Jenefer is pictured with Jasper, who served as her campaign dog for the 2017 and 2019 election. Jasper was a rescue, joining the family in 2012 at around 4 years of age. He was the life and soul of the party, and only settled down into old age a few months before he crossed the rainbow bridge in May 2020. We still miss him very much.

During her tenure, the Commissioner’s Office has upgraded technology and procedures to create a better customer experience, including a partnership with Virginia DMV to provide DMV Select services in the Commissioner’s Office at minimal cost to County citizens.
