Halifax County will receive an infusion of new leadership with two newcomers on the board of supervisors and three first-time candidates winning open school board seats.

In the two competitive races, it was write-in candidate Stanley Brandon in a landslide over ED-6 incumbent Larry Giordano, while in the ED-2 race for School Board, Sandra Garner-Coleman easily defeated Clinton Boone.

Brandon claimed 943 write-in votes to swamp Giordano, who received 500 votes — a 65-35 point win for the challenger.

Garner-Coleman took 885 votes in ED-2, while Boone collected 344, a 72-28 point split.

Also winning uncontested races for the board of supervisors were ED-2 incumbent Hubert Pannell and ED-3 newcomer Jeff Francisco, who will take over for Tom West with the longtime supervisor’s retirement.

In other school board races, unopposed candidates Roy Keith Lloyd, ED-2 and Todd Moser, ED-6 won first terms. In a special election to fill the unexpired term of departed trustee Dick Stoneman, the interim trustee, Monty Lowery, was given a vote of confidence by voters in ED-7.
