Mayor Deanna Reed and Laura Dent, both Democrats, and Independent incumbent George Hirschmann are leading the race for three seats on the Harrisonburg City Council, according to unofficial results released Tuesday night by the city registrar’s office.

Hendricks’ custom approach to the job

When Charles Hendricks meets a client who wants to build a house, it’s usually just a casual rap about their life: No drafting, no visualization, not even a plan for what the house will look like by the end. Rather than wasted time, Hendricks says his clients understand the method to the madness when he comes back with full blueprints of a design.
