Vandever Wins Treasurer Special Election

Interim Charlottesville Treasurer Jason Vandever has won today’s special election to make his position official. The Democrat defeated independent candidate John Pfaltz handily, winning three-quarters of the vote. As NBC-29 points out, the low-turnout special election cost $19 per vote cast. Originally, Vandever was to remain interim treasurer until November, but city Republicans petitioned the court to hold a special election, promising the judge that they would nominate a candidate (which they then failed to do), leaving one of those petitioners—Pfaltz—to run.
