Debeic to contend for Council
SoVaNow.com / June 10, 2013The slate of candidates for the November general election continues to grow with Jim Debeic joining the ranks as a contender for South Boston Town Council.
Debeic, who serves on the board of the Halifax County Service Authority, is collecting signatures to run for the Council seat vacated by Connie Manning when she moved out of the area last year. The seat is now held by Morris Bryant, who was selected by Council members to fill the temporary vacancy, but who announced that he would not run in November.
The ballot for the Nov. 5 election will include races in three county election districts for Halifax County Board of Supervisors and Halifax County School Board, plus a countywide race for Commonwealth’s Attorney.
Both announced candidates for the prosecutor’s job — Mike Freshour and Tracy Quackenbush Martin — have turned in their signatures and are qualified to face off against each other in November.
Also turning in the required number of signatures to run for Board of Supervisors in ED-3 are Ray Owen, Arthur Reynolds and Earl Womack. They are seeking to replace William Fitzgerald, who is not seeking re-election.
In ED-6 Larry Giardano has qualified to run for the seat on the Board of Supervisors being vacated by Wayne Conner. John Voss has announced his candidacy in ED-6 but as of Friday he had not qualified for the ballot.
Christy Johnson has qualified to run for the Halifax Town Council seat in Ward D.
Candidates have until 7 p.m., Tuesday, to qualify to have their names placed on the ballot in November.
