Confroy, Duffey, Witt capture Council seats

SoVaNow.com / November 08, 2012
Town Council elections in Halifax and Virgilina, scheduled for the first time to coincide with the November general election, drew fewer votes than the marquee races, but produced some of Tuesday night’s closest outcomes.

In the Town of Halifax, where four candidates sought two at-large seats on Council, incumbent Councilman Bill Confroy led the balloting with 315 votes. First-time candidate Ronnie Duffey was close behind with 302 votes to claim the other seat.

Coming in third was Mike Sexton with 186 votes, followed by incumbent Councilman Holt Evans with 175.

There were no candidates listed on the ballot for a third Council seat in Ward B, but two write-in hopefuls stepped forward to contend for the seat — Dennis Witt and Sam Thompson. A member of the Electoral Board counting the votes confirmed that the tally was completed at 5 p.m. yesterday with Witt taking 13 of the write-in votes and Thompson collecting 9.

In Virgilina, where no seats were contested, Mayor Ralph Murray received 67 votes of confidence. Council member Norman B. Talley garnered 62 votes; Samuel M. Torian III, 60, and Catherine A. Ellixson. 59. Thomas Keith Tuck Jr. and Kirke C. Hooper each got 56 votes and Jason H. Johnson got 52.
