Coleman joins lineup of candidates

SoVaNow.com / June 13, 2013
The lineup of candidates seeking local office is set for the Nov. 5 general election.

A Tuesday night deadline for candidates to get on the ballot passed with only one late filer coming forward — Margaret Coleman, who qualified for South Boston Town Council. A host of other contenders had announced their plans to run by the end of last week.

The ballot will feature competition for Commonwealth’s Attorney, and for Board of Supervisors and School Board in two of the three election districts where seats are up for grabs. Also, the open seat on South Boston Town Council has two candidates, Coleman and Jim Debeic, who previously announced his candidacy.

Other races and candidates include:

Commonwealth’s Attorney: Michael Freshour and Tracy Quackenbush Martin

Board of Supervisors, ED-2: Tom West

Board of Supervisors, ED-3: Norman Ray Owen, Arthur Reynolds Sr. and Earl Womack

Board of Supervisors, ED-6: Larry Giordano and John Voss

School Board, ED-2: Lisa Hatcher, Karen Hopkins and Ida Terry

School Board, ED-3: Kimberley Farson

School Board, ED-6: Rita Best and Fay Satterfield

Halifax Town Council, Ward D representative: Kristy Johnson

The Nov. 5 ballot will also feature an election for South Boston mayor to serve out the remaining portion of the term of late Mayor Carroll Thackston. Ed Owens is currently serving as mayor until the November election. The filing deadline to run for mayor is August 16 at 5 p.m.
