Reyes to run for Mecklenburg County Board of Supervisors

South Boston News
Reyes / April 24, 2019
Glenn Reyes of Clarksville is the first candidate to announce plans to seek the seat on the Mecklenburg County Board of Supervisors being vacated by Gregg Gordon

Gordon represents ED-9, covering much of the southern border of Mecklenburg County including Clarksville, Buffalo Junction and Nelson area. Gordon announced his intention to step down at the end of his current term at the end of the April meeting of the Board of Supervisors.

The election for the seat takes place November 5, and Gordon’s term ends once his successor is elected and sworn in to office, at the first meeting of the Board of Supervisors in 2020.

Reyes is a graduate of Bluestone High School who worked on the family farm and at Burlington Industries during and immediately after graduation from high school before joining the U.S. Air Force.

After being honorably discharged he held various law enforcement positions before joining the Department of Justice Immigration and Naturalization Service (now known as Homeland Security) where he was a public affairs officers and instructor at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC). At the time of his retirement Reyes was the Supervisory Special Agent for Homeland Securities Office of Investigations.

He returned to Mecklenburg County, where he lives with his wife Irene Parrish.

Reyes currently serves as a deacon at Williams Grove Church near Chase City, is a member of the Fraternal Order of Police of Northern Virginia #35, the National Rifle Association, the National Police Defense Foundation, Clarksville AARP and Clarksville YMCA. He is often called to speak on topics from foreign gangs and their influence on community, to instructing young adults about benefits of being professional and having manners.

Reyes said his hobbies include shooting at the firearms range, photography, public speaking, reading, traveling and being with family and friends.

The filing deadline for candidates for local office — including Board of Supervisors, School Board and constitutional offices — is Tuesday, June 11.
