administrator and County Attorney in a closed meeting, resulted in a court decision slapping down a $2000 fine for each petitioner (overturned on appeal) because they tried to use the judicial process to overturn and election rather than wait for an election. A state law that prevented petitioners from being subjected to court costs or attorneys fees. The Supervisor, Teresa Altemus was easily defeated in the next election -- now she's running again.
