Hollis L. Tharpe, 66, officially announced Thursday that he is seeking re-election for Mayor of Front Royal on November 6, 2018.

Hollis is a Front Royal native and has been married to Deborah Stonebreaker for 25 years. They jointly have four (4) daughters, ten (10) grandchildren and three (3) greatgrandchildren – with a fourth on the way. Hollis proudly served in the United States Marine Corps. Hollis is a proud member of the Loyal Order of Moose, BPO Elks Lodge, the American Legion Post #53, and the Warren County Humane Society.

Mr. Tharpe was first elected to the Town Council in 2000 and served until 2004 and was elected again in 2010 & 2014; where he served as Vice Mayor from 2014-2016, being elected as Mayor in 2017. Hollis is proud to serve as part of a team to achieve the goals set forth by the Town Council, both past and present. He is currently serving as Mayor on a team that has kept Front Royal’s electric rates the lowest in the Commonwealth of Virginia, along with the some of the lowest rates for water in the Shenandoah Valley.

The work will continue, as Mayor Tharpe works as the leader of the Town Council to reduce the amount of tax increases, and provide the resources for an efficient and effective Police Department. Hollis wishes to continue his dedication of service that started with his Service to His Country.

“Let’s keep Front Royal a Town to be proud of!”  – Hollis L. Tharpe
