Incumbents to run in November town elections

SoVaNow.com / June 12, 2014


No surprises emerged as the deadline to file for town council elections in Halifax and Virgilina this November passed uneventfully Tuesday.

Incumbent council members and mayors of both towns submitted their paperwork to run again, with no new candidates expressing interest in seeking the offices.

In the Town of Halifax, Mayor Dick Moore filed to run for re-election, as did Council members Jack Dunavant, Kristy Johnson, Janice Powell and Dennis Witt.

In Virgilina, Mayor Ralph Murray Jr. filed to continue in office as did Council members Samuel Torian III, Kirke Hooper, Catherine Ellixson, Norman Talley, Thomas Tuck Jr. and Jason Johnson.

According to Halifax County Registrar Heather Harding, a special election will be held in November to elect the Clerk of Court and a new county supervisor in ED-3.

Since both are special elections, candidates for these two positions have until Aug. 15 to file paperwork for their candidacies.

Cathy Cosby, who is serving as interim Clerk of Court after the recent resignation of Bobby Conner, has filed to run for the office.

A political newcomer, Herbert Pannell, has already filed to run for the Board of Supervisors in ED-3. He is seeking to the vacancy created by the resignation of Earl Womack.
