Upon reviewing the candidates for Sheriff in Franklin County, none mentioned Diversity within the Dept. This is an issue I feel would be an important topic.

Diversity? If you call 9-1-1 in the middle of the night do you ask them to send a white, black, red, yellow, male, female officer? Quincy Overton has been the BEST Sheriff Franklin County ever had, and his "diversity" was just fine with the people of the County for 32 years. I see you're from Charlottesville. Maybe you and your diversity should stay there.

So how do you people of Virginia feel about the idea of Army Base Fort Monroe being converted into a national historic park!?
