Candidates eye South Boston Council races / March 01, 2018

With less than a week remaining for candidates to file for South Boston Council, two incumbents — Bill Snead and Coleman Speece — have qualified to have their names listed on the May ballot.

Incumbent Councilman Winston Harrell has picked up a candidate packet to run for re-election, but has not yet qualified, according to Halifax County Registrar Heather Harding.

A third person, Sharon Harris, who serves on the Town’s Planning Commission, has completed the paperwork to have her name placed on the ballot for a regular four-year council seat.

Ken Buckley has filed papers seeking to run in the special election to fill the seat left vacant with the passing of the late Councilman Billy Clarke.

The interim council member, Michael Byrd, who was appointed by Council to fill Clarke’s seat until a special election could be held, has picked up a packet to run, but he has not indicated whether he will run for one of the three regular council seats or for the special election.

Clarke’s term ends on June 30, 2020.

In the meantime, all candidates for South Boston Town Council have until Tuesday evening, March 6 to complete their paperwork to be qualified to have their names printed on the ballots for the May municipal election.
