GLEN ALLEN, VA – Local entrepreneur and youth sports advocate Dan Schmitt announced today he is seeking the Republican nomination for Brookland District Supervisor in Henrico. Paperwork establishing the “Friends of Dan Schmitt” committee was filed last Friday in the Henrico Registrar’s office.

Dan is the president of RMC Events, a local company that boasts nearly 400 Henrico County citizens among its nearly 2,000 employees. He also volunteers as President of the Glen Allen Youth Athletic Association, which has approximately 2,500 participants annually. In addition, Dan represents Henrico on the Capital Region Airport Commission, appointed by the late Dick Glover.

Dan is running, in part, out of a desire to work together with other Henrico leaders to improve the County and serve the citizens of Brookland. According to his campaign website:

“Dan is a leader who believes cooperation is vital to keeping Henrico special. He wants to represent Brookland by working with fellow supervisors and County staff to increase a sense of community, to expand recreational opportunities, and to build upon the County’s economic prosperity for all who live, work, and play here - - all while keeping tax rates low.”

Dan knows healthy businesses and strong economic development efforts help everyone by providing jobs to citizens and tax revenue for schools and roads. Dan believes in the “Henrico Way,” which stresses fiscal discipline in order to pay for new schools, libraries, sports facilities, and paving roads.

Expressing his desire to put his enthusiasm to work for Brookland, Dan says:

“I’m fortunate enough to wake up every day and absolutely love what I do. Whether it’s within my business or volunteering in my community, I welcome the variety, chase opportunities, focus on flexibility, embrace the challenges, accept nothing but success, and refuse to settle for mediocrity. I will take this same attitude and passion to work for you as your next Henrico Brookland District Supervisor.”
