Jim Norwood—running against Christopher J. Dumler in Scottsville District—has exposed himself as a climate change denier

Jim Norwood, the Republican candidate for the Scottsville seat on the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors, against Democrat Christopher J. Dumler has been making waves—and not the good kind.

Last week, this supposed champion of fiscal conservatism was revealed to have hidden a multimillion dollar bankruptcy only two years ago. The Daily Progress reports:

According to court records, Norwood carried a total debt just over $2.4 million and carried assets worth $704,533. Among those assets was a property in Deltaville, a community on the Chesapeake Bay, and a Hatteras Yacht.

But his hypocrisy in taking on over three times in debt than he had in assets is not the only thing raising doubts about Norwood’s candidacy. Jim Norwood has also exposed himself as an avid climate change denier. During the final candidate’s debate, Norwood clearly stated that he did not believe that human activity was connected to climate, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. He even went on to cite snow in Maine as evidence against climate change, earning a quick rebuttal from Dumler.

Needless to say, Scottsville district does not need a man with Jim Norwood’s absurd stances replacing Democrat Lindsey Dorrier’s reasoned, moderate representation. Don’t forget to vote tomorrow—November 8th—for Christopher J. Dumler and all of our other excellent candidates. Email ben@albemarledems.org if you can help get the vote out!

In case you missed it, Supervisor Lindsay Dorrier announced his retirement this week.

The Albemarle County Democratic Committee wishes to thank Lindsay Dorrier for his many years of service to Albemarle County, as member of the Board of Supervisors, and as Commonwealth’s Attorney. He has been a strong advocate for the citizens of Scottsville and southern Albemarle, and has overseen the growth and changes in Albemarle. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.
