Halifax County Supervisors seek candidates for ED-3 seat

SoVaNow.com / February 04, 2014
The Halifax County Board of Supervisors announced today the process to be used in making an appointment for an interim board member for Election District 3.

Persons interested in being appointed to this seat on the Board of Supervisors must be a qualified voter residing in ED-3. People that vote at the Banister, Staunton River & Sunnyside Baptist Center or the Oak Level Fire Station or the American Legion Post 99 are eligible candidates for the ED-3 seat on the Board.

In order to be considered, they must submit a completed interest form to the County Administrator’s Office no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 21.

Interest forms may be obtained at the County Administration Building, 134 South Main Street, Halifax, or by calling the office at (434) 476-3300 X3303 or by downloading the interest form from the County’s website at http://www.halifaxcountyva.gov.

The Board of Supervisors will review the applicants for the position and schedule a meeting of the full Board at a later date to interview selected candidates.

State law requires the Board of Supervisors to make an interim appointment within 45 days.

The person appointed by the Board will serve until a special election is held in November. The winner of the special election will serve the remainder of the term until Dec. 31, 2017.

Should the person appointed by the Board wish to run in the special election, he or she must qualify for the ballot using the normal petition and signature process.

Does Halifax county still have seperate Water fountains for "Whites" and "Coloreds"? I thought we had gotten away from this kind of hateful racism. Do you think Eric Holder & DOJ wouldn't be investigating this if a White office holder made such a request? Just goes to show that not all of the racists in Halifax wear hoods.
