Lowery qualifies for November ballot / August 10, 2017
Interim Halifax County School Board trustee Monty Lowery has qualified to have his name placed on the ballot in November when voters go to the polls to select local representatives to the School Board and Board of Supervisors.

Lowery, trustee in ED-7, was appointed to the School Board earlier this year to fill an open seat with the resignation of Dick Stoneman for health reasons. He will be running in a special election in November to serve out the remainder of Stoneman’s term, through 2019.

The filing deadline for the ED-7 special election for School Board is Aug. 18.

No other candidates have filed for the race with the qualifying deadline eight days away.

Lowery, a lifelong county resident and 1990 graduate of Halifax County High School, owns General Fire Equipment, which outfits fire and EMS vehicles with a staff of four full-time and one-part time employee. The Ramble Road resident also is a 30-year volunteer with the Midway Volunteer Fire Department and has 12 years’ experience as Midway’s fire chief.

Elsewhere in the county, there is only one election district with more than one candidate on the ballot for School Board: in ED-3, where Sandra Garner-Coleman and Clinton Boone are vying to replace outgoing trustee Kim Farson.

Other School Board candidates with no competition on the ballot include Roy Keith Lloyd, in ED-2, and Todd Moser, in ED-6. Current board trustees in those areas are Karen Hopkins and Fay Satterfield, respectively.

Candidates for Halifax Board of Supervisors on the fall ballot are Jeffrey Francisco in ED-2, Hubert Pannell in ED-3 and Larry Giordano in ED-6. Pannell and Giordano are running for re-election.
