Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes for Chichester

Stafford County Commonwealth’s Attorney Daniel Chichester has announced that he will not seek an 11th term. This is Chichester’s 40th year as Commonwealth’s Attorney. He was first elected in 1970.

“The decision to retire from a job I still love to this day is not easy, but there comes a time for everyone in their professional lives, and my family and I think this is the right time,” Chichester said in a press release.

The Commonwealth’s Attorney is elected every four years. The next election for the position is in November.

I wrote a profile on Chichester last month.

    AMEN…..Thank You God! Please Stafford Citizens do your research before electing Eric Olsen. Who is suppose to run in Nov. Olsen didn’t win in Fredericksburg when he ran and shouldn’t in Stafford! He does things very unethical and injustice.

    Well KLD you have made some very strong, serious and legally defaming statements. against Mr. Olsen. Maybe you should go into more detail that will involve facts instead of opinion. If you can’t provide “FACTS” remember there are laws against defaming others.

    I think YOU are the one that should do your research before making that harsh of a statement KLD. Mr Olsen does not even live in Stafford which makes him ineligable so you don’t need to get your panties in such a wad! Also if you have ever spent any time with him you would know he is a very smart, kind and extremely intelegent man! Sounds like you may have been on the recieving end of the law in Stafford for which I am sure you got what you deserved!
