Caroline County-Home to the State Fair of Virginia
The attraction and retention of business is key to Caroline’s future. Some of the important positions and votes Jeff has taken on business issues are covered in “Working for Caroline’s Future”. Elected officials who welcome local industry can provide a foundation for fostering a vibrant business community in Caroline.
Joining Senator Mark Warner, Congressman Rob Wittman and Virginia First Lady, Anne Holton was a “business highlight” of Jeff’s first year on the Board of Supervisors in 2008. While celebrating the ground breaking of the Virginia State Fair at the Meadow Event Park, birthplace of legendary Triple Crown Winner Secretariat, Jeff got a chance to experience work behind a real plow. He then took the opportunity to spend some time with a grandson of the famous equine athlete. The property has since been sold to Virginia Farm Bureau who will continue to operate the State Fair in Caroline.
